back in 2005 i had a black suburban known as Chrome-less because there was no chrome. we splashed the paint over the chrome when we painted the suburban black. Chrome-less fell off the trailer while loading it to head south because the transmission blew up. my dad changed out the suburban body and mounted a 46 chevy cab, fenders and box to be a hot rod truck driving around brandon MB for a fellow. my loss was someone else gain. amazon still has my step by step book for free which is my loss your gain.

one of the features on amazon other then having a freshly released new book go to #1 in new release is the look inside option. this is a nice feature because you can see how the book is laid out and do a test read for your enjoyment. just like in marriage today, nobody waits for the Honeymoon for the fun to begin, everyone enjoys a few test drives before the Honeymoon these days. i like the look inside option because this is the only way to see what my books look like until a few Kingdom Followers purchase my books then send me pictures and tell me what it is like. due to the covid 19 lock downs, we Canadian authors can not get our FREE author copies mailed to us to be proofread. oh well to me this is a minor detail in my struggles in life. once you click on the look inside option, the book will appear as several test read pages. i like things tight with no spaces, no tabs in on sentences and font 14 for easy reading. i can squeeze in 35,000 words, 34 pictures (not sure if in colour being colour blind) in to a 150 page book which is a good size of book according to amazon. please enjoy because i am working on the next one in the Winter Road Series which is my book 12 of my writing career.

i have been working on the 1st book in my 3 book series on winter roads which span from 1996-2020. these books explain the fun i had and the learning i did in building, traveling or becoming famous for 15 seconds on national TV around the world. the 1st book is called Winter Roads: My Struggles (mine campf if you want to add humour to the present day lock downs that i am under in northern manitoba, lol) which is from 1996-2007. i hope to have the book finished this week to join my 7 other books on amazon. my 4th book is still FREE on amazon. when looking for pictures for my books that were on the 35mm film, i found this picture of the 37 Dodge as work truck in 1993 after my DIEvorce when i had nothing.

on friday during the heat of the day, i took Thor in to WHO-ville to xena's house. we used the air on the truck to air up the tires on the quad since they went flat over the winter. it is a lot easier using Thor then anything else. "yes" the quad is parked in a steel shed because WHO-ville is the new Detroit Michigan of the north with lots of crime and town water we can't drink plus high taxes. being a famous 5 Star Amazon Author i might be moving to Cuba to live and write my books like Ernest Hemingway did because it is the same lock down rules i am living under now plus warmer.

after the DIEvorce i was left with obsolete equipment to make a living. the 15B dragline loaded a lot of scrap metal with the 36" magnet. the 37 Dodge which i am making famous in my Naughty Natalie Book Series for being a fast truck was my work truck. the rear-end and transmission got changed out and replaced in the truck of speed to a truck of slow speed but making me money. oh the memories plus i had all my hair on top of my head back then too.

it was just a normal day in the Kingdom with snow on the 39 chevy to remind us we still have 2 months of winter in the Great White North. plus i am not sure what i did but some of my books with Stars showed up as a group on amazon so i snapped a picture. i am very pleased to have this many Stars on the usa amazon because it is a tough market for only having books released at the end of january. with more snow coming, i made a list of the 15 books i will have on Amazon before summer. also summer for us is the 5 hot days we get in july then it is back to winter.

i am thinking of using this picture of the Screaming Ford for my 12th book cover Winter Roads: 15 Seconds of Fame. i am unable to use any Hollywood pictures from when we filmed on the advise of my lawyer who is one of the best that advertises on TV after midnight. plus i like using all my pictures because i took them and being colour blind i like the colours.

 

it is the last day Amazon has my second book on for FREE down load on Kindle. please enjoy and share it well.

it was a quiet day in the Kingdom and i was able to get my 4th book on amazon. 6 hours later it was released and people can enjoy my book that took over 10 years to bring in to print. the hardest part about getting the book together was the fact i wrote most of the story while i was drinking professionally. yes, most of the ends of all the stories had to be re-written because i was shit face drunk and made lots of mistake. i thought i need the booze to be creative but that only created some very creative mistakes. now writing sober is a lot easier plus less mistakes too.

i am very pleased with "all" the 5 star ratings i am getting for my books on amazon which do not have the professional covers, they are not professionally edited, they are not on the amazon ad campaigns. these books are all done from a 10'x30' shack down by the tracks in a gated community all because of the covid 19 lock downs. so i think i am making the best of being locked down by bettering myself with my stories of the fun and difficult times i have had in my life. as a single parent of a daughter and published author plus on national TV for 15 seconds around the world. also these pictures were taken last night before bedtime and i woke up to my 6th book Love is Trust having another 5 star rating added over night.

with my 3rd book the KoO Ladies at #2 in cdn amazon Love and Romance plus a 5 star rating on the usa amazon. it is time to get my 4th book finished and on amazon as an adventure book because having 4 books out of 6 in the Love and Romance section might bring love from a woman. who in the end will leave with my white suburban and flat screen TV as a parting gift like the other ladies in my life. the cover for my 4th book will be this picture of the TD-9 known as Bad Business by the crashed DC-3 which was a 20 mile drive across a frozen lake. not many people take a 60 year old cat in 2009 for that kind of a trip.

oh my is all i have to say about my 3rd book getting a rating of 5 stars so quickly because of my writing style. i was drinking professionally when the stories were written over 10 years ago about the ladies in my life and how they teased me. some of the stories were written at the remote cabin which also created a lot of excellent pictures like this one. amazon has my 3rd book FREE on kindle Ebooks for the next 5 days so please enjoy and share it well.

i needed a selfie picture and the staff took a few pictures but the shiny chrome mirror is in the way in most of the pictures. this summer it is on the to do list to paint over the chrome because chrome does not get you home or make you money in the frozen wastelands of the great white north. plus covid 19 lock downs are coming up to 1 year now and this might be the only picture or time i had my face covered because of the cold wind. plus having my nose covered with a scarf fogs up my trademark dark sun glasses too. it is a good thing the staff handles all the mail and shopping in the town of WHO-ville wearing her pantie mask to get in the buildings which they only allow 5 people at a time inside.

the 3rd book is getting close to being released after over 10 years in storage. i think it is best that the book "plates" for my 3&4 books were lost because they were only in rough copies when my publisher went out of business due to covid 19 lock downs. now i have taken my stories from memory sticks and organized them. the 3rd book in the King of Obsolete Book Series will be about my ladies and the 4th book will be about my adventures based from 2003-10. that way the 3rd book can be #1 in Love and Romance and the 4th book can be #1 in Adventures on Amazon.
