Happy Labor Day!!

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their Labor Day weekend. Labor Day is observed by American workers in the the United States. I would love to know if it is celebrated outside the U.S. So feel free to let me know. Workers began celebrating the holiday with the first Labor Day Parade in New York City in 1882.  I will be marching in this year's Labor Day Parade in New York City next Saturday.  I am proud to be union affiliated.  This year, our business manager, Chris Erikson,  will be the Grand Marshall of the parade. We will be marching early down 5th Avenue in New York City on September 6, 2014.

I will take pictures of the parade and share when the time comes. I will dig up some old Labor Day photos. I want to acknowledge blog readers from Europe stopping by to read my posts. I thank you for stopping by! I have a block of readers from Turkey as well!

People in Brookings, Oregon Know About My Book!

Hello Everyone!

I wanted to share a story my sister, Kim, recently mentioned to me.  Kim was at a country music festival in Oregon where she lives.  I also grew up in Oregon.  I left right after high school and joined the Navy.  I never returned after my service and moved to New York 20 years ago this month.  My sister was telling some neighbors, where she was camping, about my book.  The lady stopped her and said she had another friend tell her about the book already!  The lady probably did not believe my sister at first (based on her reaction).  I guess it is a small world since this woman had already knew about it before my sister could tell her.  I enjoyed the story since it pleases me that people across the United States know about the book.  Please continue to share the news about the book.  I am still waiting for comments or feedback on my social media sites or on the blog.  I would really like feedback from people outside the United States.  The feedback would be very important for me to know who would enjoy the book more!

Some of my most random thoughts and observations (trained to think like a guy, of course) can be found on Twitter.  I am a little more tame on Facebook.  I think my thoughts are a little more raw and edgy on Twitter.  Enjoy the blog and thanks for reading as always!

Cheers! (bottoms up because it is Friday bitches!!)

Hello again!

I am attaching the link to IPR License out of England.  I most recently signed up with this new company in an effort to attract an international deal.  If you or someone you know may find my book on my journey to become a female electrician almost 20 years ago in New York appealing, please reach out.  People have found the book unique and rather funny!  Have a great day everyone!

Construction Tales- Featured in IPR License Magazine at Beiijing Book Fair the end of August 2014

Hello everyone!

I hope you are all doing well!  Enjoy the summer while it lasts.  I have laid off of book signings so that I can enjoy my summer.  Now it is time to start reaching out to libraries to see if they would like to hear about the book.  I do have a director reading the book right now.  I look forward and plan to share the feedback when it comes in.  I did sign up with England's IPR License in an effort to attract an international deal for the book.  I shall see how that goes.  As part of joining, my book will be featured in the next edition of IPR License Magazine for August.  I was promised a mailed copy when it is finished.  I will be scanning and sharing when that becomes available.  I also have agreed to pay for an ad to be featured in the IPR License Magazine edition for October.  This magazine will be distributed at the German Book Fair.  I have a decent amount of blog traffic from Germany.  I would love to hear feedback from Germans about the book.  Please feel free to post comments on your opinion.  I am working on getting the book translated into German and released on the market on Amazon in the near future.  I would also like it translated into Spanish as well.  In due time.

I would welcome investors if there are any out there who see a great international market to tap into for Construction Tales.  I can be contacted through IPR License and The Combined Book Exhibit.  If I hear any good news, I will be sure to blab, blab, blab away.  I am on Facebook/Twitter/Instagram/Google so add me and leave comments.  I would love to hear from potential readers!  I need to get it in gear and write Volume 2.  It is a process I have started and put on the back burner.  However, as the summer wraps up I will work on making that second volume become a reality.  I am off to enjoy the rest of the day with my younger son.  I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!  Thanks for reading and stop by again soon!

Regards and Cheers!
