THE NEW BOOK IS HERE

February 12, 2015

rWell fats finally finished his fourth book the second in the Samuel S. Sampson thriller series and got it to amazon. It’s now available for purchase along with his other titles. It took him longer than usual to get this book done. I asked him about it and he said, well there was vacation and some other things that popped up that slowed the process. Well you know I wasn’t going to let him get away with just saying other things. He finally relented and told me he had gotten some criticism that made him think he was just wasting his time but after he came back from his vacation he just said fuck it he didn’t care writing made him happy so he was going to keep going. I have to say I’m glad because having him sit around and do nothing is a real drag. I mean I have to try and entertain him during my siesta time. Anyhow the book is out there it deals with a missing child and some crazy rich people it’s titled A CHILD GONE MISSING. You can get it as an E book for Kindle or if you don’t have a Kindle you can get a free app from Amazon. It’s also out there on barnesandnoble.com and in print at amazon.com and createspace.com. If you get a copy he would like you to review it at amazon you don’t have to write a great one it’s just to show amazon that there’s some interest in the book. Well that’s all I got today so this is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAJust a couple more things referring to yesterdays post have you seen the business news lately and how Facebook and Amazon are going around and buying every company they can? Well they are and now if you want to get rich it’s like the old dotcom days. Just start a company, have it do something along the lines of a social network or package distribution. And one of these two behemoths will come along and offer you an unreal sum of money to sell to them. It’s almost immoral the kind of money that they talk about for basically office space. Some of these companies have great ideas but really haven’t been able to get the proper financing to put them over the top. While others simply have an app or do something that one of the two companies feel they could make better use of or might actually be better than anything they could come up with. You know like a better steak knife or apple peeler. When one big company buys a smaller one they usually do what referred to as cherry pick it assets before throwing the rest away and that includes its employees. It boils down to this a couple of people get rich potential competition is destroyed and everybody else gets screwed. Hey this has been fun don’t forget tomorrow is mischief night and Friday is Halloween. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

xxxxxxxxxxxxSorry there was no post yesterday but Jeff is busy trying to build a model railroad. It particularly hard down here because no one sells accessories so he either has to wait till he has money and order from Amazon since they’re the only ones willing to deliver to Colombia. He’s in the final stages of building the table today. If it doesn’t fall apart again I’ll post first stage picture tomorrow. Jeff is also trying to reedit his book Death Comes Home. He found that the original was somewhat corrupted and is trying to figure out how. He finally got his Magic Jack account paid and wants to talk to some of his friends as well and of course you know we’re bot hold so we to take naps every now and then. So if you don’t see a post don’t worry as soon as we get our routine down we’ll be back to normal. In the mean time everything is cool hope everybody is well. This is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

IT’S FINALLY HERE

March 28, 2014

Poster2Well Jeff finally finished his book and published it on amazon.com. You can get it for Kindle or in paperback as well as his first two books ILF an intelligent life form and Ilf cat and assassins. If you don’t have a Kindle you can get a free app at amazon to read the book on just about any device. This one took a long time and I don’t know if that means its better or not but we hope you give it a try. If you do please write a review even negative reviews will help with us with amazon. The reason there was no post yesterday was the internet down would crash every time I tried to post or download something, I’ll probably post something over the weekend to make up for it.

REVIEW NO 2

I find it difficult to try and review books beyond the fact that I greatly enjoyed it, after all if it wasn’t for spell and grammars check I wouldn’t be able to write my name. But if you want me to review the story I guess I should get started. The main character is a government assassin by the name of John Milton who in this book develops a conscience and decides to quit. Well you the big boy s can’t have that so we see how they and John handle it. Mr. Dawson weaves a story that will prevent you from putting it down until you’re done. Now obviously I’m a big fan of the spy story thanks to my mom getting me to read Ian Fleming and then Robert Ludlum and others. I can’t say more about this book other than I highly recommend it and others in the series so look for more of John Milton by Mark Dawson. This is your new book reviewer Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin, Colombia.

Monday Monday

December 2, 2013

garfield_monday1It’s Monday and you know how they have different meanings to everyone. To Jeff’s wife Ruby it means she’s going to be babysitting Hari. For me and Jeff it’s just another day of book writing and Blogging. For a good part of the world it means back to work and for some back to the search for work. This Monday is also called Cyber Monday it’s the biggest electronic shopping day of the year. Companies like Amazon and other similar stores all over the world sit back and count the money. Now you cna get some good deals today but only if you can get free shipping or have the option of picking it up at the store. But like any other sale day you have to know what the item originally sold for so you can tell if you’re getting a good deal or not. You really have to watch the sales that say a percentage off like 30% these discounts or off the full retail price meaning you might be paying more than you could have yesterday. I’ve seen prices change on amazon and other sights as I’m looking at the item. This happens because they have a demand for the product and as they get less in stock the price goes up. Well it look like we wandered away from the original topic which was Monday as I said it means different things to different people but we think it’s just another day and you what for a whole lot of people in Colombia that’s just what it is. If they work in a little shop or restaurant it’s a seven day work week or if they’re lucky a six day work week. When you live in the US you can get spoiled working those five day work weeks and of course people complain about that because they can’t have off on Saturday and Sunday. So if you’re going to work today you have our sympathy we’ll be sure to think of you as we roll over on the couch. This a happily retired Jeff and Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.
