hello everyone!

Every once in awhile, I find things that I have not previously shared. Today, I found some videos where I was speaking during an Independent Authors Book Expo a few years ago in New Jersey. I did some video clips for an author and she returned the favor. I reviewed my adult version is entitled, Construction Tales: Volume I: A Woman’s Journey to Become an Electrician. My edited teen version is entitled, Construction Tales: A Young Person’s Guide To Accomplish Anything In Life. I felt like the book was too raw for young readers- I would be embarrassed if a kid read my adult version of the book. I felt better by trying to remove cursing and nasty coworker antics. The message of keep pressing on with your plan and not giving up is a strong message for young people. It didn’t initially occur to me that I should edit the book until after the initial release. I then read the book in a recording studio and loaded it to #Audible. If the teen version picks up with interest, I will sit in the studio and do an audio version for the teen edition. I am sure there will be a cringe moment involving my book and a young reader in the future. Luckily, I have not encountered that…. yet.

Just so you know, I will publish any book reviews, good or bad, that have been submitted to me. I have published a few reviews so far from friends and coworkers. I even took a negative comment from a reader and applied the feedback to the teen version. I promise I won’t come after you with my masculine energy if you have a critique. I handle it decently- like a dude. I have worked with men for most of my career. I have learned to not be emotional and leave feelings out of feedback- no matter where it comes from in life. That is unless you come at me like a savage troll, I will unleash my construction laden venom. I fear no woman on the planet and very few men. As I have asked previously, I will accept topic ideas (except politics or religion) for future podcast episodes.

I have attended a handful of Independent Authors Book Expos- all held at various locations in New Jersey. I got to meet some cool visitors, authors, illustrators, editors, and poets at the events over the years. I would like to find other similar style book fairs to attend- once Covid-19 finally ends up being viewed in the rearview mirror. Here are the two videos from the Independent Authors Book Expo held in New Jersey:

As always, I am grateful for you stopping by my content for the book and podcast. You have many choices. I am honored that I have been considered for your valuable time. We are working on some more podcast episodes to be released over the weekend. Podcast episodes are available on Spotify, YouTube, and Soundcloud. I have a profile on Soundtrap as well where I create my content. At some point, I will work on getting onto iTunes and other avenues where I can sneak in. 🙂 Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!

Cheers!
