The Supermarket Guy V writing notes.

The Supermarket Guy V will take a few serious notes now and then. A book cannot be completely built on humor, but it highly will be. I am 1/3 rd finished, and have a long journey to go in completing it. Hope finding time to sit back, and write will come to me soon enough. I always think I got free time coming around the corner, then something happens to jam me up again.

The humor is spectacular and flowing so far. It takes a sharp turn in heading back in the same format as Part 1 of The Supermarket Guy, where it is based mostly on family humor. There is no race to save the hero's supermarket franchise from destruction, no race to save the population from nuclear destruction, and no race to save the world from a tyrannical world domination and eventual destructive type scenario. Part 5 goes back to Part 1, a simple format, dealing with personal relationships and personal problems. Bullying is always a feature in most of any book out there, and this one presents itself in many form…

The Supermarket Guy 5 progress report

The progress report on part 5 is not so bad. I had done a little work on it in the past week, but problems and too much work at my real job had suppressed any true progress on this new, but old novel to the series.

Fact is, it is as humorous as the best of my four novels, as it takes the reader back to a time where there was no I Phones. Smoking was cool. Diapers were maybe not used everywhere. And the hero is just a baby to teenager. He has to try to understand a life he was thrown into, where perhaps love was not entirely there for him, and caring came to him in the most unexpected places.

Cannot really get into to much into the details, but he definitely will suprise everyone with his mediocrity, perhaps, or true talent and become a hero in another small way...

Maybe he may even meet one of his old nemesis, by mistake, not even knowing his real name!

Well, I hope I can get the time to finish it off, but I am behind schedule. But who is really waiting for me to finish it, anyways..…

The Supermarket Guy # 1 for 2017 Ebook Humor at New Apple Literary Summer Ebook Awards!

This time I finally won an award... On my second try to another contest...

Would like to thank New Apple Literary for chosing "The Supermarket Guy" # 1 in their Humor Category for their 2017 Ebook summer reading contest!

Here is the link to view :  http://www.newappleliterary.com/2017ebook/2017ebookCat12.html

Very thankful, and surprised, as usual the last few months have been relatively hard on my writing time. I had entered the book in another contest, but this contest seemed to place my book at # 1.

When I went to visit the award winners list, I ultimately did not expect to see my name up there... At all. This was an incredibly, splendid surprise, and it does provide me with enough boost to finish Part 5 of "The Supermarket Guy"

Everyone needs some good news every now and then. And I truly hope whoever reads this, that you out there, can get some good news too!

Thanks to the fans, and readers, for following, and reading.

The Supermarket Guy 4 fails to win award at book contest.

Little while ago, I entered Part 4 of my series into a book award contest. If it did really well, or even finished within the top 10, I would have been very pleased. It did not win any awards. It sort of descended my fervor for writing. Part 5 is probably 25 % complete, but when looking at the results of years of work, and not really cracking any true following or interest among my works, it is as if a heavy thousand pound anchor of lead has been attached to my pencil, and I cannot bear myself to write any longer.

Ok. Maybe half of that up there is not true. The latter. I met a guy I used to work with at the local market here, and he has started to write books. Maybe I had something to do with it, as I told him how easy it was to do, such a long time ago. Maybe he would have found his way without me, but I still think when when talked he had a strong link to what I was doing, and in spirit felt he could do the same.

My books on Goodreads had great reviews in the past month. Two 5 on …

The Supermarket Guy 5's progress report

The Supermarket Guy 5 is going very well. The main crux of the beginning chapters of the book is complete. Of course, the 'crux', the most pivotal point, most important point, is at the first of the book. It sometimes cannot be at the 2/3 rds or 3/4 length of the book. The 'crux' has mass, it has importance, and is the very vitality of the whole series. Nonetheless, it is at the beginning. Something so improbable that it could not have happened without some sort of luck or divine intervention.

It somewhat parallels how the "Star Wars" series started from the later parts, and the front parts came later in time. We remember how the "Dumb and Dumber" franchise went back to their high school days, and perhaps how successful the story becomes determines maybe how far back you can go with that to stretch the story out to make it all link together to your later series.

Part 5, not sure if a Part 6 would fit in between Part 1 and Part 5, but it is possible…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…

The Supermarket Guy V coming along very well!

The Supermarket Guy V is coming along very well. The first few pages are solid, and it takes in a time back before the main character was born, near the time close to the late 70s. No internet, no color TV in his house, and allot of TV dinners. A true nuclear family!

The cover is nearly drawn out. Have to rearrange and change a few things, but things are working well on that front too. New characters are drawn into the novel, as well as a few old. Hoping this novel will focus more on the little simplicities of life that we often forget, and situations and things that are still ongoing today.

Maybe will be able to print in the fall, just a cheaper E book version...

Got to go, business calls.
