Good Gus Books, Children Books, CowboysEverywhere you look there are enticing adverts.  They are continually advertising for cures for everything.  They claim that it is a simple trick that they figured out at home.  Then after a long video or several pages of text trying to reel you in, they have a product to sell.  It is usually a book or another video.  We all know nothing is for free.  Yet, they make the adverts appear as if they are willing to share their new found secret with you for absolutely no cost.   Then, there are the adverts that tell you the product is free.  However, the shipping and handling is more than the product and the shipping.  Shipping and handling is just another way to add to the bottom line.  Rather than claim they are doing you a favor by shipping the product you just purchased, the companies should admit that they are not satisfied with their profits for the product, but want more.  When I sell a Good Gus book, the shipping is as close to the exact rate as possible.  There is no handling as it is my responsibility to provide the envelope and go to the post to send the books.  The adverts for purchasing furniture or large home products at least will tell you that if you purchase a certain amount you will receive free delivery.  There are areas in the world, though, that no matter how much you spend, there is still no free delivery or even set-up.  Since there was only one small newspaper in Pecos, there were no adverts until an event came to town such as the Rodeo.  In book four, Johnny the Cat and Bronco Ride that Bull, the rodeo does indeed come to town with lots of excitement.  The series is always available on Kindle worldwide and if you are tired check out Mae’s Story Time on You tube.  If you are fed up with all the crazy adverts, take a quick reading break for “Misplaced Trust.”  It is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Playster,  Scribd and Tolino.
