Good Gus Books, Cory Returns, Children StorySpeculation is part of daily business.  Home builders when the economy is doing well will build a number of homes on spec.  They believe that people will purchase the homes because they are readily available.  Unfortunately, when the housing market goes into a  slump, the builders often liquidate.  It is not great for their bottom line but it is excellent for the consumer.  The stock market in any country is a huge speculation.  The experts predict but they are not always right.  There are individuals such as Warren Buffet who do quite well and follow trends.  He started with speculation and turned it into a multi-million dollar operation.  Even in his eighties, he is still savvy to the stock market and does quite well.  The stock alone, for even one share of Berkshire Hathaway, is quite expensive. Many parts of our daily lives are speculation.  If you are planning a trip, you may calculate, speculate and assume certain factors.  It may go according to plan, or you could end up stuck in traffic, delayed at an airport, or the entire trip could be affected by weather.  We plan and hope for the best.  How often have you driven somewhere only to end up sitting in traffic because of an accident, sudden bad weather, or construction?  In the Good Gus series, in book three, “Cory Returns,” which by the way is currently sold out, an unexpected event causes him to be stranded.  It’s available along with the rest of the published series on Kindle worldwide.  Don’t forget for those long days when you are tired, Mae’s Story Time on You Tube is always on the net.  If you are speculating your next move, take that quick break to read “Misplaced Trust” which is available on 24 Symbols, Apple, Nook, Kindle, Kobo, Page Foundry, Playster,  Scribd and Tolino.
