My long awaited book, “Building your new in Belize, the Good, Bad and Ugly” is Published!

It took 2+ years down the bumpy road to get our house here in Belize built to completion. It seems like it took that long to get this book published!

The editing on this book was quite a challenge, as I wasn’t writing from scratch, rather taking an existing blog and converting it to a book form. In addition to that, I was adding more info and photo’s. In order to do this, I had to buy a new software program called “Pressbooks”, learn it, and by “trial and error”, convert it to Amazon/Kindle format so I could publish it! Not as easy as they said.

Spending weeks just getting it together, converted and now published, resulted in a good book, i believe. The program wasn’t absolutely perfect, as somehow, even after multiple edits and “reviews”, a couple sections were repeated, and one “deleted” found its way back into the finished product. But, that being said, I believe the book will accomplish what I started out to do,

Help people make the decision to build, choose wisely, and not make all the mistakes and bad decisions I did.

Its available on Amazon, both in a “download” instantly to your smartphone, iPad, or computer, or to purchase as a hard copy. Once you order the hard copy you should recieve it at your door in 2-3 days.

As It’s a new release, having reviews is important for position on Amazon. Therefore, I make you this “special offer”. If you order my book, please post a honest “good” review, and bang me off a email that you did (to:, and I will send you a suprise ro your email “inbox”.

Also, if you have any questions, send them the same.

I hope my book can help some people out during their process, as it could have helped me 🙂

Good Luck,

    Loved your book. Thanks for sharing! Have you found an affordable source for smoker pellets in Belize? The best I have seen is about $125 US for 20 lbs of pellets.

    • There is a hardware store in Spanish Lookout that was carrying them. “Affordable” is another story. What I did for mmy Traeger, I filled a 55 gal plastic barrel with bags of pellets to use down here.I also bought an “egg” (Vision Smoker/Grill) that uses coal, which is cheap here.
