Operation BBQ ressurection

I've been wanting a weekend project for quite some time since moving to the Gold Coast and finally with a free weekend up my sleeve and the hankering to get messy with a couple of afternoons of DIY, I found a suitable candidate. A 6 burner hooded BBQ that really needed a second lease on life.

So...Almigo to the rescue then!
Turns out (once again) that it was quite the adventure,

Who is this idiot with the bells on his head? #freebie

My new book is set to be released on Sept 22 and it's fair to say that I'm excited. Stupidly excited.

So excited in fact that I want to give you a preview copy of it right now. No tricks, traps or me turning up one day to repossess your Ferrari - just the first third of the book. If you like it, feel free to grab the rest of this latest adventure for the stupidly low price of 99 cents US..

Leon, you've lost us.

Fear of a red bottom. And a three way with aliens.

While momentarily working on my lastest book (Court Jester of the Castle...it's taking a while but slowly getting there) I spared a thought for my other two books and decided a brief jaunt down affordable advertising road probably wouldn't go astray, now that I've finally gotten rid of a shed load of debt.
However I had to stifle quite a big round of laughs when I saw some of the books the service I was contemplating using were promoting..

Not this one. I'd probably sell a million books next to this one.

Bad day behind the furniture desk

Well it was a simple plan - find a well priced recliner suite to replace our ageing and oversized chaise lounge setup that had seen better days. And after a couple of weeks of searching, pricing and parking our bums on ever seat we could find, we finally found the one to buy.
So we did.

And then things started to get strange after that...
