A Native Supernatural Novel

Junior Constable Barry Mannette, a well-built, long-haired Native from the Anawatna Reserve with slight Shamanic healing abilities, is content at his job with the Tattonville Township Police. He is married to Senior Constable Linda Mcenna, a short but muscular motorcycle cop, and they are supervised by their boss, a large and friendly Jamaican man, Sergeant Alan Parks

But when RCMP Staff Inspector Rene Alou and CSIS office head Agent Andrew Reed head up the secret construction of a training compound in their small central Ontario town, the officers not only have to contend with the possible privacy issues the compound would bring, but also with the murderous rage of a long dead Shaman that the construction has unleashed. (Wholesale ordering of TATTONVILLE is available at this website for your bookstore, shop, library, or event.)

Slot Machines: Fun Machines or Tax Machines? A Technician Reveals the Truth About One-Armed Bandits

Written to explain how slot machines actually work, this book breaks all rules the other books adhere to: I do not tell you how you can win at or beat the slots. I tell you how slot machines are designed and how they operate. I tell you the truth about slot machines. You will learn about odds and probability, percentage, the Random Number Generator, and just how rigid gaming regulations are.

By understanding how slot machines work, it gives the reader the tools they need to help control problem gambling. Many people have told me that after reading my book, they are better able to either get a grip on their slot machine gambling addiction, or to beat it entirely.

As a former Slot Machine Technician for two major North American casinos, my eighteen years as a slot machine technician has allowed me to research slot machine gambling addiction in the exact environment where it happens: right in the gaming venue! Even with all the triggers and stressors that initiate or propel problem gambling that are treated by problem gambling counsellors, such as obsessive/compulsive behaviour, family and peer environments, mental conditions, and so forth, I found that there was something missing in the treatment and research programs. By observing and talking to patrons, it was obvious that the major stressors and triggers that initiated or propelled slot machine addiction were beliefs in the myths, misconceptions, and urban legends about slot machines that are found throughout movies, televisions shows, and books.

Slot Machines: Fun Machines or Tax Machines? A Technician Reveals the Truth About One-Armed Bandits dispels those myths and misconceptions and shows the reader the real way slot machines operate. If you or someone you know has a problem gambling issue with slot machines, get or give a copy of my book and read it with an open mind and willingness to know the truth.

Slot machine problem gambling may break up marriages and families, cause undue financial hardship or criminal activity from trying to get money to gamble with, and in extreme severe cases, may even result in suicide or murder. Don't let slot machine problem gambling destroy you or someone you love. Education about and understanding of slot machines are the first line defence mechanisms to controlling slot machine addiction.
