More About the Author

Kevin Domenic has been writing fantasy novels since age fourteen. Born in 1980, Kevin grew up in Thomas Edison's hometown of West Orange, New Jersey. Now living in St. Louis and pursing his writing career, Kevin's goal is not to create books, but worlds.

Much of Kevin's writing is based on his faith in Jesus Christ. While "The Fourth Dimension" takes a more abstract look at the concept of a Creator, his book "Building Blocks" focuses on the difficult questions facing Christians and addresses subjects such as faith in the face of tragedy, the hypocritical behavior within certain churches, and the process of growth through hardship.

When he isn't writing or working his full-time job, Kevin enjoys gaming, watching hockey, playing guitar, and of course, spending time with his wonderful fiance.

Although his current focus is the Fourth Dimension series, other unrelated projects are in the works as well.

Retail Ramblings is such a fun read and I laughed so hard at some of the customers he had to deal with. I also am guilty of some of the bad behavior (especially when I was younger) so I can relate and will show more courtesy to those in retail.

Clearly, Kevin is a very talented author; this book provided him a way to vent, but also showed he had a remarkable sense of humor about the whole, long eleven years. His frustration with his "evil" boss showed some of the pressures that the low-paid retail workers face and it is a wonder that anyone in retail smiles at all. I found this book not only very funny, but enlightening enough to show the retail-worker's plight. If you are in retail, customer service, or are a customer - YOU NEED THIS BOOK!

Better Than Chocolate

This book is funny. It had me laughing within the first few pages and I could certainly identify with the big box superstores (particulary electronic) that he focused on. I also laughed at some of the obnoxious customers he described and really did feel for staff who work in these stores.

But by the end of it I felt like saying enough already, I get it. You don't like your job, maybe it's time you found another. Hopefully as a comic somewhere because you do have talent. Or possibly as a writer since I notice you also have several other books out in other genres.

Having written a blog and having read plenty of others, I was prepared for the writing style of this book to be less "book" and more "blog". In fact, I liked the fact that it was set up this way.

I was entertained even as I cringed, from time to time, thinking "Oh lord, I think I've done that." I also kept nodding my head while reading about the push for service plans and such, as I recall the pitches for those on a regular basis.

The one about the two guys and the shredder... I wouldn't have handled it that nicely. I would have unplugged the shredder and taken it with me... or at least cut power to that and any other shredder on the floor available for "test driving." What jerks. Of course, I'd probably have gotten into trouble for it.

There were a few times when the end of a particular story/rant ended and I was frustrated because I wanted more detail on what happened at the end of it, but mostly I read the ending, shook my head and said "Wow." Having worked in food service, including delivering pizza, I have a few stories of my own and can relate to so very much of this book... but sometimes the things people will do still blow your mind.

The author made a statement at the beginning about spelling and other such proofreading things, and how he didn't want to hear about them (I forget his actual wording) because he initially wrote the posts for himself. I was worried when I read that, thinking it might be unreadable if the errors are too many. I hesitated, then took his statement with a grain of salt, and the errors, too.

It actually wasn't as bad as what I'd prepared myself for. There were errors, yes, but no worse than a lot of other books I've read recently.

It came as such a relief to find this. Searching on books on "bad customers" led to so many dead ends with nothing but books on how to provide excellent customer service and just bad customer service, but this was just golden. Reading the experiences with not just the customers, but the management really made it feel like I was not going insane at my job. Such a relief and I share so many of the frustrations. It can be redundant, but that's what some weeks feel like just working in customer service. Really makes me appreciate the good customers and the good customer service received.
