You connect each effect's 9v and ground connections to each other then to the power jack/battery connector

I would prefer to isolate each stage by running a separate 100 ohm resistor to each effect from the + 9v supply socket or battery positive terminal and then drop a 220uf electrolytic(or larger if you prefer) from the circuit side of these resistors (2 electros required) to ground. By doing this you will decouple any signal voltage from travelling through the power supply rail between each effect and enhance operational stability by reducing or eliminating any intermodulation artifacts, particulary in the high frequency range. Make sure you connect the negative terminals of each electrolytic to ground.

Add a 100 ohm resistor from EACH effect's +ve supply rail to the + 9v supply socket or battery positive terminal and then add a 220uf polarised aluminium electrolytic capacitor from EACH circuit's +ve supply rail to ground (connect the -ve pins of the capacitors to ground). This is a very old "trick" known as supply rail decoupling and it works surprisingly well, particularly when running effects from a common power supply adaptor. Many good designers already use this method of decoupling in their products - a schematic helps to identify this.
