Please Hold Thumbs: Holiday Edition

I'm feeling particularly festive today. Perhaps it's the twelfth Dirty Egg Nog Martini I slammed down since breakfast. What time is it? Is that 1:00 or 11:00? Looks like 111:00, but that can't be right.

Anyway, it's Christmastime in the city and even though I love in the bleedin' 'burbs, I decided to give you my loyal readers...yes, both of you...a lil' pressie this year from me to thee.

For a limited time, say from now until the end of the year, my sweet story about modern day travel entitled
PLEASE HOLD HOLD THUMBS: A NOT SO ROUND TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA is available for download absolutely FREE on Goodreads. You have to be a member to access it, but that's free as well. (See the links below)

Here's the standard promo:


Attending their daughter's wedding in South Africa promised to be the vacation of a lifetime. But first, they had to face the treacherous gauntlet known as modern day travel. Join this hapless, sometimes helpless couple as they brave their way through a never-ending obstacle course filled with such hazards as flight delays, the purgatory of layovers and an incompetent, uncaring air carrier that treats its passengers worse than their luggage. Waiting for them on the other side of the world are an honest-to-goodness safari with amorous lions and elephants with anger issues, a life-affirming visit to a South African school and an anxious bride and groom, standing patiently at the airport with a sign that reads: "WHAT TOOK YOU SO LONG?" 

PLEASE HOLD THUMBS: A NOT-SO-ROUND TRIP TO SOUTH AFRICA, a true tale of turbulence and triumph 

I love this book. It's a sweet family saga about a time in my life when I was fortunate enough to not only take an incredible journey to the other side of the world, but to also live in the now for the first time in my life and not on the outside looking in. What I discovered about myself and the world around transformed me in ways that will resonate with me forever. 

So since this tome hasn't gotten the exposure I believe it deserves, I wanted to share it with all of you. It's the Spirit of Giving. 

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and see you on the other side.
