Ask any kid; they’ll tell you…

Never too early 4 XmasXmas audio cover liteOkay, so it’s not even Thanksgiving yet. And yes, I know everyone complains that businesses push to get the Christmas shopping season started earlier every year, and that is undeniably true. BUT–sometimes getting the jump on the holidays is a GOOD idea!

Imagine you have a carload of folks riding with you to visit relatives. You can listen to the radio playing the same old tunes over and over, or you could pop in a brand new CD and listen to that for an hour or so. And how much did you shell out for that CD? Ten bucks, easy, unless you scooped it outta the Bargain Bin at Dirty Dan’s Discount Dump and Body Wax Emporium. (Heh, like you thought we didn’t know where you shop!)

OR, you could try something completely new and different for a whole lot less money. Get it early and you can enjoy it long before the holidays even begin, and long after they’re over, too. Want a sample? Check this out:

Paul Licamelli smallPaul Licameli has done an amazing job with this production. Not only does he handle a wide range of character voices, he does so in such a way that every last one of them comes absolutely alive. He had me wondering what would happen next, and I wrote the stories! That’s what a consummate professional does, and it’s a testament to his skills behind the mike and everywhere else in the studio. You’ll enjoy his performance for years to come, I promise. And, just to save you a little time, you can click right here to snag a copy.

However, I know there are lots of people who’d rather just curl up around a good book, or maybe a Kindle, and let their imaginations take them on fanciful journeys. If you’re in that camp, I’ve got just the thing for you, and it’s been endorsed by The Man Himself. In fact, I managed to get a photo of him with the print version of these very same tales.

It’s not often that I have the opportunity to show my appreciation to everyone who follows this blog, but I’ve found a way. If you’ll trundle over to Amazon and look up Christmas Beyond the Box, or just click HERE, you can get a copy of the ebook version absolutely FREE!

Naturally, there’s a catch. The free version will only be available for five days beginning today, Sunday, Nov. 24, 2019. The last day to grab a freebie will be Thanksgiving Day. So, forget Black Friday, or Plaid Saturday, or whatever else Madison Avenue has come up with this year.

Final thought: if you’re looking for traditional holiday tales along the lines of Frosty Knits Mittens for Kittens, then DON’T DOWNLOAD THE BOOK! You’ll only be disappointed, because these stories are fresh and new, creative and different. But mostly, they’re just great fun. I promise. And hey, they’ve been endorsed by The Man Himself!
