Last year, Father’s Day was not our best holiday ever, involving, as it did, a dead bird, a bicycle, and a very tall ladder. Up the Ladder tells the story. And this week only, it is ENTIRELY FREE to download.
(Don’t you love how I sound like an infomercial? CALL NOW! OPERATORS ARE STANDING BY! Except with clicking instead of calling, and there are no operators. Which makes it… not so much like… an infomercial…)
The official product description looks like this:
Up the Ladder.
A short, true story (20 pages).
When they wake up on Father’s Day to discover that a large bird has made its final resting place upon their roof, blogger Melissa Camara Wilkins and her husband are at a loss.
Between her visceral reaction to roadkill and his concern over heights, they’re never going to get that thing down—which might be fine, if it weren’t situated directly over a skylight. As it is, they can’t live under the shadow of the bird forever, and before long, their five small children are going to want to get involved. Or at least to climb the ladder. There is not even a Father’s Day card for that.
What I am telling you, basically, is that in comparison, your upcoming Father’s Day is going to be awesome. And wouldn’t you like that added confidence, going into the weekend? I know I would, if I were you. Thus: free story. Enjoy!
(I hope you will enjoy! And laugh. I also hope you laugh. At us, mostly. We will understand.)
And, just a reminder: in case you don’t have enough to read (who ever has enough to read?) my other short e-books are also free this week! Five Novembers, Outnumbered, and It Won’t Be Yoga. LOTS OF FREE STUFF, right here, right now. FOR YOU.
