Happy Holidays to All of You from All of Me

Bob Hammond holidayThat’s right, happy holidays to you, whatever you celebrate. I don’t mean to frighten you, but I’ve noticed recently that there seems to be a lot of electricity and fire involved in these holiday celebrations. That sounds dangerous. Of course, I’m not worried, as Danger is my middle name, which you may have read in my novel, Bob Hammond: Living Dangerously.

In any case, with all that fire danger around, I wanted to tell you about my gift to you this holiday season. That’s right, little people, I actually did do something with you in mind. Considering the open flames of candelabra thingies, fireplaces, and tangled and frayed electrical cords going to and from your peasant-like decorations, having paper around is a serious and possibly catastrophic hazard. So I’ve re-released all my “dead tree books,” as you people call them, as eBooks! I know, that’s amazingly thoughtful, right?

That’s right, this holiday season, you can give yourself the firesafe gift of Bob Hammond in electronic book for Kindle, Nookie, Kobra or something, and whatever else other contraption you can read eBooks on.

So, happy holidays, folks. And stay safe with an eBook from Bob Hammond. The life you save may be your own.
