Hurry! Time is running out! Get your final entries for my #DadIsWellHung Contest ready. All entries must be posted by 11:59pm EST this Thursday, December 24, 2015.

I continue to be wowed by your creativity.

Steve Lepre is one of the most gifted people I know. Actor. Director. Mosaic artist. Designer. Chef. And a dear. Such a dear. This December, he started a Facebook holiday card series. I watched them go up day after day. Every time, I whispered, “Pick me next! Pick me! Pick me!”

Rather than describe them, I’ll show you his genius.

To be ‘carded’ by Steve, one must be his Facebook friend. Because I’m not sure how he feels about accepting friend requests from strangers, I didn’t post a link today. But search for him. Tell him I sent you. I’ll let him decide.

I have piles of #DadIsWellHung entries to showcase.
Please forgive me if I do two or three posts a day this week.
KEEP THEM COMING!
I’d love to do nothing but guffaw at your creativity

nwmf audiobook

For almost a year, I teased an audiobook. I promised. I recorded, and I cursed. I lost track of how many times I read Not Without My Father aloud in various claustrophobic spaces. Tents in MTM’s office conference room. A sweltering pod in our guest shower.

Kate Shrewsday’s studio saved my sanity. And because Kate applied her sound talents to my project, I can announce

Not Without My Father
Audiobook
Available NOW!

Amazon/Audible version available HERE.

iTunes version available HERE.

The audio version is narrated by yours truly with extras not found anywhere else. We included an author interview, where I answer reader questions. The lovely Kate Shrewsday conducts the interview. We also included a six-plus minute snippet of Dad’s voice, meaning you can compare my attempt throughout the book to the real thing.

Because YES, I mimic
Dad’s voice in my narration.

And I sing. And I even take a stab at Mom’s tones of fire-and-ice.

Listen to a snippet HERE:

I worked hard to make this audiobook an experience. If you’ve read Not Without My Father, I hope it’ll bring added dimension to the story. If you’ve been awaiting the audio version, I’m sorry it’s taken so freaking long.

Dad doesn’t know what to say. UK reader Tom Merriman upped the #DadIsWellHung stakes several notches by making Dad the basis of his electronic holiday card. See the entire post HERE.

Idaho’s Lori O’Leary took #DadIsWellHung literally.

Lori is my dearest friend I’ve never met. I love her. Connect with Lori on Twitter HERE.

Brick House Chick is at it again. Or Dad couldn’t stay away from Amherst, Massachusetts. Or something.

Seriously, Dad? THE SHOWER? What is it with you and bathrooms? Check out the Brick House HERE.

And speaking of bathrooms………

I mean, I know I wrote about bodily functions A LOT in Not Without My Father. But DANG, Dad. (And Nancy Teixeira is KILLING this contest. Follow her at her web home HERE.)

But my last featured entry has me cringing even more. Remember Dad and his visit to a Las Vegas whorehouse yesterday? Well……….

Ted Strutz saw Nancy’s Vegas whorehouse entry, and he saw her bet and raised her a few chips……

holiday

Because we all know whose digits are REALLY on that matchbook, Ted. 😉 FREAKING HILARIOUS!!

I’ve got lots more entries to feature, but please keep them coming! I’m sharing them on social media, posting them to my Facebook Author Page, tagging my poor mother on Facebook and horrifying her to death, and generally laughing my pattotie off.
