What I’m Thankful For Holiday Event – When Elves Attack

For this holiday book selection, I stepped out of my “genre box” and just grabbed something that looked fun. HOLY COW!!! I was NOT prepared for this, lol. My introduction to Tim Dorsey

It’s ho, ho, ho time in this hilarious and wacky Florida holiday tale, featuring bighearted psychopath Serge Storms and his sidekick, Coleman. Like Santa, Serge knows who’s been naughty and who’s been nice. Few can give with the generosity and creativity of Serge, and as December 24 rolls around, he is filling up the Serge sleigh with an unforgettable bag of presents.

But before that, it’s all a big free-range Christmas office party, where Serge will be spreading his special cheer. And there’s that last-minute go-for-broke spree at the mall (just beware of those attacking elves—they bite). While you’re there, skip the lame photo on Santa’s lap—Serge will give you a lap ride you’ll never forget. As for that addled elf Coleman, there’s nothing like a white Christmas. Let it snow!

So grab a six-pack, spike the eggnog, and hit the dunes on the beach as Serge and Coleman roast some nuts on an open fire and prove that reindeer really do know how to fly!

Unfortunately, this book comes well into the series life of Serge Storms. I’m sure there are many ongoing jokes that I didn’t get, but luckily, that didn’t stop me from enjoying the book. There just aren’t sufficient words to prepare someone this brand of holiday fare. If you’re up for a book that will make your cheeks sore from laughing, and your head spin from all the  WTFery, and your heart warm from Serge’s (very deep down) holiday spirit, this is the book for you! (And you’ll never look at a mall elf without laughing again!!)

I want to thank Tim Dorsey for bringing Serge to the world, and to me. Here are a few things Tim is thankful for:

  • Florida
  • back roads
  • 7-Eleven
  • Gasoline
  • Cameras
  • shoes with velcro

**as a fellow Floridian, I have to say, most of those items are on MY “things I’m thankful for” list, as well. 🙂 **

So… my question for you… are you thankful for something that is locale specific?? Does your town/state/country do something special that you appreciate?? Comment below and you could win a copy of Tim Dorsey’s WHEN ELVES ATTACK. Please remember to leave your first name and email address in your comment so I can reach you if you win. Winner will be chosen on Saturday, Nov 26th. GOOD LUCK!!
