You may be aware that all the technical work on Violinist.com is handled by Robert Niles, who also happens to be my husband.
You may not know, however, that Robert once was a Pirate of the Caribbean -- at Walt Disney World in Orlando, Florida. He actually worked there at a number of attractions for years, and from that experience he caught the theme park bug. At the same time as we started Violinist.com, he also started a website called ThemeParkInsider.com.
I tell you all this because I want you to buy his book, Stories from a Theme Park Insider, an e-book which just came out a few weeks ago. It's a compilation of his best stories from when he was working at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, and he really captures the funny, the unexpected and the poignant nature of one of the world's more unusual jobs.
The price is right, $3.99. If you like it, well…please give it five stars, possibly write a review, and also tell 30 of your closest friends to download it! :) And now that we know how to do e-books, we may just do some violin-related ones. But only if this one sells like crazy.. (hint, hint)
So if it sounds like fun reading for you, Download a sample chapter [PDF] for free, or just buy a copy, here's the info:
Stories from a Theme Park Insider is available for just $3.99 on Amazon.com, Apple iBooks and Barnesandnoble.com.
I bought mine yesterday to read on my Nook. Very charming!
