What if Murphy’s Law took over the holidays?
James Kelly is a toy store owner, longing for the days when imagination didn’t come in the form of a computer chip in the latest incarnations of video game consoles. His store is suffering a pre-Christmas disaster, in part because the shoppers have all headed out to the malls near the edge of town, and partially because it is almost Christmas and there hasn’t been a hint of snow. When snow starts falling outside his store, James daydreams his way back to a much earlier holiday season, when the snow was late in arriving.
When snow came on that late December day in the early 1960′s, it brought with it a series of calamities and disasters to the Kelly household. If something could go wrong, it would, and if several things could go wrong, they all would in a cascade of comedic misadventures. No one was immune, especially James and his father Charles.
The Plight Before Christmas is written with the same sense of wit and whimsy that Kirkland brought to his earlier award-winning and bestselling books, and in his syndicated humor column that ran in American and Canadian newspapers from 1994 to 2007. This story is written for adults, but is also suitable for older YA readers.
W. Bruce Cameron, the author of Eight Simple Rules For Dating My Teenage Daughter, A Dog’s Purpose, Emory’s Gift and more says, “A wonderful, nostalgic look at a simpler time and place, The Plight Before Christmas will appeal to fans of A Christmas Story. You don’t just read about this family–you live with them as they fumble and stumble to a hilarious holiday.”
Syndicated humor columnist, blogger (Lost In Suburbia), and author (Rebel Without A Minivan) Tracy Beckerman says, “The Plight Before Christmas’ is misnamed. It should be called ‘The Gift Before Christmas’ because this magical story is the best gift you can give or receive for the holidays!”

With its acid edge and wicked humor, Jeff Davis’s rapid fire depiction of bureaucracy gone wild digs underneath the fingernails of the typical blue collar worker, satirizing both modern-day relationships and business life. Specifically, if we can’t stand our jobs and families, live for the day to escape!
Luckless in love and trapped in a dead-end job, Jack Snaggler thinks his fortune is about to change when he meets a drop-dead gorgeous brunette named Paradise at a local bar. But when a shady fast food chef goes missing and coworkers start disappearing, Jack finds himself being framed for murder. If he wants to stay alive long enough to see Paradise again, he’ll first need to escape a conspiracy, that at each turn, involves almost everyone he knows.
Living under the umbrella of a politically incorrect and bureaucratic world are Ed Shoemaker, a disgruntled office worker conspiring to off his wife and flee to Fiji; Eileen Klump, a cleaning lady in the throes of menopause who suffers from periodic mental breakdowns between intermittent stays at the local mental facility; along with Lance Sheppard, a would-be entrepreneur who makes his living the good old fashioned way: disability fraud.
Regardless of the premise, the book continually punctures the fabric of what’s simply funny with a pervasive shadow of underlying truth.
Wedged neck-deep in the chaos, Jack Snaggler fights to stay afloat in a murky pool of corrupt businessmen, trigger-happy feds, sleazy seaside hotel rooms, and incompetent crooks, all the while stomping for the pursuit of true love and happiness.
Escapist entertainment and a classic roasting of Middle America, this book is for anyone who has one of those days where the kids just scribbled crayon all over the wall, traffic is bumper to bumper, the boss has you under a microscope, everything is going wrong, and that little voice in the back of your head is screaming, “ENOUGH!” Take the first exit ramp off the interstate to the nearest airport and disappear to some deserted island in the South Pacific where they’ll never find you.

Deep in the wild of Canada’s Boreal Forest, in a place chosen for its isolation, a botanist experiences a series of break-ins that threaten his life’s work. The perpetrator is caught in the act and gunned down. When the smoke clears the botanist and committed naturalist realizes he has bagged a live Bigfoot, now barely clinging to life. Stricken with grief, he summons all
his resources to right this wrong. What happens next is a bloody clash of cultures with a creature filled with intelligence. An outsider chosen by the beast himself serves as biographer for a story of love and fear, hope and tragedy, humor and horror and, in the end, a true tale of friendship and loyalty. Bigfoot Down is as close as you will ever get to a Sasquatch without smelling his breath. 352 traditional pages for your enjoyment.
This is one of the most unique books I’ve read. From the beginning, we are sucked into the story told from the point of view of a young writer struggling to get by, when he is sucked into a thrilling story involving eccentric millionaires, bigfoot, UFOs, and an ultimate fight for survival. It’s a startlingly unique story full of suspense, action, threaded with dark humor. Claude Michael will win you over as a character, then in one fowl swoop, remind you that bigfoot is something to be feared. A great read, I highly recommend it.
I am into Bigfoot right now, but this book made me a real fan of the author. Not since early Tom Robbins have I enjoyed such joyous craziness.
I loved BigFoot Down! It’s very different from the books I normally read and wasn’t sure what to expect. The book is very well written…the author does a great job of drawing you into this story from the very first sentence. I couldn’t put it down. It’s interesting, humorous, captivating, and has you at the edge of your seat. Very good read, I highly recommend it!!! Thumbs up Bruce Hood!
