Starting today, we're publishing our first eBook, Stories from a Theme Park Insider. I have selected the best stories from our "Theme Park Cast Member Stories" series and rewritten them, adding extra details and few new stories, too. The result is a fun, light, warm read that will satisfy any theme park fan.
What time is the 3:00 parade? Why does a child need to be 40 inches tall to ride Thunder Mountain? What happens when the president of France gets lost inside Pirates of the Caribbean? Stories from a Theme Park Insider answers those questions and more while taking you inside the Magic Kingdom's tunnels and backstage to share the funny stories and embarrassments that can happen when your job is someone else's vacation.
And because Theme Park Insider isn't just me, you'll find your fellow readers' stories in the book, as well. I've selected the best and funniest comments submitted in the "Theme Park Cast Member Stories" and included edited versions of those in the book, too. The result really is the best of the best of ThemeParkInsider.com, with new material and some fun new illustrations.
The very best park? It's cheap - just $3.99. And it is available now for Kindle from Amazon.com and for Nook from barnesandnoble.com. (I've uploaded the book to Apple's iBookstore and it should appear there soon.)
Don't have an eReader? No problem. If you have a smartphone or tablet, you can download free Kindle and Nook applications for iPhone, iPad and Android devices. With those apps, you can read "Stories from a Theme Park Insider" and any other eBook.
I hope you'll take a look at the book and support the site by purchasing a copy. If you'd like to take a look, both Amazon and Barnes and Noble allow you to sample before you buy.
I also hope that you'll help us spread the word about Stories from a Theme Park Insider. If you enjoy the book, please submit a review via Amazon.com and barnesandnoble.com, and click that you found other positive reviews of the book helpful, too.
And please tell your friends and other theme park fans about the book, too, via Facebook, email or other online forums. If this book is a success, I'm planning to follow up with additional stories, books and mobile apps for theme parks.
Finally, thank you to everyone who reads Theme Park Insider for helping make this book possible, especially those who don't just lurk on the site, but contribute to it with your informed, insightful and often very funny posts. You are the real Theme Park Insiders, and I hope that you'll enjoy this book. Please give it a look!
