1 free copy of Stashes by PJ Colando.  I absolutely loved this
crazy book.  One thing leads to another trying to 
help family and to get family to simply help themselves a 
little so you can have a much needed vacation.  So funny
told by the different ladies trying to hold it together and
make the most out of a quickly snowballing situation.
LOVED IT     Fun & just too possible.

Jackie and Steve Breeden, Baby Boomer parents, have built a solid, idyllic life on a small Midwestern farm. Aching body parts remind them that they are not getting any younger, and neither are their dreams. They long to get their lives on the road like their hero, the late Charles Kuralt.. Opportunity arrives when their married son loses his job - and home to foreclosure. They become reverse empty nesters, and buy a Winnebago to cut loose and explore America.

Son Brandon, and his ambitiously conniving wife Amy, embody their generation’s prevailing sense of entitlement. Before the older couple departs, Amy embellishes the micro-dairy business by growing and selling marijuana edibles, dragging Jackie into the scheme. As the local bank vice president, Amy secretly increases the amount of the Home Equity Line of Credit that financed the Winnebago. Oops - adventures and adversities ensue.

Stashes reaches behind the sensational headlines about job downsizing, recession, foreclosure, medical marijuana, and generational conflicts of ideals, expectations, and values to show how these issues can actually play out in comical real time. Our times.

Goodreads: Pat Jackson-Colando

BIO: For twenty-five years, Pat Jackson-Colando had a thriving practice in speech-language pathology. Publicly she introduced herself with the slogan: “If you can say my name, you don’t need to see me”, knowing that her name and job title were twists of the lip and tongue.

     Last summer, in a real life plot twist, she became a published author, PJ Colando, with her debut novel, STASHES. It is Americana humor, satiric, filmic fiction; a farce, but real life. The logline is “Baby Boomer parents gallivant around the country in a Winnebago, leaving the family farm in the hands of their immature son and conniving wife. What could go wrong?”

    PJ’s short stories and personal essays have been published in ‘The Adelphean’, ‘ASHA Leader’, ‘Erma Bombeck Humor Writers’, ‘IUPUI Letters’, ‘Not Born Yesterday’, ‘The Lutheran Message’, and ‘Orange Coast’ magazines, as well as The Orange County Register and The Indianapolis Star. Her written work has also been anthologized in Open to Interpretation, The Biscuit, She Writes, and Wisdom Has a Voice: Every Daughter’s Memories of Mother.
    A podcast about STASHES and the expanding trend for Americans to road trip and/or live full-time in RVs is available on The Boomer’ Ultimate Guide. PJ blogs regularly on her author site:
    She is having a blast!
