I wanted to let you know that I've just published a new book -- a guidebook to the Orlando-area theme parks.

Theme Park Insider: Orlando 2014Theme Park Insider: Orlando 2014 includes more than 200 pages of Theme Park Insider's reader ratings, tips, and advice for visiting Walt Disney World, Universal Orlando, and SeaWorld. We've included a ton of fun trivia and stories in the book, along with tested, crowdsourced strategies for getting the most value from an Orlando-area visit. Even long-time visitors should find plenty in the book to help them learn more about the parks and how they work.

I hope that you'll consider "Theme Park Insider: Orlando 2014" as holiday gift for your favorite theme park fan, or maybe just as a gift to yourself. And, as always, your good reviews of the book on Amazon are welcomed and highly valued, as is spreading the word to family and friends. "Theme Park Insider: Orlando 2014" is available for Kindle (and Kindle apps) ($5.99, and £3.99 for UK readers) and in paperback ($9.95).

Stories from a Theme Park InsiderIf you're looking for another great Christmas gift, for yourself or another theme park fans, please consider our original book, Stories from a Theme Park Insider, a warm and funny look at what it's like to work at Walt Disney World. It's the highest-rated "cast member memoir" on Amazon and the Apple iBookstore — discover for yourself why so many readers love our insider stories by ordering a copy. ($2.99 for Kindle and $6.99 in paperback, from Amazon.)

How to Make Money Publishing Community News OnlineFor my friends in the journalism business, I'd also like to mention my guidebook on starting and running a profitable community news website, How to Make Money Publishing Community News Online. The book examples and exercises to help would-be publishers develop the skills and experience to lead their communities, including how to build an action team, how to register and set up both a website and its underlying business structure, and even how to sell ads. (Yes, selling. You can't run a successful publishing business without income.) Any successful website needs to be a superior vehicle for communication, so the book also includes sections on how to improve one's reporting, writing, and production skills.

Finally, we've signed up all our books for Amazon's "Kindle MatchBook" program where, if you buy the paperback from Amazon, you can buy the Kindle eBook version of the same title for just 99 cents. Thank you for supporting our publications, and we wish you a very happy holidays!
