The Functional Fiction of ‘Happy Place’

Because when you are done with it, you can level your tables and chairs!

Xlibris, the print-on-demand self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of Happy Place. Authored by Alain Leduc, this book will take readers on a unique literary journey and adventure with the characters.

Alfie Owl has always been a bit unusual, but driving himself head on into a transport trailer is a tad extreme even for him. However for Alfie it seemed like a good idea at the time to get a chance to meet the driver John Miller. Unbeknownst to them, whatever secret these two guys are trying to hide starts to unravel when neither of them can (or is willing to) explain why there is an extra arm laying on the road at the horrifically bloody sight of the accident. And it becomes increasingly apparent that it belongs to a perfectly intact Alfie Owl. Things truly digress when the residents of the small town of Welmm start to get a bit ‘bitey’ and Alfie and John have an entirely new situation to deal with, let alone one lousy second arm.

The exciting thing about Happy Place is that you can use it to insulate your home when finished reading it. It can save your life if you need a quick fire, and best of all you can rip it apart and tape the pages together to create kaleidoscope-like table cloth so when you are dining with people you don’t actually like you can read instead of talk.

The Ebook format will warm your heart by filling some of that terabyte you just purchased. This book is available in trade paperback, trade hardback, and Ebook formats. For more information on this book, interested parties may log on to
