Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) December 03, 2013

Author teams up with Granatus Press to release a book about friendlessness in time for the holidays. For many, the holidays are a grim reminder of social disconnection, but in her new book, Social Elephant: New Rules for Making Friends in Our Changing Social Economy, Kia Wakefield explores the subject of friendship and how to become more socially connected.

“The holiday season is a time of year when people really hunger for connection. Unfortunately, it can be difficult to establish those social connections and ward off the holiday blues. Although loneliness can overtake even the most social person during the holidays, symptoms of loneliness are more intense for people who don't have the comfort of family or friends,” says Wakefield.

The new book offers philosophies and ideas for people who want to make new friends and acquaintances. After moving more than five times in the last five years, the author understands how difficult establishing social connections can be. She believes that the holiday season is a great time of year to make new friends and acquaintances.

“The holidays are a time when sentiment and nostalgia can soften even the hard-hearted. This makes it a valuable time for people who are friendless to make the social connections they desire,” says Wakefield.

Kia Wakefield wrote Social Elephant: New Rules for Making Friends in our Changing Social Economy to demystify the art of making friends for herself and others. Social Elephant is published by Granatus Press.
