Check out the excerpt of the first chapter of It’s a Work Thing.

Life and love each bring along their own set of challenges and stressors, but there is no greater pressure than making it through the holiday season. The parties, gifts, and forced family gatherings are enough to make any man lose his mind.

The contemplation of the past three hundred and sixty-five days can make the most confident person feel inadequate. Didn’t get the promotion you hoped for? Dumped by your significant other before the start of the holiday season? Eleven fifty-nine p.m. on December thirty-first is the perfect time to reflect on it.

Then there’s the search for the perfect date.

Kiss someone at midnight, and your year will be filled with love.
