Happy Book Birthday to The Great Unexpected

I was asked about participating in a book tour for The Great Unexpected earlier this year but my planner said "nope"  but I had to do something since, y'all, we have the same birthday! So here it is!

Happy book birthday to Dan Mooney and The Great Unexpected!

A curmudgeon and his eccentric new roommate join together to plan an epic escape in this charming, poignant tale.
Joel lives in a nursing home, and he’s not one bit happy about it. He hates being told when to eat, when to sleep, when to take his pills. He’s fed up with life and begins to plan a way out when his new roommate, a retired soap opera actor named Frank, moves in and turns the nursing-home community upside down.
Though the two men couldn’t be more opposite, a fast friendship is formed when Frank is the only one who listens to and stands up for Joel. When he tells Frank about his burgeoning plan, they embark together on a mission to find the perfect escape, and along the way will discover that it’s never too late for new beginnings.
Filled with colorful characters, sparkling humor and deep emotion, The Great Unexpected is the story of friendship, finding oneself later in life and experiencing newfound joy in the most unexpected places.

Dan Mooney is a 35-year-old amateur filmmaker and air traffic controller, the author of Me, Myself and Them, and a friend to many cats. He wrote his first piece of fiction for a child-operated local newspaper at age ten and has been writing ever since. He lives in Ireland.

Now, I'm off to have all the birthday goodies from club memberships in Orlando. Cupcakes and coffees and ice creams and discounts and I am thirty years old and I shall enjoy this day!
