Laughing Place Press is happy to announce an official publication date for their first book, The E-Ticket Life: Stories, Essays, and Lessons Learned from My Decidedly Disney Travels by Kyle Burbank. The book will be available on LaughingPlace.com, Amazon, and iBooks on July 17, 2015.
“Considering how big a part Disneyland plays in this book and in my life, I can’t imagine a better release date than the park’s 60th anniversary,” Burbank said.
The E-Ticket Life shares over stories from Burbank’s life as a Disney fan as well as essays written from his unique point of view. Additionally, best-selling author Aaron Wallace (The Thinking Fan’s Guide to Walt Disney World: Magic Kindgom) provides the foreword and artist Ashley O’ Neill contributes nearly two-dozen beautiful illustrations.
Printed editions of The E-Ticket Life are currently available for preorder on TheETicketLife.com (copies sold sold on Laughing Place and TheETicketLife.com are signed by the author at no additional charge) and digital versions can be preordered on Amazon (Kindle) and iBooks. Amazon will list the printed version after the book’s release on July 17. Laughing Place Press has also announced that Burbank will be selling and doing signings of the book at the 2015 D23 Expo August 14-16.
Here is the official synopsis for the book:
“A Disney vacation is more than just a vacation. As author Kyle Burbank found out, the magic of the Disney Parks can follow you long after you’ve left the gates. From traveling around the world to meeting the woman who would be his bride, The Walt Disney Company has had an undeniable effect on the course of his life.
The E-Ticket Life: Stories, Essays, and Lessons Learned from My Decidedly Disney Travels celebrates this and takes you along for over a decade of adventures than can all be pinpointed back to Disney-made memories.
Throughout your travels, you’ll be treated to tales of villainous run-ins, humorous observations from a Disney local’s point of view, and gorgeous illustrations that bring the stories to life.
Whether you’ve never been to the Disney Parks or you’re an Annual Passholder, The E-Ticket Life has something for you. Fans of “the Mouse,” seasoned travelers, or just about anyone who has ever fallen in love will be able to relate to the stories contained in this collection.
If you want to plan your next visit to the Disney Parks, pick up a guidebook. But, if you want to go on a journey now, join Kyle Burbank on this exciting and entertaining E-Ticket ride.”
