Heidi Eliason’s Book Launch
Saturday, May 4th at 2:00 p.m.
276 Village Square, Orinda
If you are tired of the high cost of living and hectic pace in the San Francisco Bay Area—or any other metropolitan area in the U.S., you are not alone. Heidi Eliason’s book, Confessions of a Middle-Aged Runaway: An RV Travel Adventure describes how she escaped the confines of the hamster wheel at the age of 45 by selling her house, quitting her job, buying a motorhome, and hitting the road with her dog.
Confessions of a Middle-Aged Runaway chronicles the challenges of learning to live in and manage an RV and the joy of freedom experienced by a solo woman traveler. It might help others to make a similar life-changing journey.
The book is available for pre-ordering until the release date of May 4th at Amazon, BarnesandNoble.com, Apple iBooks, and Kobo.com. Every pre-order receives a free bonus gift of companion photos that go along with each chapter of the book–more than 40 photos! Send an email with your order number to HEIDILELIASON(at)GMAIL(dot)COM to receive the bonus gift.
