Blog Tour Guest Coming Soon

On May 20, Paul Kilduff will stop by our blog as part of his virtual tour. Here's a bit of information about him and his book. It sounds like it will be a very humorous read!

“Paul Kilduff is excited to bring his first nonfiction work, entitled Ruinair, on a virtual book tour. Paul’s book is a witty travelogue which sees him get his own back on the airline that overcharged him and significantly delayed him on a flight from Malaga to Dublin:

Stung by a ten hour delay and a E300 fare to Spain on his native “low-fares” airline, Dubliner Paul Kilduff plots revenge – to fly to every country in Europe for the same total outlay, suffering every low-fares airline indignity. Armed with no more than 10kg of carry-on baggage, he endures 6.00am departures, Six Nations-style boarding scrums, lengthy bus excursions, terminal anxiety and cabin crew who deliver famed customer service.

This book will have you laughing out loud at Kilduff’s sharp wit and the hilarious accounts of his misadventures. Anyone who has ever flown with a low-budget airline and has lived to tell the tale will identify with Paul’s experiences.

Ruinair has enjoyed the position of bestselling nonfiction title in Ireland during its first seven weeks of publication and has received wide critical acclaim.

Yvonne, I host authors on Riehlife as long as 1)I'm given ample notice; 2)It fits in my calendar and theme; 3)I receive a review copy well beforehand.

Looked over the Nashville skyline last night...see you for lunch Tuesday.
