I’m incredibly excited to be doing a giveaway featuring my good friend and colleague’s new scratch n’ sniff children’s book, “New York PHEW York!” Amber C. Jones must have had one of those “How has no one done this yet!?” moments when she started her Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of her book, because it has quickly become obvious that the idea is brilliant.
The book takes you on a journey through the boroughs of NYC through the eyes of a young visiter in town with his family. They befriend a hotel concierge who tells them all the sights (and smells) they need to experience to get the real New York City experience…good and bad. From pizza to the sewer, and bagels to asphalt, this book is truly an adventure for the senses!
My name is Spencer Howard, and I’m an Concierge/Host/Drunk who has spent the majority of the past 9 years on the road, hopping from hotel to hotel for months at a time. Through trial and mostly error, I’ve become what the airport security line calls an “Expert Traveler.” (It makes my Mother proud)
But for those of us who go beyond occasional puddle jumper and enter the world of Hotel Homebody, it takes more than a complimentary mint and a flat screen TV to warm the cockles of our hearts.
I hope you have insurance, because I'm gonna be throwing some knowledge bombs at your face.
