More drink. Less Drunk.
You deserve a great cocktail—and you don’t have to over-indulge to get it! Shims—serious, low-alcohol cocktails—are where everyone can come together, whether it’s for the one drink of the evening or when this is but the first of many.
This book is your invitation to a world of delicious, sophisticated drinks which provide all their pleasures without walloping you over the head with booze. Celebrate two centuries of the cocktail with recipes for every taste, from the sunny cheerfulness of a Ben’s Good Humor to slow sippers like the Bitter Giuseppe. Cheers!
Let go of everything that doesn’t make your life awesome!
With three key principles and numerous practical tips, Discardia—a new holiday—helps you solve specific issues, carve away the nonsense of physical objects, habits, or emotional baggage, and uncover what brings you joy.

Join others around the world who use Discardia's inspirational—but not sappy—approach, and put your energy where it counts: toward living the less stressful life of your dreams!

The mad wonders of the real world continue to inspire my fiction writing.
