The Pay Day

by Ron Elgin

"The Pay Day" will have you roaring laughing out loud. If you're looking for wit like Vonnegut's, quirkiness like a Woody Allen movie, and office shenanigans that would Michael Scott blush, then this is the book for you.
"The Pay Day" is the zany sequel to Ron Elgin's best-seller "Hucksterville" featuring Megan Santucci, the once beautiful, brilliant advertising whiz kid who became addicted to booze and drugs and ended up homeless under a bridge. After kicking her addictions, she became the star creative director of Tight Fit Athletics. After her boss is eaten in his Seattle office by a crocodile, his sister Lotta shows up from an animal farm in Africa to take charge. Megan hates Lotta as much as she hated Max, but she leads her motley team to unparalleled success regardless. Lotta was a multibillionaire used to getting her way, and that doesn't sit well with Megan. Many familiar characters reappear, including Carmen, a physiologist; Meat, a former cage fighter; The Herman, genius creative team with the same name and terrible personal hygiene; and Possibly Peter who still suffers from a bad case of Tourette's. Scene after scene of this novel is filled with witty dialogue and absurd situations. The Herman fled for their lives from the Tight Fit campus after pooping in Lotta's camp/site office and went to London, England to participate in the International Crepitation Contest. For you less-sophisticated readers, that's a farting contest. Wait until you read the results!
About the author
Ron Elgin's fourth book, "The Pay Day," offers a humorous glimpse into his forty-year career in the advertising industry. Elgin shares his journey of success, failures, and experiences from being expelled in high school to co-founding a successful agency with major clients like Microsoft and McDonald's. His philosophy of avoiding working with "assholes," hiring talented individuals, and believing in hard work led to his expansive, entrepreneurial success. Ron and his extremely beautiful, bright, and patient wife of fifty-five years Bonni lived in Seattle most of their lives. As their bones got older, they moved to Newport Beach to be closer to the world's most wonderful daughter, Alison; their equally wonderful son-in-law, Brett; and their absolutely perfect grandchildren, Logan, Hutton, and Ripley.
