From the Foreward ~
As you read Go to ELF!, you will find yourself taking a journey with Tony Celentano and Frankie Doerrer, each of whom was born into a very troubled and dysfunctional family. As teens, both boys struggled to understand and deal with the violence raging within their own homes. Then, through a twist of fate, they met in the middle of a small patch of woods in St. Petersburg, Florida. There they forged a boyhood alliance that made it easier for them to deal with their individual and collective lives, and they have remained best friends throughout their adult lives.
This book is about the struggle we all have in overcoming the beliefs we unquestioningly accepted about ourselves in our early childhood. Even if we had relatively good parenting, these unconscious and often limiting beliefs can hold us back from being who we really are and who we want to become. Ninety-five percent of our current belief system was formed between the time we were born and the age of twelve, and we are still functioning on the unconscious information we internalized about ourselves at that very early age. Those early impressions create the essence of our personal belief system or, as I like to call it, our personal B.S. These impressions have left a deep imprint on us. It never occurs to us to examine, let alone question, these hidden beliefs running our lives, because we have forgotten they are even there.
In Go to ELF!, as Tony approaches his fortieth birthday and faces financial ruin, he has a truly mystical experience during which, in a moment of deep despair; he conjures up the ELF, an apparition that had helped him when life overwhelmed him as a teenager. An acronym for the Eternal Life Force, the ELF represents Tony’s spiritual nature, his inner being, his higher self – the same energy that is his (and our) personal connection with the creator and sustainer of all life. We each have our own ELF, our own internal guidance system, but like Tony, most of us have forgotten how intimately we are connected to our spiritual nature, or how to access this spiritual nature for our own benefit when we need it.
The insight the ELF provides for Tony also allows the reader of Go to ELF! to see how this internal guidance system works. And with that realization comes the most important message of all: Life doesn’t have to be so hard.

“Go to ELF! – Connecting with The Eternal Life Force” was recently reviewed by a judge from The Writer’s Digest. This round of judging included 2,800 entries of independently published books by authors from all over the world. The Writer’s Digest sets a “gold standard” for the quality of Independently published books in multiple categories.
Judge's Commentary: "I really enjoyed this allegory, meshing the Elf with my own beliefs in God and the Holy Spirit. You did a great job of showing the dysfunctional childhoods of Tony and Frankie. I liked how you placed Tony in such dire financial straits to begin the concept of The ELF. That was real. . . I do like the concept and will try to remember this story when things turn negative. I hope it works for me. I already know about life being fun (when things are going well). Good luck with spreading this idea around. Many people need it. - Judge, 22nd Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards.”

“I have been meaning to tell you how much I LOVED Go to Elf! Reading it was one of those energy shifting, life changing experiences for me. In fact, since reading it, I have been writing music with such ease that it almost seems like taking dictation. It has been this amazing experience of feeling like all the songs in the Universe already exist, and all I have to do is "tune in" to the right frequency to hear them and bring them into this plane.”
