How to Save Christmas from Villains, Grinches, and Sub-par Parenting

How to Save Christmas from Villains, Grinches, and Subpar Parenting Prior to my second book’s printing, I received a call from my editor.  The editorial team was in love with a new subtitle.  It was a nod to my viral post An Open Letter to My Children: You’re Not that Great.  I appreciate that post, it was the catalyst to an agent and book deals.
