"I had stopped believing in Santa Clause long before his powder blue Buick Skylark ripped through a busy intersection in Allentown, Pennsylvania, clipped the back of a pickup truck, bolted over the curb, and slammed into the corner of an abandoned gas station..."
My Christmas card to all the terrific readers (and writers) who made this a great year for me: a 15-minute break from holiday hurry. This week, please enjoy a free download of The Late Great Santa Claus, a little cookie of a short story from the archives of Earth to Joni, my syndicated column of yore. (And just in case it leaves you wanting to read more from Earth to Joni series, I included the bonus sneak peeks from Love & Other Natural Disasters (Earth to Joni) and First You Write: The Worst Way to Become an Almost Famous Author and the Best Advice I Got While Doing It.
Peace, joy and a happy, happy New Year to all! Cue handbells!

We welcome payola in the form of pies, cakes, neatly folded laundry and free books!
In accordance with FTC regulations, we're required to inform readers that we receive books from publishers, authors, and PR folk for review. We'd like to receive money via an offshore bank account, but that hasn't happened yet. When my dad was in radio back in the '50s, a local baker used to sneak over in the dead of night and fill the back seat of his car with bread and pastries. We would NOT object to this. Please review our review policy here. And let us know if we should leave the car outside the garage tonight.
Peace, love, and statutory compliance ~
