In the weeks before Christmas, my personal email account is chock full of so-called bargains. I giggle and scroll at some of the products selected for my viewing, like exotic cigars and remote control helicopters. But, some of the offers are solid and just what I want to buy for others.

So, in the spirit of savings and my less-than-slick marketing skills, here’s a deal: all three Stella and Jonas books for $24.95 (instead of $9.95 each).  That would be “Drunk on a Peace and Quiet,” “Hung Over with Grandma,” and the latest, “Pick Your Poison.”

Catch me locally or send an email to with BOOKS in the title. Please allow $5 for shipping.

Thank you. May all your purchases be just what you wanted!
