Synopsis: Supporting one and a half families is not the ideal situation for a man who makes his living as a writer…unless he comes up with a book so certain to be a bestseller that he doesn’t have to worry about money ever again. (Or maybe Mary will find a fella of her own who can start contributing to the support.)
So Tom’s surefire bestseller, The Christmas Book is begun, and Tom’s troubles begin. His editor quits, Ginger doesn’t want to get married, Mary won’t give him a divorce, his new editor announces she’s pregnant (and quits), the woman in an iron lung enters his life, and a third editor begins work on the book. Then things really get complicated.
