After an accident in Connecticut kills their toddler, Jane and Joe Tash, as part of therapy, write the book You Can Save Us All. Santa Fe’s Surely You Jest Press contracts to publish it. The Tashes believe their book will convince readers to protest in a major way against nuclear armament and environmental degradation. But the reality of getting a book published in hardcover, softcover, and eBook formats—amid escalating personality clashes—threatens to halt their efforts, as well as bankrupt the press.
Couples uncouple, a best-selling author traumatizes Jane by flashing, and a son shuns his children, wife, and mother. Then out of the blue, a guardian angel appears.
Yale University graduate Michael Scofield worked for Sunset Magazine until his wife and he launched a firm to write marketing documents for Silicon Valley companies.

Sunstone Press has published two books of his poetry, Whirling Backward into the World and Circus Americana and Other Poems, as well as his Santa Fe trilogy, Acting Badly, Making Crazy, and Smut Busters, followed by Dedicated Lives, Talks with Those Helping Others.
