The Year Santa Stubbed His Toe
By William M. Hayes
After sustaining a serious injury, Santa needs the help of four elves, four reindeer, and one magical jet to complete his Christmas Eve deliveries or he loses the gift of being Santa.
The Man in Red really exists.
If you are one of the people in the world that say Santa is just a myth, you are simply and completely wrong. Many tales have been told about the Man in Red. Some true—some as true as two-headed unicorns with wings living in the city of Atlantis … this tale is true.
A year not so long ago, Santa was ready to take his yearly pilgrimage on the night before Christmas when disaster struck—he stubbed his toe, twice. The toe ballooned to nearly triple its normal size. He could not make his yearly run by himself; he needed help. So on that fateful night, he enlisted four of his best elves, along with his reindeer, to help him make his deliveries around the world: Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa, South America, and North America.
Although the reindeer made this trip with Santa every year, his elves had not been away from the Pole in many years, if ever; they had no idea what they would encounter on this journey. However, the deer and the elves knew what was at stake. It was well known at the Pole that Santa needed to make all deliveries to the world on Christmas Eve or he would lose the gift of being Santa—the rules were very clear.
So … with a magically altered 24 hours, four elves and four bucks set out on a journey fraught with mishaps, misplaced presents, and some misbehavior in an attempt to save the Man in Red.

Meet Author- Connor Cassidy
I am a 26-year-old IT Support Engineer that currently works for a Computer Company named Microfocus. I have worked here for almost 3 years now, along with my big brother, based out of Belfast, Northern Ireland. I graduated from Queen's University, Belfast with a degree in 'Computing and IT'. I try to find time to write in my very limited spare time while enjoying the wet and windy city of Belfast. My time is limited due to my interest in football, darts and boxing.
From an early age, I always wanted to create stories that children would fall in love with. I hope that my books will be able to achieve this through the fun stories that my mind creates. For quite some time I wanted to give writing a go. I wanted to see if I could put together my own novels. This led to me writing my first book, "The Lazy Leprechaun".
