UPDATE: A Soldierâ€™s Italian Christmas is now for sale on Amazon.
On this Veterans Day, we honor those who have served in all wars. For that, we say thank you. As we approach the Christmas Holidays, I’ve often wondered what it was like during World War II for the boys so far from home. In A Soldierâ€™s Italian Christmas, the first of the O’Casey Brothers in Arms series, we meet Captain Mack O’Casey, the oldest of four brothers from Brooklyn who join the fight.
It’s December 1943, one of the coldest winters on record, and the Allied advance to Rome is bogged down on a long stretch of road leading from Naples to the Eternal City.
If your Christmas reading is on the spicier side (as in erotic), check out A Naughty Christmas Carol about a modern day Scrooge named Nick Radnor. A New York Wall Street hottie who has it all…except the woman he loves.

I’m trim and gorgeous. Sexy design. Botox-smooth case.
Slimmer than I’ve been in years.
Clear, no-glare screens. And those cute keyboards. Like sassy, high-heeled shoes. Makes you want to let your fingers do the walking.
And no more of those pesky page numbers to get in the way. It’s like weighing yourself after you’ve gone on your mocha latte splurge. Who wants to know?
I do have a pet peeve about those TOCs. Half the time the Table of Contents key doesn’t work, sending ahead in the story and you know who’s sleeping with whom before you’ve guessed. it.
And don’t talk to me about Bookmarks.
They’re like old boyfriends who won’t go away. Once you’ve marked them, you’re stuck with them.
Ah, but I can’t stop drooling over the hunky guys on the Cover. Muscle-bound heroes to die for.

Sensual, mysterious, naughty…
Will Chloe lose her virginity before morning comes?
Winter…the days are getting shorter and have you noticed how we communicate is also getting shorter?
We live in a world of texting (“hw r u?”) and Twitter madness that forces us to express ourselves in 140 characters or less. (God help Tolstoy…)
Not to mention acronyms — we plop onto the couch, turn on the DVR or watch a DVD while drinking our OJ, then check out this week’s episode of NCIS.
Now a UK newsletter has come up with “hundred word fiction.”
Indie Book Bargains UK-based Daily Kindle Book Deals
Everyday they publish Kindle deals and a short story with no more than a hundred words.
I thought it would be fun to take up the challenge so I put together a story in less than 100 words. Since it’s Christmas, I wrote a holiday story for the UK newsletter: “Santas, Soldiers, and Orphans, oh, my!”
Here’s how it appears on their website:

What if Scrooge was a sexy hunk? (You’ll meet him in the video!)
I couldn’t resist writing about this modern day Scrooge in my holiday novella, A Naughty Christmas Carol.
Three sexy female ghosts try to save the soul of a Wall Street trader on this naughty Christmas Eve.
Nick Radnor is a Wall Street trader with no heart.
Money is his mistress.
That doesnâ€™t stop him from having sex in his office on Christmas Eve with his secretary, Jinger Hunt.
Or keeping his beautiful fiancÃ©e, Monique Ashford, dangling on a string. Heâ€™s relentless in his pursuit of wealth and power. Wall Street is in his blood, along with the thrill of risking it all, but he canâ€™t forget the painful memories of Christmas when he was a kid.
Nick works hard, but plays harder in a gentlemen’s club called Mamieâ€™s. After a wild Christmas Eve at Mamieâ€™s, Nick is in a drunken stupor when he hears the eerie sound of rattling chains proclaiming the arrival of the tormented ghost of Charlie Harris, his dead partner.
The last thing Nick needs is Charlieâ€™s ghost telling him he is doomed to walk the earth for eternity, chained by his sins.
Whatâ€™s even more disturbing to Nick is the arrival of three sexy female ghosts, who warn him that if he doesnâ€™t change his ways he will lose it all, including Monique, the woman he loves.
On this naughty Christmas Eve, Nick will learn the terrifying full scope of where his life is headed because of his corporate greed. In a peek into the future that will shatter his every expectation, Nick realizes the choices he makes now will have deadly consequences for everyone he loves.
Happy Holidays, everyone!
