Happy Wednesday, fellow reading addicts!
Well, if you live in the middle of the country down to even Texas or some of the other southern states, you know a bitterly cold burst of air is coming our way tonight through the next few days. Where I’m at, we’re expecting blizzard conditions starting late tonight through Friday. We’re only supposed to have 3 to 6 inches of snow, but I’m hoping for far less than that. I don’t like snow or extreme cold, much less both together.
That said, I think Thursday will be a perfect day for baking some holiday goodies to help keep the house warmer.
All of my Christmas shopping is done and I Should have packages here to wrap later this week. Cards are hopefully going out in the morning before the storm gets here and I plan to stay inside and nice and warm the next few days!
Only a few days remain before Christmas. Do you have everything you need done taken care of? Are you going anywhere for the holidays or staying home and people coming to you? Or maybe you’re celebrating by yourself. No matter how you celebrate the holidays, we hope it’s a good one.
Expect to hear from us twice next week. Once on Tuesday with our 5 days of Christmas and again on Wednesday! We hope you enjoy the free books next week!
Enjoy and happy reading!

Capernica is invaded!
Far from the war zone, the Wolvics have launched a surprise attack while the Confederation Army and Navy are engaged in other fronts, and it is up to those on the planet to hold off the invaders until the Confederation forces can respond.
This trilogy contains three such stories of people responding to the call.
Book 1: Conscientious Objector
A young conscientious objector is conscripted into the provisional planetary militia. But how can he carry a rifle and still uphold his convictions?
As a religious refugee, Harris Taymon knows he owes a deep sense of loyalty to Capernica, but can he bear arms against the enemy with intent to kill?
And if he doesn’t, can he survive his own side where desertion and cowardice are punished by execution?
Book 2: POG
Brand new boot Second Lieutenant Cel Wysoki is home on leave while awaiting logistics officer school when Capernica is invaded. She has no unit yet and not a clue as to how the Army functions.
More than that. She is a POG, a “Person Other than Grunt,” a “desk-jockey-in-training.”
Link up with the local garrison 100 klicks away? Surrender and wait out the war? Hide out in the mountains and hope for the best?
The Army doesn’t care that she has no training. They have one code: soldiers always prosecute the war to the best of their abilities.
Does she even have the capability to attempt that?
Book 3: Veteran
Old soldiers are supposed to sit in the bar, drink with their buddies, and tell war stories.
But when invaders invade, veterans do what they’ve got to do.
Master Sergeant Lester Arceneaux (Retired), a disabled vet, is long into his golden years, too old even to be conscripted into the planetary militia.
But when the enemy rolls over the local forces, he must run to the sound of gunfire if his wife and neighbors can have even a small chance to survive.
His heart and mind are willing, but are his old bones up to the task?
BONUS CONTENT: this trilogy contains previously-unpublished bonus content that wraps up the events of the three included novellas.

When the Wolvic attack the planet, most citizens are hastily conscripted to fight the invaders. But not even then is Mario given a weapon and told to march to the sound of gunfire.
Mario is determined to do his part to help throw off the enemy. But ignored and shunted aside, what can he do?
Orignally published in The Expanding Universe 7, “Maelstrom” is a short story in the Call to Arms: Capernica universe.
