Day 15 Kindle Scout Campaign: The Magic Christmas Train — What is a Victory Girl?

Today I want to talk about a subject often avoided when discussing World War II.

Victory Girls.

According to a story I read in a magazine from 1943, these were young women and sometimes teens who got caught up in the excitement of the war and were looking for thrills.

With the dashing, young servicemen going off to war.

Too often they got in over their heads and ended up trading sexual favors from very sweet to “going all the way” for a movie date or soda and ice cream if they could find it. Everybody had a job back then and too often young girls thought it was their “patriotic duty” to kiss the boys and . . . well, let’s say, they grew up too fast. They had no friends on social media to compare notes with, especially girls in small towns who had little contact with the world except what they saw in the pictures. And that world was glamorous and filled with style. So it was no wonder, young women got caught up in the romance.

Thank goodness for mothers like Ma in my story, The Magic Christmas Train. She’s always there for Kate and Lucy and it’s her healing strength that gets her daughters through the war.  She shows up when the girls least expect it, and puts herself on the line with Pop to keep Kate safe. Meet Ma and Kate and Lucy in The Magic Christmas Train.

And here’s the fun part . . . if you nominate my book and it’s selected for publication by Kindle Press, then you get a FREE advance copy!

The train plays a major part in my story when Kate Arden time travels back to 1943 in my Kindle Scout book “The Magic Christmas Train.

It’s HOT and Trending as I write this, part of the process to be selected for publication by Kindle Press.

So if you like trains and a hot, sexy hero, check them both out in The Magic Christmas Train here:


On a cold December day in 1955, I got on a train to go back home for Christmas.

This is the story of what happened when I got off that train.

In 1943.

An old letter written after the war on army stationery brought me here. A chance to save the life of the man I loved. We were going to be married, but he was called up for active duty and was killed. The letter details why the mission went wrong. If I warn him back in this time, can I save his life?

Or will fate have a bigger surprise in store for me?

Kindle Scout is where you choose which books are published!

If the book(s) you nominate are chosen for publication, then you receive a FREE advance copy from Amazon.

Check out my Kindle Scout book “The Magic Christmas Train.” It’s a holiday Time Travel romance:

Imagine if you could go back to a special Christmas, see family and friends you miss, and change the course of your life . . . and save the man you love from being killed overseas during World War 2.

So hop aboard the Magic Christmas Train and meet the Arden Family doing their best to support the troops during that Christmas of 1943.

Thank you!!


PS – if you ever wanted to go home again . . . this is the story for you. A hot, sexy hero, a time traveling heroine who tries to save him, and the magic of a small town Christmas . . . and plenty of good food!
