Smile Saint Nicholas, The Christmas Story

Hey everyone! I wrote an adventurous holiday novel for you to read. It's called Saint Nicholas, the Christmas Story, and is available on Amazon in the Kindle store or in Smashwords. It's historical fiction fantasy - humorous, adventurous, and romantic.

Thanks again.

Product Description
From his early days as a monk working with orphans to his final days as Bishop, this historical fiction fantasy novel details the life of the true Saint Nicholas, as never told before.

In an effort to help the poor in Asia Minor, Nicholas makes a risky trip to Byzantium (soon to be Constantinople), but finds himself evading the evil Emperor, Diocletian, who tracks him down across the middle east.

Escaping to the mountains east of Byzantium and north of Myra, Nicholas finds a winter wonder-land where a community of dwarfs live to escape cruel treatment from Rome. The little people are gifted craftsmen and entrepreneurs. The Bishop also falls in love with a beautiful woman, challenged with the choice of leaving a life of celibacy for an intimacy of a more earthly kind.

The Bishop discovers his monastery burned by Roman soldiers upon his return, and is later turned in by the Cardinal himself.

Imprisoned and sentenced to death, his only hope is the successor to Diocletian, the Warrior Constantine.

More than just an adventurous love story, SAINT NICHOLAS, THE CHRISTMAS STORY comes alive with the spirit of Christmas as we follow the world's greatest gift-giver, reminding us what giving is really about.

It sounds like a wonderful story but since I own a Sony, I can't read it on my Reader. I know I can use Kindle for the PC but I refuse to buy Kindle books until the DRM is broken so I can read it away from my computer, which I can only do for short periods of time to do physical ailments.
