Holiday Plans

With the approach of Memorial Day weekend, many people are preparing for the extended holiday.  It's that time of year when we get together with family and friends for cold drinks and BBQ's.  But it's also a time to reflect on those that have sacrificed themselves for our freedom.  We often forget the true meaning of Memorial Day.  A day to honor the men and women who showed outstanding bravery while in the line of duty and the families that are left with only memories of them.
I am proud to announce the 1st annual Blog Tour de Troops.  This is not your average blog tour.  You don't have to compete against other readers for a prize.  In this tour everyone wins.  Just think of it as an open bar for ebooks.  This event consists of 35 talented authors that are gifting each person that comments on their blog with one of their ebooks!  But wait, it gets even better.  Not only will you receive an ebook, but for every comment left, an ebook will also be donated to a soldier.  The generosity of these authors astounds me!  
I hope you will stop by and say hi to them and help a soldier get an ebook.  If you have a specific soldier that you would like to gift it to, please let them know and they will make sure they receive it.  If you can't make the tour, click the link on my sidebar and make a donation toward sending Kindles to our troops.  No amount is too small to give.
I plan to be sitting poolside this weekend with my laptop and loading up my Kindle.  Hope to see you all on the tour!  If you do participate, the best way to thank these authors is by leaving a review for them.

One of my fave authors Amber Scott is leading this tour, so head over to her blog tomorrow and leave a comment for your copy of Irish Moon.  I loved this book and I've been bugging her to hurry up and finish book 2 Enchanted Moon.
