Starting in September, I’ll be hosting a special event on the blog every month.
September 12-18 – Military Appreciation Week – Accepting all military-related stories, shout-outs to any military member, shout-outs to former military members. Did you serve in the military? If you had a great-great grandfather in the Civil War, you’re in! Any military-style book or short story, any personal military memoir or essay, anything weapons related. Accepting pictures. Deadline for this event is September 5.
In the meantime, if you want to lend a hand (or a pile of books) to service members overseas, check out these sites –
