Welcome everyone!! If you're following along, you've just come from visiting Rachel Thompson and when you leave here, make sure you continue on to see Stacy Verdick Case!
I am so excited and proud to be part of this event, brought to us by the Indie Book Collective! If you're familiar with them, every month they provide readers like you and me, the chance to increase our reading library by giving away ebooks. All you need do is visit the authors blog, leave a comment and VOILA - an ecopy of their book is yours.
For this event - it's even BIGGER because not only can you get up to 50 new ebooks but for every comment, one of our beloved troops gets an ecopy as well!!
I'm not sure how many of you know, but I'm an Australian and moved to the USA close to 12 years ago. I loved where I was born and raised, still hold an incredible sense of homesickness and I'll admit, it broke my heart to leave but love has you do crazy things. I can truly say, I didn't know what patriotism was until I watched my youngest daughter, and it's been an experience that has deeply touched my heart.
I came right before 9/11 and was horrified by what happened. I joined everyone, watching the TV as report after report was shown and we were all devastated. But do you know what I also remember ? The incredible spirit that emerged - the way a country rallied. The way my daughter would beg each time she heard a patriotic song on the radio and sing it loudly ... proudly. The way her eyes would light up when she was able to honor the brave troops who were willing to sacrifice everything for her freedom. Our freedom. Such a little girl at the time but she taught me a huge lesson - for every privilege I enjoy, someone has fought hard for it. There's a few songs we love to sing - her favorites but I wanted to show one of mine.

As my part of this event, I was hoping to have my latest release, Blood Oath completed. It's release has been bumped back a week so I have a special offer for everyone. For those who comment today, I will send not only an ecopy of Blood Oath, #3 in the Mystic Wolves series when it's released next week BUT to get you started on the series, I'm also giving away Without Mercy, #1 in the series and short story!! What a deal, right? Books #1 AND #3!!
So make sure you leave your name and email in the comments so I can send you the ebooks. I'd also love to hear what patriotic song you love to sing along to.
Please feel free to visit Lacey Weatherford Books for her review of Without Mercy. She'll even share what she thought about the sneak peek of Blood Oath.
