This past Veterans’ Day weekend, I was happy to join the Indie Book Collective in honoring our veterans through Blog Tour de Troops. By the time the four days of the tour were over, over 100 people had stopped by to leave comments and 250 e-copies of Pandora’s Grave were donated to our nation’s active duty military. It was truly humbling to see the outpouring of support for those who have proudly served this country.
I’d like to take this opportunity to thank those who made this possible. First of all, to Iraq War veteran Michael Piro for being willing to take my questions, for his service to our country, and for his hard work to help his fellow veterans in their continuing battle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, or PTSD. Please visit Mike’s blog at www.ptsdsurvivordaily.com and express your support. It’s a great site, and one that I would recommend for anyone with family in the military.
Secondly, to the staff of the Indie Book Collective(www.indiebookcollective.com) for all of their hard work in organizing and advertising the event. Great job!
And last, but not least, a huge thank-you to my sponsors, for reposting their reviews of Pandora’s Grave and sending traffic our way for the tour. By way of thanking them, let me introduce you to their work and tell you a little about their sites.
If you’re not familiar with www.manoflabook.com, you really should be. This great book review blog is run by Zohar Laor and covers books from nearly all genres. I’ve been picking up book recommendations from Zohar for the last few months, and he has yet to steer me wrong: his review of Pandora’s Grave only served to confirm my opinion of his good taste in literature. Be sure to stop by, check out the reviews and take part in one of his many sponsored giveaways: it might be your lucky day. 🙂
My good friend and fellow author Collette Scott was my second sponsor for the Tour and I would strongly encourage you to visit her blog www.collettescott.blogspot.com and check out her new book, If We Dare to Dream, a powerful story of a soldier accused of murder.
Thank you all, and may God bless our soldiers!
