Jacqueline Smith | 16 comments If you are an author and looking for a great way to celebrate the upcoming holidays, please consider donating one or several of your e-books or signed copies of your books to Blue Remy’s Books for Troops! You can find all the information you need here:

There is also an event to which you can RSVP:

Please consider giving to those who’ve sacrificed so much to keeping not only our country, but countries all over the world safe.

Note: This is NOT limited to Americans! The giving has reached authors all over the world!

Amy Peterson (amylpeterson) | 26 comments What a great idea and a great service to our soldiers. I'll be sending several copies of Something Furry Underfoot, my humorous, touching memoir about raising a bunch of pets my husband kept bringing home. Should make the reader laugh a lot, maybe cry a little, while providing sound advice about pets. Thanks again for doing this!

Lisa Shea (lisashea) | 188 comments I definitely agree that the more we can support our troops, in whatever way we can, the better.

It's interesting that many times even innocuous books can't be sent because they violate the sensibilities of the host country.

J.L. Hill (authorjlhill) | 139 comments Just sent 6 signed copies of Killer With a Heart, plus swag. I have 2 sons who went to the Middle East, one's out after serving his time and the other stayed in the Army. Proud of both of them.
