Veteran’s Day 2014 Charity Challenge: Gone, but Not Forgotten!

On Veteran’s Day 2014, 50 veteran authors will pledge 100% of their print, ebook and audio book royalties to their favorite veteran’s charity. In most cases, these are organizations that assisted the authors personally and they are trying their best to give back.

Veterans from each service branch and every conflict period, from Vietnam to even one author deployed to Afghanistan at this moment, are pledging. This diverse collection of works includes New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers and covers most genres. From romance to action-adventure and everything in between, there’s something for every taste here!

The ultimate goal of this event is to raise at least $10,000 for the 15+ veterans charities they’re supporting. If you aren’t interested in any of the books available, they have a page set up ranking the money raised for each charity and spotlighting bonus donations here. Whether you contribute to the best performing or the least performing, either way your donation will be put to good use!

The complete collection of participating books and charities can be found here:

You can also chat with many of the veterans authors during a live online event on Veteran’s Day.

Note: For the sake of transparency, each author will post their donation receipts within 90 days. If you are a veteran author, they are accepting submissions until noon (EST) on 11 November. Please visit the Writer’s Cafe at Kboards for submission details:

Donation to Landstuhl Hospital Care Project Finally Paid!

I’ve finally sent out all my royalties from the sale of Power Games (Operation Enduring Unity 1) from 1 Nov to 31 Dec 2013 to the Landstuhl Hospital Care Project .

Sorry it took so long, not all retailers report sales the same month.

Landstuhl Hospital Care Project is an amazing charity that supports wounded service members straight out of combat. Especially during that lonely period where they’re recovering, but their family is back in the States and their buddies are still downrange. A particularly rough time.

These people helped me greatly when I was wounded in Iraq back in ’05. Swing on over to their page and show your support:
