MIA: MISSING IN ATLANTA
MIA: MISSING IN ATLANTA will hit bookstores next week! The photo was taken to announce a booksigning in my local area, on March 13th. Karen Duncan, standing on the right, owns Omega Books and always hosts events that are fun for customers and writers alike.
MIA is the story of a U.S. Army Captain’s search for a missing girlfriend he met while on R&R in Atlanta. I wrote the novel when my son was deployed for his second tour in Iraq and dedicated the book to the brave men and women in uniform.
To support our troops, I’m donating free copies of my book to military personnel in the name of each customer who buys MIA at the March 13th signing. The books will be distributed to soldiers traveling through Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta, and the customers will be invited to inscribe personal messages to the soldiers.
When I talked to the major who works at the airport, he was thrilled with the idea and said hundreds of soldiers—often as many as 700--pass through Hartsfield-Jackson each day. Many of them have hours to kill between flights. Hopefully, they’ll enjoy having a book to read along with the good wishes of people who appreciate the sacrifices they make so our country can remain free.
God bless our military and God bless the USA!
Wishing you abundant blessings!
