Keeping things short today. I’m off to California and need to finish packing.
First, thank you to everyone who posted remembrances of their special veterans yesterday. I hope the hard lessons of Viet Nam veterans’ treatment always stay in our minds as we learn to thank those who put their lives on the line for the rest of us in every situation–from peace keeping at our embassies, to sacrifices in the fields of war, to building hospitals and distributing food to areas hit hard by disease and natural disasters. All of our armed service personnel deserve our respect. Thank you Sam and Uncle Jack–peace be with you.
Second, I have a few friends with book launches coming up. Please keep these folks in your thoughts:
- Donnell Ann Bell – Buried Agenda – November 7th. This is Donnell’s fourth book, and is bound to be a success: “Diana Reid is an investigative reporter skilled at uncovering other people’s secrets. It’s her own that she works to keep buried. . .”
- Bruce Most – Rope Burn — Book signing. “For those of you in the Denver area, I will be signing copies of ROPE BURN this coming weekend at the Colorado Authors’ League booth at the Junior League’s Holiday Mart.”
- Mark Stevens – Trapline – Book Launch Party November 21, 7:00 at the Tattered Cover, LoDo — This is Mark’s third in the Allison Coil mystery series. “Allison’s third adventure (Buried by the Roan, 2011, etc.) combines a loving portrait of a beautiful area with an ugly, all-too-believable conspiracy that could have been ripped from today’s headlines.”

Wishing you a happy, safe week.
