Popping in to let readers know that The 30th Day will be free on Amazon’s ebooks all three days this Memorial Day weekend, Saturday through Monday. My blog post of February 26, 2016 gives some details about the book and how it came to be (pull up February 2016 in the Archives box in the column to the right to find the post most easily).
If you miss the free window, the cost is just $2.99. You don’t have to own a Kindle to read an ebook. Apps are readily available that allow you to read them on a variety of electronic devices.
Here is a link to the book on Amazon’s ebooks site: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01C7KMHOC
If you read the book and like it, a short review would be greatly appreciated. You can do a review by visiting your Amazon account page and pulling up recent purchases.
Meanwhile, to all the soldiers and veterans out there: Thank you for your service, especially on this coming day which honors your fallen brethren. It looks like the weather in the DC area will be great for Rolling Thunder, an annual event held on the Sunday before Memorial Day that draws attention to and advocates for POWs and MIA service members. It has grown from a couple of thousand riders in 1988 to half a million in recent years. Riders gather in the Pentagon parking lot and at noon they start up their bikes at the same time (my, what a roar!). They proceed slowly across the Memorial Bridge to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. It is a powerful thing to witness. I can only imagine what it must be like to actually participate. Who knows. Maybe some day I’ll be towing a motorcycle behind my little house and will be able to join the ride.
Everyone, enjoy this weekend and stay safe!
