If you have not heard about my latest little project...
I have started a collection of books from all of my little FWA members and authors friends called -
"Operation Soldiers Library" - We are collecting excellent condition books (paperbacks, chapbooks, soft back) etc., to be donated to our service guys and gals on our fighting carrier ships, stationed overseas, etc.
We ask that you enclose a short written note inside the book of thank you, inspiration, encouragement to our fighting warriors who are going to win this battle for us! If you would like to donate a book to this great cause, please contact me either through Authors Den or the Florida Writers Association and send me in your little book donations - We will be taking them to the USO on 04/21/03!! Deadline for this event will be 04/19/03.
