We're getting ready for the 12th Annual SOS America Military Tribute at the RT Booklovers Convention:
Join Kathryn Falk, Lady of Barrow, in saluting our military heroes and their families. Readers will "deploy" to a military location (themed table) hosted by authors connected to the military, including Heather Ashby, Elizabeth Boyle, Beth Ciotta, Chanel Cleeton, Emmy Curtis, Delilah Devlin, Elizabeth Essex, Lea Griffith, Sharon Hamilton, Elle James, Sabrina Jeffries, Cat Johnson, Kennedy Layne, Ophelia London, Siera London, Merline Lovelace, Sally MacKenzie, Crista McHugh, Lindsay McKenna, Angel Payne, Ella Quinn, Elle J. Rossi, Susan Stoker, Paige Tyler, Julie Ann Walker, and Kimberly Rocha/Book Obsessed Chicks. Plus an Aussie Table with Megan Bamford and a Canadian Table with Julie Rowe to appreciate our Allies!
Your mission includes tasting MREs, navigating the coin challenge, and singing the services' songs - The Army Goes Rolling Along", "Wild Blue Yonder", "Anchors Aweigh", "The Halls of Montezuma", and "Semper Paratus".
This event is open to romance readers and military families in the Dallas area. Sign up for tickets at this link. I will also have tickets available at the SOS America Promo Table in Club RT on Wednesday, May 13.
Contact Kim Lowe, email@example.com, to host a table or donate door prizes.
Thanks to Heather Ashby, Anne Elizabeth, Gail Hart, Lorraine Heath, Elizabeth Langston, Julie Rowe, and Susan Ann Wall for donating door prizes.
Perhaps you, dear readers, are wondering what you can do to support this event, even if you are not attending. I am seeking thank you cards (and blank cards) - store bought, home made, and charity giveaways - for readers to sign for deployed personnel. If you have any cards to donate, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
