Special giveaway to celebrate July

About 50 men, most of them seated, are in a large meeting room. Most are focused on the five men standing in the center of the room. The tallest of the five is laying a document on a table.

July offers several holidays to celebrate ... 

July 1: Canada Day

July 4: Independence Day

July 8: I fly to San Diego for RWA's Annual Conference

July 13: I tour Naval Base Coronado in search of SEALs

July 14: Bastille Day (Paris, France)

July 21: FBI's birthday

... I offer a special giveaway to commemorate these events!

Anne Elizabeth's SEALed WITH PASSION in the anthology WAY OF THE WARRIOR
