I got the proof of Star Sons yesterday and it's GORGEOUS! It will appear on Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and BN.com by the end of February! If you prefer to shop in a local bookstore and don't find it on the shelves, tell your bookstore it can be ordered via Ingrams, their wholesaler.
In the midst of my excitement, I got word that a cherished friend is missing in a war zone. I'm praying for him to be found, healthy and uninjured, and sent home soon. If you pray, please pray for good news to arrive quickly and for him to be reunited with his family ASAP, safely and happily. Thank you.
While you're at it, please remember all the other friends, husbands, wives, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters who serve in the military. Each one hurt is some family suffering. Pray that they all come home safely and soon, and when you see someone in a military uniform, take a moment to thank them for their service to our country, no matter what your opinion of the war. They're putting their lives on the line for us. They deserve our thanks and more. If you want to help them, go to Anysoldier.com or AnyMarine.com (the two such sites I visit the most) and get the name and address of some service person who's asked for some supplies. They need socks, energy bars, all kinds of things that are easy for us to find, but hard for them to get over there. Adopt a serviceman or woman today, okay? You'll feel a lot better for it. Thanks.
