2013 Salute to Author Veterans #RLFblog #VeteransDay

Happy Veteran's Day 
Kayelle Allen here. Romance Lives Forever is dedicated to new authors and new books. As such, I rarely step in as a blogger -- I prefer to interview guests and feature others. My own blog, Unstoppable Heroes, is where I do my own "bragging" about new books and events. But today on RLF, I want to honor some special people: veterans.
The first Veteran's Day was called "Armistice Day" and was proclaimed by U.S. President Woodrow Wilson on November 11, 1919. In proclaiming the holiday, he said, "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country's service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations." Unlike Memorial Day, which celebrates those who died in service, Veterans Day celebrates the service itself. Wikipedia

Today, I'm honoring fellow veterans who are authors. This is by no means an exhaustive list. These folks are proud to stand and be counted. Please visit their sites, and get to know them and their books. I believe the highest honor one can pay an author is to buy his or her book.
Authors are listed in alphabetical order by first name. This list shows their brand (type of writing), name, branch of service, and website.
