Veterans Day Honoring Veterans
of the U.S. Military Servces
On Veterans Day, November 11, we honor veterans who served in the U.S. Military. This date also marks the end of World War I when the armistice with Germany was signed at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918. 
Please remember to say thanks to a vet now and anytime you meet a veteran.

At the Girls Succeed! blog you can well imagine we are honoring all vets, but especially featuring the women who have been a part of the U.S. Military since the American Revolutionary War. Hop on over to the Girls Succeed! blog and discover highlights of the history of the women who have served our country.

This Week: 

Pastor Christine Hobbs never imagined 
she would be caring for a flock that includes 
a pig, a kangaroo, and a murderer.

Monday (today): Lacey, the florist in my mystery/romance, introduces readers to Pastor Christine, the main character in Coda to Murder. Pop on over to find out about her friend, Chris, at the MuseItUp Publishing blog. All this month authors are sharing their characters with readers. Lots of characters over there and I don't mean just on the blog!! LOL.
