Fantastic imagery as far as your imagination can take you.
This is no joke.
Every 65 minutes, a military veteran commits suicide.
I’m going to be honest here. Finding Mercy took a lot out of me when I wrote it. I had so much to say and there was no other way I could think to show you what I felt. Finding Mercy is not a warm and fuzzy romance. It is a struggle for one man to learn to love again, himself, and someone else. It is a book about hope, when all seems hopeless. It is a book about choosing to step out of the dark, no matter how impossible it seems.
Combat medics have a dangerous job, and part of that job is dragging wounded off hot battlefields. They have hearts for healing and helping, and because of this, cannot help collecting a few scars of their own, both physically and mentally.
If you haven’t read Finding Mercy, I’ll warn you, it probably has one of the most grisly battle scenes I’ve written. The hero is damaged—searching for peace and a way to start over. He is at a crossroads in his life that many vets face every day. He’s in pain and a very dark place. He has a weakness for the bottle, desperate to drown memories he can’t forget. For some readers, I’ve been told, the scenes are hard to stomach. What the hero goes through is too painful to read. I am aware I was pretty brutal to my hero, but I needed to paint a realistic portrait of the face of PTSD in our active duty military and veterans. This story has been called everything from graphically violent to an anti-romance.
So be it. It got your attention.
We cannot erase PTSD or injuries caused in battle by pretending they don’t exist. But we can move forward by supporting our military and vets, as they face those crossroads. Here’s a link to some facts about veterans and active duty military featured on PBS, Public Broadcasting System: http://www.pbs.org/coming-back-with-wes-moore/about/facts/
I’d like you to join me in raising some money for a great cause. I’ve asked my publisher to track all sales for this book for the month of April, May and June 2015. I’m not asking for reviews or a bump in the ratings. You don’t even have to like this book, but I hope you do. What I am asking, is that you buy this book April 1st- June 30th 2015, and share the link. It costs $2.99, the price of a cup of coffee. Not a huge chunk of change. We spend more than that on a salad or burger at any given time.
Starting April 1st and running through June 30th, I will donate my total royalties from the sale of Finding Mercy, an erotic military romance, to Wounded Warrior Project. Buy the book, help a warrior. It’s that simple. This is about something I strongly believe in. You see, I’m a vet. My husband is a vet. His grandfather served in the Navy in WWII, my father in the Air Force during Vietnam. My mother-in-law is a Marine, and both of my sons are active duty. My oldest is currently on his third deployment. My youngest, a Combat Medic, is preparing for his first.
I’ve seen the face of PTSD. It belongs to our sons and daughters, wives and husbands, fathers and mothers, grandmothers and grandfathers. It is our neighbors, friends and co-workers. It doesn’t discriminate, and it doesn’t just go away. Wounded vets need help.
Help me, help them.
If you’d like to make a donation instead of purchasing Finding Mercy, that’s awesome too. Please go directly through the Wounded Warrior Project here: http://www.woundedwarriorproject.org/
If you’d like to read my book and still give to a great cause, you can buy it at any of these links. Please purchase your copy between April 1st and June 30th:
This year has been a bit tumultuous for ffd, mostly due to the struggle of $ vs time.
After some thought, we have come up with, what we hope to be an easy transition to raising our prices. Before any one panics… this isn’t across the board…. we have decided some covers will go in to a higher category rather than simply raising all book cover design prices. For this we will add another page for higher priced designs, much like we have a sale page for lower priced covers.
What it does mean is that some cover designs will cost $70-80, while others will remain in the $40.00-$50.00.
The break down
Premade Sale covers are $25.00
Premade Mid-grade covers are $40.00
Premade high-grade covers are $70.00
custom mid-grade covers are $50.00
custom high-grade covers are $80.00
changing any of these covers into print covers is an additional $30.00
modifications to covers is still $10.00
requesting expensive images is the cost of the cover plus the cost of the image requested.
After all that, I currently don’t have a high-grade cover created yet, nor do I have it stocked, lol. That will come soon.
What types of premades can you expects to see?
More interracial covers. More Sale covers. More sweet covers.
Why these ones? Those seem to be the ones in demand :) Have other ideas you would like to see? Feel free to make a suggestion in the comments and we will try our best.
