This book is well read in bathrooms

 

My book finally arrived at my house today! To say I'm a little bit excited to finally be holding my very own book in my very own hands would be an understatement. Its a difficult feeling to describe what it is like to have that physical, tangible proof of all your hard work and your imagination put together. I love the way the cover turned out! And I'm just so dang happy to have my book here!!

I got the following email from an old friend today. It made me laugh till I cried- which was much needed, I might add. There's been a little heartbreak around these parts this week. While one dream came true with the book, another one fell apart. I know I'll pick up the pieces and survive. But it was a heartache I didn't expect and thought I would never have to deal with again. But life goes on (eventually). Until then- ice cream! (And the pursuit of "perfect week!")

The email- 
"You need to know that because of your book, my family thinks that I have a stomach virus. Is it my fault that taking extended time in the bathroom is the only way I am going to get through this book and see what happens to Haley???? Granted sitting on Spencer's step stool is starting to really get uncomfortable, may have to look into 'reorganizing the closet' as my next excuse to get more reading done!!!"



Don't miss my new novel, "You Heard It Here First!" on Amazon, Nook, and Kindle!

LOOKING FOR VIETNAM DRAFT LOTTERY PARTICIPANTS!! Nearly 50 years ago, on December 1, 1969, America sat glued to their television sets. CBS Washington correspondent Roger Mudd was at the Selective Service headquarters, where he said the words that would change the lives of thousands of men and their families. “Good evening…Tonight for the first time in 27 years the United States has again started a draft lottery.” NY Congressman Alexander Pirnie, the ranking Republican on the House Armed Services Committee, reached into a nondescript glass container, and pulled out the first little blue capsule. On it was written a date, a birth date to be exact, and every American male born in the years 1944-1950 born on that date were drafted into the U.S. Military. ​ September 14 was the first number drawn. April 24 was second, and December 30 was third. By the end of the night, every young man had a draft number of 001-366. It was expected that those in the lowest one-third of the numbers would be drafted. A higher number, closer to 300 were probably safe. ​ The Draft had been around for many years, but it was at the time, still a volunteer draft. A man had a choice whether or not to join. On December 1,1969 that all changed. ​ The anniversary of the 1969 lottery is approaching. I am writing a book about those men whose draft numbers were 001-100. I am trying to find the men, or their surviving their families, and spouses, to be interviewed about how the lottery changed their lives. I am interested in interviewing any man who had a low lottery number, this includes war veterans, as well as conscientious objectors, dodgers, or those rejected for health reasons. If requested, your name does not have to be included with your story in the book. Privacy will be respected. ​ If you or someone you know may be interested in sharing their story about how the Vietnam War Draft Lottery changed their life, please contact me at VietnamDraft50th@gmail.com or visit http://ift.tt/2qzKjAP. ​ Thank you. Please feel free to share this post with others. #memorialday #supportourtroops #godblessamerica #vietnamwar #vietnamveteran
