Hey guys! I'm back from vacation and had a wonderful time on top of a mountain in North Carolina. Just wanted to say if you haven't submitted something for the Anthology, get it in to Mike Mullins this week. You don't have to go to the conference to have a submission, but you do need to be an official member. The theme is "Silent Battlefields"...and as long as you have the rights to the material you send in, we will publish it. Your submission can be a picture, a song, a poem, a short story, an essay, an article, etc. Absolute maximum is 5000 words, but we prefer shorter.
I will be personalizing and autographing my books 'Fighting Bob' and 'Listening To Ghosts' in the book and magazine section of the Naval Air Station Jacksonville Main Exchange all day both days on Saturday and Sunday, September 1st and 2nd.
Drop by and say hello if you are in the area.
Dwight Zimmerman our soon ot be President has graciously donated ten copies each of "Saga of the Sioux and Lincoln's Last Days" to be sold at the book table at our conference and the proceeds donated toward the costs of running the awards program.
An indication of his belief in the program and the direction MWSA is taking. I am sure I speak for the members when I offer my thanks for this generous donation.
Below I have included Dwights comments on this.
With Dispatches on a brief break some authors may not have been recognized as they would normally. If you see these authors on line congratulate them.
I encourage members to check out the reviews on the folling winners.
