This December 2014, 100% of my author royalties for the Romancing Wisconsin book AUTUMN BLISS will be donated to Wounded Warrior ProjectI've chosen WWP again, in honor of my son in the Army, my veteran husband, father, and father-in-law...not to mention all the other brave men and women who serve or have served in the US Armed Forces. I am grateful for their service, their sacrifices, and the sacrifices of their families every day.

I can't help the veterans without you, so how can you help?

Buy the book for just $2.99
To put it in perspective, that's less than the cost of a greeting card at Hallmark or a fancy cup of coffee at Starbucks.

I make approximately $2* off of each book sale, and every penny will be donated to WWP. Last December I rounded up to send Wounded Warrior Project an even $1000. I'd love to increase that donation this year, but I can't do it without YOU.

If you already have a copy of AUTUMN BLISS, then consider gifting a copy to all your friends who enjoy reading. Every sale will help!

After a string of bad luck, Mallory Parker is convinced her future lies way beyond the streets of the small home town that stole her mother’s hopes and dreams. As soon as she saves enough money at her new job, she’s going to get out and get a life, and no one can tempt her to stay—until she meets the man who does.

Army veteran Levi Jenkins is still dealing with the aftermath of his last tour of duty. Working in the background as a maintenance man at Whispering Pines Lodge gives him the peace his soul craves. The last thing he wants is the distraction of a woman who charms his heart while teaching him to smile again. Or maybe, that’s exactly what he needs.

Levi fears loving her and losing her would be too much to endure—and yet, asking Mallory to stay could destroy the very essence that makes her so special. If either of them are to be happy, he must find the courage to set her free.

I picked Autumn Bliss this year because Levi Jenkins is a Army veteran who works at Whispering Pines Resort. Whispering Pines is owned by Major Mark Riley (Mistletoe Magic, book 2), who operates the resort half as a business, and the other half as a donation funded retreat location for veterans, military members, and their families. His wife, Janelle, also runs a non-profit no-kill animal rescue on the same property. (See my Dec. 2012 charity drive HERE.)

Mallory teaches Levi how to smile again, and he helps her see that home is where the heart is.

Grab a copy for yourself, or gift one to a friend (or both) and help me help the veterans

"As the wife of a Vietnam Vet it is great to see books that go into some of the wounds these Vets from all wars suffer that are not all physical. I also love the setting of a place where Vet family's can come to help heal. Not all people who need to heal their soul are vets and it is wonderful to see two damaged souls come together and help each other find happiness. I loved this book and all of the books in the Romancing Wisconsin Series." ~ Darlene, Amazon Reviewer

"As a Wife of a U.S.Marine veteran I highly recommend this book. LOVE LOVED IT." ~ Marine'sGirl, Amazon reviewer

"I have now read all the Romancing Wisconsin series to date, & have to say I've loved them all, but Autumn Bliss is my favorite." ~ Jaqueline, Amazon Reviewer.

Sharing this post with friends on FB, Twitter, Google Plus and all your other social sites would be a big help as well.

Thank you very much ~

May you have a safe and healthy
Merry Christmas!
