This blog is only for the log line, also called an elevator pitch or tagline, of your book. You know, the one that sells your book for you. One of the most famous log lines in history is: In space, no one can hear you scream. Now tell me you don't know what movie that's from and I'll tell you, you've been living under a rock for the last thirty years or so.
A great log line will make your book memorable. Please share yours with us!

To continue our Veterans Day celebration, we will not have Wednesday's Wisdom today. Instead, we will have a military book to further honor those in our US military. Thank you to all military for all you do to keep us safe, happy and free. We can never thank you enough.
Here we are at the last day
of our celebration. Since the beginning of the month, we have been looking at

is a special day where those of us in the United States remember our military
personal throughout the world. Please join me in welcoming Rita Henuber as she
tells us more about the importance of this day.
Veterans Day, formerly known as Armistice Day, was originally set as a
holiday to honor the end of World War I, which officially took place on
November 11, 1918. It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in
other parts of the world.
1954 Congress amended the Act of 1938 by striking out the word
"Armistice" and inserting the word "Veterans." On June 1,
1954, November 11 became a day to honor American veterans of all wars.
modern military epitomize honor, duty, and commitment. They are the youngest,
most educated, dedicated and highly trained military to have served this
country. You don’t need to shove them towards danger you need to hold them
back. Many people think courage is the absence of fear. It isn’t! Courage is
fear overcome. The willingness to face a danger to protect someone else. A man
or woman, who one day is wearing body armor and carrying an H&K416 and the
next is wearing a barfy t-shirt and carrying their child is my definition of
heroes and heroines.
you have read, I refer to men and women
who serve. While we are more than acquainted with the names of our heroes, it’s
my observation we tend to overlook our brave heroines who have put themselves
in harms way for us. I’d like to ask you remember...
aVietnam military nurses
who saved the lives of hundreds and comforted those who could not be saved.
aWWII women Air Force service pilots who
did not get recognition or benefits until 1977.
aSgt Kimberly Munley who stopped the Ft
aAll the woman who currently serve in each
branch of the military.
the way, if you are interested in learning about women who have served recently
try the book, Band of Sisters. It offers insight from the women who have served
in Iraq and Afghanistan.
you may have guessed, I write military stories. I come from a family, who over
the years, have served in every branch of the service in every conflict since
WWI. My husband and a son were in the military. I am also a long time
government employee. Authors tend to write what we know and so, I like to think
I know enough about the military and government service to use it in my books.
people have no contact with the military and government outside of books. This
is the reason I’m so particular in how I portray my characters. Even though
it’s not the way they do it on TV. My
heroines are the ones in the military. The heroes are in government service and
they give and get honor and respect. Which is what I ask you do this veteran’s
day to all who serve and protect us.
