You CAN keep the world safe AND read books

Someone once said that fighting in a war means enduring long hours of boredom, punctuated by moments of sheer terror.  For the American soldier, that raises a question: what can he or she do to get through the boring parts?  We humbly offer a suggestion:  read books!

Farolight Publishing is proud to support Authors Supporting Our Troops (ASOT)a small but dynamic operation that puts author-donated and/or author-signed print books into the hands of our troops (all military branches) serving in remote areas (Iraq, Afghanistan, Kuwait), where the days can be long and diversions are difficult to find. Books are in such short supply that a single book can make the rounds throughout the entire base, some soldiers reading it two or three times. ASOT sends boxes of books to individual soldiers to share with their comrades, offering a variety of genres and hours of entertainment.

If you’re an author, consider sending ASOT copies of your books; if you’re a reader, please consider supporting the cause by helping defray shipping costs, etc.  You can read about the program in more detail here.

So, here’s to keeping our troops safe from boredom as they keep the world safe from terror.  (We won’t comment on the irony that we sent them a bunch of Cutting Block horror anthologies, which can inspire terror of a completely different sort.)
