and I am pleased to say that 2 of the short stories in this collection feature vets prominently – The Meeting is a poignant love story of a couple that meets during WW2; The Vacation is a SEXY story involving a wounded veteran.

…and don’t let me close this post before saying THANK YOU to all the men and women who have served our country so selflessly, past and present.

The Many Faces of Chelle Cordero

The Many Faces of Chelle Cordero is a single author collection of short stories featuring Introduction, Pussycat Tails, Holiday Happiness, Not Alone, I Swear That Raccoon Just Knocked on the Door, Stormy Weather, A Mother’s Love, More Than a Friend, The Meeting, The Vacation and a special bonus section.

One of the more popular gifts being sent to servicemen and women of our coalition forces this holiday season is an e-book reader (Kindle, Sony, iPhone, Nook, Blackberry etc.)Here is the chance to fill those readers with lots of
great reading material – and e-books from Smashwords are available to read on web browsers and laptops/netbooks as well.

When I first signed up for Operation E-Book Drop via Smashwords and author Ed Patterson I had six books – today I have nine books. Also increasing in numbers is the amount of authors who are participating in this wonderful program – on Oct 31, 2010, Mark Coker, the founder of Smashwords, said “Ed Patterson informs me over 500 indie authors are now participating in Operation Ebook Drop. Awesome! Congrats to all.”


I am pleased to say that I am STILL a participating author in Operation E-Book Drop.

Servicemen and women of our Coalition Forces are away from home and putting themselves on the line for the rest of us. No matter what your political beliefs are, most of us agree that we need to support our men and women as we pray for their safe return.

All coalition military personnel deployed overseas who need multi-format ebooks are eligible. According to Ed, “If you’re overseas and away from your home and loved ones, your dependence on reading might increase – and so we are gifting you ebooks for Kindle, Sony, iPhone, Blackberry etc.”
For free ebooks, please email Ed at ed w pat @ att . net (remove the spaces)
What is Operation E-Book Drop?

Author Ed Patterson had an online conversation with a soldier stationed in Iraq who was having difficulty getting books to read on his Kindle – there isn’t a whole lot to do for entertainment there. Ed sent the soldier a complete file of his books in Kindle format – and then the idea struck him that there might be other soldiers and other authors who would want to participate. Sure enough, lists started to form and books were being sent over the internet in various e-book formats.

Then the wonderful staff at Smashwords found out about this effort and decided to promote the program – Smashwords authors can use special coupon codes to send the members of the Coalition Forces so they can download books to their reading devices. Since Smashwords offers books in several ebook formats (including Kindle, Palm, .pdf and more), books are readable on all reading devices and even with a web browser.

Kimberlee at Vanilla Heart Publishing made sure that any VHP authors who wanted had the proper coupon codes to send…


Operation E-Book Drop

I am a participating author in Operation E-Book Drop.

What is Operation E-Book Drop?

Several authors have made their ebooks available to the coalition forces serving our countries – they send Smashwords coupon codes to these servicemen and women so they can download an ebook format for their personal ebook reading devices or computer screens.

I signed up – it is a small service I can do for the men and women who are doing for us.
