‘Tis the season for extra food, extra fun, and extra book sales (at least we hope so!). Hectic holiday schedules make it easy to forget another important holiday theme: extra GIVING. Inkwater authors Rick and Alice Garlock haven’t forgotten. They’re spreading cheer among US Soldiers in Iraq this holiday season by donating copies of their book, Spirit Unbroken, to Operation Paperback.
Throughout the month of December, they are facilitating a “Buy One, Give One” deal. For every copy of Spirit Unbroken: The Two Sides of Love purchased through www.rickandalicegarlock.com (check or money order) or www.inkwaterbooks.com (credit card), a free copy will be donated anonymously to a brave soldier abroad.
Rick explains their generosity this way: “We will never forget the freedom that allows us to write and publish is won everyday on the battlefield. Much as we donate to the church youth groups at speaking engagements, we feel it is important to initiate a non-profit gesture to support our troops in a seasonal charity, and what better time could there be but at Christmas time, during the heightened spirit of giving. Please during this very critical time of the season and in the life of our nation, consider bringing a few moments of joy to an unknown soldier by purchasing Spirit Unbroken, the two sides of love (for yourself or as a Christmas present).”
