GONE! Thanks to the donor and to Michael Z. Williamson for his incredible offer and support.
One last update and bump. The second $250 grand prize packge was to go away today, but because of the site issues, it will stay active until tomorrow. So, if you want:
• Limited edition signed copy of Freehold by Michael Z. Williamson
• Hero, signed by Michael Z. Williamson and John Ringo
• Clan of the Claw, signed by Michael Z. Williamson and John Ringo
• a copy of Tour of Duty
• a signed and personalized copy of A Different View: Travels to Al Qa'im and Beyond by yours truly
Make your donation here using T-Bone Level, by 1700 hours tomorrow (23 April 2014) and they are yours. Mike will ship his and I will ship mine separately.
UPDATE: One $250 grand prize package has been claimed (19 April 14, 2100 hours app.). However, Mike is up to do one more, and so am I. So, be the next person to donate $250 and the books are yours.
Update: One book is claimed; another has been put back for another to claim; and, the grand prize package still is not claimed. Could it be yours? Think about it, for a $250 donation you get books signed by Mad Mike, John Ringo, and even myself. Several books in the package, check it out. Putting full text of the FB post below.
Michael Z. Williamson made an offer to anyone donating to help Mission: VALOR raise funds to defray the cost of the 501(c)(3) application process. I've added another incentive to that, and may sweeten the pot even more. If you want books autographed by Mad Mike, John Ringo and/or me, check it out.
NOTE: Donations now are not tax deductible per the IRS. If the 501(c)(3) is approved your donations may be deductible. The IRS likes us to note that you should contact a tax professional for advice.
MIKE"S POST: Help Mission: Valor raise their 501(c)(3) fees. I have TWO of the limited edition copies of Freehold - Fiction signed, and I will personalize and inscribe to the first two people to donate $50 and send me a copy of their receipt. They'll even be dated before the official release date of 6 May. Plus from the comments: At $250 I'll add in The Hero - Fiction signed by me and John Ringo and Clan of the Claw signed by us both, too, in hardcover, and a copy of Tour of Duty. Further Note: at $250 I put in an autographed and personalized copy of my second book of photography from Iraq, not a fuzzy/blurry shot of the moon to be found in it anywhere.
