Military Veteran Authors: Pledging 100% of Royalties to Charity on November 11

On Veteran's Day 2014, 50 veteran authors, two-thirds of which are combat veterans, will pledge 100% of their print, ebook and audio book royalties to their favorite veteran's charity. In most cases, these are organizations that assisted the authors personally and they are trying their best to give back.

Veterans from each branch of service and every conflict period, from Vietnam to even one author on active duty in Afghanistan at this moment, are represented here. This diverse collection of works includes New York Times and USA Today Bestsellers and covers most genres. From romance to action-adventure and everything in between, they have something for every taste!

The ultimate goal of this event is to raise at least $10,000 for the 15+ veterans charities they're supporting. If you aren't interested in any of the books available, they have a page set up ranking the money raised for each charity. Whether you contribute to the best performing or the least performing; either way your donation will be put to good use!

The complete collection of participating books and charities can be found here:

Note: For the sake of transparency, each author will post their donation receipts within 90 days. If you are a veteran author, they are accepting submissions until noon (EST) on 11 November. Please visit the Writer's Cafe at Kboards for submission details:
