Follow Friday #8



Hi all and welcome to Follow Friday!

This is a great feature hosted by Parajunkee's View and Alison Can Read and I am very excited to be taking part today.

Every week participants have to answer a question so that we can all get to know each other a little better. This week question is:

In light of 11.11.11 and Veteran’s Day tell us about your favorite soldier and how he or she is saving the world. Fictional or real life.

OK, this is a tough one as I don't know any soldiers in real life and as far as I can remember I haven't read about any either. So I'm going to have to go for the cop-out answer and say that I honestly think that all soldiers are amazing people who deserve a lot of respect for putting their lives on the line for the rest of us every single day!

Don't be shy. Let me know if you've found me through Follow Friday today and I'll come and return the favour!

Hi! I'm new to Follower Friday :D.

I agree. I think that soldiers are really brave people, but I do wish wars would come to an end...

That's not a cop out! I couldn't think of any soldiers that I know of either. But it is early and there may be someone I'm not remembering from my family. So fictional character it is!

Here's my Friday Hops

Have a GREAT weekend!

Hello! New follower here. I found the question pretty tough too but I'd have to say my great grandad who was an RAF pilot. If you'd like to pay me a visit I'm over at:

Your answer is not a cop-out at all. Great choice of words and expressing your opinion.

Have a fabulous weekend Chrissie!

Some people have friends and/or family who served or who is serving in the military. Other people aren’t really keen on the long-standing war and really have no answer at all.

As for me? I don’t know anyone who is serving or who has served so I decided to go with what I want and chose a fictional soldier as an answer. The thing is, I had four prime candidates! I did eventually end up with one with a lengthy explanation. Care to know who it is? Follow me back to http://www.howardsherman.net and find out!

In celebration of today’s cool date of 11/11/11 I’m offering a special $11 discount off all my interactive fiction books! Sure I’m a book blogger but I’m also an author. All the details of the $11 off on 11/11/11 is at the bottom of my Follow Friday blog post.

Since I’m posting this kind of late just add 'FF’ to the coupon code and it’ll be valid all weekend long!

Thank God it’s Follow Friday!
