Higher Honor on Tour NOW!!

First, my apologies to S. M. Kirkland (aka Susan or Suz to a few), author of Higher Honor because I don't have a review completed yet. I read her wonderful novel several times already, but due to many obstacles and interruptions, the review just isn't quite ready for blogging. I expect to have it up later today. For now, though, I want to whet your appetites with a cool trailer-sneak peak and a summary.

When Cadet Cassidy Sanders is brutally assaulted, she struggles to carry on as she turns further from the God of her youth. Her attacker is an acquaintance who has his own struggles to face. God uses their mutual friends to show both cadets the depth of his grace and mercy.Higher Honor is set within the sub-culture of America’s military colleges. The novel focuses on the elements of honor, brotherhood, duty, and the spirit of the characters to face and overcome challenges that grow them into the military’s next generation of strong, capable leaders. The realism of Higher Honor’s setting and plot is a result of experience, observation, and much research.

S.M. Kirkland brings firsthand experience to her fiction. While a student at North Georgia College and State University (the senior military college of Georgia) she enlisted in the Georgia Army National Guard. During a 10-year military career, she served as a photo- and broadcast journalist while serving in Italy and for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta.Kirkland currently works for the Calhoun Times as the government reporter and her feature stories have appeared in newspapers nationwide. Her first fiction publication was a short story “Fair Balance” included in the anthology Light at the Edge of Darkness (TWCP, 2007). This story received several rave reviews.

Release date is set for December 1, 2008, but you may pre-order from the following:

WOW! After seeing the trailer, I was almost brought to tears. If I can get into it through this, the book must be great too. We've been on military posts where some of those cadences have been shouted and it took my breath to hear them again. Thanks for the chance to win the book. (is it ok to write here too, though I entered a comment another place on this same blog?)
