I’ve been writing a lot of stuff in the last 4 years, and have gotten a LOT of great comments and feedback. People read what I write… and that always surprises me, but also honors what I write about…
So that got me to thinking – all the folks who read my articles (and free sample chapters of my current book “The Making of a Warrior) – and who’ve made comments and who have written back ALSO have lots of stories! (Well DUH Kuiken! Took you this long to figure that out?)
This year I’d like to start out by reaching out to you! I’ve seen and read some of those stories, so here’s your invitation. I’d like all of you who have a story or stories to send them in to me!
Don’t worry if you think they’re not “professional”, just make them real – what happened or what you feel. Funny incidents. Tough times. Tales from the ‘front lines’, personal stories, whatever…just send them!
As I’ve mentioned before, here’s what I write about (which also happens to be what my “Bekker” series of books are about – both the 5 book Warrior mini-series and the 5 book Protector mini-series). If you find yourself or anyone you know in any of these categories – I want to hear from you!
If you are (or are related to or know) anyone in the military, a veteran, law enforcement, firefighter, emergency medical services, or anyone who serves others, and because of that service, places their own life or well-being at risk…I WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!
We will be looking at the stories you send in, and hope to publish some of them on my webpage and other sites (which puts them directly in front of 7K(+) readers nationally, and potentially many more indirectly).
You can submit your story or your contact information here, or go to the “Contact” page on my website – JamesKuiken.com.
So, here’s your invitation!! Don’t overthink it, don’t hesitate, just sit down and write it! Send it in, and let’s show the rest of the world what’s important, funny, heartbreaking, etc. for you – and to all of us. I can’t wait to hear your story!
