Author Sara Humphreys Hosts the 3rd Annual U.S. Military Wives Contest

For the past couple of years I have held a very special contest for Military Wives. It has turned out to be an incredibly rewarding experience. I had the privilege of meeting several incredible women and their beautiful families.

It's so easy to forget that there are real people who are deeply affected by the conflicts overseas. Hearing the personal stories of these families helped me remember that our troops are husbands, fathers, brothers and sons who are immensely loved and sorely missed.

Once again ASMBA-STAR, an outstanding organization for Vets and their families, has agreed to continue their partnership with me.

This contest will run from Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend. Once again, a portion of my annual book sales will be donated to ASMBA-STAR.

Who is eligible? Wives of any U.S. military service member may enter. Retired or active-duty.


How do you enter? Send an email to sarataneyhumphreys@hotmail.com with a picture of you and your family member in uniform. Tell us a bit about what branch he serves in, where you've been stationed, challenges and so forth. We want to hear your story!


Please put "3rd Annual Military Families Contest" in the subject line.

Once a week, beginning Memorial Day weekend, I will pick one entrant to be highlighted on my blog. These weekly entrants are semi-finalists. Labor Day weekend I will select three winners.

Second Prize: A $25 Amazon Gift Card, a signed copy of Unleashed and a Team Amoveo T-Shirt.

First Prize: A $50 Amazon Gift Card, a signed copy of Unleashed and a Team Amoveo T-Shirt.

Grand Prize: A book signing event at their local Bookstore and the winner will be the special guest of honor. 3 Free Signed copies of Unleashed. (1 for them and 2 of their friends) A $100 Amazon Gift card and a Team Amoveo T-Shirt.

I hope you'll help me spread the word about this contest. I look forward to meeting more incredible families! You can support our veterans and their families by purchasing a copy of Unleashed or donate directly to ASMBA-STAR .


Please spread the word to any military families you know.

Here is a video post about the contest!
