Although the two KDP Select free days for MRS. LIEUTENANT are just over, the novel has already gotten one new review — a 5-star one:
GREAT READ! I read the whole book in less than 24 hours. As an army wife, I found the characters to be realistic and their fears and anxieties to to be accurate. One of the best “Army Wife” books out there!

Obviously I am very pleased with this review because military wives are the readers I really wanted to reach with this novel. But there is something else that is important about this review:
I clicked on the reviewer’s name and discovered she had not written any other Amazon reviews. Now I cannot prove this, but I think she may have written a review for MRS. LIEUTENANT because at the end of the novel I expressly ask for reviews and provide a direct link to do so.
At any rate, I hope that this is the reason because good reviews are very important to Amazon algorithms and readers may not think of writing a review unless requested.
Now I want to thank everyone who so graciously helped get out the word about the free days. And I have two special thank yous:
A big thank you to Anthony Wessel of Digital Book Today for all his help. And check out Digital Book Today’s daily updated list of free Kindle books with 4.0+ stars and 10+ reviews at bit.ly/Top100ListDBT
What am I doing now?
Gearing up for my next experimenting with KDP Select free days — this time for LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS. The technothriller will be free on September 3rd (Labor Day) and September 4th at http://amzn.to/NUpy9o
