This information is so funny that I had to share it:
At the moment, during late on the first of two free KDP Select days for the technothriller LT. COMMANDER MOLLIE SANDERS that I wrote with my husband — MOLLIE is #2 in Amazon Best Sellers in FREE Sea Adventure Fiction in the Kindle store.
Robert Louis Stevenson’s TREASURE ISLAND is in first place and Homer’s THE ILIAD is in third place. Mitch’s and my thriller is surrounded by Stevenson and Homer. What a hoot!
Yes, this ranking will not last long. But it certainly is a snapshot of the strange bedfellows that Amazon’s algorithms can create.
Actually, as LCDR Sanders is a modern-day U.S. Navy warrior, it seems rather fitting that she is included with the warriors of The Iliad.
And what is interesting about the reviews for this thriller, many of the pro and con reviews talk about the portrayal of a woman in a traditionally male role.
What sometimes seems to escape people reviewing the story is that LCDR Mollie Sanders is a FICTIONAL character. Just as we accept male action heroes, we should be able to accept female action heroes.
