Military Success Network continues with posts marking Veterans Day with this special tribute offer by three former military wives and novelists. Please share- we will all grow as we Hear, Understand and Acknowledge – our H.U.A. mission on Military Success Network. This triad of women writers has joined forces to honor Veterans Day by each sharing their books for FREE. The books are available on Amazon for one day only on Sunday, November 11, 2012, in Kindle format (see links below to download a free app to read it on your computer)
Links to each of these novels and the free ebook download are available on this author’s page. The titles are:
“All three of us are grateful for having been military wives, and we hope to expand the appreciation of this unique sisterhood to others who have not had the opportunity to experience this life for themselves,” says Phyllis Zimbler Miller an Army spouse for two years.
“Regardless of the length of time, all three of us were deeply impacted by the military way of life.”
Regardless of the branch of service, the three novels all have one common theme: how the sisterhood of military wives is a strong support network.
The understanding of a strong support network is what brought the three women authors together to promote their books online.
“Our connections go back over four years ago, when Bonnie — a stranger to me — defended MRS. LIEUTENANT against a comment that the novel was not realistic of military life,” says Phyllis Zimbler Miller.
“The novel had just been named a 2008 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award semifinalist and someone had decided to attack it. Bonnie championed the book and I thanked this stranger. Later we “met” on Twitter and recognized our former connection.”
Air Force pilots who knew both Bonnie and Kathleen were writing a novel about Air Force wives and connected them. Then all three became members of the Military Writers Society of America. The Society has a very active Facebook group.
Collaborating seemed a natural and supportive step. It made sense that if people read one of their novels and liked it, those people would also be interested in reading the other two novels.

The goal for all three novels this Veterans Day, is to reach both military audiences and non-military audiences to foster better understanding of the military way of life.
