    Great stuff. Mark makes no promises of guaranteed success, but simply provides the techniques and information that can help an author along the way. It gave me a lot to think about. I've got some work to do...

    Interesting story. It starts slowly in action and character development, but as the story unfolds there is a nice balance of humor and creativity.
  • The Blank Page on Aug. 19, 2012

    After deleting the first eight drafts of the review I think this story deserves, I give up. It will just have to be simple. It's awesome and the author has an unmistakable talent for weaving a compelling story that is easy to get lost in. Great read.
