Unfortunately, I published this book a little too early. I usually receive one review per 50 sales or so, but in this case, I received a review on the very first sale.

This reader didn't like the vulgarity and pointed out a couple of flaws. She was spot-on with the flaws, which I have since fixed... Read more of this blog post »
