They provided a quick turnaround and provided an excellent review that I am able to use on my book’s website and my book’s listings on Amazon.com and BarnesandNoble.com. Two thumbs up from this customer!” Mike Kowis, Esq. Author of Engaging College Students: A Fun and Edgy Guide for Professors
“I’m thrilled by the Publishers Daily review of Glossolalia: Psychological Suspense, which demonstrates clear understanding of the book’s references to real-world corruption. An intelligent, sensitive, articulate reviewer is as important as the author in completing a book, and bringing it to its larger audience.” Tantra Bensko Author of Glossolalia and Encore: A Contemporary Love Story of Hypnotic Abduction
