I was not able to see if any comments were made this year.
If anyone comes in here still, I am a published author and my book is in the library. In the Lisle, Illinois one at least and on sale online, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc., I can post the professional review I received and hope you all will want to read it. There is a paperback and e-book.
