Comments Off on MindingSpot Review: “A highly recommended read.”

I was raised to not toot my own horn, which is hard when promoting a book, since, you know, that’s basically all horn-tooting.  So sharing positive reviews sometimes feels a bit like bragging.  But here I go anyway! I loved the MindingSpot’s effusive and lovely review of THE SECRET SIDE OF EMPTY.  And – here’s […]
