As I find gems, I'll post them here. Feel free to pitch a book to me for a potential review.
Oh, yes. I'll let you know about my clients' books, too. But I'll disclose that my clients are my clients. ... they wouldn't want it any other way.

The Andy Williams Performing Arts
Center is proud to announce that it has won the City Beautification
Award. The Tree Board presents Beautification

Missouri a better place to live,
work, and visit.
Theatre Manager, Icy Wyatt accepted the award on behalf of
Jimmy Osmond. "We are honored that the theatre is receiving this
recognition," Wyatt says. "We also want to acknowledge our

Sample 1 How Smart Is It to Take Smart Drugs? (From Dr. Lynn R. Webster's blog: http://www.lynnwebstermd.com/how-smart-is-it-to-take-smart-drugs/ .) The Myth of Brain Power If you hear something often enough, you may start to believe it. Most of us have come to believe the common myth that we use only ten percent of our brains. The truth, according to Medical News Today , is that "fMRI scans show that even simple activities require almost all of the brain to be active." However, Hollywood still enjoys imagining what would happen if people could use more of their brain power.

The good news is that Sally's wisdom and self-awareness turned her experiences into a candid, compelling memoir that all of her fans -- as well as everyone who appreciates autobiographies, as I do -- should read. Candid and compelling, " In Pieces " is a story that deserved to be told, and Sally should be gratified that she had the ability to tell it so well. Solid, poignant writing by a gifted and highly skilled actor. She is as good at parsing words as she is at working a stage (and screen). Five stars! See my full review on Amazon.
