  2. Congrats! When I reviewed your book for the Skokie Public Library I just knew you were destined for paperback glory. ;) To my knowledge, none of my other reviewed authors have yet to make the cut.

    Best of all, because of my review I won a prize from the library: an electronic sudoku game, now taking up space in my wife's Mary Poppins purse.
