(Hey, it’s Linda. If you made it down this far, I’ll let you in on a little secret: I still get emotional (in a good way) when I read reviews from readers. If you decide to check out my book, reach out and let me know what you think, and if you liked it, please let others know. Word of mouth is an author’s best friend. Tell your family, friends, favorite barista, UPS guy, colleague, neighbor, boss, librarian, you get the idea! Thank you!)
