Many of the books I review were FREE in exchange for an honest review. I do not get paid to review them. Spotlights are promotional and should be regarded as ADs. They are promoting books but I do NOT get any money or goods for posting Spotlights.

I'm self published. My books are selling. Most of them are issue oriented so I have hopes I am helping someone. I want to be a better writer and I want to write better books. I am blown away by the quality of the writers Seventh Star has garnered for this book. How could you not want to support this!  I am a backer!
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
