  1. Tom,
    I loved your site. I was one of the 54 million people that googled “how to get a book published”. I toured and then bookmarked your site. I’m old enough to appreciate the Dan Quayle-isms. Unfortunately, since they are so bad, they make the Bushisms seem minor.

  2. You have a good site here. Just wanted to let you know that is a new ebook publishing company that people may be interested in checking out.
