I want to thank you for all the quality work you have put into this project! I have reviewed each chapter and must confess that I have no concerns or need for adjustments in the narrating of my book. Your female dialogue was excellent, you were engaging with your words, and you expressed the right emotions at the right time.Derek Ferris, author of YOU, ME & OCD
Just approved the audio files. Fantastic job; first [audiobook] I've done so far with no corrections needed. Can't wait to get this one out there. Thanks for such an enjoyable experience.Michael Chambers, author of CHARACTER ISSUES
I made the right selection to produce my book! Wow, you really nailed it, I can tell you have spent a lot of time on it. Thanks Mike for the awesome job you did on this book!Warren Robinson, author of REMEMBERING VIETNAM
Wow, wow, wow! This is so cool. Mike has done an incredible job–love the characters he's developed and different inflections. I found myself chuckling from time to time as he brought moments to life. The story sounds better than it reads–somehow it's become more cinematic, which is great. I absolutely love this and you have no idea how much this means to me to hear this come to life like this after 45 years. I'm so dang happy.Leroy Henry, co-author of BLUEBERRY MUFFINS ARE UP A BUCK A PAIR
