5star-flat-webRecently, I was notified of my selection again as a Best Marketing Tips monthly winner by Readers’ Favorite. And as such, I selected another 5 express reviews package for Odes On Ali as my prize. Again, as before, I was overwhelmed by the positive response and wonderful words from all 5 reviewers. All gave my book 5 Star ratings. The reviews in their entirety can be found on my book page at the Barnes and Noble site, as well as at the Google books site, and my Readers’ Favorite review page. Below, I will leave a brief excerpt from each, but check out each in its entirety at one of the places I listed. Thanks.
