I thought some of you who have not read my new book,Downloads from Heaven, might like to read the recommendations along with my dedication page and the foreward – if you are interested you can order the book from me by writing to me at my email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. I have started to write my next book this week and have the introduction and two chapters completed.
