There's more room in a picture book . The spacing of pages should be something. End with a cuddle that's something. Thank you, continuing to listen to episodes one and two. Thank you for coming into the realm, all of you.

Great Read!

"This is another great read from [ICL]... When I saw this particular one, I grabbed it immediately ... This book is a great addition to a writer's (whether published or not) shelf ... I highly recommend their writing courses. You receive feedback on your work from published authors. You will be encouraged but also pushed to make your story from good to great."
