First reviews for CLEAR TO LIFT

I have to admit, it's terrifying to read reviews of your book. But these first ones for CLEAR TO LIFT are of the print-out-and-paste-to-your-wall variety. The kind of reviews that keep you going when you're down (and there can be a lot of down moments in this business).

It's my hope that when CLEAR TO LIFT finally releases on July 12th, you will enjoy it just as much!
