Thak you for the letter, I have not yet read this book, I stress on yet because I'm certainly going to try and read it, because, to me it seems inspirational and educational. Many people can Identify their lives with yours and gain from it

"The Sword Swallower and a Chico Kid" was the first OnlineBookClub book that I read, and the first review that I wrote. I loved your book. You made me laugh, and you made me cry, sometimes on the same page.

It was nice to come across this post and to get an update on your life. Congratulations on the beautiful family. I know you're proud. 💕

Hey Gary! I was looking through the forum topics on your book and was thrilled to see that one of them was written by you! I thoroughly enjoyed your book! It had me laughing and I am not ashamed to say that I also shed a tear or two. Anyway, I just wanted to say congratulations. It's an awesome piece of work. Thanks for giving us some insight into your experience while writing it. Looking forward to the next book!

I can not wait to read your new book! I loved The Sword Swallower and a Chico Kid! It was a great book for so many reasons. I loved the language you used, and the characters were great. I explained more in my review: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=82247

I would recommend this to all of my friends. I know a lot who can relate in this book. I saw some of my friends in the characters. It was a hit! Keep writing, and I look forward to reading your next book!

Its amazing to see how an accidental friendship helped both of them on a personal level. The addition of the authors own touch to the story makes the story so much more interesting to read. Thank you for sharing your story and giving the reader a glimpse into the mind of the author.
