Thanks. :slight_smile: book is coming. I have two more to finish before I tackle the Tinderbox book. A draft in Aug/Spet. is possible.


Will be happy to proof-read the manuscript… I am also a key tester: if I can follow and put its contents into practice, anyone can :wink:

Wishing you much success with your current projects / books! Thanks for all you share on this Forum / your channel!
