Forgive me for not contacting you sooner, but we all were so pleased with the article you wrote about Yousaf’s quest and determination to run Kwik Korner.  His ultimate goal is to own the business and real estate, and I’ll bet he’ll get it done.

We have had so many favorable comments from folks who saw the article, and can’t thank you enough for the wonderful job that you did on it.

Glad that you write for the Surveyor!

Mary Barron, Assistant Principal at Turner Middle School
I just wanted to write and say thank you for such a nicely written article in Thursday’s Berthoud Surveyor.
It was a pleasure to read – the office secretary took the liberty of blowing it up to poster-size and plastering it on my office door.
It was fun!
Michele Jurs  BA, CNA Director of Business Development

I wanted to thank you for writing a wonderful article for us on the Be Close Monitoring system and Nurse Next Door.   We will follow-up the article with some advertising in the future.  Once again thank you.

Thank you for the excellent article you wrote on me for the Berthoud Surveyor. I thought it was great.

Rebecah Propst, Author (commenting on the article when she appeared on television in New York)

Your article was phenomenal!  And it made the front page!  I love the fact you didn’t write the same thing everyone else has written ad nauseum—and all your facts are correct.

Again, thanks for the article.

(On reviewing Propst’s book)  His well-written review of my book was insightful and accurate.”

Scott Byorum, Author of The A.M. God    Windsor, CA

When I learned that Bob did book reviews and was a writer, I approached him for a professional and honest assessment of my first published book, The A.M. God. What struck me most about Bob was his genuineness. He treated me with great respect and professionalism and in a manner that made me feel like his colleague, though he has vastly more experience than I do. I felt his review of my book was candid, constructive, and conveyed accurately the value of it to those who might be interested in the writing style and subject matter. I got the impression that Bob has an open mind and enjoyed taking on the project to stimulate his own growth. If and when I publish another book, I will definitely seek out his opinion again. Thank you, Bob!”

Eric Mott, Author of We Met at Starbucks  Littleton, CO

“My wife and I asked Bob to review our book, We Met at Starbucks, which he graciously agreed to do. His write-up was thoughtful and thorough. We could tell that he read our story with care. listened to the message it contained, and appraised it with insight. He takes his craft as seriously as he did our little book.

Gina Beck, author Campion,  CO

Thank you for the great article that you wrote about me and my book “The Secret Barn Door”.  The pictures turned out beautiful!  Piccolo thanks you, too, for the nice picture.
