1. Names of people and places may have been changed in order to protect the innocent.

2. No one is paying me anything to promote their product. If I mention a specific product by name, it's because I like it.

3.  I have, however, signed up with Amazon Associates and will receive a percentage of all sales made through my book links.  No one tells me which books to recommend.  I will never recommend a book that I have not bought, read, and liked.
