The video is beautifully constructed—you are also a great teacher. I finished my first book late last week and am thrilled with the end product. Every step of the process was a new learning curve made all the more manageable with the help of your video. Seeing you perform the process gave me not only a visual idea of what was going on, but I was also able to pick up a rhythm...an almost meditation-like process. I cannot thank you enough for providing me with this gift of learning—the realization of a life long dream.
