    You are definitely talented enough to write top notch books…please don’t stop writing…. I play in a band that had a #3 worldwide hit in 1973…”Smokin in the Boys Room”. I still write songs and have over 7.2 million downloads on my solo songs… I’m 73 this year and as ready to go as I ever was. If i can do it, you for sure can keep writing…. My new book about myself will be called..”Just a Nobody from Nowhere”… Want in on it?
    The shows I’ve done all around the world, the people I know or have met, the places I’ve traveled…

    I know, yada yada yada… 🙂

    Keep writin, you are special at it!!!!
