    Everyone must have this book!

    If you, like me, have trouble writing letters, then this book is for you! I met the author at a seminar she did on Powerful Business Writing. It was one of the best seminars I have ever attended. At the seminar she let us preview a copy of the book and I just bought one for myself. This book will help you write letters for any occasion, personal or business, and it is so easy. You just fill in the blanks of the templates and wah-la...a very well written letter that conveys your intended message to the reader. Everyone really must have this book!
