He’s an interesting and incredibly kind person whose work in special education and concern for the environment is impressive. I was delighted to discover that he also supports other self-published authors by writing reviews, etc.
Having had some communication with him, and currently reading WhipEye (review to be posted soon), I not-so-humbly believe he certainly deserves this Grant.
Please be so kind as to read his guest author post on The Story Reading Ape’s site, shared below, to learn more about Geoff and to vote for him to receive this Grant. Share it with those you know who support such good endeavours!
Thank you! 😀 😀 😀
