Recommended Reads

       I have read many self published books that I find quite enjoyable and great reads. These, however, are those books that I feel showcase the very best of Self-publishing in craft and professionalism and that I would rate at 5 stars for at least one or more of the books in the series. 

         If you want some specific suggestions, don't hesitate to email me and ask for some books to try. If you want to see what other books I have read or am reading, be sure to look me up on Goodreads where you can find an up-to-date list of what I have read, and am reading, both self and traditionally published. You can find me there under the name J.E. Purrazzi.
