MY ORIGINAL AGREEMENT WITH MACHDO WAS TO COMPLETE (5) BOOKS; BUT THE WORK MACHUDO HAS DONE FOR ME HAS SO VASTLY EXCEEDED MY HIGHEST HOPES & EXPECTATIONS. THAT I DECIDED TO PAY HIM THE FULL $3000 FOR THE FIRST (3) BOOKS; AND $1000 FOR BOOKS (4); (5) & BOOK (6) GOING FORWARD. THE JOB TOOK LONGER THAN I EXPECTEDK BUT THAT WAS BECAUSE OF MY MANY FINE TUNING LAST MINUTE CHANGES. MACHUDO HAS THE PATIENCE OF MOTHER TERESA; AND THE CREATIVE, PERFECTIONIST ARTISTIC BRILLIANCE OF LEONARDO DA VINCI. THE LAYOUT & EVERY ASPECT OF (3) BOOKS WITH A TOTAL OF OVER (2000) PAGES & (550) COLOR IMAGES; WAS IMPOSSIBLE TO IMRPOVE UPON. PLEASE LOOK AT HIS FINISHED WORK NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH INGRAM SPARK. THE WORK ON THESE (3) BOOKS IS NOW OVER 99% PERCENT FINISHED; THERE ARE A FEW MINOR DETAILS REMAINING; BUT I DIDN'T WANT MACHUDO ; WHO HAS A LOVELY WIFE AND (11) YEAR OLD DAUGHTER; TO WAIT ANY LONGER DURING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON FOR PAYMENT. MY TRUST IN MACHUDO'S BEST PRACTICES, BEST EFFORT & INEGRITY; IS ABSOLUTE & TOTAL; BECAUSE HE HAS PROVEN IT TO ME IN OVER 2,000 PAGES OF IMMACULATE FINISHED WORK. AND THAT'S JUST A SNIPPET OF WHAT HE'S DONE FOR ME. MY FASHION PROFESSIONAL WIFE WILL BE GETTING HOLIDAY GIFTS FOR MACHUDO'S WIFE & DAUGHTER AS A TOKE OF OUR DEEP ADMIRATION FOR HIME; WE LIVE IN EAST NORTPORT ON THE NORTH SHORE OF LONG ISLAND' IN NEW YORK; AND MACHUDO; A NATIVE OF INDIA; WITH HIS EQUALLY TALENTED BROTHER; LIVES IN TH COSMOPOLITAN EXPATRAIE CAPITAL OF OMAN, IN THE ARABIAN PENINSULA. MACHUDO IS 12,000 MILES AWAY FROM ME; WE COMMUNICATE SEVERAL TIME A DAY. 99 DESIGNS MADE THIS POSSIBLE. DAY; BEST, RICHARD E. GLICK (860) 218-4668 . PLEASE FEEL FREE TO PRINT THIS TESTIMONIAL REVIEW IN ANY & ALL 99 DESIGNS PROMOTIONAL FORMATS. NOTHIG I'VE WRITTEN BECASUE I'M BEING NICE; BUT BECAUSE I AM AT A LOSS FOR WORDS TO DESCRIBE WHAT IS TRUE. SHAKESPEARE DIDN'T HAVE MACHUDO. I DID
