"Spoonfuls of Inspiring & supportive verse from Chicken Soup for the Soul series contributing author, Kim Conrad."  - Mike Daniels, past President Colorado Independent Publishers Association and author of Living, Loving and Loathing
 “I will be sure to post a starred review on Amazon.
Just from a first round reading of your verses, I could tell that the words and messages conveyed would be of great value to my family and friends. They've all experienced recent traumas: serious illness, loss of loved ones, career disruptions, etc.
Sometimes daily affirmations help - but something like Vice Versa Versa comes along, and offers a refreshing twist on some of the "big questions" we all face. I know I will go over many of the verses again myself - they resonate with me on many levels and I find that invigorating, encouraging, and empowering - and I would expect the same reactions from my loved ones.”
