  1. Alison,
    Is there a way we could work together to let the world know about my book? I’ve purchased over 1,000 properties since 1996. My autobiographical tale reads like a novel. It is NOT a “how to” book. More importantly, the story tells of how this high school graduate stumbled upon the revelations of life, money and sprituality on his quest for financial freedom. Laug, cry and be inspired!

    (54) 5 Star reveiws at…all reviews of the highest mark! Get the FIRST 100 PAGES FREE at If you’re still interested I will send you the book.

    Let me know what you think…

    Allison. You and your work are quite impressive. As a parent of an artist, I appreciate what I’m seeing of your work all the more.

    We’ll see about a 2011 when the time comes, but the 2016 reunion is really not far away.
    Best wishes and regards,

  3. About time! Someone with some information on this. You’d think considering how popular Comic Book Adaptations are nowadays, some information would actually be pretty easy to find. Apparently not. Anyway, thanks for this! I appreciate it!

  4. Cool Article! My spouse and i had been simply just debating that there’s a whole lot absolutely wrong details at this matter and also you precisely replaced the belief. Many thanks for a marvelous contribute.
