If people see me, would they be interested in my book due to my speech pediment? Do you understand what I mean?

if your book is a success, no one is going to mind if you have a speech problem... look at michael j. fox... he has much more than just trouble speaking, but he's not only a much respected talk show guest, he's still acting!...
ALL 6 e-book collections of my work are FREE...email me with "want free books" in subject line and include a message.

I agree with Maia. Michael is making a huge comback. I'm waiting for the next Back to the Future. :)

Issac, don't start taking other people's threads. You have never stated on the forum that you want to be a writer. You have only stated you want someone to write for you. There is a huge difference.


It was only a question.
