COMMON & TIKA ALL I ASK OF YOU IS TO READ THE FIRST 10-15 PAGES

First, I would like to thank Vince, owner of dURDy Work Multi-Media Graphics for designing my movie poster, he did one hell of a job, and I am so glad I stumbled upon him.  He also designed my website header, so be sure to check him out; magnificent work and reasonable prices.

Second, I want to thank my cousin Sherry, owner of Sherry Designs for creating the trailer for me as well.  She did an excellent job with putting it all together… so THANKS FOR BOTH OF YOU!
