Hey there Dragno,
Well, you certainly have free speech here. But to be honest, I have no idea what you’re trying to say. What logo? What are you talking about? This is just a book presentation.

I read this book and is very good, now looking forward to getting my Kindle in the mail so that I can download his debut collection of short stories “Drown”. Very innovative narrative style. The book (The Wondrous…) is a roller coaster, it has everything, laughs, horror (Trujillato vignettes), etc. I strongly recommend it. Ramiro
