Erasing Scars by Dr. James D. Okun MD, Evangelita Goodwell (Book Review #21)

  “Millions of Americans are afflicted with genital herpes with tens of thousands of new cases being reported each year. This ravaging disease afflicts its sufferers with both physical and emotional scarring, and while effective treatments for the physical aspects of the disease have been developed in recent years, relatively scant attention has been given to the emotional trauma associated with the disease. And even less attention has been given to the connection between patients’ stress levels and recurrences of herpes outbreaks.” []

“I am very impressed by how easy it was to work with Jeyran. She was able to review The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators in just a few weeks and did a great job capturing the essence of what I worked to convey in the book.”

C. J. Scarlet – Author of “The Badass Girl’s Guide: Uncommon Strategies to Outwit Predators”

“I am extremely grateful to Jeyran for her skillful and sensitive evaluation of my debut novel, “Burying Leo.” Compared to some of my previously published shorter – and often lighter – pieces, including a variety of memoirs and human interest stories, “Burying Leo” served as a full-length literary vehicle to explore the painful consequences of sexual assault.

Not only was I impressed with Jeyran’s ability to summarize the essence of my novel’s story-line in a precise and eloquent manner. She seemed also very aware of some of the underlying messages embedded in those 300-plus pages holding a kaleidoscope of tragic, amusing, annoying, entertaining, and also possibly (to some readers) offensive paragraphs.

Thank you, Jeyran, for a job well done and for giving me the positive feedback that helps keep me going as a writer.”
