Tinyman for President - Miriam Martincic


I know Miriam Martinic only via the work she has done for a friend of mine and for my company, plus maybe a half-dozen short e-mails. Despite this limited sample set, I have no problem rating Miriam's work: she's a 5-Star All-Star without question. In fact, given a mere 5-star rating system, I'd have to say that Miriam qualifies for at least 6 or 7 stars. Yes, she's that good. Miriam produces the type of work that makes the untalented (like myself) think: "Wow, how does she do that?" and "Man, I sure wish I could something even half as good." It would be easy to drain a thesaurus of all its superlatives trying to describe how exquisite Miriam's work is, but instead I will simply say this: "Thank you, Miriam, for what you did for "Tinyman for President": your book cover made this book irresistible and compelling, and what more could a publisher ask for? Thanks, again."
