The Reviews Are In!!!

I have already begun receiving reviews from those who ordered my book. I thought I would share one of those comments with you here:

Dear Maxine,I just wanted to drop you a few lines to let you know that I have received my books. Just in time for Mother's Day, and my mom LOVED it! As for me, I can't wait to start reading it. It is more than what I was expecting, it's more than Flo's story, it's the entire Ballard family, I love it, I love it. I have never seen photos of your parents Lurlee and Jesse, or the rest of the sisters and brothers. It's a loving tribute to the whole family, and that's what I love about it. Thank you so much Maxine. I'll treasure it forever. Is there anything that you would like the fans to help you with? Promotion of the book, etc? Just let us know!Wonderful job! Thanks again,with much love and respect,Chris Martinez and family.

I agree also with the review. I just finished the book. I trully enjoyed it. It made me laugh at times, and it also made me so sad. I cannot imagine the pain Miss Maxine must have felt watching her beloved sister on a coffin, with black and blues on her legs, after having had a fight with Thomas Chapman just a week before her untimely death. Just terrible! The book also made me appreciate my own family more. The Ballards were a strong family, no matter how tough life became for them, they remained united. I am so glad that Miss Maxine shared her story with us. The book is worth every penny.
Miss Maxine, two thumbs UP girl!

The book is available exclusively on my website - www.maxineballard.com

I have created a one-time limited edition, so the book is in limited release and cannot be found in stores. I am excited to know that the love of Flo's fans extends all the way to the Phillipines! My goodness - Flo would be so happy to know that!

And Florence Ballard is a diva here in The Philippines!

Maxine,

The love of Flo's fans for her and you, and your whole family is deep, true, and forever, and it spans world wide across many generations. You, Blondie and Milton Jenkins made history. Your husband is the main reason we had The Supremes! And Flo was the first and the very BEST Supreme!

Maxine! I absolutely adore Florence, I'd have to say I am her biggest fan although I am young, I appreciate Florence and it breaks my heart knowing that Michelle, Nicole, and Lisa grew up without their mother, it angers me that it ended the way it did, but God does indeed right every wrong. True, its sad that its taken 41 years for it to be, but its all in due time.

Also, I believe that when a movie is made that Faith Evans should play Florence. NO ONE else. True Beyonce is talented, but she is too much in comparison to Ross, and that is not the view fans need to get. I think Kelly Rowland to play Mary Wilson, she played a similar role in her group as Mary did, ok I knoe may be talking too much, but I can't explain how close I feel to this subject, I think about how to get Florence's story to the masses.
