  3. “I have known Doug Lance in his capacity as editor-in-chief of eFiction. I am a full-time writer and have been tremendously impressed by his aplomb, drive, and enthusiasm for his job. He has turned eFiction into an interesting on-line magazine for readers and writers alike. Moreover, his energetic work in making the eFiction website a social-media home for readers and writers in such a short time is nothing but astonishing. His promotional and publishing skills have made this eZine a success in a relatively short time. I highly recommend him for most any position that will involve these same skills. Moreover, he is an upstanding young gentleman who deserves to go far in the publishing business. I wish him all the best in all his future endeavors.” April 15, 2012
