It came up in a meeting recently that someone needed a way to convert PDF into Word. Bill Collier (a regular at our Friday 9:30 meeting) sent me a link to this website that he said he has used with great success: https://www.onlineocr.net/ I hope it's of help to anyone out there who needs it.

My debut novel was release in February of 2020. The book tour was cut short due to the pandemic, but I have been zooming with book clubs all year. It's been a wonderful experience. You can check out the official reviews (which have been quite good) and read more about it on my website at http://aprildavila.com I've been told it makes excellent quarantine reading.
