It has been a good week or two for Mended Wings. A few days ago, I received notice of a review by Kirkus Reviews. You can read the complete review on the Review page of this website. Kirkus Reviews is a well known, literary review publication, and reviews by Kirkus are sought after by authors of all stripes. The review had many positive comments and a few criticisms as well. That would be what I would hope for. One comment was that there was enough information about brain injury that parts of the book seemed like an educational pamphlet. I did want my readers to have sufficient information about traumatic brain injury that they would appreciate what the main character was going through in her life. Maybe they will learn a little in the process!
The second exposure for Mended Wings came in the March, 2017 issue of the St. Louis Publisher’s Association News and Views. Each month one book is featured in “The Book Corner”. Mended Wings was the featured book in the March publication. The newsletter can be viewed online at www.SLPAnews.03.17.pdf.
