One of the largest online book communities (onlinebookclub.org) finished its review of On Swift Wings yesterday. The review is excellent, but their keen-eyed reviewer was able to identify a dozen typos in the book and by rule had to deduct a star for that. The three star (out of four) review provides the most detailed review summary I’ve received thus far and some glowing praise.
The descriptions of the unknown lands were very vivid. I can still picture some of the scenes in my mind very clearly, days after completing the book.
I truly appreciated the writing style of the book. It has its own unique tone and the author’s use of language was skilled and enjoyable.
Overall, for me, this story was a pleasure to read. The fantasy aspects were engaging and kept me wanting to find out what would happen next. The social commentary was done with a clear and thoughtful voice. It was easy to follow.
I recommend this book to those that enjoy considering the state of the world, societies and how we all fit together. Readers who relish stories of different people in foreign lands will also appreciate the novel.Snowflake for OnlineBookClub.org
Per the reviewer’s notes, I’m preparing the revision with my formatter, Indie Publishing Group, a new version should be available in the next couple days. The reviewer also would have liked to know more about some of the loose ends regarding other characters, but I intentionally kept some things vague to allow the reader to imagine for themselves.
Hopefully these changes will be enough to earn that coveted fourth star.
The other cool news is I’ve completed a redesign and relaunched my webpage right here at https://www.brettwiens.com. The new page features the book trailer more prominently, adds a review format to the front page, and more links to retailers and review sites. I will be adding details from the most recent review shortly.
Furthermore, you can now choose to be added to my mailing list. I promise to use it only sparingly to announce either new book releases or significant deals.
