Indies Today – Five-Stars

I love reading reviews. Especially when a reader seems to have really connected with my writing, but even when they didn’t. I’ve been fortunate that the vast majority of the reviews I’ve read so far have been positive, or, where more constructive in nature, they have at least reflected some of the comments that I had expected to read. I don’t think that any review has shocked me too much, but it is great to see people with honest feedback.

I got a quicker-than-expected review from Indies Today – and my book is currently on their front page!

This is one of my favourite reviews as the reader really seemed to have connected with the style, the humour, and the overall narrative. This is the kind of fuel that helps push me to keep going, and I appreciate the review from Nicky Flowers at Indies Today. I’m so thankful for everybody who has read, is reading, or will read my book, and even more so those who leave reviews!

Thank you all so much. I’m making progress on my next, related project, and with Audacity, I hope that within a couple weeks here I’ll be able to draw back the veil of secrecy and share it with the world.

My favourite aspect of this novel was the use of humour and satire to draw attention to important social issues.

Each chapter has a lesson that would resonate with any reader.

The thoughts raised question our ideas of freedom, morality, accuracy in history and even equality through political policy.

I also particularly enjoyed the use of vivid imagery.

– There was no part of this novel that I disliked as I found it to be an exceptional read.

I found the novel to be particularly impactful as the universality of the subjects seen in the novel suggest that it can be enjoyed by anyone.

First Full Review

On Swift Wings is being featured this week by Book by Book Publicity at readerviews.com. This is the first formal review by somebody who doesn’t know me and it is awesome. Scarcely can I contain my excitement. If you’ve been considering reading the book, hopefully this will put you over the edge.

I’m thrilled with the review. Check it out here: reviewwiensonswiftwings.

A few highlights:

The author does an exceptional job of rewriting the political satire through the eyes of Cygnus, a man who finds himself following in similar steps of Gulliver.

His journey makes for a compelling read.

I think that “On Swift Wings: The Travails of Cygnus,” by Brett M. Wiens would be a great selection for readers’ groups and even required reading for a class. Interesting discussions are guaranteed to follow. I look forward to reading future works by this talented author.

Reader Views has also asked for an interview that will be posted sometime this week, and will be featured in their newsletter on Monday, January 6, 2020.

Thank you Paige Lovitt and Reader Views!

(Next Week I’m going to post a 2019 year in review along with some pictures of people holding the book. If you’d like to be included, let me know here or send me a picture with On Swift Wings by email or Facebook at BW.Literature

Thanks for reading! May your world always grow.
