Reviews for The Wingspan of Severed Hands

Reviews are popping up for The Wingspan of Severed Hands on Goodreads, Amazon, and Youtube. They are really positive! Wingspan isn’t an easy read, and I wasn’t sure how people would respond. Was I asking too much from readers? So far, the feedback says some readers felt the push, but for most people, the story and style grabbed and amazed them.

I’m a vicious critic, inclined to forget the good stuff. Thus, I’ve collected links to reviews and videos. Here’s what people are saying about The Wingspan of Severed Hands!

Hey! Did you make it all the way to the bottom of this post? Cool. I hope that means you clicked the links, because these reviewers have been generous with me, with their words, and with the time they’ve spent reading and sharing on social media.

I’m moved by the responses to The Wingspan of Severed Hands, and delighted to meet so many lovely, intelligent people through the review process. Even though we write in isolation, our words remain dead if they never become part of a conversation with readers.

Thanks for talking with me.
