Well, this is it–the final stop on my Sketches from the Spanish Mustang Blog Tour. I don’t know if this generated any interest out there, although I certainly hope it did.
Sketches from the Spanish Mustang took nearly a year and half to write, edit and publish. From the first day the idea hatched to the official release tomorrow (although it’s available today), I’ve lived with these characters, questioned them, become angry at them and generally treated them like family. I hope you take a chance to at least read a sample of the novel (which you can do at Amazon.com), and if you like it, buy it…then tell everyone else you know to do the same.
And now, the winner of the autographed copy of Sketches from the Spanish Mustang and the $50 Amazon.com gift card:
Available NOW: a unique story of love, vengeance, death and life. From the author who asked if madness was real comes a look through the eyes of a broken woman with a very unique gift . . . and a curse.
Sketches from the Spanish Mustang
– “With a skill on par with any of the great American novelists, Mr. Wretlind has penned a tale of such emotional and literary depth that it will haunt the reader long after the last page is turned. He has penned a tale filled with rage, sorrow, loss and just a little bit of hope. He has penned a tale that can only be described as a masterpiece.”
– “Wretlind takes readers on a unique journey that rips away the outer layers of people allowing us to stare into their souls where humanity is universal: no matter the genre of writing.”
The Artist has lost far too much in such a short period of time. Her mind is flooded with uncertainty, self-reflection holds no absolution, and she knows her mirror is too difficult to scrutinize. Broken, she hopes to find peace with her one true gift. With a pencil, a sketchbook and a keen eye for the details of the soul, her lines and smudges, curves and tone reveal the stories behind her subjects.
Life emerges on the page—vengeance, salvation, love and death. Within a town forgotten, the Artist’s subjects fight for survival, only to be saved in the sketches of a woman with a gift . . . and a curse.
Remembering is penance.
– “I cannot recommend this or any of Wretlind’s writings more highly. He is a unique American voice and–I do not exaggerate here–a Pulitzer-caliber writer who deserves more recognition.”
– “…a unique and masterful writer…able to use the slightest descriptor to allow the readers to see them in their mind’s eye, to feel the things they feel, their wants and desires, their fears and regrets.”
– “Filled with cutting descriptions, all sharply detailed but fluid, this is very well-written and intelligent, acerbic in tone, and with a nice little twist there at the end.”
