NEW RELEASE: Sketches from the Spanish Mustang
by Benjamin X. Wretlind

With the release of Castles: A Fictional Memoir of a Girl with Scissors, Colorado Springs author Benjamin X. Wretlind asked what madness really was. Now, with Sketches from the Spanish Mustang, Wretlind asks if we can learn to see with broken eyes.

In this literary exploration of the lives of seven people in the mining town of Cripple Creek, Colorado, a woman must come to grips with the failings that cost the lives of her husband and child. Bestselling author Michael K. Rose says: "Mr. Wretlind has penned a tale of such emotional and literary depth it will haunt the reader long after the last page is turned."

With a pencil, a sketchbook and a keen eye for the details of the soul, the woman's lines and smudges, curves and tone reveal the stories behind her subjects. Life emerges on the page — vengeance, salvation, love and death. The artist's subjects fight for survival, only to be saved in the sketches of a woman with a gift . . . and a curse.

International Book Award winner Gregory G. Allen calls the book 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."

Sketches from the Spanish Mustang is available now at all major online retailers for $14.95. It is also being presented in an electronic format (e.g. Kindle, nook) for $5.95.
