Echoes of Praise for Echolocation

ECHOLOCATION, Myfanwy Collins’s debut novel, comes out next month from Engine Books, and we’re ready to celebrate!

Look after the jump for some lovely words from a fellow author, a rave first review, and information about appearances at AWP and numerous other readings!

Glorified Love Letters declares “Echolocation is a perfect little book about reality hitting hard. It’s about necessary roughness and begrudging tenderness, and it swallows one up while reading. I certainly look forward to experiencing more of Myfanwy Collins’ work.”

If you’d like to see more of Myfanwy’s work, head over to Girlfriends Book Club to read an excerpt and enter to win your own copy! In her touching post, fellow author Ellen Meister says:

Girlfriends and books. Outside of my family, they’re two of the most important things in my life.

And so I’m thrilled today to blog about a girlfriend writer named Myfanwy Collins. We met early in my journey as a novelist, and I knew from the start I had hit the friendship lottery. Myf is a generous friend with a tender heart. She is also, I’m proud to say, one of the most gifted writers I know. Her stunning prose packs so much emotional resonance that every time I read one of Myf’s pieces I get the wind  knocked right out of me. She’s that good.

If all of this praise has made you curious about Myfanwy’s work, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to see her in person!
