Editorial Reviews


-Protagonist Samantha or Sam is sexual and tough at the same time. She makes enough money as a stripper at J's Gentlemen's Quarters. Yet we see the cogent side of her as she does not plan to be a stripper for long and is working on building her photography business. Ironically, she uses photography as one of her seduction tools to persuade women to come to her place. Sasha also has issues of her own, but together these women try to heal each other, making Wounded a beautiful, emotionally raw story.
-As a reader who loves a positive ending, it is enough for me. On the whole, the book particularly excels at depicting complicated and realistic characters, making it a worthwhile read.
-Burgess states in an epilogue that he writes books to "move people emotionally and help to 
change the world for the better." Awkwardly written though it sometimes is, his heartfelt, 
emotionally powerful tale might just do that. **Blue Ink Review
-Where it counts, though, he never settles for the quick solution. He 
knows there are no easy epiphanies in real life, and he lets his initially unlikeable protagonist 
grow up and change without losing her honesty and drive. **Blue Ink Review
-The book is also well-edited, and Burgess has spent time with the cover to attract the right audience, which explains the good response to this book online. **Self-Publishing Review
-The main thing is that Burgess' characters are rounded with thoughts, dialogue and actions - and reactions of their own, unmistakable and sure, which makes his work stand out in the indie market today as a thoughtful, crafted writer. **Self-Publishing Review
