On Wednesday I’ll share my latest book review for you. This week I’ll post my thoughts on Fragments of the Lost by Megan Miranda. Come back in the middle of the week to The Write Edge Bookshelf for that review!

This Thursday you’ll find out what prompt I’m choosing for next week’s short fiction, and although I won’t be posting a new Growth Chart at the end of this week be sure to check out the special holiday-themed Growth Chart next week.

Have a great week, readers!
