Latest book review posted!

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers, and happy Thanksgiving Eve (is that a thing? I feel like it should be.) I’ve posted a new book review for you. Today you find out what I thought about Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty, a book from Disney’s Hyperion publishing line. Here’s an excerpt of my review:

Author Robert Beatty captures the essence of life in a Southern state to a T. His delightful, but prudent, use of Southern language at just the right times contributes to pinning the scene to its setting. Readers will definitely sense the world of Asheville without feeling like they’re being inundated with tropes about the area.

To give thanks and share the deepest self

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! It is the week to give thanks, which often happens with the people who know us well. I’ll be doing the same, but I’ve also spent a lot of time in preparation for our vacation by spending extra time in front of my computer. How can I not? After all, writing is sharing a deep part of myself, which is what I strive to do here week after week. For more on this, check out today’s motivational quote on “A Writer’s Heartbeats” and try to reach deep down to your truest self in your own life’s passions.

I’ve posted today’s short story, and I went back to a writing zone I haven’t entered in a long time. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and I hope you sense that. Here’s an excerpt:

In tears she ran out of the party hall, looked up at a night sky full of stars and whispered, “When is the real love of my love going to show up? Someone who loves me for me?”

A thousand miles away, in another state, another time zone, at a different Sweet Sixteen party, he heard the whisper in his ear.

Tomorrow I’ll share with you a new book review of Two for the Road and also More from the Road; you’ll also get to read the blurb for Two for the Holidays. All that on Prairie Sky Publishing tomorrow!

On Wednesday you get a new book review. This week I let you know what I thought of Serafina and the Black Cloak by Robert Beatty. That’s coming up on The Write Edge Bookshelf.

No writing prompts this Thursday in preparation for next week’s writer’s showcase, but you will get a brand new set of parenting adventures on Friday on Growth Chart.

Have a great week, readers, and enjoy your time with your family and friends!
