Newest book review up!

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review. Find out what I thought about The Vanishing Year, just released yesterday, by Kate Moretti. Here’s an excerpt of my review:

Author Kate Moretti’s book will certainly keep readers engaged, if only to find out what Zoe’s past life is all about and how it intersects with the new life she’s built. Unfortunately, the “thriller” portion of the book ends there.

Lying in wait for some magic

Posted on Updated on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! I’m back from my mini hiatus. I was in town and going through my regular routine, but something told me I needed a small break. So I took it.

For those of you working toward a goal — a life’s passion — sometimes we need to take a little time off. Sometimes it’s because we’re waiting for magic to happen, and sometimes it’s because we want to create a little magic of our own. But magic is an illusion, right? Often it’s about hard work and many years of patience and timing. For more on this idea, check out this week’s motivational quote on “A Writer’s Heartbeats”.

It’s the last Monday of the month, which means our writers showcase. Check out what I’ve found for you for September. The pieces include some haiku and a post that holds nothing back — it’s sheer honesty. Read the writing that caught my eye on The Write Edge Writing Workshop.

In the middle of the week I’ll post a brand new book review for you. Find out what I thought about The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti. Come back on Wednesday to The Write Edge Bookshelf to find out what I thought about it!

On Thursday I’ll post the first writing prompts for October, and on Friday I’ll share a new parenting adventure on Growth Chart.

Have a great week, readers!
