One-week hiatus

Posted on

A very good evening to you, Write Edge readers! Just a quick note that I’m putting The Write Edge on a one-week hiatus to catch up on some reading and writing. I look forward to talking to you all next week!

Take care of each other, and perform an act of kindness for a stranger this week.

New book review now up!

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on the final book in the Beartown trilogy by Fredrik Backman. This book is called The Winners. Here’s the opening to my post:

Two years after the event that tore apart a small Swedish town, residents must contend with prejudices once again. A storm reveals inequities between the town and its fiercest rival, but it also brings home some of the young adults who help it heal again. Author Fredrik Backman takes readers back to Beartown and Hed in the wrenching finale to the Beartown trilogy with a worthy ending in The Winners.

Read the whole review now on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Also, as I’ve been working through my deadlines this week, it’s looking less likely that I’ll have the latest episode of Biblio Breakdown up for you on Friday. Working on a new novel can do that to a girl! 😀 As soon as I have it rescheduled, however, I’ll let you know.

Take care of each other, and perform an act of kindness for a stranger this week, readers. Have a good day!

Getting ready to say goodbye to September…

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! We’re officially into fall, and some chilly temps have started creeping up at the start and end of our days here in Central Illinois. All that as we get ready to say goodbye to September and jump into the last quarter of the year. Can you believe it?

It’s also the last Monday of the month, which means our monthly Writers Showcase. Today I’m only sharing two stories — one fiction, one nonfiction — because they’re both long. However, they’re both so good that I thought it made sense to let you concentrate on those instead of our usual four. Find them now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop.

Fredrik Backman has a new book release this week, and on Wednesday I’ll share my thoughts on the last book in his Beartown trilogy. Find out in the middle of the week what I thought of The Winners. You can read my review on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Finally, for Friday, my goal is to have a new episode of Biblio Breakdown posted for you, but I also have a couple of other big deadlines looming this week. Let’s see how the week goes. I’m also aiming to post my latest Growth Chart with my parenting adventures for you. Fingers crossed I get one (or both!) done this week. We’ll find out together!

In the meantime, take care of each other and perform an act of kindness for a stranger this week.

Have a good one, readers!
