New book review up!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! In this bizarre era of COVID-19 (oh, how I wish I could say it was an April Fool’s joke,) I’ve got another book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on Please See Us by Caitlin Mullen. Here’s the opening to my review:

Two young women make an awful discovery and must decide whether they should speak up or stay quiet. Their personal challenges and the ill fate of the city where they live make their choice that much harder. If they speak up, they might expose the unsavory parts of their lives to the world. If they do nothing, people may die. Author Caitlin Mullen presents readers with the melancholic backdrop of a failing Atlantic City in her overlong novel Please See Us.

Read the whole review now on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

(If you haven’t gotten kicked off the internet, that is! :D)

Stay safe, stay healthy, and wash your hands, readers!

From March into April…

Good morning, Write Edge readers! Social distancing, shelter-in-place, and sincere efforts to restrain COVID-19 continue. I hope you’re all doing your part to contribute to flattening the curve. It’s hard, sure, but think about it: the entire world is in this together. Literally. So you’re not alone, even if you are.

To that end, a little motivation goes a long way. Here’s this week’s motivational quote, reminding us that even the hardest of times can be productive.

“A writer who waits for ideal conditions under which to work will die without putting a word on paper.”—E.B. White

Next, it’s the last Monday of the month, which means our writers’ showcase. I’m sharing some poetry, some haunting stories, and a nonfiction article published a month ago that seems to fit our current times more than anyone could have imagined. Find all of these pieces now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

In the middle of the week, I’ll post a new book review. This Wednesday you’ll find out what I thought of Please See Us by Caitlin Mullen. Come back for that review on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

On Friday, we go back to new Instagram pics. Given the interesting times we’re living in, I honestly don’t know yet what I’m going to post. I guess we’ll all find out together, won’t we? 😀

Stay safe, readers, wash your hands, and chins up. We CAN get through this if we all contribute to the health of the world at large.

Have a great day!
