Hello, Write Edge readers! It’s the second Thursday of this quarter, and I’ve posted my second installment of Thursday R.E.A.D.s. Today I share my thoughts on how I viewed The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth as an editor. Here’s an excerpt:
As a reader, I’m as much a fan of the plot twist as the next person. As an editor, I scrutinize these twists. I want them to make sense, because when a book requires as much emotional investment as this book does, that twist shouldn’t leave the reader feeling like they’ve just been walloped in the head by a 50-pound bag.

Wash your hands no matter who you are!

Have a great night!
Happy Friday, Write Edge readers! First, a post that’s a week late but is finally done. I’ve finally gotten the latest episode of Biblio Breakdown online. Tech is always a beast until it works wonders. Honestly, I still find myself amazed by it all.
In this latest episode, I talk about how to be audacious in your writing within the context of The Nature of Fragile Things by Susan Meissner, my first (and so far only) 5-star read for 2021. Check it out on my author website now, and be sure to share with your writing friends!
And now for our regular “programming.” It’s Insta Friday! Check out what I’m currently reading in addition to what I’ll be reviewing next week. Also, get a peek at my new desk — yes, it’s finally assembled. 😀 Find these and other posts on Instagram with my handle, @EktaRGarg. Follow and like the posts!
Wear a mask; stay socially distant. Wash your hands; find out about the vaccine.
Be kind to a stranger today.
Have a wonderful day and weekend, readers!
