Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on A Million Reasons Why by Jessica Strawser. Here’s the opening to my review:

When two women discover they’re half-sisters, they also unearth new information about themselves. As they begin to build a relationship with one another, they see all of their old relationships in new ways. Author Jessica Strawser tugs at heartstrings with her newest novel A Million Reasons Why.

Midpoint of the month

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! Can you believe that this week we’ll hit the midpoint of the month? Neither can I.

Around here, April means spring. That means things are in bloom and there’s a sense of renewal. Of hope. This year, that feeling is more poignant than ever.

In light of that, today’s writing focuses on the season. Instead of fiction, I wrote a bit of poetry (I know, right? Me; poetry.) Here’s the opening stanza to my three-stanza haiku:

The bird swoops downward.

Lands on the branch, stakes a claim.

Spring means a new nest.

In the middle of the week, I’ll share a brand new book review. At the end of March, author Jessica Strawser’s new book A Million Reasons Why came out. Find out what I thought of it on The Write Edge Bookshelf on Wednesday!

And on Friday it’s back to Instagram. Check out where I’ve been, what I’m reading (you’ll get the #bookreviewpreview for next week,) and, possibly, what I’m eating. :> Find that at the end of the week on Instagram. See older posts with my handle, @EktaRGarg, or look for the thumbnails here on the home page of the blog.

Have a wonderful week, readers!

Good morning, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on Ryan R. Campbell’s literary short story collection And Ampersand. Here’s the opening to my post:

A young swimmer gets in the water only to have the race cut short. A camper takes his girlfriend on a romantic trip just before they get caught in a mudslide. A grieving husband tries to make sense of losing his wife to a drunk driver then picks up a drunk hitchhiker. These plots and more fill author Ryan R. Campbell’s debut short story collection And Ampersand.
