Back at my computer again!
Hello, Write Edge readers! I lost a whole week last week due to being sick and a host of things demanding my attention (which are harder to do when you’re not feeling well.) I’m feeling about 95 percent better, though, so I’m back at my computer again — finally!
I’ve posted my newest short fiction for you. Here’s a quick excerpt:
The outsiders found us charming; quaint. One outsider publication said we “reminded visitors of a simpler time that emphasized the importance of the family and community unit.” After that article, a few outsiders moved to the village. They decided they wanted to “get back to basics,” whatever that meant.

In the last two weeks, I’ve promised you two book reviews and wasn’t able to post either of them. Now I’m left with the dilemma of what review to post this Wednesday. I’ll be mulling that tomorrow, and you’ll get to see the answer in the middle of the week. But I’ll do my level best to at least one to you this week.
Speaking of books, if you haven’t gotten your copy yet of In the Heart of the Linden Wood, you can order an autographed copy from my author website. You can also enter the Goodreads giveaway for a Kindle copy — the giveaway runs for one more week. Enter now, and be sure to tell everyone you know to enter too!
On Friday it’s back to Instagram and what I’ve been up to in my writing and non-writing life. I hope to have some fun photos to share with you then.
It’s so good to be back. Have a great week, readers!

A blustery end to the month!
Good evening, Write Edge readers! Today has been a blustery day with all the excitement of tornados touching down in our area (although, as far as I know, no damage was done and no one was hurt.) The wind and thunderstorm knocked out our wifi, and I’m currently running my computer off the hotspot on my phone. But, again, I’m extremely grateful that that is the only little thing I had to deal with today. We’re safe and sound with the power and water still up and running. Things could be a lot worse.
Still, we march onward! Today is the last Monday of the month, which means our writers’ showcase. There were some poems that caught my eye this month (I know! Me! Poetry!), so I’m sharing those with you along with a piece of micro fiction that made me nod because of how good it was. Check out all of those now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!
This past Friday I previewed the book I’m reviewing for Wednesday. Find out what I thought of the middle grade novel, Momo Arashima Steals the Sword of the Wind by Misa Sugiura. You can read that review in the middle of the week on The Write Edge Bookshelf!
And, of course, on Friday it’s back to Instagram and all of my writing/non-writing posts. Check out previous Insta pics with my handle, @EktaRGarg, or on my Facebook author page.
Finally, I have signed copies of my own book ready and waiting to come to your home — all you have to do is order one for yourself! Read more about In the Heart of the Linden Wood and order your copy here.
Have a fantastic week, readers!

Book review now posted!
Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on Imposter Syndrome and Other Confessions of Alejandra Kim by Patricia Park. Here’s the opening to my post:
A high schooler juggles her multicultural background and a personal tragedy on a daily basis. When she inadvertently gets involved with a microaggression, it feels like everyone is looking at her differently. Through it all, she tries to figure out who she is and who she wants to be. Author Patricia Park debuts in the young adult genre with a novel that is relatable, thoughtful, and insightful in her new book Imposter Syndrome and Other Confessions of Alejandra Kim.

And if you’re a grownup who loved fairy tales and books in that genre as a kid, check out my own new release! In the Heart of the Linden Wood is available now from my author website where you can get your own signed copy. Or you could take your chances in the Goodreads giveaway going on now!
Have a fantastic night, readers!
