Hello, Write Edge readers! I know, I know, once again I’ve left everyone hanging. I’ve had several afternoon meetings that came up without forewarning that took out writing/reading hours for me. As I’ve gone through these meetings and other tasks that have taken time away from The Write Edge, I’ve done a lot of thinking about how to rearrange my day so I can definitely make time for the blog. I’m not going anywhere, don’t worry about that. But sometimes I have to rejig my schedule a little to make it all work.
I think I have something in place. For now, I’m sharing some of this week’s content with you so we can get back on track (sort of!) First, my latest book review. This week I share my thoughts on the new release Such Big Dreams by debut author Reema Patel. Here’s the opening to my post:
A young woman struggling to survive is offered an opportunity to start fresh. As she navigates what such an offer might mean, she deals with office politics and the utter ignorance many people have about her station in life. Debut author Reema Patel gives readers a story lush with details but slightly sluggish in plot in her book Such Big Dreams.
And on the Bookshelf this month is the latest Thursday R.E.A.D.s. This month we’re diving deeper into Storm Rising by Chris Hauty. Check out all of this month’s installments so far here on The Write Edge Bookshelf!
Stay safe, do good, and look out for each other, readers!

Hello, Write Edge readers! As promised, I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on debut author Lis Angus’s book Not Your Child. Here’s the opening to my post:
A single mother finds herself in the middle of every parent’s nightmare when her child disappears. As she works with local police to find her daughter, she discovers troubling truths about herself and tries to reconcile them with memory. Debut author Lis Angus offers readers a strong plot with only a few minor hitches in her first book Not Your Child.
Take care of each other and then yourselves, readers!

Hello, Write Edge readers! My deepest, deepest apologies for being MIA recently. I’ve been knee-deep in deadlines — some work related, some self-imposed — and there are, unfortunately, only so many hours in the day. I guess I could give up sleeping, but I don’t think anyone wants to see the loopy version of me on here. Writing is hard enough as it is! 😀
I am back, however, and fully intend to keep to the regular schedule. Of course, that doesn’t mean the deadlines have gone away, but it’s important to me to stay in touch here with all of you. So for the moment, I’m ignoring the deadlines (only for a few minutes, don’t worry) and talking to you again.
It’s the last Monday of the month, which means time for our writers’ showcase. I’m always blown away by the writing that I share here. So much talent out there! It’s encouraging and a little intimidating — but mostly encouraging — all at the same time. Find out what pieces really touched my heart by going now to The Write Edge Writing Workshop!
In the middle of the week, I’ll share a brand new book review with you. Last week saw the release of Not Your Child by Lis Angus. Come back on Wednesday to find out what I thought about this new thriller. You’ll get that review on The Write Edge Bookshelf!
And the end of this week is going to be a busy one. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that I’ll be able to post new Instagram posts, a new Growth Chart, and a new Biblio Breakdown on Friday. I’ll keep you posted on all of it.
Thanks for your patience and understanding, readers! Remember to take care of each other and then yourselves.
Have a wonderful day and week!
