Book review up! (And a modified summer schedule)

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers. As you can see, I didn’t post anything on Monday. My current writing/editing schedule is keeping me busy enough that I think it’s best if I go to a modified schedule for the rest of the summer. I’ll post book reviews and Instagram posts, as well as any news about my own book coming out later this year (!!), but any original writing I do for The Write Edge Writing Workshop will have to wait.

I do, however, have a new book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on The Other Passenger by Louise Candlish. Here’s the opening to my post:

A man becomes a person of interest when his friend goes missing. He tries to balance his secrets with his own suspicions of what happened but gets the sense that a bigger game is at play. Author Louise Candlish takes just a touch too long to ramp up the mystery but keeps it rolling once it gets moving in her latest book The Other Passenger.

Book review now up!

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Today I share my thoughts on the new YA novel Where It All Lands by debut author Jennie Wexler. Here’s the opening to my post:

A trio of teens navigate young love and personal challenges while trying to figure out how to balance their friendships with one another. Just as the culmination of their story is revealed, a coin toss changes the entire scenario. Author Jennie Wexler makes the subject of first love sweet and refreshing while navigating her plot in the most subtle yet dynamic of ways in her excellent debut novel Where It All Lands.

It feels like a million years ago…

Posted on Updated on

Good evening, Write Edge readers! It definitely feels like a million years ago since I’ve posted regularly. So long ago, in fact, that even when I post things I forget to tell you all. For example, on Friday I posted new photos to Instagram but forgot to tell you all here! I wonder if it’s just the relaxed vibe of summer that’s making me so laid back or whether it’s all the books clamoring for my attention (including my own that is undergoing production!!)

In any case, yes, there were new Instagram photos to check out from last week. I’ve also got my latest short story for you, just posted. Here’s an excerpt:

He dug his fists deeper into his pockets just as his foot hit another tree root and he tripped again. This time the expletive that sprung from his lips hung in the air for a moment, charging the atmosphere around him with his frustration.

On Wednesday, I’ll share a new book review with you. I recently finished the new release Where It All Lands by YA author Jennie Wexler. Come back in the middle of the week to find out what I thought about this book. My review will be up on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Finally, at the end of the week, more Instagram pictures, and I promise this time I won’t forget to let you all know they’re up. Find out what I’m reading for next week in my #bookreviewpreview and what else is going on in my world both writing and non-writing related.
