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!

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!

The last full week of February!
Good evening, Write Edge readers! It’s the last full week of the month — can you believe it? I don’t know about you, but these first several weeks of 2023 have raced by.
I didn’t get a chance to post my short story for last week, which means a bonus for you all this week: two stories for the price of one! Last week’s theme, according to the new challenges I’ve set for myself this year, was a story in second person. This week’s is a story that includes something in three. Go now to The Write Edge Writing Workshop to read both stories (this week’s will appear first; then keep scrolling or click on the link to go to last week’s.)
I also didn’t get a chance to preview this week’s book to be reviewed, but on Wednesday I’m going to share my thoughts on the new release Imposter Syndrome and Other Confessions of Alejandra Kim by Patricia Park. Come back in the middle of the week for that review on The Write Edge Bookshelf!
At the end of the week, of course, it’ll be new Instagram posts. Find out what else I’m reading, and see other tidbits from my writing and non-writing time. See previous posts with my handle, @EktaRGarg. You can also see them on my Facebook author page!
Also, reviews continue to come in for In the Heart of the Linden Wood, and I’m so proud of the fact that this original fairy tale for grownups is slowly and steadily making its way in the world. Click here to read some of the reviews and also to order your own signed copy directly from me now!
Have a wonderful week, readers!
