Novel in Progress

Last full week of July!

Posted on

Good evening, Write Edge readers! We’re in the last full week of July. Once August hits, we all start gearing up for school routines and the fall. While the summer has been a wonderfully laid-back time, I’ll admit, I’m ready for our schedule to be more regular once again.

In the meantime, I have new content for you! First, today is the last Monday of the month. That means it’s our monthly writers’ showcase. I love doing these. It’s always such a great lesson in the craft when I read the work of others. Find out what I’ve picked for you to read this month by going now to The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

On Wednesday I’ll share a new book review with you. This week I’m reading the recent release Peril at the Exposition by Nev March. It’s the sequel to Murder in Old Bombay, which I discovered on vacation. I fell in love with the story of Jim Agnihotri, amateur detective, and the Framji family, so when I saw that Nev March had a sequel I couldn’t wait to dive in. Find out whether the second book measures up to the first in the middle of the week on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Then, on Friday, it’s a new Growth Chart and (hopefully) Instagram photos. My goal is also to have the newest episode of up on that day too. I’ll keep you posted on whether that works out for this week (I’ve got a lot of reading, writing, and revising to do before then!)

Stay hydrated, take care of each other, and do a good deed this week, readers!


Exciting book news!

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I have some wonderful news to share to start this week: I’ve signed the contract for my second book with Atmosphere Press! I can’t wait for my original fairy tale to reach all of you. I’ll share more details as they become available, but needless to say I’m thrilled!

In the meantime, I have our regular content for you here on The Write Edge. First up is this week’s short story. I wrote a piece of micro fiction for this week’s post, so I won’t share an excerpt, but it was great to challenge myself with it. Check out the new story on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

On Wednesday I’ll share my review of the book I previewed on Friday on Instagram. Find out what I thought of Never Coming Home by Kate M. Williams. You’ll get that review on The Write Edge Bookshelf in the middle of the week.

This Friday, because it’s the last Friday of the month, I’ll post my latest Growth Chart with my parenting adventures for you. See what’s going on in our house at the end of this week on Growth Chart!

Stay hydrated, take care of each other, and do good today. Have a fantastic week, readers!
