Cover reveal tomorrow!!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’m thrilled about the cover reveal tomorrow for The Truth About Elves. You’ll get to see the gorgeous front of my book, the one that made my mother cry happy tears. Less than 24 hours to go!

Also, if you’re a writer or know a writer who would like to attend a free workshop, I’m presenting one this week through the library on the topic of theme and how to go about choosing one and working on one. You can sign up for that here.

In the meantime, we’re moving ahead with our regular content here on The Write Edge. First up, this week’s short fiction. I found the prompt this morning and let my brain noodle over it all day. As I worked on this story, my heart lifted — I could feel that magic of storytelling flow through my fingers as I typed. I hope you enjoy this story as much as I did. Here’s an excerpt:

Keira blinked; then she blinked again. And again. And again. Suddenly, she couldn’t see and blinked even harder. That’s when she realized tears clouded her eyes, and she kept blinking.


Read the whole story now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop!

Tomorrow, as I said, I’ll reveal the cover to my first ever book-length work. It releases from Atmosphere Press in a little more than a month, but you’ll be able to pre-order it well before then. Come back tomorrow to see it and get details on pre-orders!

On Wednesday, I’ll share my latest book review. This week I’ll let you know what I thought of My Sweet Girl by Amanda Jayatissa. Keep an eye out for the post in the middle of the week on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Then on Thursday we go back to the Bookshelf for my newest installment of Thursday R.E.A.D.s. This week I share my thoughts on The Other Black Girl by Zakiya Dalila Harris as an Author myself.

Lastly, on Friday, Instagram posts! I’ll share what’s going on in my corner of the writing world as well as my non-writing/editing life. Check out older posts with my handle, @EktaRGarg, or take a peek at the thumbnails here on the home page of The Write Edge.
