New book review now up!

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted my latest book review for you. Here’s the opening to my thoughts on The Wolf’s Curse by Jessica Vitalis:

When a young boy, cursed by rumor, loses the one person who loves him, he must deal with gossip and suspicion as he tries to figure out a mystery related to his circumstances. Along the way, he befriends another orphan and tries to stay away from the Great White Wolf who is determined to join forces with him. Author Jessica Vitalis makes the seaside town of Bouge-by-the-Sea come to life in sparkling prose and with a fun narrator in her book The Wolf’s Curse.

A week of gratitude

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers! To those of you who live in the United States, a happy Thanksgiving week. I wish all of you time with those who you love most and a few moments this week to reflect on what you most appreciate. Self-care is necessary, and I believe it starts with a little bit of gratitude for what you have in life. So do take a little time out to think about those things and people.

I have my short fiction for you this week. I started 2022 with a commitment to write more micro fiction and shorter flash fiction, but occasionally my flash hovers closer to the 1000-word mark. Today’s story falls in that camp, and I’m considering continuing it in December (after next week’s writer showcase.) Here’s an excerpt:

He liked the word “finagle.” Liked how it sounded exactly like what it meant. He’d learned it in school only the week before, and the sounds had worked their way into his brain. Maybe it would be easy to do it too.

I promised you a review last week of Jessica Vitalis’s book The Wolf’s Curse, and I’ll have that for you this Wednesday. Find that on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

I’ll also have all of the installments of Thursday R.E.A.D.s up. This month I chose to take a deeper dive into Stephen King’s newest book Fairy Tale. I finished it this morning, and I can’t wait to share even more of my thoughts with you. Check out what I thought of the book as an Editor, Author, and a Dreamer, all on this Thursday back on The Bookshelf.

Finally, Instagram at the end of this week. I have an exciting image to share with all of you, and it most definitely has something to do with my next book coming from Atmosphere Press. I can’t wait for this book to be out in the world, and soon enough I’ll be giving you more details on it. Check out my Instagram for those details with my handle, @EktaRGarg, at the end of this week.

Take care of each other and yourselves, readers, and perform an act of kindness for a stranger this week!
