new book release

Some good, some sad, but we move on

Posted on

Hello, Write Edge readers. My day started with the sad news of the death of a beloved person in my extended family. This part of “growing up,” I think, is the hardest: losing those who we loved and who loved us so much. But we have to move on; life and the day don’t give us many choices beyond that.

To that end, today’s entry for the Workshop is for my late aunt and the others I’ve lost in recent times. It’s the first Monday of the month, so that means haiku and I wrote today’s poem with great care and intention. Find it now on The Write Edge Writing Workshop.

One of the things that helps a little is to keep moving forward with routine things. That includes the schedule here on the blog. To that end, this Wednesday I’ll share my review of the new novel The Second Ending by Michelle Hoffman. Come back in the middle of the week to get the full scoop on what I thought of the book.

At the end of the week, it’s back to Instagram and bits and pieces of my writing and non-writing life. Find previous posts on Insta with my handle, @EktaRGarg, or by visiting my Facebook author page.

I did get one piece of good news this weekend. Reader Views has given In the Heart of the Linden Wood a five-star review. Read it here to see what reviewer Michaela Gordoni had to say about the book. If you haven’t ordered your autographed copy of this fairy tale for grownups now, go to my author website to do just that.

Thank you, as always, for your support, readers. It means the world to me, especially in troubled times. Also, hug your loved ones. Call them. Tell them you care. You never know when that opportunity will be gone forever.



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 Drowning: The Rescue of Flight 1421 by T.J. Newman. Here’s the opening to my post:

When a flight crashes into the ocean and sinks with passengers still inside, the rescue team above water as well as those in the plane will have to work together to try to save everyone. With time and oxygen running out, all involved will find their relationships and willpower tested beyond their personal breaking points. Author T.J. Newman comes back with her second thriller that outdoes her first book for a summer blockbuster in Drowning: The Rescue of Flight 1421.

Read the whole review now on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

(Incidentally, I’m going to Chicago next week to meet the author in person!!!! I’ll be sure to share a photo on Instagram when I do. I’m so excited! In case you haven’t figured it out by now, I LOVED this book. :D)

Have a great week, readers!
