new book review

Starting the new month with a palette of colors!

Posted on Updated on

Hello, Write Edge readers, and Happy Holi! In India people celebrate the color-filled holiday of Holi to signify the start of the spring season. We may not be experiencing spring quite yet here, but we’re getting closer. Hopefully this week’s content will help keep you warm.

It’s the start of a new month and a whole month since I’ve swung into our new posting routine here on the blog. Last year I would post my writers showcases at the end of the month. This year I’ve decided to change that up too (:>) and start the month with my writers showcases, and I’ve posted my latest one for you to read. Go now to The Write Edge Writing Workshop for the latest showcase!

I finished a new book in about three days, fast even for me, and I’ve written a review of it. Today I share my thoughts on the upcoming release The Family Next Door by Sally Hepworth. Here’s the intro to my review:

When a woman moves to a new town, her arrival incites curiosity. As the neighbors get to know her, they must juggle their own challenges and secrets while trying to figure out how to save face in front of one another. Australian author Sally Hepworth gives readers a well-rounded look at small-town life in the warm yet slightly confusing novel The Family Next Door.

Lastly, I’ve posted my latest parenting adventure for you. Here’s a sneak peek:

“Keep trying,” my husband went on. “Someday they’ll get sick of you pestering them and say, ‘Okay, we’ll publish your story.’”

He said the last line in a half-joking sort of way, but Eleven just looked at him.

“I know how you feel,” I said. Oh, boy, do I know how you feel. “I’ve gotten several rejections too in the last year.”
