Hello, Write Edge readers! It’s the second Thursday of this quarter, and I’ve posted my second installment of Thursday R.E.A.D.s. Today I share my thoughts on how I viewed The Good Sister by Sally Hepworth as an editor. Here’s an excerpt:
As a reader, I’m as much a fan of the plot twist as the next person. As an editor, I scrutinize these twists. I want them to make sense, because when a book requires as much emotional investment as this book does, that twist shouldn’t leave the reader feeling like they’ve just been walloped in the head by a 50-pound bag.
Wear a mask and stay socially distant if you’re not vaccinated.
Wash your hands no matter who you are!
Show a stranger kindness today.
Have a great night!
Hello, Write Edge readers! I’ve posted the first installment of this quarter’s Thursday R.E.A.D.s. Today I tell you what I thought of Sally Hepworth’s brand new novel The Good Sister in the capacity of a Reviewer. Here’s an excerpt:
Halfway through the book, though, you get the sense that something doesn’t quite add up. It’s hard to know whether that’s just Rose being overprotective or whether she’s hiding something.
Wear a mask; stay socially distant. Wash your hands; find out about the vaccine.
Be kind to a stranger today.
Have a great week, readers!
