It feels like a million years ago…

Posted on Updated on

Good evening, Write Edge readers! It definitely feels like a million years ago since I’ve posted regularly. So long ago, in fact, that even when I post things I forget to tell you all. For example, on Friday I posted new photos to Instagram but forgot to tell you all here! I wonder if it’s just the relaxed vibe of summer that’s making me so laid back or whether it’s all the books clamoring for my attention (including my own that is undergoing production!!)

In any case, yes, there were new Instagram photos to check out from last week. I’ve also got my latest short story for you, just posted. Here’s an excerpt:

He dug his fists deeper into his pockets just as his foot hit another tree root and he tripped again. This time the expletive that sprung from his lips hung in the air for a moment, charging the atmosphere around him with his frustration.

On Wednesday, I’ll share a new book review with you. I recently finished the new release Where It All Lands by YA author Jennie Wexler. Come back in the middle of the week to find out what I thought about this book. My review will be up on The Write Edge Bookshelf!

Finally, at the end of the week, more Instagram pictures, and I promise this time I won’t forget to let you all know they’re up. Find out what I’m reading for next week in my #bookreviewpreview and what else is going on in my world both writing and non-writing related.

Book review now up!

Posted on

Good morning, Write Edge readers! It’s the last day of my vacation, and while I’m a little sad about that, I’m excited to get back to my desk and start working on some of these story ideas I’ve got floating around. I’m also moving onto the next stage of publication for my novella. Every point brings me closer to doing a cover reveal and announcing a release date. I can’t wait!

In the meantime, I’m sharing a new book review with you. Today I’ve posted my thoughts on Waiting to Begin by Amanda Prowse. Here’s the opening to my post:

A woman deals with memories of the past on her birthday and a secret she’s only shared with one other person. As she goes through the day, she tries to ignore her insecurities while also grappling with the reality that her marriage may not be in the best shape. Author Amanda Prowse builds another strong character in a book that needed a little bolstering in her latest release Waiting to Begin.
