Today is the publication day of Mask of the Gods, the debut novel of author Karen Furk and the first in her Mask Chronicles series. I have been working with Karen for more than two years now on this series and can honestly say I have enjoyed every minute of it. If you like fantasy books, you won’t want to miss this one.
Every time one of my authors launches a new book, I feel as proud as a mum with a newborn – today is no exception.
Many congratulations, Karen
Mini-blurb: Fantasy fiction from debut author Karen Furk with a fresh new twist. Haydan Tournadir’s world has been turned upside down by the arrival of a soul demon. An ancient artefact might be able to help him. His quest to retrieve it might also cost him everything he holds dear.

Right, it’s that time, NaNoWriMo 2018 is almost upon us. For those of you not in the know, that stands for National Novel Writing Month. The aim is to write 50,000 words in 30 days. Easy, right? No, but put aside those distractions and do it!
I am busy plotting and sketching out characters and chapter plans ready for the first big write-in tomorrow. Unfortunately I didn’t manage to finish my current book The Proposal by the end of the month, but when your kids are sick, what can you do. It will have to wait until December now.
So, November is all about the new book Just One Day. I shall chart my progress here. Anyone taking part in NaNo wishing to buddy me will find me on soozbuch on the NaNoWriMo site. Good luck everyone!

Lent and leant.
‘I lent my brother a tenner to go to the cinema.’ BUT ‘I leant against the fence and it gave way.’

Oh, and if you have any special requests about commonly confused words, please feel free to let me know.
I will eventually write about something else, but whilst there are so many examples presenting themselves to me on a daily basis, let’s continue with the Commonly Confused Words series!
#24 Sheer and shear
‘It was sheer good fortune that he saw her coming out of the shopping centre.’ AND ‘The cliff was so sheer that not even a mountain goat could descend it.’ BUT ‘He sheared the sheep then sat down for an ice-cold beer.’
It’s Monday and time for Commonly Confused Words #24
Envelop and envelope
‘She allowed him to envelop her in a hug.’ BUT ‘I need an envelope to put my letter in.’ VERB v NOUN!
Last one of the week!
Born and borne
‘I was born in Scotland.’ AND ‘His anger was born out of the belief that his wife had cheated on him.’ BUT ‘I can’t believe he has borne this burden alone.’
More next week and feel free to ask any questions about those that stump you!
Have a great weekend everyone
