Favorite Word – 17 August 2019

I do love words and truly enjoy coming across words I’m not familiar with.

So I’m sharing a word a week—many of which seem to have fallen out of common usage, alas, although others might be familiar. I’m also including words that appear in my books that readers have told me they didn’t recognize.

This week’s word is:   tertiary

Do you know what it means?

What are some of your favorite words that might be considered unusual?

(Warning: if you are hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobic, you may wish to avoid these posts. 😉)


If you haven’t yet read any of my books and are curious if there’s vocabulary in there that might be new to you, check out either of my series:

Deuces Wild (space opera)

The Sword’s Edge Chronicles (epic science fantasy)

Getting Ready for Dover Comic Con!

If you’re local, don’t forget to come to Dover Comic Con tomorrow! Lots of great cosplayers, artists, authors, and much, much more!

I’m at Booth #66, and am doing a panel at 3 p.m.  “Writing to Get Published: What an Editor Wants.”

My newest book, Laws and Prophecies, third of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles series, will be showcased. If you haven’t gotten a copy yet, come on by and get a print copy – signed!

And no, book three of the Deuces Wild series isn’t out yet, but if you haven’t bought the first two, you can get them while you’re there and enjoy some space opera goodness as well as catch up to speed before book three is published.

Marcalan behavior – and favorite characters

Now, tell me, would not *Marcalan* be behind a prank like this?
I just have to put something similar into one of the stories.
Should I do a short story (or two) about his childhood? LOL
Further question – is Marcalan one of your favorites or does he drive you crazy?
And – who is your favorite character?
🙂
