Favorite Word – 23 January 2021

It might be a bit unsurprising if one does not know this week’s word. I’ve only ever heard it used in legal documents. What about you? Familiar with it?

I was a little bit of a coin collector as a kid, but I was never a philatelist.

What about you? Did you collect stamps? What hobbies did or do you have?

It’s the new year and I’m off and writing!!!

I am officially starting the sequel to the prequel of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles!

No clue about the name. I do need to come up with a better working name for it. It almost sounds like the beginning of something like the vessel with the pestle…

Any ideas?

Ah, this week’s word is a one rarely heard anymore. I was thrilled when I heard it Gosford Park, said by Michael Gambon’s character. Are you familiar with the movie, and do you remember when Gambon’s character said this?

Author Woes

In order to keep from creating a bunch of continuity errors, I am going to have to reread all three books of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles: Sword’s Edge, Children of the Enaisi, and Laws and Prophecies. And Unlikely Prophet as well and take copious notes.

Why, you ask? I’m starting the sequel to Unlikely Prophet, and also the next book in the Sword’s Edge Chronicles.

I truly don’t enjoy reading fiction which is didactic. I prefer something that is entertaining, not something trying to preach at me.

An Encouraging Few Weeks as an Author

It’s been an eventful few weeks.
To recap:

I recently had an interview in Liberty Island.

Β And a reader wrote a wonderful FB post:

“…when someone knows how to story tell . . .to use adjectives and plots and creatively create a entire new world and describe it while telling a story. . .is an art. This author has that ability, and as you can see, I am finding time each night to read a chapter or two because now that I have started I keep wanting to know where the story is going to go (the crack cocaine of the art).”
Β β€”FB post by Jim Green (re: Sword’s Edge)

Also I got a new review of Sword’s Edge:

L.S. King has created a setting that is primarily Fantasy (Rangers, Psychic Powers, Nobility, etc.) and partially SF. (Nope, not saying why. Read the book.) So I guess, in a way, it’s reverse Star Wars.
rating: 4.75/5

With all author events canceled this year, it’s been rather dismal, but the last few weeks have brought a smile to my face.

Not to mention, this autumn, the first three books of the Sword’s Edge Chronicles were released in an ebook boxset.

Also, the prequel to the series, Unlikely Prophet, is still on sale for only $0.99!

This week’s word is one you probably don’t hear used unless you like history, fantasy realms, or know something about the manorial system. Can you think of other topics where this word might crop up?
