Being an author is like being in charge of your own personal insane asylum.

Yesterday, my online friend Gerard de Marigny released his début book The Watchmen of Ephraim. It's a political thriller.

Not really my genre, actually, but I'm determined to read outside my genre more often. There's some stuff in other genres I could really use in mine. You should have my review of the book quite soon. I'm not giving anything away before hand.

If this book peaks your interest, you can buy the eBook version here. If you use a Kindle, go here instead. The paperback will be coming out March of this year, so keep an eye out for that as well.

I didn't write anything yesterday specifically because I downloaded the book at the first opportunity.

Today I'll spend reading as well.

Forgive me word count.

Today is T.H.'s birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, T.H.! You should know that you make my heart smile.

Must dash, but before I go, today's Forgotten English word of the day is:

Apparently a blend of expunge and impugn.

Thanks for the shout out sista! I didn't mean to take you away from your writing though, really appreciate your taking the time!

I know what you mean about reading outside your genre but I can tell you this, after I read your fantastic, _The Dying god_, something outside my primary genre, I still came away with strong character and setting influences and a memorable storyline. Those aspects can transcend genre if the writing is powerful enough. If I wrote _TWOE_ the right way, you may have a similar experience.

Thanks again S&M for taking the time to read it!

You're more than welcome, and I'm not under contract for The Great Man series (yet), so I'm not concerned about being away from my writing. The break might prove to be as useful as mulishly hacking away at my manuscript!

I'm really enjoying it so far, g. You'll have to wait for my full review, though!
