Whoops Words

Whoops Words (2016/2018) Post 413

  Whoops Words is a spelling book, written specifically for writers. It deals with all sorts of words and terms that writers (in my experience) are quite likely to get wrong. If you've ever paused and stared at your ms and wondered if it should be email or e-mail, Ipod or iPod, sneaked or snuck, laid, lain, or lied, and where the second o goes in the word onomatopoeia, then this is the book for you.



Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
