#Extract from 337 by @MJonathanLee Published by @HideawayFall #337LEE #ContemporaryFiction #TuesdayBookBlog

I’m delighted to feature an extract from a new release by M Jonathan Lee, who says of the book…

“The initial challenge to myself was whether I could write a novel where the entire story hinges on the last word, which changes your view about many of the characters you’ve travelled through the story with. Following that, I wanted to focus on how nothing is really ever as it seems. My own Nanna, Frances Joan died whilst I was writing the story and I remember feeling very panicked in her last few days that knowledge would disappear with her. This gave me the idea for a character disappearing without a trace, in just the same way as the knowledge. The human condition and what leads people to do the things they do to one another is of constant fascination to me – which means that my stories with mysterious twists should never dry up.”

Today I’m pleased to share and extract from Sapphire Morning by Sylvie Knight. But first, here’s what the book is about.

#Extract from Grammar for a Full Life by Lawrence Weinstein #NonFiction #NewRelease

Released today, the blurb for Grammar for a Full life begins with an interesting question … Why settle for a normal book on grammar when you could learn new things about it and become your own best self at the same time?  

To get what I require for survival and a good, full life, I must often turn the ears of others in my direction. I can’t normally afford to wait on the sidelines for unbidden champions to do my advocacy for me. Who would have incentive to? No one’s stake in my well-being is as great as my own: I’m the person who will pay most dearly if I can’t sleep again because of an all-night party next door, and so I’m the one who needs to say as much to the party’s host.

When she had hung up, he sighed with relief. It was good to know that he wasn’t alone. But when he looked around him, he was suddenly struck by how empty the apartment was. He began to feel himself being pulled down into the void again. Julia was gone. Without a trace. Not even a whisper.
