Mantel vs. Mantle

While editing The Curse of Judas, I ran across a spelling conundrum.

Mantel vs. Mantle

I never realized that there are two ways to spell this word, and each way has a different meaning.

The “mantel” is a shelf above a fireplace.

The “mantle” is below the crust of the earth or it could be an important role passed from one person to another (like a king passing his crown).

Happy writing my friends!
