A to Z Blog Challenge - BOUND BY DRAGONSFYRE on Tour - C

On Day 3 of the A to Z Blog Challenge


is for

The naming of Characters

Please join me at KY Bunnies blog for my second interview as part of Black Lion Virtual Book Tours.

Suzie asks me: "When naming your characters, do you give any thought to the actual meaning?"

Find out why I would never pick a name that didn't suit a character, numerologically-speaking.

I try to name characters that evoke an image in my audience's head OR give them the exact opposite image.

Keep up the great posts!

I just think of the character's traits and pull a name out of my imagination. Very interesting subject. Best regards, Ruby.
