What's in a Name?

            Sometimes, a character will pop in my head, introduce him/herself, and tell me their life stories. And other times…. I know there is somebody, who does something, but I have no idea who or what.
            So this has me thinking. How important are names to you, the reader? Do you like everyone to have a simple, easy to remember name, or an impossible to pronounce name with layers of meaning? What about titles? What grabs your attention, or does it even matter as long as the artwork on the cover is awesome?  As always, I welcome your comments. Happy Friday!

  1. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn't find a contact email for you.

    I recently put out an ebook of my writing, called The New Death and others. It's a collection of short pieces, mostly dark fantasy.

    I was wondering if you'd be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please email me: news@apolitical.info. Let me know what file format is easiest for you, and I'll send you a free copy.

    You can download a sample from the ebook's page on Smashwords:

    I'm also happy to do interviews, guest posts, or giveaways. Just let me know what you'd prefer.

    Yours,
    James.
