Choosing Names for Characters by Lindsay McKenna

12-LMcKenna-Running-Fire-Blog-Tour-851-x-315

Names are special to me as a writer. Check out today’s post on my Harlequin Blog Tour for RUNNING FIRE and find out how and why I chose the names I did for the main characters of my book!

Readers, are character names important to you? Have you ever read a book with characters whose names don’t “fit” in your mind? Do you have difficulty connecting with a character when you don’t know how to pronounce his/her name?

What does your name mean? Have you ever felt like you should have a different name? If you could re-name yourself, what name would you choose?

One randomly chosen person leaving a comment on today’s post will receive a copy of Taking Fire. (US/Canada only)

I love blog tours because it gives me a chance to interact with my readers. And it also gets my name and books “out there” in the vast land of the Internet.

Please go to TLC’s URL for my blog tour schedule. The reason you want too is that I create posts at some of the stops. These posts are important because it gives me a chance to elaborate on the book, a specific character or a behind-the-scenes info that you wouldn’t get anywhere else.  To get the URL’s for each stop, just visit TLC’s website below.

Stick around for the next 30 days as we do a blog tour on my last Shadow Warriors Series book, RUNNING FIRE!

Publisher’s Weekly Magazine, the icon of the publishing industry, gave my book at “starred” review, which is akin to an actor or actress winning an Oscar. It IS a big deal to be singled out by PW and given the vaunted but rare red star review. And here it is!

I wrote a post for http://www.bookmama2.blogspot.ca on WHY I wrote RUNNING FIRE. I think you’ll find it provocative. SHARE if you agree. Do let me know!
