I am still waiting for my second child to decide to make his way into the world. It’s a little depressing and somewhat daunting to be in the holding pattern. I called it though. He was going to be late. What can you do? Make the best of it I guess. So, instead of posting one author I had for today I wanted to squeak this in and touch on the imaginations of a bunch of romance authors.
My husband and I are struggling with names. We have a couple of ideas, but nothing concrete. A online authors network I belong to picked up on this tiny issue and ta-da my week instantly improved – if not from the fun ideas of names, but from the comic relief as well. Tell a group of romance writers you need boy names and you are in for a world of fun.
You should go check out their books. Think about it, if their hero’s names are any indication of how unique their stories are you can’t lose! Some of the men are hot and steamy as the name implies. I don’t know about you, but when I say a name I try to get a sense of what my son might end up like some day. If I had my way he would turn into the next James Bond; be a hero, get a great woman beside him, and save the world. I know. I really don’t expect much from my kids, right? Maybe this is why I write – to get the crazy ideas in check.
So let’s reveal some of the colorful name choices –
Beau, Jake, Finn, Trevor, Colin, Cooper, Rhyder, Devin, and Creed – Mac Crowne
Blaine, Kevin, Davis, Bennett, Ryker – Patricia Gauthier
