Names can be challenging for me in writing, which is why I like to throw ideas out to my readers and see what they come up with. Right now I'm working on Soldier of Love, which will be the 5th book in the Hometown Heroes series. The heroine Francine "Franny" Thomas has been named since book one, since she was a minor character in Beacon of Love. I struggled with the hero's name but have finally settled on Heath Garrick. It's strong but brooding (think Heathcliff), which fits him perfectly. And the name of the magazine that will give her and her bed & breakfast a major makeover? Transformations.
Stay tuned for more updates into Soldier of Love -- I'm nearing the halfway point of the story, which means soon I'll share some early excerpts with you. Happy reading!
