Inventing Names for Your Characters

via Inventing Names for Your Characters

When I invent names for my characters, I try to keep the names simple, so my readers can promounce them, and so I can remember them. Does anyone else have a different approach to comeing up with inventive names for your characters?

Results of my research query on mystery, suspense, thriller fiction.

Hello my dear readers,
Remember the question I asked about the difference between mysteries, suspense and thrillers? Well, I made a fascinating discovery. Although these three genres are very similar, here are the differences I found. Mistry stories are more of an investigation, asking what, when, where, how, and why a crime took place, and finding clues to solve the mystery. Suspense novels are similar, but they have more of an element of danger with in the pages of the novel. Thrillers, have an element of danger at every turn. They’re like riding a roller coaster throughout the pages of the novel. What do you think about these three genres? Do you find them similar, or do you see the differences? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.

Book review, Before The Larkspur Blooms By Caroline Fyffe

If you read Where the Wind Blows, and couldn’t get enough of Chase and Jessie Logan, Gabe Garrison, Jake, and Little Sarah, have no fear, their story continues in this heart warming, spine tinngling western, which I have dubbed an unofficial sequel to Where the Wind Blows.
In Before The Larkspur Blooms, Ms. Fyffe introduces a new character named Tom Donavan, who grew up in Logan Meadows, which starts as a small town. However, with the railroad slated to have a stop in Logan Meadows, people start trickling into town, and settling in among the natives, including a hotshot rustler by the name of Rome Littleton, who made Tom take the wrap when he got shot in the head eight years ago.
In one way this book reminds me of the movie Eldorado, where John Wayne’s character has a bullet lodged in his back, accept Tom’s bullet is lodged at the base of his skull. Well, I don’t want to spoil this one for you, so I’ll say that things get pretty shady, and the characters will drive you crazy in this one too, but let me warn you, Before The Larkspur Blooms will bring a smile to your face, a tear to your eye, and it will melt your heart. However, If you haven’t read Where the Wind blows as of yet, I suggest you read that one first,because if you don’t you might get a little confused by some of the goings on in Before The Larkspur Blooms. This is why I think Caroline Fyffe wrote them as a mini series, because you can’t read one without reading the other.
Happy reading, and I hope you enjoy both of these incredible stories.
