Thank you to everyone who suggested awesome names on the last post. Now I’ve got the second question for you: favorite male name with medieval flair. Bonus points for Scandinavian origin. 🙂
Your help is much appreciated.
Stuck on a picking a pretty female name, preferably of French origin. Need to be able to have a shorter version, if it’s too long, because we are lazy, so something like Constance won’t work, because the only way to shorten it is Connie, and that’s a bit more modern than we need. Connie is too modern, and something like Eadgifu is too outdated. Originally, we had Margot, but she just doesn’t seem like a Margot. We kind of like Isabel. That sounds pretty and somewhat kick butt.
Do any of these roads have fun colloquial names? Addicks Satsuma Road, Barker Cypress Road, Greenhouse Road, North Fry Road, North Westgreen Road, and North Mason? The car chase is going along I-10 heading West and we need to make sure that we don’t say something like, “They crossed 99” and then get a bunch of angry emails about how “It’s Grand Parkway you dolt!”
Thank you in advance.
What are you doing this morning? I am google-driving through Houston.
I haven’t decided if I want to appropriate one of these lovely buildings or if I want to confiscate the parking lot across from them and just build a new building there. Building a new structure has its advantages, namely none of the native Houstonians will call us on it.
For White Hot, I nagged Grace Draven, whose husband works Downtown with lovely message like “Can you ask Patrick if there any lamp posts Downtown on this particular street and if so, what do they look like?” That’s the worst thing about book related research. You spend three hours, so you can write one sentence correctly.
So this is going to be my day today.
On the news front, it looks like we’ll have to do some signings after all. There will probably be a signing in Houston at Murder by the Book and possibly one in Austin at BN. More on that when we know the concrete dates.
