The Making of a New Hero
This is a critical juncture in the life of a new book/series. Actually, I’m not certain juncture is the right word for it.
I’m at stage in the process where I’ve already got the book proposal set, but I’ve decided my protagonist needs a better name.
Want to be a part of this process and be able to say about the book series, “That was the part I contributed”?
Well, here’s your chance!
I’m going to ask for suggestions in the comments section of this post, and then go through them. If I find one I like, I will not only use it, but I’ll give you credit in the acknowledgements of the book, and even send you a signed copy of one of my novels (your choice.)
Sound like a plan?
Okay, here goes.
Our hero is a male American in his mid-late thirties, about 6′ tall, medium build, Physically fit and well-trained in weapons, combat, and intelligence. He’s also well educated and cultured, an accomplished classical musician and historian.
Of course he’s pretty good looking, but he doesn’t know it.
There! Enough to go on?
Go ahead and give it a try and please leave your suggestions in the comments section at the bottom of this page.
