Heartstrings: Future Published Story: Hero Needs Name, Help?!

“Heartstrings”  will be my first published Contemporary romance. If I ever finish it! My sweet, talented man in this book has no name!

(So far on my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/SkysWriting the names, Ty(Tyler), Evan and Liam are at a tie!)

What will be the name of the man who has chocolate eyes, short black hair which is buzzed at the sides, fair skin, and is lead singer in a band with the voice of silky goodness? Oh, and the most important thing, is completely enamoured by broken girl Ava, who refuses to fall back into the clutches of love. He will do anything to prove his love is worth a shot, but Ava is full of excuses, but an attachment to this genuine man she can’t deny. (Working on actual synopsis when I actually get the story completed–or mostly completed! This story means a lot to me for many reasons, and I want it to be as near perfect as I can manage)

Here are the names I have so far for this hotty:
Cameron
Evan
Ty (Tyler)
Austin
Luca
Darren
Justin
Calvin
Liam
Dean
Spencer
Bailey

And here’s a basic idea of how “Nameless” looks in my head.

Hi, all! Thank you for sticking around with me, been super busy! My friend Krystle and I combined our book-blogs into one for The Booknatics, so we’ve been having a lot of fun with ARC reads and meeting wonderful authors.
Which brings me to my next thing I wanted to share. Thanks to one awesome author who gave me that final push I needed to get out there and finish a story to finally share with people/things other than what’s at home (lol) she is hosting my story in her Housewife Fantasy Anthology.
Lookie there! my name is there!

There’s quite a few other newbie authors such as much joining, very exciting! The book will be released sometime in August. Keep an eye out! There will be a story for everyone in this anthology. Different genres and different thrills.

Also, I stumbled upon a picture that reminds me of a certain scene I wrote near the end *shifty gaze*

I will be revamping this blog too to match the one I have for Blogger for those who don’t follow there, I am really excited to be burying my fear of the public view. Slowly, but surely, I will conquer my fear and wipe all the dust off my stories in storage, and bear what people may think, muahhaha

 

Here’s a link to my blogger: http://skyswriting.blogspot.com/
There, I will be giving out free copies of my stories for reviews and ratings and honest feed-back! I will be writing a bit of everything to publish. YA, PNR, Paranormal Thrillers, Mysteries, Crime-Thriller, Contemp-Erotic Romance(under a penname), and also a blog series.

How I vision my characters as I write…

Lana Del Rey and Paul Marron

Lana Del Rey and Paul Marron

Alright, don’t laugh too hard at my botchy job! I got a tad bored today and played around with some cover ideas. This is as close as I could get how I vision my characters in this Brazilian thriller I am writing… Searching for the right model to portray my “Jared Stirling” I found Paul Marron… That’s when I realized, “Holy crap, he’s on SO many of my favorite books covers and I have yet to realize that…” But, with grey eyes and hair just a bit longer, swept back and down to his ears, is my Jared.

And then, there’s the stunning “Lana Del Rey”. Only, in my book, Gemma has eyes that are as beautiful as emeralds. This is pretty much my dream cover. Well…with a professional touch and maybe even actual poses. I don’t think I will be recieving any Photo of the Year award for this, for goodness sake. Unless I was nominated by a preschool 😀 *ponders the photo*

I also figured out a somewhat perfect setting in the Amazon, finally. Their main “hub” and go-to town is Iquitos. It’s full of culture, tourists (which allows Gemma to take her vacation to) and plenty of markets to stock up on food and our ‘bad’ guys can head back out and survive in the jungle.

Hidden beneath all this foliage somewhere, on either side, far or near, up or down the river , hides the bad guys. You’ll never find them, and if you do… *evil laughter*

So… there you have it. I am still working on the chemistry between the plot, setting, characters, and dialogue, but I know how it will begin and how it ends, and some climaxes, and turns and wooaaahhh, there goes my mind spinning again. Anyhoooo, thought it would be fun to share some of the stuff I am working on and researching with you guys =D
AH yes, as you see I have solved last night’s dilemma of name picking. What do you guys think? Jared Stirling and Gemma Ainsley.
