I always have my baby name book handy when I start plotting. Sometimes I know what my characters are called straight away, other times it’s more of a vague feeling. In my Sex with Strings series I had to pick two names, or more, for the vampire guys. The vampire’s real name, the name they currently used, then their stage name.
Vampire rock stars have stage names so they can disappear more easily from the spotlight when people start to realize they aren’t aging. ;)
The picking of stage names was actually a lot of fun.
Phoenix for the guy who was burning his relationship to the ground and starting again.
Thanatos for the vamp who couldn’t feel any sensation and was trapped in his own body.
Sirius, the brightest and best, yet he always stepped aside for the flashy showman who is Absinthe.
Absinthe got his name because of his unnaturally green eyes.
To celebrate the release of Enchanting Absinthe today (yay!) I’m going to give away the first three novellas in the series, Kissing Phoenix, Tasting Thanatos and Sharing Sirius, all you have to do is tell me what your stage name would be.
Winner will be drawn by random on Monday the 15 July 7pm WST
