For those that don’t know what these new featurettes will be about, here is the scoop! “You’ll Never Believe…” will feature the weirdest questions or encounters that authors have been asked/had. Might be about their books or random things, like meetings in a bathroom where someone asked what brand of toilet paper they normally use. Fun stuff and inside scoops that an author would not normally share.
Today’s “You’ll Never Believe…” celebrates the release of P.A. DePaul’s latest book “Shadow of Doubt (An SBG Novel Book 2)”. In this one, the author tells us about how one of her readers named some of her favorite things after her characters…
You’ll Never Believe… by P.A. DePaul
For today’s You’ll Never Believe…I want to share something cool. In today’s social media addicted world authors receive the sweetest, meanest, craziest, funniest, wildest, scratch-my-head-iest messages and posts. It doesn’t matter what genre an author writes, I bet he or she has interacted with readers through at least one social media channel.
I absolutely LOVE when I receive messages and posts from readers. (Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE letters and emails too!) I become giddy when I receive a notification that someone has reached out to me and I’m usually pouncing onto my phone or computer to find out what the message says. So, imagine my squeal factor when I see a post that not only has a person named their Glock (yes, you read that right) after one of the characters in my SBG romantic suspense series, this same person also created an online Wizard101 character utilizing her first name and the SBG character’s. Too cool, right?!?
So, who is her favorite Black Ops operative in Delta Squad? Talon. The most lethal member of the team. The bad boy who lived on the streets and became so adept with knives he’s a legend in the SBG world. He’s cold and standoffish and has no problem speaking out and causing confrontations. For a rare few people he considers family, he is extremely loyal and will protect them at all costs.
Not a bad choice, I say. In fact, I downright approve. ☺
So, now it’s your turn!! I want to hear you came up with the name of your dog, cat, parakeet, ferret, computer, car, significant other, and/or whatever you’ve given a name. Did you use a character from a book, too? Movie? TV show? Random Name Generator? Is there a story?
