The question of the week:
Q: I like unique names for characters and am looking forward to coming up with some when I start writing. What’s the most unique character name you’ve come across?
Algaliarept is one of most unique names I’ve come across. He is a demon (evil, but sometimes oddly sexy) in Kim Harrison’s The Hollows Series. The name always makes me think of a reptile of some sort, but he is usually in a body that looks like a human man.
When the first Harry Potter book came out, I thought that Hermoine was a really unusual name and I had no clue how to pronounce it. I’ve since learned that it isn’t that unusual in the UK, it just wasn’t a name that was used here in the States.
There are quite a few unusual names in Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire Series), but my favorite is definitely Khal Drogo, warlord of the Dothraki people.

This week’s Question:
Book Blogger Pride: What do you take pride in when it comes to blogging?
One of the things I’m proud of is the fact that I’ve become more computer literate since joining the blogging world. I always had a strong grasp of standard business programs like the Microsoft Office Suite, but CSS and HTML was a foreign language to me. I was scared to even attempt it at first. But then I started watching YouTube tutorials and researching online, and now I can finally make changes to my style.css sheet with confidence. This was a big deal for me because I am definitely not naturally gifted in this area.
I’m also really proud of being part of this book blogging community. I’ve met so many fantastic people through blogging, and I think it is really wonderful how supportive and helpful we all are with each other. The positive atmosphere that exists here is really inspiring.
