Keeping In Contact With Beta Reader

Help The Body Boost The Immune System!

A long time ago, I decided to tell people offline about my upcoming eBooks.  Too bad I told these people about my possible eBooks in 2013 and now the year is 2015.  I now have one of my future beta readers as a friend offline and on Facebook.  I visit her often for socializing and having fun.  Aside from ending any possible chances of feeling alone, she also reminds me about my eBooks.

       A few days ago, I decided to tell her about the summary of my first eBook.  There is always the possibility that my eBook's summary and plot will change.  I want to hear what she thinks because I need seconds opinions on my work.  This lets me know what other people might think when it comes to future reviews.  I will post the summary I gave her and her (abridged) responds.

Changing Names Around

New MOOD by Onnit

      Thanks to this page, I was started changing the names around for my current ebook named Golden Sharks.  The world building page guide gives detail on mood and culture.  I originally gave my characters all Greek names, then I only gave the mermaids Greek names.  When the setting was no longer in modern day Earth, I felt I needed to change the names again.

    The humans were given, hopefully easy to pronounce, fantasy names and the merpeople were given ancient real life names that I feel were uncommon in our present day society.  
 For example...

1. "John" (human) became "Joht" and then became "Raziel".
2. Apollo (merman) became "Parazifel", then "Halvor".
3. (Some fantasy names for some humans) "Tizmer" and "Cancor"
 These are just examples from Golden Sharks.
