So, our agent (!!!) suggested Darcy and I should brainstorm a snappy name to write under, since most YA novels are published with a single author name on them. This, actually, was something we’d anticipated, so no surprises here.We didn’t anticipate that everyone would want to help.
Andrew came up with Morgan Meyers. He came up with other names, too, which I suspect are characters from the Transformers movie.
Bob thought up several he put in an email. Unfortunately, the email got caught in one of the many spam filters somewhere in the internets. Sadly, I never saw said email. Maybe this is just as well.
Kyra suggested: “Charity and Darcy likes each other.” This, while true, is difficult to file alphabetically.
We did think up a name, but we’ll keep it under wraps for now. (I know. The suspense.) We need to run it by our agent (!!!), plus, these things can and do change, so we don’t want to grow too attached, or be premature about it.
We do like it. I’m hoping it sticks.
