Weird research of the day: female names for a thief/assassin. For now, I’m choosing Sable. It connotes royalty, which she isn’t, but in a way, she’s Risha’s mirror image. I may just call her Raven or Kiara, but most of the women have names ending in “a” right now and I’m looking to mix things up.

Have I mentioned how grateful I am to everyone who’s been reading these posts? The hits on the blog and likes mean the world to me. Thank you for your support.
