This Doesn’t Happen Every Day…

I had a remarkable encounter at my neighborhood’s best coffee shop: Hotwire Online Coffeehouse.

Hotwire sells copies of Auralia’s Colors (God bless them!) And this morning, a woman who had purchased a copy asked me to sign her book for her as-yet-unborn daughter.

Wow.

Even more interesting: She’d already decided to name her daughter Aurelia.

But after she finished the book, she changed the spelling of the name to match my character… Auralia.

Good heavens.

I hope little Auralia grows up to like the book! It’ll be waiting on the shelf for her for a long, long time.

I wonder if they’ll name their next child after anybody in Cyndere’s Midnight

    Will they name their future son Jeffery or Jeffrey? That’s the question.

    That is a Wow. I wonder if the little girl will have problems with misspellings. ;o)
