I got some great ideas on titles yesterday – so thanks everyone for helping out. I came up with a town name: Savior Falls which I’m currently using for my working title, although that will likely change while I play around with my whole redemption / atonement theme and come up with something better.
The reason I picked Savior Falls was I like the play on words it creates. The hero comes to town and because of certain circumstances, arrives with the ability to save the heroine. But our hero is also a bit of a broken man (I love damaging my people), a fallen hero if you will, so the Savior Falls works on a few levels. And what the heck, I’ll throw in a waterfall too.
And I’ve changed my hero’s name. I had Noah originally, but it just wasn’t fitting right. It needed to have a harder sound to it, so I went with Caleb Beckett.
Now all that’s left is to figure out where these crazy kids live in the wild, wild west. The heroine has a ranch and some prime grazing land, so I need an area that caters to this. I was thinking New Mexico, California, Arizona, Nevada. I’m not sure the terrain of these places though, other than California to some degree. I know the other three are a dryer climate in some parts, but not sure if that covers the whole state. This would be much easier if I was slapping my people down in Calgary or something, but it just doesn’t feel the same.
Maybe sometime in the next week when I get a free moment I can jump on wikipedia and do a little geographical research.
And speaking of names – my brother and SIL will have to come up with a boy’s name since the ultrasound revealed they will be delivering me another nephew on or about March 8th of next year. Hmm...you know Kelly has a nice ring to it...
Hahahaha...okay I was just typing in Savior Falls and realized if you say it quickly it sounds like Save Yer Balls! Hehehehe...oh now I have the giggles...
