What’s in a name?

A lot! And considering a change of a name in a POV character is not something undertaken lightly, particularly having grown to closely know and care about the character with his current moniker.

Regardless, sometimes you do have to make a change.

Sorry Roland Pritchard, you are now Warren Pritchard. Sincerely, the author.

    Roland is kind of awesome, you know. (Did you ditch it bc King has a Roland cowboy-type in Dark Tower?) I read a great quote about how once you come up with the perfect character name, you have to decide if you use it or save it for one of your kids. Ha. 🙂

      I think King’s character had a lot to do with it. Maybe after reading the series (no I have not read it yet) and feel for myself that the are enough dissimilar, I may change it back to Roland.
