Why did I choose Siobhán as main character name? And other news…

First of all, please let’s talk about the pronunciation.

Siobhán = shiv + awn

I know some of you know how to pronounce it, but to be clear and don’t flay it anymore.

It’s an Irish name and that means “God is gracious” and is related to these names: Joan, Joanne, Joanna, Jane, Sinéad.

I really like this name and I know as I won’t have children but I had a daughter I would have loved to call her this way, but the point isn’t here.

I’ve always been attracted to Irish names and I’ve decided to use them in every single Novel or short novel I’ll be writing in English (not the translations, the novels originally written in English).

I find this name strong and soft at the same time, the one of a kind name, you can’t forget.

Let’s get to the other topics.

I restarted the translation of the trilogy. I got the principal title along with the 3 subs ones and the covers. So it’s working quite well.

I also started 2 other English projects, so I switch from one to another following the inspiration.

I’m quite happy with the journey I’m accomplishing, coming from a non-self-confident person to someone who dares much more than I used to.

I’m flying to Ireland next week. Back to the Homeland, promise I’ll post some pictures.

That’s all for today folks.
