Blog Tour and Guest Post - Working it Out by Rachael Anderson

On Naming Characters

Of all the books I've written, Working it Out took me the longest to come up with names for the characters. I created a heroine who judges people based on the meaning of their names. Therefore, I needed the majority of my characters to have certain names that meant certain things. This feat turned out to be a lot more time consuming than I imagined it would. I spent hours and hours researching names, compiling lists, then dismissing some and waffling on others. When I finally stumbled across the various meanings of Seth's name, I knew I'd finally found the perfect fit for my hero. It actually made characterizing him easy and fun. Grace's name came next, followed by Lanna, Alec, and Cameron--characters whose names fit them perfectly. You'll have to read the book to find out why. :)

About the author: Rachael Anderson is the author of five novels (Working It Out, The Reluctant Bachelorette, Minor Adjustments, Luck of the Draw, and Divinely Designed) and two novellas (Twist of Fate, from the All I Want anthology and The Meltdown Match from The Timeless Romance Anthology: Summer Wedding Collection). She’s the mother of four and is pretty good at breaking up fights, or at least sending guilty parties to their rooms. She can’t sing, doesn’t dance, and despises tragedies. But she recently figured out how yeast works and can now make homemade bread, which she is really good at eating.

A chance encounter . . . 
Grace Warren’s life is safe and predictable—exactly the way she likes it. But when she gets roped into going to an auction to help out a friend, everything changes. She meets Seth Tuttle—a guy who unexpectedly kisses her then disappears, leaving her flustered and upset. If she never sees him again, it will be too soon.

A chance for love . . . 

Weeks later, when Seth limps into Grace’s rehab clinic post surgery, she immediately recognizes him. Unfortunately, he’s every bit as frustrating and annoying as she remembered. Yet there’s something about him that makes her second-guess her carefully placed boundaries even though he’s everything she’s sure she doesn’t want in a man. But maybe Seth is exactly what Grace has needed all along—assuming she’s willing to risk safe and predictable for a chance at love.
