How to choose names for your characters.

This is one of those not important things in writing a novel that you waste the most time doing. 

Deciding what names to give to your character is a process that you need to consider.
There are a lot of factors that you need to think about when deciding what names to give to your characters, is it a fantasy novel? A sci-fi novel? Contemporary?
If it's fantasy and you have actually invented the hole world then you should be able to invent also names, like just get some sounds and see if they sound good, or get some existing names that are not common, are you writing a novel that's mostly for English speaking people? Then go get some Arabic names, in general names that are not that known. 
Are you writing a contemporary?
Get names that you like, imagine your character and think about the name that you think would be suitable for him or her.
Use whatever name you like, or invent names that sound good, you can actually get even objects names and use them for the character.

Use your creativity!
Keep writing. 

My novel is getting translated in English, here you can find it in Italian:

Clarissa è una ragazza normale, ha vent’anni e frequenta il secondo anno di medicina e vive in una bellissima villa con il suo ragazzo: Jon.
Clarissa ama la vita, ama aiutare gli altri e adora il mare, dopo aver adottato una bambina per donarle un’esistenza migliore, il suo corpo inizierà a mandarle dei segnali, ma lei li ignorerà e ciò le causerà tantissimi guai, e forse anche la morte.
Solo una persona riuscirà a salvarla dal suo destino ormai scritto, quella persona ha un passato oscuro e segreto, Clarissa vorrà scoprire tutto, così intraprenderà un nuovo percorso scoprendo molte cose che non si aspettava e incorrendo in alcuni guai ancora più gravi.

How to write and publish a book.

Readers always come at the end asking to themselves if they would ever be able to write and publish a book.  Well, it is possible to write a book, and I can give you some suggestions right now. First of all you have to study the market a little bit, if you want to write a romance but everyone is crazy for horror at the moment, probably it's not the best time for it and your work need to wait or it won't be as succesful as you will want it to be. If the ''style'' that you are writing at the moment is successful then make sure that the story is original and it is not a copy of a copy. Do not make grammar mistakes. Avoid them, make sure that someone else reads the book for you and valutates it, if you want I can do it for you, check the services page to know how to contact me, someone should tell you if your book is good or it have no chanches.

This is your time to shine - for all the authors that need to market their novel - FREE

In Italy the government gives every person who turns 18 a bonus of 500€ to spend on book. Since I want to improve my English and to help people I have thought about buying self published authors and traditional published novels but of new writers to help them be recognized and promote their work if it is good.  All you need to do is write to me an email at telling me about your book, what is the story and all you want and follow me on Twitter or/and Instagram (3.1k followers) I will select 5 books a month to buy and review, if your book is too good to be true it will be suggested to my blogger friends and it will get a permanent spot under all my articles with a direct link to buy it.  At the beginning of the month I will announce on the blog who the winners are and I will announce when to expect the review.
(Obviously understand that some months I can buy 2 books instead of 5 because sometimes the bonus doesn't work and sometimes I just don't have…
