Thank you for visiting my new WordPress blog. I’m in the process of creating my own publishing company. It wasn’t easy choosing a name.
I wanted to use alliteration since I’m a poet. My first choice CitrusClouds.com was not available because there is a three-piece shoegaze/dreampop band based out of Phoenix, Arizona with the name The Citrus Clouds.
I didn’t even know what shoegaze or dream pop meant, but learned from Wikipedia that they’re subgenres of alternative rock.
I love clouds. The word cloud had to appear in my publishing company name because my first creative inspiration came from watching clouds, and the first poem I remember memorizing was “I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud” by William Wordsworth. Most importantly, my protagonists tend to be cloud watchers.
As the title of this post suggests, I finally selected Coastalcloudwatcher.com for my publishing company name. I’d love to hear about your process of selecting titles, company names, and protagonist’s names.
Thank you for visiting my blog.
