New Cover of Untrustworthy Tathrelle Ixalla Adger Velexio
She's a Cabossian, a bipedal species with two genders and two separate types of existence. All that matters on Caboss is if you're sterile or fertile. Untrustworthy solely takes place off Earth, and the characters have no inkling that humans so much as exist.
Keiko Kitigawa, who I see as Mei-Lin Quan
I wanted at least one character to be a bit overweight, so I essentially elected her to the task. Because the first seven or so chapters exist to foreshadow much of the rest of the story, her weight does the job admirably. For, who to better contrast with starving characters than an overweight one?
NaNoWriMo, writing, chapter length, how do I write a book,
Consider how NaNoWriMo can also affect how we write. I know it affects my own work. Wanting to make word count at all costs can mean front loading a book. It can also mean oppressive dialogue and extra characters. Meandering is great for word count. But it also adds to chapter length. And it's often the kind of addition that isn't necessary.
If you don't spend time planning, you'll spend it writing. And if you don't spend time writing, you'll spend it editing. If you don't spend time editing, then packaging becomes enormous and takes longer. If you don't work on packaging and spend time on it, then querying will take longer, because you'll be faced with more rejections. And finally, if you don't spend time querying, and just take what you can get (and that includes self-publishing—no slam on it, but it is something we do without spending any time on querying), then you will spend that time on marketing.
Elisabeth Shue, who may be Marnie Shapiro
Like other characters named Shapiro, Marnie is a callback across universes. Her middle name, Robin, ties in with Robin McKenna, a pivotal character in the Time Addicts series. Marnie is also a Bostonian, although I don't outline that well enough.

Give it one last read-through. Look for the right words in the wrong places (e. g. a typo which turned out to be a correctly spelled word, so spellchecker missed it). Look for sense and ease of understanding. Make sure your plot makes sense.
