Illegally Innocent Trivia: Name Changes

In the final version of Illegally Innocent, Grace’s last name is “Hampton.” However, in the original manuscript, her last name was “Hollingsworth.” I changed it because someone (I don’t remember who it was for sure, but I think it was my fiance) thought “Hollingsworth” was a weird last name. I’m glad I changed it.

Illegally Innocent was originally named Smuggling.

As I was doing a few final read-throughs of the manuscript before submitting it to Mill City Press last winter, I realized I had named three different minor characters “Tom” and had to re-name two of them. If you’re writing a book, make sure you check it for repetitive naming!
