With eBook editions the names will appear under the photo displayed on the second page of the book.
Of the choices in the drop-down menu (e.g. Heroine and Hero's first names, Heroine's first and last names, etc.), most people select the Heroine and Hero's first names.
Note: all names will be taken from the top sections of the Character Questionnaire (for example, the Heroine's first and last names).
Licensed to Love is mostly set in Los Angeles, but starts in the deserts of Libya. Our heroine is a fierce and highly accomplished CIA secret agent tasked with dismantling a terrorist group in America. She succeeds in getting the information she needs to locate the terrorist group, but now she has to go undercover as a nuclear bomb specialist to infiltrate the terrorist group. Her mission proves infinitely more complicated when unbeknownst to her, she falls for an MI6 secret agent who is working the same case. They embark on a torrid love affair, but it gets dangerous when the terrorists finally have their bomb.
When entering the heroine's first and last names, include the commonly used first name and a surname that differs from the hero's last name. If you are purchasing this book for a married couple, use the heroine's maiden name. If you can't remember your heroine's maiden name, feel free to make one up. Unusual names like Bigglesworth are fine and are actually quite funny in the story or use the James Bond, secret agent, girlfriend name from Casino Royale, Vesper Lynd.
Descriptions of hair color, length and type are included within the storyline of the book - so select the basic description that best suits the person you've picked to be the heroine. Not sure of the eye color? Many people select gray for those eye colors between hazel and blue. NOTE: We cannot add or change the descriptions that have been provided.
The favorite drink selection is used at a gala event - our heroine is drinking water because she's on the job but references her favorite cold beverage.
Our heroine's best friend is also a CIA agent but of the technical support department. She's the voice in our heroine's ears when our heroine is busting down doors and shooting terrorists. She's also our heroine's support system, always telling our heroine what's right and what's wrong.
If you can't think of a 'female friend' for the heroine, don't worry! Select a public figure or Hollywood star.
Choose the commonly used first name for the person you have selected. For instance - if she is usually addressed as 'Beth' use this name instead of Elizabeth.

Our hero is the 007 of MI6, one of their best agents. He's very powerful, highly skilled, and he has never failed a mission. Although he is ruthless with terrorists and those who seek to do the Crown harm, he is kind, patient, and very understanding. And even though he has a perfect track record, meeting our heroine is about to change that.
When entering the character's name, include the commonly used version - for example, Mike for Michael. Feel free to use a nickname if that is what you usually reference. If you can't think of a hero, pick a TV star like Robert Downey Jr., or George Clooney or perhaps a James Bond actor, Sean Connery or Daniel Draig.

The hero's male best friend is also an MI6 agent and is initially trapped behind enemy lines and our hero is sent to save him and bring back the information that MI6 so vitally requires to put a stop to a nuclear bomb detonation.
Suggestions for the "friend's" character would be a close friend or neighbor, a brother, a cousin, classmate, or even a TV character! If you can't think of a name for the 'friend' character in the book (or there are too many to select from) relax, choose a favorite cartoon, movie or television character or make one up.
