Yesterday I started brainstorming names. No, I'm not pregnant! Since I will be indie publishing, then, in essence, I am my own publishing house. Said publishing house needs a name, no? Plus I have to register a DBA (doing business as) with the state and so need a name of said business.
Where to start? How about geographical location? I live in a desert so Desert Rose Publishing came to mind. Taken. Okay, what else? My daughter makes us watch the music video to "My Lighthouse" by Rend Collective about 3 times a day (she has good taste in music for an 11 month old!) so I had the song in my head. Lighthouse Press? Taken. I'm pushing my kids on the swings at the park during this brainstorm and a father beside me is pushing his daughter Cypress. One of my favorite trees is a Willow. Willow Grove. Sounds nice, right? Apparently someone else thought so too. Taken. There are some really random publishing house names out there people. Pink Unicorn, Blue Elephant, One Old Tree. Seriously know why Random House is called Random House now. Lol
Back to the drawing board. What is my mission and vision? I want to be a light in the world. Light. Radiant. Ohh! I like that! So, coming soon Sarah Monzon will be doing business as Radiant Publications.
What do you think? If you hate it tell me because I haven't filed my DBA yet and can go back to brainstorming!
