Word Wednesday and A Cover Reveal

Standard

Today’s word is APTRONYM which means a person’s name that is regarded as amusingly appropriate to their occupation.

Here where I live, we have a dermatologist named Dr. Skinner; a urologist named Dr. Peters; and a lawyer named Chancellor.

I also had a probation officer I knew (interned for) in Alabama named Mr. Law.

I love the way the word apt is in the word aptronym as it really is apt, isn’t it?

Check out this new cover for a romance novel set in Venice, Italy coming out in April. Isn’t it lovely?
