Cyndere… pronounced like “cinder”
January 10, 2008
One reviewer has already pointed out that “Auralia” sounds a little like “Aurora” (the main character in Sleeping Beauty), and “Cyndere” sounds kinda like “Cinderella.”
And this surprised me more than anybody, since it never occurred to me. I came up with the name Cyndere for reasons I’ll keep to myself, but I didn’t think of Cinderella until later, after I’d written her story.
All of this to say that… yes… Cyndere is pronounced “SIN-der”, not “chin-DARE-ay”.
And speaking of Cyndere’s Midnight, I’ve been granted an extension on my deadline (Thank you, WaterBrook!). So now I’ll be finished with the book by February 4th, and it will go off to the copy editor. Hooray!
