It’s time to drop some Easter eggs while I’m pending to get my first proof from my editor.
1. florid: the color of blood; vampires’ eye color when they are vamped up
2. violet: purple (I picked this name because I like Scarlett from Gone with the Wind, which means red)
3. Violet’s eye color: brown
4. Josh’s natural eye color: sapphire blue, a darker shade of blue
5. Josh’s alias Jason LeBlanc: blanc means white in French
6. Jason LeBlanc goes to: Brown University
7. Arnold’s natural eye color: grey
8. Leo’s eye color: hazel
9. Thomas’ natural eye color: blue, he has a “Nordic look”
10. Marcus eye color: green
11. Arnold’s car: always black
12. Josh’s Land Rover: red
13. Violet’s dress on Thanksgiving: white
These are the deliberate incorporations of color on my part. Of course there are also some unintended use.
