K, I forgot K–so my alphabet is a bit topsy turviy –JLK–hmmm. So I asked Google who gave me searches related to JLK: guitars, architectural design, leisure, heating, solutions, car sales, design studio, not to mention all the people with these initials.
Just shows how careful you have to be about choosing names not only for your characters but for the places they inhabit or visit. Fair use does not apply to commercial fiction, and if you’re selling your books, even if only a few, then you fall under that heading.
In the main, people don’t mind provided you say nothing that can be construed as derogatory. But it’s always safest to get written permission from the person, company or place concerned.
K, that’s it for today. 🙂
