No Place Like Home

We got back home last night, after a pleasant weekend at LepreCon. The convention was very small, only half the size of Bubonicon, but the Phoenix fen were a friendly bunch and we had a great time.

I should never go away, though. The amount of stuff that builds up when I leave, even for a short trip like this one, is truly daunting. Hundreds of emails, huge stacks of snail mail (bills, contracts, junk, with a few real letters salted in)... and, for this trip at least, must be a hundred or more new audition tapes for parts both small (Rast, Mord, Jhogo) and large (Lord Tywin, Ser Barristan, Lysa Arryn) in the HBO series. I was keeping up with the auditions pretty well. Now I'm way, way behind...

Well, nothing to do but get into it. I have another convention trip coming up soon, and lots to do before we go.

Character names
First off, I want to thank you for your hard work on these books. Life changing stuff, truly.
But anyway, your post brought up a curiosity I have had for a while. I know there are some characters who have names that can be pronounced multiple ways. For example, Lysa could be "Lie-suh" or "Liss-uh." The list of names with different possibilities for pronunciation is pretty long.
Will the people at HBO consult you on the pronunciations? Or will they interpret it their own way?
If they do ask you, it will be interesting to hear the true pronunciations.
Thanks again.
