Interesting.

Are you intentionally tying it into David Weber's series?

Umm... no, not that I know of. I assume you mean the Honor Harrington series? That's on my "To Read" list, but I haven't actually gotten around it yet (still working on Game of Thrones). Is there a Stephanie Harrington in that series, too? Or is there some other similarity I'm not aware of?

Stephanie Harrington (If I remember correctly - it's been a long time) is the first girl to bond with a treecat, and for that reason became a large figure in Manticoran history. Honor Harrington's middle name is Stephanie.

Huh. That's a disturbing coincidence, especially the part with the cat. Think I should change the comatose redhead's name to avoid any reader confusion?

I have no opinion on the matter. Coincidences happen.
In the HH series, Stephanie Harrington was not described as red-haired, and was very young, in a different star system, and nothing like this happened in that series, nor were any species like these buoyant "cats" described.
Also, unless something bad happens to the Harringtons, it can't really be the same family. In Weber's series, the Harringtons didn't start out as a wealthy or powerful family.
It is clear that this is not the same person.

I'm thinking about changing the title from "Financial Freedom" (which sounds like a self-help book) to "Predatory Practices".

What do you think? Better title? Worse? About the same?

Thanks!
