Da, only connoisseurs with subtle sense of humor could appreciate.
Call him Tavarish Yuri...and for the shot scenery, make the hitman say Cagdila Yuri? Yuri will reply Kharachow.....then the hitman would reply Kharachow, Kharachow....Yuri don't jump too fast to conclusions....
These days...people tend to miscommunicate. Who's fault is this? The Emission or the Reception. Does it really matters ...One of the netiquette rule in socia media is to communicate nicely with courtesy and relevance. Try parenthesis like ( lol or joke). It helps preventng bad interpretation. Good luck with your novel! Looking forward to read some synopsis to recommend to some publishers, which would be a great way to interact with a positive and constructive input. Relationships matters.
My bad... learn to comment with context next time...just saying.

Thanks stephan metral \ud83d\udc1d Innovative Brand Ambassador Let me check this out.
Anne \ud83d\udc1d Thornley-Brown, MBA, didn't have something in preparation? or would you like to compete in this contest?
Your most welcome, this contest if for positive minded writer, kind of good people, who do not fear to do things and participate in a friendly competition, and as for all competitions there is an entry fee, like in Judo or Karate or Tennis contest. Even if you do not win you get a profesional publisher opinion about your work. for a few buck it is worth it. It confront yourself with competitors and strengthen your will. Because pro-writing is like any industry, it is a competitive environement.
