I took a break from revision today to revisit my novel.
I did a quick Google search and found that there is a small town in India with the same name of my novel which is also a place in the book. There is also a character from the World Of Warcraft games with the same name and the Roman Godess of brooms has a very similar name.
I'm not worried about the Roman Godess but if my novel is published will there be a copywrite issue? Please keep in mind that at the time I thought up the name I did not know of the character or of the Indian town.
