It's Book Buyer Eat Book Agent Eat Book Writer World


Blagent Rachelle Gardner offers an interesting industry-wide take on rejection.  Damn, she's got a lot of followers.  I guess we are a desperate sort, we writers.

How is that name pronounced? Is it like rah-SHELL, or ray-CHELL, or RAY-chell? This is the third time I've seen it in print this month, and it's not like it's a new name, because I see it attached to middle-aged women. Help me.

I think it's "Rah-SHELL" (as in rhymes with La Belle) which is really the French prononciation of "Rachel".

Because "RAY-chell" would surely be spelled the more usual "Rachel"?

I'm not sure though, as it's not my name ("I'm Anonymous" to quote Larry David).

So is it like a variation of Rochelle? You just say rah instead of ro? Thank you btw.

It's Ruh. Rhymes with "duh."

Ruh-shell.

Say this sentence aloud: "I picked up a shell from the beach."

Rachelle rhymes with a shell.

That's the best I can do.
