You wouldn't believe the website names that were taken.

It seemed a pretty simple thing to begin with: figure out a name for a website for Coraline and the childrens' fiction., the obvious one, was taken by some French people selling aquarium supplies. After a while I started getting desperate -- was taken, so was and and and on and on. Even fairly generic things like were gone., my first favourite, was rejected on the grounds that The Day I Swapped My Dad For Two Goldfish was not a Harper Book.

Eventually I came up with a name we could remember that had some connection to Coraline and wasn't taken....

You can find out the website name at the CORALINE coming soon page
