Hello again, kind readers of Confessions of a Mystery Novelist! Indy here, with an update on the name-the-character contest that so many of you were nice enough to enter. Margot and I really appreciate your helping her out with this character’s name! She was really getting quite irritating about this.
There were so many great names suggested that it was very hard for me to choose a name, and it would have been impossible for Margot to do so.
In fact, there were so many terrific ideas that Margot and I decided to award two lucky winners signed copies of Publish or Perish.
So, without further ado, here goes. The winning name for Margot’s character is…… Jered Carr – suggested by Patti at Friday’s Forgotten Books.
The second winning name, which will be used for another character in Dying to See You is….. Carter Barclay – suggested by Bernadette at Reactions to Reading.
Patti and Bernadette – Congratulations! Margot will Email you very soon to get your postal addresses.
Margot and I would also like to give an Honorable Mention to Philip, who suggested the name Sheldon Bernays. Unfortunately, there’s already a character named Sheldon in the book, so I wouldn’t let Margot use it again.
To those of you who took the trouble to choose names and weren’t winners, thanks for your interest and please take heart. Margot’s next book, B-Very Flat , is coming out this spring, and I’ll bet I’ll be able to talk her into a giveaway then.
Thanks again for your interest in Margot’s blog!
