Kill or Be Killed: Book & Name Giveaway

We’ve all thought about killing someone…at least for a second or two, and crime fiction novelists like myself get to act that out in novels. Now it’s your turn. I’m giving away the opportunity to name the murder victim in the futuristic thriller I’m writing. (You expected someone  to die, didn’t you?)

You can submit the name of someone you’d like to see dead, for example, that girl who rejected you in high school or the dentist you’ve come to hate. Or if your sense of humor includes seeing your own name attached to a corpse, then by all means, submit it instead. I’ll simply pick my favorite. The winner also will receive a copy of Dying for Justice, my newest Jackson novel. And everyone who enters will win an e-book version of the same novel. Email me here with your preference for mobi or epub. I’ll likely give away a second print copy too, because I can never limit myself to one.

The futuristic thriller will be released in September and features Detective Evans, a major POV character from Dying for Justice. The new story (working title: The Arranger) is set 13 years in the future when Lara is working as paramedic in a changed world. The murder victim is a young woman Lara Evans competes with in a national endurance competition. So submit female names please.

As background: In Dying for Justice, the book I’m giving away, Detective Evans investigates her first solo case, and readers get to know her in much more detail than in earlier Jackson books. Readers have raved about the story, giving it an average five-star rating on Amazon and it might be fun to read it before The Arranger comes out. (Seeing the protagonist now and in the future.)

Do you have any great victim names for me?

  1. Autumn Sky, she was my beloved Weimeraner, gentle soul, who died to young.

    Cricket Q Williams, Cricket is my English Pointer, I rescued her and named the dog rescue I run after her, Cricket’s Corner. She was almost a victim of the dog warden, she was Heartworm Positive!

  2. How about ex-bosses? Too many to suggest but how about Cindy Morton, for one. :{D-

  3. A great name for a victim would be Julian Brentwood.

  4. I’m sure there’s at least one book of yours I haven’t read yet. 😀

    What kind of person is this victim?
    Twelda Higgs
    Mercer Twuft
    Mia Marston

    I really enjoy reading books and finding DLers all over the place.

    Best,
    Theresa

  5. I would suggest the name of the HR person who suggested I change careers when I was downsized – Lisa Hutchinson. And I would very much like an ebook.

  6. Do you have any great victim names for me?

    Yes, I do! 🙂

    How about: Sara Fleets

  7. I’m just glad my name hasn’t been submitted by someone else.

    How about Arnelda Switchawigger?

  8. Jason Copeland

  9. I forgot to add I would like the epub

  10. I have two names for you one girl and one guy!!

    Melinda Becker or Jerry Ennis

  11. I’d love to see my own name in one of your books, even if I am dead. Lol.
    Jodi Hansen

  12. Suzie Ventola … combination of names from two untrustworthy types I worked with. What fun!

  13. Prophecy Moore

  14. Jennifer Jane Lawrence

  15. If this character (victim) is not a nice woman then the perfect name is Nancy Medogrol. I’ve spent a lot of my life trying to be a good person and used the technique of asking myself what would Nancy do and then I would do the opposite. Epub please.

  16. Rae Rotella.
    I’d like ePub, please.

  17. There is someone. Yes there is. And I’m watching you.

    Cheers — Larry

  18. I thought of the sixth grade girl who picked on me on the bus in first grade. However she is still alive and I don’t want her to find out and create more issues, though it was a delicious thought and her name would have been a good one.

  19. Tewanda Hardy

  20. A great name would be the girl in 6th grade who picked on me in first but alas she is still alive. And with my luck would find out and later try to sue me. But it would have been a good last name.

  21. not sure why but the name Virgil Hogg came to me while i was reading your post! LOL

I thoroughly enjoyed this novel. The characters were compelling, the procedural work was dead-on, and the story was enthralling. Definitely recommended.”
~Michelle Gagnon, author of Boneyard
The author expertly intertwines multiple story lines, presents readers with fully realized characters that readers will feel they know, and keeps the action and suspense levels high. That’s a lot to expect from an author but L. J. Sellers delivers.” ~OverMyDeadBody
