I spent an hour looking through the phone book for names, then realized I hadn’t held my usual “Name That Character” contest for this book. I’m writing a new Jackson story with the working title Liars, Cheaters, & Thieves, and I need lots of names. Suspects, victims, and witnesses.
I don’t want to give too much away, but the story involves three men, friends since high school. I’ve settled on the main character’s name, but I’m still open to what to call his friends. One is ex-military and an outdoors kind of guy, and the other is more of a techie.
But I also need names for bartenders, girlfriends, bankers, and homeless people! As info, most of the names you submitted for my last contest for The Arranger ended up in the book as contestants in the Gauntlet. So if you have a favorite name, enter it, and it could become part of this story. You can always submit your own name too.
Of course, one of these guys ends up dead, so feel free to submit the names of people you wouldn’t mind seeing bumped off.
I’ll pick a favorite submission, and the prize is a signed print book of your choice from the nine I’ve written (or two e-books if you prefer). I’ll also use as many of the submissions as I can and give an e-book to everyone who participates and contacts me with their email address.
Thanks for playing! This is also such good fun for me.
