New Contest Winners

This contest had the most names ever submitted, making it harder than ever to pick a single favorite. I’m so glad I decided upfront to use as many of the names as I could and to send everyone an ebook.

Before I tell you the winner, I’d like to point out some of my favorites first. Prescott Sutton for the homeless guy. Priceless! I will use it, but I may also let him keep the “street” name I gave him.

Mila Kruz struck a chord with me too. Definitely a bartender. Does she sound Russian to you?

And of course, I’ll use Hailey, the name of Stephanie’s baby girl who’s undergoing surgery. I may have to create a minor character for her. Remember, the title of this book is Liars, Cheaters, & Thieves, so I don’t have many parts for good girls.

Keep in mind that I’ve already used a lot of names in my other novels, so some names were scratched just for that reason. Others with a nice ring that I will try to work into this novel or an upcoming short story are: Nikki Reynolds, Clayton Grimes, Matthew Phoenix, Shelia Dolan, and Keegan O’Hara. Those last two could form their own Irish mystery series. And I like Jackie, which I’d already used in this novel.

But my favorite of all the submissions is Jack Pittman, who will be a central character. I hope the anonymous poster will check back in with me. I’m happy to send a print book of your choice.

I’ll contact everyone else about your free ebook. If you don’t hear from me, it’s because I can’t find your email address. So email me: ljsellers.novelist @ Thanks so much for participating. This is always great fun for me too.

Five-Time Readers Favorite Award Winner!


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
