For those of you who need updating, the contest was to select a name for a dog character in my upcoming novel, Starflower. The name needed to be Southlands-appropriate and fit for a female hunting/fighting dog, a scruffy gray lurcher.
This is a lurcher, in case you were wondering.
There were so many to choose from, it was almost impossible to pick! But, after great deliberation, the dog has been named. She will be called:
This means that Anonymous is our winner. So if Anonymous would please email me, I will be certain he/she receives his/her winnings (a signed copy of Veiled Rose.)
Thank you so much for your participation, everyone! For those of you interested, here were some of my favorite runner-ups:
Hemlock--by Elizabeth (Elizabeth Anne! The reverse me!). Also suggested by taylor2taylor74
Tala--by Clara and Sister (but it isn't a Southlands sounding name, so I couldn't use it.)
Lyrk--by Maren (again, not a Southlands name, but a great name for a lurcher!)
But there were so many great ones to choose from! Thank you so much for your participation, and keep your eyes open for more name-drawings and contests!
