In April, my fabulous newsletter readers signed up for a contest to name a lead character in my upcoming Legendary Consultants novella, TO THINE OWN ELF BE TRUE.
Contestants were given the following description and asked to provide a name. Bonus points for reasons for the name.
A paranormal doctor (a healer). She is tall. She has medium brown hair with golden highlights (about shoulder length). Stunning blue eyes with an exotic slant keep her from ending up “girl next door” pretty.
She is a city girl who has ended up in a backwoods town in the north to help a bunch of elves. She is super smart, sassy, and sarcastic, but not snotty. She’s actually a people person.
From the roughly 75 entries, I selected my favorites and put them up for a vote from all my readers. Without further ado, the winner of the Name a Character Contest, with 42% of the vote, is….
Christine B. with the name of:
Sapphire for her eyes and Sirona for the Gallo-Roman and Celto-Germanic goddess of healing.
Congrats to Christine, and a huge thank you to all who entered the contest. I’ll definitely hold another one of these soon! 🙂
