This baby’s got back and s/he needs a name!
My publisher, Elephant’s Bookshelf Press, is hosting a contest to name its mascot.
A Few Rules of Note:
*Head over to EBP’s website and leave your suggested name in the comments.
*All Entries must be received by April 15th. Yeah, tax day. But naming our pachyderm friend is a lot more fun than paying Uncle Sam.
*The top ten names will be listed over at EBP on April 30th where you will have the opportunity to Rate The Rump–er, vote on which name you like.
*So, what are you waiting for?
Prizes you say? Okay, the individual who suggests the winning name will receive one of three prizes depending on age and/or desires. S/he can pick from the following:
- A copy of the summer anthology (which has AT LEAST one short story from yours truly),
- Or, a copy of EBP’s first novel: WHISPERING MINDS by A.T. O’Connor, a YA psychological thriller (Fall 2013),
- Or, for younger participants, a personalized postcard signed by our newly named mascot, plus your choice of a book listed above (oooh, the kiddies are lucky, two prizes in one).
So, no matter what your reading preference, you should find one story that will tickle your tweeter and make suggesting a name worth your time.
And a reminder: EBP is still selecting short stories for the upcoming summer anthology. The theme deals with endings and whatever that may mean to you. If you’re interested in penning a new piece or dusting off something from the trunk, head over to Elephant’s Bookshelf Press for submission details.
Please spread the word about the contest and the call for submissions. The more names to pick from, the more fun it will be.
Already I can think of half a dozen: Mirabelle, Preston…
How about you?
