Have you been following along with the adventures of John Harridy, Zella Rose, and Leonard Walcott? We have officially passed 50,000 words in one month, and completed the NaNoWriMo challenge! But now, we need a name for our book, and we’re asking for your help.
As authors have the hardest time coming up with good names for their books (approximately 70% of books published are renamed by editors before they hit the presses), we’ve decided to hold a naming contest. Until one week from now, Wednesday December 5 at midnight, you can submit up to fifteen name ideas for consideration in the comments section of this post.
Starting on the fifth, S.K. Epperson and I will pick our top five names together, and then submit those choices to a final vote with you, the readers, which will begin on Friday December 7 and close on Sunday December 9th. The name which receives the most vote wins, and you get to walk away with the fuzzy feeling that you helped name a novel (as someone who does this for a job, I can tell you it’s pretty fun).
Let the naming begin!
So, let’s say hypothetically you haven’t been following along, or you’ve been waiting for the novel to be finished. It’s not too late to get involved. To start reading “Working Title” go to this page (and remember to flip back to the beginning of the comments section!):
