Yes, the time is now. I have a character and she needs a name. Instead of falling back on my old basics (baby name websites and random sound combinations), I am asking for your help.

- Include your email in your comment so I can contact you to tell you about your win and give you your prize. - I will post the winner(s) on 12/10/11.
A choice of any one (1) of my current ebooks for free.
If you have all of my published books or are willing to wait, you may choose one of the coming ebooks. At least three are planned for sometime in 2012.
Should you win, I will extend to you a special dispensation. You can be part of the special group of people who know more about them than everyone else. I might even show you the book trailers. :)
Sound worth the effort of thinking up some names? I hope so. :)
An only child, she is strong, independent, and loyal. Orphaned before she turned one, she grew up in her wet nurse's household. Loren, the wet nurse's daughter born the same year, grew to be a best friend, a sister by other parents.
Orwin, this woman's cousin, inherited her father's title and lands. He provides for her welfare, but only barely, keeping her out of sight in the smallest village on the edge of his domain.
Her most obvious physical feature is a mane of wild, red hair. Tall, leggy, but not willowy, she is more of a warrior than a woman who depends upon her feminine wiles. She tends toward practicality and action, making do with what fate hands her and fighting for what she believes is right.
She will be the heroine of the new short story (still untitled) with the opening line, "'The red one is mine,' he said." Her hero will be a man named Lord Irvaine.
She needs both a first and last name.
If you have any questions, just ask. :)
