Who Wants To Name Two Wyverian Characters?

I just posted this on my Facebook page but I’ll also post it here.

Who out there would like to name not one, but two dragons? I’m now accepting suggestions for dragon siblings. Two brothers from one family and two sisters from another. The names can be made to resemble one another, like Don and John, or they could be completely different. I leave it up to the fans!

So whaddya say? Got any suggestions for me? Who knows! It very well may end up in SWtwC!!

Oh, consequently, the winner of the Bakkian Chronicles cap will be announced either later today or tomorrow! Stay tuned! If you haven’t done so already, enter now for a chance to win!

How to Name a Dragon

It’s easy.  You have a fantastic legion of fans who love dragons just as much as I do and therefore ask for a little help.

What do I mean?   In case you don’t have facebook I’ll repost the message I put there.  This is what I said:

Is there anyone else out there that loves dragons as much as I do? I have to tell you guys, I’m really enjoying working on a story with dragons as the protagonists!

While waiting to get Lost City into the hands of my Beta Readers, I officially started on the next story in my new Tales of Lentari series. Plot is mapped out and broken into chapters. Writing is underway. Guess what I need again… Yep! More names!

I still have a few dragon names left over from Lost City, but I have a feeling I’ll go through those pretty quick. Got an idea? Want to name a fictional dragon? Tell me your suggestions! Got a description for your dragon? I’ll welcome those, too!

A few more suggestions, please!

Hi everyone!  First off, TGIF!  Secondly, as I’m getting close to wrapping Lost City up, I could use a few more names.  Dwarf names.  Maybe even a surname or a family name.  Any suggestions?

Now’s your chance to wind up in a book’s acknowledgement page.  Want to see your name in print?  Post your suggestions below!

Thanks!  Have a great weekend!

Looking for an Illustrator!

I want to include some illustrations in The Lost City, so I’m now officially looking for an artist.  Since I can’t openly describe what I’m looking for without giving away major plot points, a Protected Post has been created, which is what you see below.

That’ll be the thread I use when discussing aspects of the illustrations.  Are you interested?  Send me a link with some examples of your work and I’ll go take a look!

By the way, I have another copy of The Prophecy up on a GoodReads giveaway!  Enter now to try and win a signed copy of my first book!

I need another name!

Hi everyone!

I just finished another chapter of The Lost City. Really having fun with this. A couple of new species making an appearance… water sprites and a new (ancient) class of dragon that has the misfortune of having two heads! Infused with action, adventure, and a healthy dose of humor, the latest tale set in Lentari will be sure to please many fans of the fantasy genre!

Hey, I have a question for the fans. I could use a name for the general classification for the two-headed dragon. Not an individual name but a name for this “variant” of dragon. Any ideas?Just finished another chapter of The Lost City. Really having fun with this.

Want to name a fictional character?

One of the hardest tasks I face when writing is coming up with character names for my books.

Book III has required quite a few new characters. Most are human, namely peasants, soldiers, officers, and so on. I’m also going to have to come up with some new dragon names. I have some but I thought it might be neat to give the readers and fans a chance to suggest some names and then maybe a corresponding jhorun to go along with them, provided they’re human. 🙂

Anyone who names a character that makes it into the book will be credited at the end! So if you’d like to see your name in print, hit me with your best shot and lets see if you’re mentioned in Book III!!
