Name that Name (part 2) February 28, 2010

Posted by bobv451 in writing.

A while back I asked for suggestions for a new Western pen name to put on the forthcoming novel, Sonora Noose. Time’s a’wastin’! The name has to go into the contract and, greedy me, the sooner I sign the contract, the sooner I get paid. Here are the current entries, some serious, some, uh, otherwise. But thank you all. The winner gets a character in the novel and the rest acknowledgment (the winner decided by me, the winner’s suggestion not necessarily the actual new pen name but the name of those submitted I like best).

I will close this competition on Tuesday night and announce the new name (and winner) on Wednesday.
