“Name the Character” Raffle

Pen and bookIt’s time for you to help me finish writing my new novel, Painted Silver!  

I’ve created a special character in this third book of the St. Michaels/Silver Mystery Series that is coming out next month…and the character needs a name!

Enter and win the Name the Character Raffle and YOU pick the name of this character as it will appear in the book!  Name the Character after your wife, your son, a parent or your best buddy – even yourself!  The raffle winner decides!.

The story takes place at the Plein Air-Easton Art Festival where big prizes and fame lure gifted artists to compete. Elite art collectors eagerly search for their next acquisitions. Tension between rivals runs high.  For Abby Strickland, amateur sleuth, love is in the air. It’s an charming summer event… until somebody screams!

Painted Silver is the third book in the St. Michaels/Silver Mystery series that includes Tarnished Silver and Sacred Silver.

How important is this character?  He or she has dialogue, makes more than one appearance in the story and has a long scene with Abby, the protagonist..

Of course, there is one caveat:  I reserve the right to approve the character’s name.  It must be appropriate, not salacious or offensive.  That’s really the only limitation.

Buy one ticket… Buy 10!  You decide!
$10 per raffle ticket  OR  
3 tickets for $25 OR Six tickets for $50  OR  Nine tickets for $75  OR  Twelve tickets for $100!

Buy one ticket… Buy 10!  
Remember, it’s for a good cause and all the money goes to scholarships!

Why have a raffle?  It’s fun… and important.  

For me, living in St. Michaels on the Maryland Eastern Shore is magical.  Exploring the history, the legends and the antics of residents present and past is a delight.  Combining my love of this place with my love of writing is a gift.

And when one receives a gift, one should always give a gift in return.

That’s why I’ve put together this Name the Character fundraiser to benefit the scholarship fund for students at Chesapeake College.  This extraordinary school changes the lives of its students who earn a degree, earn a certification or take a class to learn something new.

Join me in a very important part of writing a novel – naming a character – and helping an outstanding school that changes people’s lives.
