I’m terrible at naming things. All my books have working titles like “The Space One” and “The Cosy Murder #1”, and my character names look like the unnamed extras in a movie (policeman #1, Guy at the Bar, Stripper #4, Main Character etc)
So when I needed some names for some racehorses for a story I’m working on, I thought I’d hit up facebook and see what my friends and family could come up with. Turns out, it was more successful than I imagined and I ended up with around 50 potential names.
My problem now is that’s there’s too many to choose from. So again, I’m calling on the assistance of anyone who wants to have a say in naming my racehorses what I should call them.
You’ll notice a poll has popped up on the right side with my top choices. You can choose up to 5, since that’s how many horses I have in my stable, with the winners getting a shout-out in the book when it comes out.
Want your name in the book? Feel free to share this post and the poll with your friends and family and get them to nudge your name to the top.
The poll closes in a week, so get to it. And don’t forget to check back to see how you’re doing.
