To celebrate my second published novel, I am holding my first ever contest. Depending on how it goes, there may be more to come. The winner gets a free, autographed, first print edition of So Many Secrets and the chance to name a character in the second novel of my Northman trilogy.
1. You get to pick a baby name! That’s fun, right? There are just a two caveats:
2. It must be a male name.
3. It must be correct to Scandinavia during the period 500AD-1000 AD. The novels are set between 816 and 820 AD, but I like to give myself leeway.
4. That’s it. I will check on the historical accuracy of the names. I do not claim to be 100% accurate all of the time, but to make this a little more difficult and to keep my writing in line, I don’t want this to be an anachronism. I will choose the name I like best. It’s going to be strictly a matter of taste, so please don’t assume you didn’t pick a perfectly lovely name if you do not win.
