Help me name character "A" and win!

Character A.

it is the first official week of the Help Me Name my character and win contest. Read more about the details here....
So without further adeui, here is the first character description...

Character "A" is a strong willed 17 years old girl just getting ready to start her senior year in High School in Western Washington. Raised by nannies in a mansion overlooking Lake Washington, she grew up with getting everything money could buy but not a lot of attention from her socialite parents.  She’s had a top notch private school education but isn’t into getting good grades mostly just to drive her parents crazy.  In her teens, she has unlimited funds but is repulsed by the wealthy lifestyle and usually sports  ripped up jeans and second hand sweatshirts.  On most days, you can find her with her unruly caramel colored hair pulled up into a careless ponytail and if you are close enough you can see the tiny flecks of brown in her otherwise green eyes.  she has spent years in private karate lessons and knows how to protect herself. The one thing She doesn’t do well is allow herself to be vulnerable or open to anyone. 

Help me name this complicated character and win! Remember to leave the name suggestion in the comments and your email so I can get back to youJ

Help Me Name my Characters and win!

Hi friends and passionate readers! For the last several weeks, I have been outlining my first series and spending lots of time doing research! I am planning on three books. The working title of the first book will be AGLOW and I’m taking a stab at the supernatural.

If you didn’t know, up until now I’ve only written stand alone stories, which has been so fun, by the way. Now, I’m ready roll up my proverbial sleeves and get messy, I’m talking multiple books, awesome characters and an epic struggle of good vs. evil with a twist.

Here’s the thing. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, to have your help, so I’m holding a NAME THAT CHARACTER CONTEST.

Here’s how it’s going to work.

I will need six names for six main characters and I know you, collectively, are going to know so many unique and interesting names. That’s why I need you! Plus we can have some fun!!

On Sunday, for the next six weeks, I will post the personality profile and maybe a sample picture for those of you who are visual like me on my blog. I will leave the post up for one week.  

To enter the contest, leave a suggested name and an email address in the comments below the post so I can get back to you. If your suggested name for the character is chosen (by me because I have to live with this character for three books), you will win either a digital or hard copy (your choice) of either Shackled or Unbreakable Love…or if you want to wait, a first addition of AGLOW.

I’ll leave links so you can check out reviews for the two books that are already out.   

No matter what, I will choose at least two names for use but I might use up to six. Which book would you like to win? Please feel free to enter every week and I’m so excited partner up with you in choosing character namesJ

But the guy is hot, why Change the Cover for Unbreakable Love?

Unbreakable Love was my first published book, the first child, you know the one you make all your mistakes on and then call it learning. Well, the cover for Unbreakable Love was just that, a learning experience.
When the cover guy first put together the original cover, I didn’t hate it. In fact, I probably spent a good five or ten minutes drooling over the guy on the front of the cover, but that is a totally separate blog post. No, I liked the original cover, but I still felt that it didn’t capture the essence of this sweet, romantic story.  
For anyone reading this that may not know, Unbreakable Love is the story of a good hearted but imperfect guardian angel (Nate) who must save Jennie’s life and must do so without touching her! Unfortunately, Jenny, who has been hurt by an ex, is weary of Nate and his intentions. From that premise, Nate and Jennie’s story unfolds. Unbreakable Love is a light read that will leave you believing in love and destiny and maybe even angels.
So why change the cover of Unbreakable Love, because Nate and Jennie’s story needs to represented by the tenderness and vulnerability that is uniquely theirs.  I believe the cover that will be revealed on September 6th does a much better job of capturing Nate and Jennie’s Concrete, Undeniable and most of all Unbreakable Love.
Hope to see you on the 6th for the cover reveal. Until then, thanks for stopping by.
