In the book Drawn Together, there was an Easter egg. That’s right, a super special secret thing that only I knew about that I turned into a contest for the inquisitive reader who would be the first person to write and ask me about it. It’s all about watching Dr. Who for me, and if anyone saw the Blink episode, my very favorite episode of Dr. Who so far, the one with the super-creepy stone angels that… well I digress.
I never, ever said in the novel Drawn Together what Rory’s first name is. He mentions that Rory is only a nickname, and when Yamane asks him what his real name is, he says, “Aren’t you just perishing with curiosity?” Later when Yamane asks Rory’s grandmother, Rory gives her a look and changes the subject. And I was thinking I’ll bet someone is going to write me and ask me exactly what his name was.
So far, only one person has, and that is SCSPaine from the comments on the original Drawn Together post on this website! Congratulations Stephanie, you won my Super Secret, Unofficial Contest and a copy of Physical Therapy when it comes out in early May!
Now for details on the Super Secret Official contest that I’m launching today. I also didn’t mention Yamane’s father’s name. Frankly, he didn’t come with one, although Yamane says he deliberately changed to his mother’s name when he moved to Japan. So I’m looking for the best name for Yamane’s dad, and I’m going to let my readers choose it in an LJ poll. Please comment leaving me what you think Yamane’s father’s name should be. Yamane was virtually ignored by his dad, who didn’t value Yamane’s mother except for her beauty and never married her. He’s a monied New Yorker, and Yamane has virtually no contact with him anymore. Not a warm or fuzzy guy. The prize will be a copy of Physical Therapy when it comes out or any of my other books, name it and claim it.
Anyway, congrats to Stephanie for winning a copy of Physical Therapy when it comes out, and thanks for being a fabulous group of interested readers!
