I mentioned in a previous post here, and on my LiveJournal that I’m having a contest to find the surname of Yamane’s father from the book Drawn Together. I admit that this is unorthodox as the book has been written. I really didn’t need to know the surname of Yamane’s American father because he never married Yamane’s mother. But when fans wrote to ask because it was mentioned, I thought it might be fun to give him a name of some sort, preferably one that fits his knickerbocker ancestry and present state of wealth. Something that says I care more about money than my offspring. 😉
It’s pretty clear that Yamane comes by his sense of superiority naturally, he isn’t lacking in either an air of deposed royalty or a solid sense of entitlement. On the other hand, Yamane’s earned his money by working hard for it, and his eccentricity is part of the total artistic package.
So far I have been given the names Morris, Buchanan, Rupkin, and Richard. So if any more names are out there and you think they might work, please don’t hesitate to comment here.
The Winner will receive a copy of the eBook Physical Therapy from me as soon as it comes out from Loose Id (May 7th) and I’ll be choosing and announcing the winning name on Sunday, March 29th. (Out of an attractive hat, as always.)
In other news, I am working on edits of three different novels right now, I have one work in progress, and I’m trying to come up with two novellas for July.
