Emily Bryan’s “Pirate Name Contest”
Direct From Emily Bryan’s Website: http://www.emilybryan.com/Pirate%20NameContest.htm
PIRATE Name Contest!
Page under construction with YOUR help! ~ Check back often for new entries!
Why a Pirate Name Contest?
Every pirate worth his salt needs a wicked pirate name to send terror into the hearts of his adversaries. As they said in THE PRINCESS BRIDE, “Who’d ever fear the dread pirate Wesley?” Edward Teach became the infamous Blackbeard. Gabriel Drake, the hero in PLEASURING THE PIRATE was known as “The Cornish Dragon.” A name evokes the essence of a character. So do your worst! Send in your most fearsome pirate name! Or your funniest pirate name! Or a female pirate name! Your choice!
How do I enter?
Click over to my Contest page and fill in the entry form. I’m currently running a contest with Kathryne Kennedy till September 1st, so you can enter both contests on the same page. Just be sure to enter twice so you have a shot at both. Type PIRATE NAME in the comment section and then your original pirate name. I’ll post the names here for everyone to see. On September 19th~ INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY~ I’ll whiddle the field down to just the 10 most inventive entries. Then I’ll need your help again. Visitors to this website will get to vote on the final entries. Voting stops on ~ you guessed it~ Election Day, November 4th!
What can I win?
For starters, you’ll win signed copies of my entire backlist, PLEASURING THE PIRATE, DISTRACTING THE DUCHESS, SILK DREAMS, ERINSONG and MAIDENSONG. Plus, I’ll fill a box with books I picked up at RWA in San Francisco, many of them signed by the author! Then for good measure, I’ll toss in a $25 gift card to Barnes & Noble.
Sounds like someone’s going to make out like a . . . pirate!
