In my last newsletter I asked readers to send in names for the sorcerer in a story I’m writing. It’s the first book in the The Ghost and Abby series, which is a spin-off of A Viking for Valentine’s Day, featuring Eric the sexy spirit from Sweden and the widow Abby. Eric is searching for a way to become alive, so that he can spend at least one lifetime with Abby in that form. He finds a sorcerer (who has no name at the moment) who will grant him his wish for a price, but Eric is unwilling to pay that price.
That’s the subplot. The main plot involves a haunted manor, a draugr (i.e., a vampire-like creature from Norse legends) diamonds, and of course the regulars from the haunted teahouse in Sunset Cove. It’s a fun story to write, and will be a full-length novel. I plan to release it in the fall.
The following list of names were submitted by readers in my newsletter contest. I post them here to see if any of you have any comments.
Let me know what you think. Do any really stand out for you?
