I got my hair done (after 5 long months)
And I got a pet fish to keep me company while I write! He now lives on my desk, he's a Siamese Fighting Fish (Betta), and I adore him!
|Isn't he purty?|
So I've decided to celebrate my birthday with my real and virtual friends with a Naming Contest! My new little writing pet needs a name!
How to Enter and What You'll Win
- Please comment on this blog with your name ideas--but you can also leave names on Facebook or Twitter.
- The grand prize winner will receive a $10 Amazon gift card, a paperback copy of The Pet Washer, plus eternal bragging rights that they named my pet fish (or at least until he dies)!
- The two runners-up will win a paperback copy of The Pet Washer (makes a great gift for a kid in your life!)
- I will post the winning names on August 1, 2012 and the prizes will be sent out immediately. You must contact me if you won (unless you've left me some way to get a hold of you. You can email me privately via the email link on the right bar of this blog.)
- You must play to win!
Fast facts about Betta's
Writer friends--you must get one! They are predators, so they are highly interactive. My fish watches me--seriously--he makes eye contact! They can breathe air a little bit so they don't need an air filtering tank.They are used to living in elephant footprints--so they think a fish bowl is the Taj Mahal (no cage-guilt!). They are affordable, they are beautiful, and they might even be inspiring! Don't be surprised if a Betta shows up in The Pet Washer series one day!
