I’m the worst when it comes to creating characters names. They all end up sounding the same, so I need some name for my bit players in my next book THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY, although for many of the characters I have in mind, you are unlikely to be the one getting away. I have a number of positions open, many of which are complete scumbags. So if you’re okay with that, please leave your name in the comments section of this post.
I can’t guarantee I’ll use your name, but if your name fits one of the characters in the book, I’ll use it. Also be aware that if I use your name you are not entitled to a royalty or any financial recompense and that you are giving up any and all image rights. Sorry for getting all heavy there but I have to for legal reasons.
Feel free to share this post with friends.
And lastly, John and Jane Smiths need not apply.
Ooh make me a scumbag 🙂
Amy is a boring name though- so you could always use my middle name: Katherine- it’s a little more airy 🙂
I’m in – although I realize my name isn’t all that exciting!
Eleanor or Ellie is fine. Feel free to use Cawood as a last name, too. Jones is probably on your nuh-uh list.
I’m a lawyer by day so many would already consider me a scumbag 🙂
Betsy, Moira, Myra, Ramona, Jeanette, Roxanne, Mazie, Irene, Sharon – no none of them are my name, but you can use them. Pretend you thought them up yourself.
Dinah, I am in. Got a mean streak and being Bitchy is normal. Also love my name backwards Hanid. Thank ya Sir Simon.
Thank you for volunteering. All your names will be considered. 😉
I don’t mind being a scumbag for once. My full name is Rebecca Alexandria Lugones.
If you need a real scumbag, then I’m the man. My name is Mick Tolley (although some people do refer to me as Fat Mick
I’m Sean Dwyer. The first Dwyer I ever saw in print was a friend of Thomas Jordache in Rich Man, Poor Man. I would like to see more of us in print!
Thanks everyone who’ve tossed their names in. I will keep everyone informed as time goes by…
Use me as you will, but wash your hands first.
Oh HECK yes I want IN!!! 🙂
“Lisa Lang” from Pineapplehead…
Fat, bald and excessively flatulent. Who wouldn’t want me to be a victim in the book????
I’d like to nominate Alan Pardew. He’d be perfect as a villain. Hes fearless, ruthless and certainly not afraid to take on anyone (referees assistants and opposition players especially). He always uses his head (particularly when errr trying to move someone out of the way!!!).
With the results he’s had so far this year he’d have the whole of Tyneside rooting for him. He’d be the one that everyone in the North East would want to get away…
Alan Pardew always looks so respectable. 🙂
What, even when he’s headbutting players????
I do agree though. He doesn’t really look like your typical football (not soccer) hooligan. He’d be perfect as a victim in the book.
Hmmm…I thought I volunteered, Simon, but I can’t find the comment I made. Cy is, of course, a name for both genders.
Well my name is boring so I’m out. However, if you really want some interesting names, I have over 6,000 names in my family-tree and believe me, a lot scumbags.
Rhonda: You could never be boring. 🙂
Selections have been made for THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY. He’s who made it into the book as a character:
Kristi L Thomas
Thanks to everyone who tossed their name in the hat.
Can’t wait to read the book and find out exactly what happens to all of the selected victims…
April isn’t far away…
