The "Name the INFF Poster Child" Contest & Giveaway

We're gonna mix things up a little this Friday. Does that make me sound all risk-taker-ish and too-cool-for conventions-ish and stuff? I'm kinda hoping it makes me look cool because, in all honesty, we're doing something a little different today because I sorta messed up on scheduling the INFF interview that was supposed to be scheduled this week. Totally my bad.

So, here's a shout-out to Dan Harrington, freelance writer, author and really, really forgiving guy whose INFF interview will not be seen today, but which will be rescheduled at the first opportunity. Everyone send Dan good vibes, or go visit his website, or at least get super excited when his interview pops up in the next couple weeks.

So.... today's Friday post won't be an interview. It'll be a contest with a fantabulous giveaway prize!!!

See this kid? ----------------------->
Good lookin' kid, right? *ahem*

He has been our INFF Poster Child for about 18 months now. He's done a pretty fabulous job of reflecting the.... er.... uniqueness of these interviews and the.... um... occasional awkwardness I display as an interviewer.

Despite his near perfection as the face of INFF, he has been left in limbo.

The kid has no name.

That is where the contest comes in.

The "Name the INFF Poster Child" Contest & Giveaway

What you have to do: In the comments, give a suggestion for a name for this kid. Every comment is an entry--including if your comment is to second someone else's suggestion.

What I will do: go through the comments and pick my favorite!

The PrizeS: Yes, that was plural. I am giving away 2--count 'em 2!--autographed copies of "The Kiss of a Stranger."
  • One will go to the person whose name suggestion is chosen as THE name.
  • The other will go to the person who is selected by random.org from amongst all the entries.

Bonus entries: mention the contest on facebook, twitter, etc. for additional entries

The contest will close at midnight January 18th, with the winners announced on Wednesday the 19th.

Enjoy!!!

Come on now, can't you just hear his momma calling him...

Drewyard Hinston! Be careful. Or you'll get grass stains on your brand new knickers!

Melanie said...

His name is Alexander Jacob Marley, and he is great great nephew of the origional Mr. Marley....I feel that boy needs a very manly name to survive in his world, so in my mind that's the name that totaly popped up in my head as I looked at his face.

brendajean said...

He would definitely go by the name of Elsinore Glubbottom :) (like it pleeeeese)

I posted about your giveaway on Facebook.

I am going with the name Theodore.

Cedric Pfiffer. Children (especially boys, but potentially girls) named Cedric always need friends.

Kim Coates said...

I was totally going to go with Ralph, so I second Alli on that one!

Jennifer said...

Dang someone already liked Theodore. He looks like a little Theodore to me. But, I also like Felix.

Julie Coulter Bellon said...

My picks for the name:

Romulus, Dexter, or Klaus

Don said...

I'm kinda thinking he looks like a Bartholomew.

Sadie said...

Isn't that Neville Longbottam? Ha, j/k

His name has to be:
Archibald Codwaller

Amie said...

Maynard. My mother liked to use that word when we were less than intelligent. Not that he doesn't look intelligent.
