In the fifth book of the Spencer Manning series (the working title is A Frame for Joey), Carol’s son, Billy, discovers an Alaskan husky in the cold outside their door. It has no collar, and of course Billy wants to keep it. But there are complications.
Billy wants to name it, but Carol won’t let him because it needs to go back to its owner. The fact that the dog needs a name takes away the drama of where the dog ends up, but there’s a lot of plot along the way. I’d like Spencer fans to name the dog.
In the book, Carol and Billy decide what the name is, but Carol tells Billy since Spencer has been so good to them, they need to think of a name that is somehow pertinent to Spencer. So, think back over the books and think of a name Spencer might call his dog, and tell me why you came up with that name.
The contest will be run on this blog page. To submit a name, simply post a comment. The contest will close April 9. Spencer will be the judge.
There will be three prizes. The fan who submits the chosen name will have their name included in the acknowledgments, receive a signed copy of the book, and have a character named after them if they choose to do that. The second and third place submittals can choose between having a character named after them or a signed copy of the book.
I’m anxious to see what you come up with.
