THE OFFICIAL RENAMING OF JAKE, the awesome, but deceased character in my YA novel

[If you don't know what I'm talking about click on this link... http://valerieipson.blogspot.com/2010/06/random-acts-of-contests.html]

I've come to a decision.

It was a very difficult decision.

Not so difficult to narrow it down, but difficult to choose between the two I narrowed it down to because even though the guy formerly-known-as Jake is not really a character in my book per se, he does affect Taryn's life and I care what his name is.

The new name I have chosen for Jake is...

++++BLAKE++++


SUMITTED BY KBREBES
(AND APPARENTLY HER FAMILY)

You are the recipient of one 4th of July vinyl lettering design
as pictured in a recent blog post!!!

I know. Jake...Blake. Do you see how kbrebes' genius mind works? Well, it worked for me and now Jake is officially Blake, or at least he will be when I go into my 25 chapters and change it.

If it's any consolation, Brett submitted by Landi was a very close second, but Landi is my daughter and I'll make vinyl lettering for her anytime and she knows that.
*kbrebes, please email (check my profile) me your address and I will get this lettering in the mail ASAP. Oh and let me know what color you want it.

Very smart choice - even if it wasn't mine!

I like Blake. Congratulations, KBREBES!

Angie said...

Blake is good. (I may use it too.)

Landi said...

Wahoo! I was a close second. I think I need some vinyl lettering. I'll be using the name Brett in my novel. :)

Blake is a good choice.

If you find an easy way to change someone's name throughout your whole manuscript, will you please post it? I did a name change for twins who appeared throughout a 110,000 word work. It was NOT fun.

Glad you found something that worked for you, it's a good switch.

My whole family is J names (I know) and I find myself drawn to them. Just one of those things...

Valerie Ipson said...

My three sons are J's, so yeah...

Jolene, there's a way to do an easy fix and it has something to do with Find and Replace. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm going to today so I'll let you know. My husband said he will help me if I can't figure it out myself, so one way or the other today Jake will become Blake. Drum roll, please...
