Name That Newfie Contest

Before I forget--AGAIN-- I'd like to invite everyone to enter my 'Name That Newfie' contest on my website, http://www.karenbesseypease.com/. I will be introducing a Newfoundland puppy in an upcoming sequel to Grumble Bluff, and I'd love to have reader participation in choosing a name. The winner will receive an autographed copy of Grumble Bluff. I'll be naming the winner on September 20th, so come on by and place your entry!

(You can also enter by leaving your suggestions in the 'comments' section of this blog entry.)

Along that same vein, Grumble Bluff will be coming out in paperback in the next few weeks, with a retail price of $10.95 per copy, which will make it much more affordable for young adults (and their parents!) And in this economy, we need all the help we can get!

  2. As in the vacuum, the dam or the ex-president? :o) Thanks for the suggestion! Of course, since you're my sister, I won't be choosing it...favoritism, nepotism and all the rest have no place here on GAG!

    Seriously, thanks for that... now I know this darned thing works, anyway. Did you get a word verification when you posted? If so, do you remember what it was? Some of them are pretty funny! K

  9. I'm probably too late but I think Odin is a good name for a Newfie.
