First, let me thank everyone for all the great names! You all outdid yourselves. It was a really tough decision, there were so many wonderful choices, but here goes.

Honorable Mentions (in alphabetical order):

. . . Coyote Hole (submitted by Jan)
. . . Deadfall (submitted by Maggie)
. . . Howlers (submitted in one form or another by Ginamarie, S. Moore and Vicki Hurley)

Honorable mention for an astounding number of submissions goes to Maggie, to Jen (and her husband), and to Pam.

And now, trumpets please . . . the WINNER is . . .

BABE’s (as in Paul Bunyan’s blue ox) submitted by Amy (via e-mail.)

Amy will receive a signed copy of SOPHIA once it’s released and will have her talents recognized on the acknowledgments page of the book. Plus, she gets to hear (read) Cyn’s discourse on the unlikelihood of anyone in that bar knowing about Paul Bunyan’s blue ox!

And as a consolation prize, I’ve posted a new Deleted Scene from RAJMUND for everyone to enjoy. This is Emelie’s POV of the first time she met Raj, when she woke up after he rescued her in Albany, NY.

Congratulations to Amy and to all of the Honorable Mentions, too. And thanks to all of you once again for playing!

See you soon.



  1. Congratulations to Amy! Good choice, Donna. Although…Dangerous Dot’s Dive would have been my choice. 🙂

    I liked the new “deleted scene” but it left me wanting more. Your writing always leaves me wanting more.

  2. I am so excited to have an honorable mention! I’m a new fan, just finished Rajmund, checked out the website, and got in on the contest on the last night. I so love this series, and I love the name Babe’s. Definitely a winner.
    Now I’m off to enjoy a deleted scene.

  3. I love the bar’s name… not one I even came close to thinking of! You really did have some good submissions.

    Thanks for posting the deleted scene; it was great. I’ve been looking forward to it and was not disappointed!

  4. Congratulations Amy! “Babes”… what a cool name! Thank you so much for the honorable mention D.B. I’m now heading over to the deleted scene to check it out! Thanks for posting it for us!

    Have a good day everyone!

    Gigi 🙂

  5. Congratulations to Amy! Babe’s a great choice
    Thank you D.B. For the honorable mention had a lot of fun.
    Love your American Vampire Series (Raphail is still my favorite) can’t wait for Sophia to come out. Deleted scene is great, leaves one wanting more. Thanks again 🙂

  6. I am totally thrilled to be the winner of the bar name contest for Sophia. Having spent a lot of time in the Pacific Northwest and having great friends in Seattle, I immediately thought of Paul Bunyan and, of course, his blue ox, Babe. It’s a perfect name for a logger/vamp bar. And, I assume they’ll all be thinking it’s named after someone’s girlfriend. So, I’ll be looking forward to hearing Cyn’s explanation.

    Thanks, DB, for picking my entry!!
