When the list was down to five names, I carefully played the names over in my mind. Two stood out. There was no way for me to remove one or the other from the list, so I decided to combine the two suggestions into one name.
Carolyn gave me the suggested name of Riley. Tammy Jo sent in Stormy. I rolled them over my tongue many times and then it hit me... First and last name. I altered the spelling a bit, but went with Ryley Storm. Although, Tepish has his own endearment for the woman, but that will come later when the book comes out.
Carolyn and Tammy Jo will each receive an autographed copy of the book, once it's released and they also will have a cameo appearance in the book. I already know what roles they will have. :-) Congratulations to you both!
I'd like to thank each and every fan who submitted suggestions. I loved the response I got from the contest. My wish is that you will continue to interact with me regarding the series. I thoroughly enjoy answering your questions.
