About Me

Hi! I'm Becca Fitzpatrick, the author of the internationally bestselling HUSH, HUSH saga. When not writing, I'm most likely running, prowling sale racks for shoes (stilettos, please!), or enjoying one of life's many little indulgences: Ice cream, Veronica Mars, losing myself in a book, painting my toenails, or simply daydreaming. I do my best to update this blog as frequently as possible with news on upcoming events, tips for writers, and all things pertaining to my books.

Name-this-Character Contest

Hey guys!

So...I am holding a contest! A name-this-character contest to be exact. I'm in the final stages of editing SILENCE, and believe it or not, I still have a character I haven't named. Use the form below to send me your character name suggestion (first and last name, please).

Contest ends at Midnight on Friday, May 6. I'll announce the winner at some point before SILENCE goes to print.

Now for the really cool part: If I select your entry, not only will you get to name a character in SILENCE, but I'll thank you personally in the book's Acknowledgments.

Good luck!
Becca

Cristiana Ribeiro said...

Yeah :D Such an honor to name a character from "Silence". Can't wait to read it!
Already send my suggestion <3

yara said...

OMG !!! Yo creo que muero si mi nombre es lo aceptado!! Becca gracias por la oprtunidad que das a tus fans.

Lina ALves said...

Ohh, I forgot last name...so I filled the form again...sorry?!

Justine said...

Does this character have to have a last name too? :)

Kimmybeth said...

I've found a page full of angel/messenger names and their origins and meanings. Some examples of meanings are "messenger of God" and "Angel of Death" or "Destroyer."

It would be a great help if you could let us know if the character is a force for good or evil.

Very fun to let the fans be involved, thank you!

Emily White said...

How fun! *crosses fingers*

najla said...

I am not good with names, but I'll try hard to find a meaningful one :D

Leitoras Anônimas said...

Loved the idea! I can't wait to read the sequel of Crescendo! *-* Very anxious :)

mariibba said...

this is really increible... is as dream i love sequel and whating for silence

Becca Fitzpatrick said...

Glad you're all excited! First AND last name would be really helpful, especially since several people are submitting the same first name.

As for whether this person is good or bad...I don't want to say just yet because I don't want to spoil the story ;)

Jessica Asato said...

I loved it!!!

Nice! What an awesome opportunity. I must also mention that you have hit on one of my addictions. For some odd reason, I'm totally addicted to names. I know it's weird, but what can you do? Haha! Submitted my suggestion!

Samara said...

This is an amazing opportunity, thank you Becca!
Of course I hope you choose my name but I'm sure what you pick will fit perfectly in your story, your characters always have fitting names.
I can't wait until the book drops!

kate.rox.4 said...

Didn't see the "one entry per person"...
So I kind of sent two entries, but they're both different. I hope this doesn't mean I can't win...

So Blonde said...

I am just in the midst of reading "Crescendo" and I feel that there is a love/hate relationship right now between Nora and I... mainly because she is so friggen stubborn and hard headed (just like me). I can't stand the fact that she is torturing herself by dismissing Patch the way she does! I'm only on Chapter 7.. can you tell lol. Becca, thank you for creating a beautiful series like this. I'll once again be swooning over Patch..... again!

If only this series could have a few more books =)

Best of luck in every step you take in life!
