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 CLOSED

First off, a big thanks to everyone who participated in the naming of a character in SILENCE! I've been getting a lot of questions about the contest, so I thought I'd post FAQs and my subsequent answers here.

Q: How many entries were there?
A: Nearly 3500!

Q: Have you picked a winning character name yet?
A: No. It will take several days (if not a week or two) to carefully go over each name and select the one that best fits the so-called nameless character.

Q: When will you announce the winning character name?
A: After I've selected the winning name, and after I've contacted the person who submitted it. Hopefully before June!

Q: What does the winner get?
A: I will publicly thank them in SILENCE's acknowledgements.

Q: Will you do another contest like this again?
A: I did a Name-this-Character contest for both CRESCENDO and SILENCE. I see no reason to stop!
