I’ve done the March Madness challenge for many years. And I’ve named numerous characters after different people over the years. However, I’m sad to say many of those characters are still trapped in drafts that haven’t seen publication, so it’s no doubt a frustrating experience for their winners.
This year, on the other hand, my current writing project is THE AXEMAN, a book that’s already under contract, with the outline I’m working on having been green lit by my editor. Which means that the odds of this book coming out on time are pretty darn good. In other words, if there’s a year you want to win the contest, this is the year. As I’ve done in the past, I’ll let you name a character in the book. It can’t be something too crazy (this is set in 1918 New Orleans, after all, so it needs to be historically accurate), but I’m sure we can work something out between us. If I can swing it, I’ll do my best to have it be a character who actually gets a role as well.
Last year, losing out on March Madness right when the whole pandemic really took off was a real blow. I was stuck at home, and it felt like everything was in flux. It’s a big relief to have it back this year. I know that might sound silly, but I’m just calling it like I see it. I’m a creature of habit, and I’ve loved March Madness for decades. Its return is another sign that we’re on the road to recovery.
With that out of the way, there’s nothing else to really say except I hope to see you in the challenge! Click here to join the group. It’s name is Bryce’s Ramblings, and the password is vodnik. You have until the games start on Friday to get your entry in. Let me know if you have any questions.
