Contest Time!!!

Be a character in Tyler's story!

I need your help! I'm having trouble thinking of a title for Ty's book. If you win, you'll become a major secondary character in the story.

Brief description:

Tyler is an officer in the Shreveport Police department. He gets a call to come home because of a death in the 'family'. Tyler is the son of Max whom we meet in Reunited By Murder. But when he gets home, he doesn't expect to be pulled into the search for the killers.

If you all need more info, please post here. Email your entries to liadanbrodie@gmail.com please put in the subject line, Ty's Contest.

Good Luck!!!

Decided to give you all a peek at Ty's book. Remember this is unedited so please forgive misspellings and mistakes.

Tyler was about to respond when the door opened and Captain Grant walked in. Every officer in the room started to stand but he waved them back to their seats. “Rawlins, I need to see you in my office.”


Ty had no clue what this was about. He didn't like the sinking feeling in his gut either. “I'll be there after morning briefing sir.”


Captain Grant shook his head, “No Rawlins, now.” He left the room.


“What the hell did you do? He never calls anyone in his office before briefing.” Cass whispered as she leaned close to him.


He caught a whiff of her perfume and fought the urge to close his eyes and moan. He knew it'd been a bad idea when they'd partnered him with her. She was a beautiful woman and tougher than steel when it came to her job. She was also the only one who knew his life history. They were friends but lately he'd been tempted to take it one step further.


“I didn't do anything... at least I don't think I did.” He stood up and left the room to meet his fate.


Tyler knocked on the Captain's door and waited for permission to enter. When he heard the muffled 'come in Rawlins', he opened the door. He knew the minute he looked at the captain's face that something was terribly wrong and he fought the urge to throw up. God please don't let it be dad.


“Sit down Rawlins.” Captain Grant motioned to a chair in front of his desk. He leaned forward and put his elbows on the table and sighed. “I've got some bad news son. I hate this part of the job but sometimes there's no other way around it.”


Tyler audibly gulped, “It's not my father is it sir?”

Man, my title entry is tied with another on the polls. If I was bad that way I'd say what my title is and have people vote for it, but I'm a fair person, so I won't do that. I wanna win though, so the thought has crossed my mind, but I haven't!! You know what's funny is that I hadn't even told anyone that I entered.Laugh it Up fuzball

Actually the poll closes tonight at midnight. But it looks like we are going to have a tie breaker poll next.

hollie
March 8th, 2008, 07:21 PM
oh well i'll vote again

Dani
March 8th, 2008, 07:22 PM
That's what un-nerves me! A tie breaker.

My opinion, I don't really like the other title because from what I can glean from the information it just doesn't sound like the book, but again it's my opinion.

Liadan
March 8th, 2008, 07:24 PM
