Scarecrow Names

ScareCROWA couple weeks ago I attended Pure Spec, which isn’t especially noteworthy because I go to Pure Spec every year. What is noteworthy, however, is that this was the first year I got a table in the vendor room, which made this a whole different rodeo. It was interesting to see the con from the perspective of a vendor rather than a panelist or attendee. Interesting and overall positive.

Our* table looked awesome. You’ll have to take my word for this because I managed to forget my camera both days. But it did.

I met some people.

I sold more than enough books to pay for the table.

I got to chat with some friends.

It was great.

My favourite reactions to our table were:

“Wow. That’s a lot of anthologies.” – this from people who didn’t know me

“Wow. I didn’t know you had this many books!” – this from people who did know me

“Can I take a picture of your scarecrow?” – this from people with awesome taste in scarecrows

About the scarecrow. As you can see from my picture of him, he’s a cute little dude. Both a crow and a scarecrow, I feel like he might be a little bit conflicted about his identity, but I love him just the same. I brought him along to Pure Spec and asked people to suggest names for him. Here are some of the suggestions:

  • Jeck
  • Old Joe Croaker
  • Ostif (Outstanding in his field)
  • Bob the Destroyer of Worlds
  • Edgar Allen
  • Dave
  • Tobias, Traitor to all Crowkind
  • Dreadbeak
  • Albert (Albie)
  • Biety
  • Beaker
  • Peckerhead
  • Corey

Which one is your favourite? Or, if none of them, what would you name him?

Speaking of scarecrows, just a quick reminder that the sale for Scarecrow, the anthology, ends on the 8th 🙂


November 8th if you buy SCARECROW at the World Weaver Press website and use code SCARE at checkout you will get 50% off the cover price–for both Ebooks and Paperbacks!

*Jo came with me and set-up and ran the table with me 🙂
