Update! Name the Anabel Axelrod Beta Reader Contest

Hello, Everybody!

Wow–there were some fun, creative names submitted in this contest over the last week! Being a dirty-minded woman, I have to admit it’s tempting to name the new Anabel Axelrod Beta Readers the “MastaBeta’s”, as so kindly proposed by my even dirtier-minded friend. I don’t think that’s as bad as “Vi-brator-Betas”, which she was really pushing for when we were sitting outside in lawn chairs last night at 2:00 am! (It works best to say “Vi-brator-Betas” in a southern accent.) I am also fond of SpankMeBetas, BUT, I have a sneaking suspicion some people may not want to admit they belong to such a group. I want everyone to be PROUD to be associated with me, not slouching and cringing in dark corners.  ;}


Here is a recap of the list of the wonderful entries posted on FB and my blog:
