Thanks for jumping into Portal B.
Your mission is to use the information below to nominate a fantastic name for a character who stars in my new middle grade series, TIME SQUARE. I’ll pick out the best suggestions and then set up a poll for readers to vote for their favorite name.
The name with the most votes in the poll will be used in the first book of the series, TIME SQUARE | THE SHIFT. But that’s not all. The reader who originally suggested the name will WIN A PAPERBACK EDITION of the new book (once the paperback is released).
The deadline for nominations is 24th February 2014.
Voting on the names will occur 25th-28th February 2014
There’s just four easy steps to nominate your suggestion:

To be determined
Birthday: 1st April
Born: Washington D.C.
Lives: Washington D.C.
He’s a geeky guy from 1930, who’s just doing his job as a sidekick to a selfish, narcissisic boss. Although he is much more intelligent than his boss, he doesn’t have the wealth and needs to work to pay his bills, so he’s the hired help (lower down in the food chain).
He follows orders well, has extreme patience (needs it to tolerate his boss), he never complains and is very loyal. He takes constant criticism from his boss with a grain of salt, and dreams of a better job (away from his current boss).
