Bandita Booty ... and the winner of the best beer name is ...

by Anna Sugden

Thank you all for the very warm welcome you gave Anna Lucia and Keir, the uber-sexy interrogator hero of her book Run Among Thorns. I know they both really enjoyed their time in the Lair (even if it was kind of hard to tell with Kier because he was keen to get going with Jenny!). Hopefully they will come back and visit us next year, when Anna's next book Dangerous Lies is out, and Kier can update us on how he and Jenny are doing.

Anyway, without further ado, on to the winners of Anna's name the beer contest. And the winner is ...

Christine Wells with Sweaty Socks!
There’s a scene in Dangerous Lies where Alan and Kier end up on a friend’s yacht after a tense chase across Algeria. Exhausted and thirsty, they check out the tiny fridge and find real ales... and now the beer they’ll pick and remark on will be Sweaty Socks...

And the runner up is ...

Joan’s Golden Rooster Ale! – Anna knows it’s a Bandita name, but she could really see an Ale with that name!

As I was so impressed with all the creativity - I'm giving away an extra prize ... to the teetotaller who came up with some storming beer names *grin*. A copy of Run Among Thorns goes to Louisa Cornell!

Please send your snail mail addresses to me at Anna at annasugden dot com and I'll pass them on to Anna Lucia.

Congrats to all our winners ... especially Christine. Can't wait to see your 'name' in print!

Wow, cool bananas! I must say the beer-naming contest was pure genius! Or perhaps pure Guinness? Congratulations, Christine, Joan and Louisa!

Louisa Cornell said...

Hooray!!! Thank you Anna Louise Lucia! I can't wait to read this book! And when the next one comes out I will be snorking every time I read Sweaty Socks Beer!! Genius, Christine! And of course I have a soft spot for Golden Rooster Ale as well. Makes a Rooster Mom proud! (sniff)
