Thanks to everyone who entered my Name That Owl contest, which celebrated the release of the BLACK CITY paperback! I had such a hoot reading all the owlmazing names (okay, okay, no more puns, I promise).
It was really hard to choose a name, as they were all so imaginative, but after much umming and ahhhing I finally picked one. So, the bit you’ve all been waiting for.
The winning name is….
Congratulations to Jassie for suggesting the name! The prize pack will be on its way to you shortly.
Why I picked this name
Nox is the Latin translation for Nyx, the Greek goddess of the night. It’s also a spell in the Harry Potter books (it’s the counter charm to the Lumos spell. When cast, it extinguishes all the lights), and as everyone knows, I am OBSESSED with Harry Potter! So the name really appealed to me.
Archer, Archimedes, Albus Dumbledornithologist, Blanix, Buckfish, Butternut, Dr Whoooo, Fawkes, Hedgehog, Hero, Ludwig, Nash, Owl Love You Forever, Pimpernel, Plop, The Scarlett Feather.
Thanks to everyone who took part. I’ll be running another giveaway next month to celebrate the launch of PHOENIX, which is out on 4 June, so there will be more chances to win great prizes!
