Name the House Contest

Terri Main, author of the forthcoming mystery/science-fiction cozy Dark Side of the Moon, is running a contest on her Facebook fan page. In the novel, set on the moon at the end of the 21st century, lunar residents live in underground communities which look like small towns. The main character of the book, Carolyn Masters, a professor of history at the local university, has a new house. The house is automated with an artificial intelligence unit to manage the household chores. The unit is programmed to work best if it has a name.

To quote Carolyn, “After all this, I also have to come up with a name for my house.” You can help her. Go to http://www.facebook.com/darksidenovel . There is a status post where you can add a comment that includes your name for the house. There is also a note in the notes section where you can leave your suggestion. A bit more about Carolyn. She teaches 20th century history with an emphasis on pop culture. Many allusions appear in the book to that. She is also a psychologist and former FBI profiler.

The contest is open until May 20. The winner will win a $20 Amazon gift certificate, and of course, bragging rights for naming a house.

Note: You will need to join the fan page to post a comment. That means clicking the LIKE button at the top of the page.
