So, there’s this monster in Cyndere’s Midnight, the sequel to Auralia’s Colors

She’s a nasty piece of work, like something that crawled out of The Dark Crystal or Pan’s Labyrinth: eight arms, a parrot-like beak, and eyes like clusters of eggs. She stands at a cauldron, and dispenses bowls of the worst kind of stew to creatures empowered by an addicting substance there.

I can’t call her “the Dispenser.” People will think of Pez.

She needs a name, or rather, a title.

What should I call her? The contest is simple: If you come up with the name I end up using in the book, you’ll get a free copy of the book when it’s published. You can post your ideas in the comments or just email me.

Contest ends on February 1st.

Be sure you’ve provided me with at least an email address, so I can contact you if you win!
