This little cuddly fella keeps me company through the many hours I sit here being creative. Up till now I've been calling him/her "Lonely Bear". I think it is time he/she had a real name, one that reflects his/her real character. To this end, starting today, I am running a competition to name said bear. The winner of the competition will receive a signed copy of the latest book in the DCI Buchanan series titled, The Jockey's Wife. To enter, simply post your name suggestion . In the matter of a tie, I will award up to five first places.
