Thank you to everyone who voted on their favorite name for Ally’s teddy bear. The votes have been tallied, and we have a clear winner 🙂

Drum roll please . . . .

The teddy bear’s name is Coco!

This name was originally suggested by Jan Grueter of Winchester, Idaho. Congratulations, Jan! You have won an autographed copy of On the Bottom of My Shoe when it’s released (date tbd). I will get your contact information, then will let you know an ETA as soon as I know.

I’ve so enjoyed having all of you be part of the “behind the scenes” process for this book. It livens up the brainstorming and decision-making processes!

Be sure to check back often to keep tabs on what I’m up to –along with what the spunky array of characters I try to keep up with are up to!

Vote for Your Favorite Teddy Bear Name!

It’s voting time!

First, I want to thank everyone who suggested a name for Ally’s teddy bear. The names were very creative and sweet, and it was hard to choose between them.

I chose a top five from the list, and have included them in the survey. Please vote for your favorite name–and invite friends and family to vote, too 🙂 I believe the survey only allows one response per computer, so family members who live in the same house may need to vote on different computers or devices.

Voting is open until midnight on September 14th, 2014.

I can hardly wait to see what name is chosen, and who wins a copy of On the Bottom of My Shoe after the book is completed!
