Winners Announced...Yea, Barbara and Cornelia!

Jimmy and Guy, protagonists of What's in a Name?, talk about the Starbucks coffee card giveaway:

Jimmy:  See?  I told you readers would enter to win a coffee card.

Guy: Huh.  Still think we shoulda offered a bottle of Chivas or a case of Flat Tire or something.

Jimmy:  Hey, hey, you can't argue with 1, 591 people.  Coffee's popular.

Guy:  That's how many entered?  Huh.  Guess there're a lot of thirsty people around.

Jimmy:  A lot of connoisseurs of non-alcoholic beverages, you mean.

Guy:  Whatever.  Who won?

Jimmy:  Barbra and Cornelia!  They should be sipping away as we speak.

Guy:  Hope they bought a copy of the book, too.  Then they can come into Stonewall's and tell me all the mistakes I made wooing you.

Jimmy bursts into giggles, muttering "Woo, woo, woo..." and has to take a few deep breaths before he can add, "Congratulations, Barbra and Cornelia!  Enter Stonewall's at your own risk."

Guy pulls Jimmy in for a kiss and they walk away.  Maybe even to drink some coffee.  Maybe.

Thanks again to Will Parkinson of Pride-Promotions for all the wonderful work he did on What's in a Name?  You are the best!

Another Morning with Jimmy and Guy

Somewhere in Northern California:

I heard the shower go on and then nothing for a while.  Guy and I were visiting Crystal’s Many Reviewers and Rebecca Cohen Writes today to promote What’s in a Name? and didn’t have time to waste.

I opened the bathroom door and yelled at Guy, “What’s taking you so long?  What are you doing in there?”


“What?  We don’t have time to wait around,” I protested.  “What are you waiting for?”

“Santa Claus.”

As I thought about what he’d said, he added, “The Easter bunny.”  Another silence, then, "Land shark."

Oh, yeah.  Now I got it.  I shucked my clothes and opened the shower door.

“How about a barista instead?”

“Yeah, that’s what I was waiting for.”

Join Jimmy and Guy (after they get cleaned up and out of the shower) at Crystal’s Many Reviewers and Rebecca Cohen Writes today.  Also, remember to sign up to win a coffee card!

Thank you, Will Parkinson and Pride-Promotions, for making this Remember Me Tour, a trip to remember! 
I can't tell you how much I'm going to miss you between books.  Will will be doing his magic for Redesigning Max this summer when it releases from Dreamspinner Press.  Until then, buy and read all the books he promotes!

Behind the Scenes with Jimmy and Guy

Jimmy Patterson and Guy Stone of What's in a Name? are getting ready for two blog visits today.  Here's what's happening in their kitchen:

What’s that you got in your hand?” Jimmy asked.

Guy looked down, pecked a kiss on Jimmy’s brow, and answered, “Pop Tart.  Why?”

Jimmy frowned and plucked the Pop Tart from Guy’s fingers.  “That’s not a nutritious breakfast for a big guy like you.  We’ll be out visiting a couple of places today.  You’re stomach’s going to be making rude noises while we’re telling people about the book.”

Guy rubbed his midriff, and Jimmy got a lustful glint in his eyes.  Jimmy suddenly slapped Guy’s hand away.

“Nice try, but we’ve got to get serious here.  Or we’re going to be late.”  Jimmy turned and grabbed some cheese and eggs from the fridge.  “Here.  Grate some cheese.  I’m making you an omelet.  I also got some free-trade Nicaraguan dark that we’ll brew in the French press.”

As Guy sat down and started rubbing the gouda chunk against the grater, he asked, “Where we going today?”

“Well, first to Prism Book Alliance.  They’ve got some questions for Pat, so all we have to do is sit and look alert.  And not make any hunger noises.”

“Hey!  I didn’t say I wouldn’t eat a real breakfast,” Guy yelped.

“Then we’re going to Elisa’s blog.  You know, the one with her reviews and ramblings.  Not really sure what’s happening.  We’ll see when we get there.”

When Guy was eating his omelet and toast, Jimmy zipped into the bathroom to get ready.  Then it was Guy’s turn.  By the time Guy got back, the kitchen was clean and Jimmy was munching on something.

“Whatcha got there?” Guy asked, pointing.

“Uh, Pop Tart,” Jimmy answered with a laugh.  “Let’s go!  We’re late.”

Comments about What's in a Name?

Here's what they're saying....  Oh, my!  So many nice words!  Thank you!

From The Novel Approach (5 stars):

This is an absolutely brilliant book. I loved it. Pat Henshaw has written a very funny novella that gave me a taste of her style and left me wanting more.

This is such a fun story; I will re-read it often. The MCs are well developed, and I loved watching them fall in love. It was quick but it felt good, and I know that I will never be bored with the humor and empathy the story is told with. Well done, Pat Henshaw, on writing an original story with lots of room for more. I look forward to the next book in the series.

the witty dialogue, the fun these two men have, the way they connected, and Guy’s ability to pull out some awesome dates was all so perfect and written so well.

This book is tucked away in my favorites to pull out when I need to remember than love can happen for all of us if we look in the right place.

From Queer Town Abbey (4 stars):

Whats in a Name was different, fresh, fun and had no explicit sex.

From Love Bytes Reviews (5 stars):

Pat Henshaw has delivered a wonderful tease! I so want more, more, more! I absolutely loved this short book and can’t wait for more of the story.

From MM Good Book Reviews (5 stars):

This is one pretty damn cool and well-written story.

I really enjoyed the pacing and the cast of characters in this book. This is the type of book you can sit back and just read without thinking too much.

From Molly Lolly (4 1/2 stars):

This book was a fun quick read.

From Kimi-chan Experience (4 stars):

Overall, I really enjoyed this short story and recommend it to anyone willing to suspend their disbelief and smile at a sweet tale of love.

From Bike Book Reviews (5 cups):

If I had to describe this book in one word, (thank goodness I can gush about it more than that), it would be delightful!

Thanks Pat, for this delightful book that makes us giggle and glory in a wonderful love story at the same time!


From Inked Rainbow Reads (5 stars):

This was a perfect weekend cozy read. I loved it from page one, and it hit every one of my sweet spots.

This one absolutely gets my highest recommendation. Everything about it was spot-on. I'm looking forward to reading more of Ms. Henshaw's work.


What’s in a Name? was a sweet, innocent story of finding the right person and the happiness that goes along with that. A feel good, simple story that will leave you with a smile by the last page.
