The Winners of my Name a Ringdom Contest:

by Josiah Bancroft

First, I want to say thank you to everyone who took the time to conjure up a ringdom name. I received so many fantastic and funny suggestions. I had a very difficult time choosing a winner from so many interesting, well-researched, and clever entries. You’re all wonderful. Thank you.

Now, without further ado… to the winners!

The randomly selected First Place Winner of the Books of Babel (which includes signed copies of the first two books) is Jacob Rhoades for his entry "The Furnace.” 

Since there were 104 entries, there are TWO bonus winners, each of whom will receive a signed copy of Arm of the Sphinx. Those winners are: 

Marc Rasp for “The Cerulean Heights” and Thomas G. for “The Shipyard."

And the Grand Prize Winner whose ringdom name will be included in the final book in the series, and who will receive a signed copy of Senlin Ascends & Arm of the Sphinx, an audiobook of Senlin Ascends, and an original piece of Books of Babel artwork is Christopher for his entry “The Warren.”

And no, I didn’t choose “The Warren” because of my well-documented love of rabbits… though it didn’t hurt.

If you were one of the winners, please send your details and address to If you didn’t win this time, don’t worry, there will be more chances in the future!
