A Giveaway: Guess My Protagonist's Name (Major Hint Included)

THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED. 
THE WINNER AND MY PROTAGONIST'S NAME HAVE BEEN ANNOUNCED HERE.

Unless you've read an early draft of In the Shadow of Blackbirds, you don't yet know my main character's name. In fact, up to this point I've been secretive about all of my characters' names to build suspense before Amulet Books reveals the official cover blurb.

However...seeing as though it's Friday the 13th, I've decided to celebrate my upcoming YA ghost tale by running a contest. It involves you answering a question:

Can you guess my protagonist's name?

A major hint:
Her mother named her after a 
famous author from the 1800s.

NEW! 
Second major hint:
Her mother named her after the author of a 
famous HORROR novel from the 1800s.
(You may enter again if you guessed before with only the first clue.)

Here are my rules:

1. Enter the giveaway using the form below.

2. The first person to send the correct answer will win two handcrafted blackbird bookmarks, a signed bookplate featuring AN EXCLUSIVE LOOK at a line from In the Shadow of Blackbirds, and a blank notebook with a cover containing a beautiful illustration of my character's real-life namesake.

One of the prizes: two handcrafted bookmarks.
3. If the winner also guesses my protagonist's last name, he or she will win a $25 Amazon gift card in addition to the other prizes.

4. The contest will run until a winning entry is received.

5. Please do not enter if you've already read the novel. More giveaways will follow.

Good luck!

The contest is now closed. Thank you for entering!
