Congratulations to the winners of the Southwestern mystery contest. Sandy G. from North Plainfield, NJ will receive C.C. Harrison’s Picture of Lies. Lori Hines’ The Ancient Ones will go to Pat R from Kansas City, KS.
This is the last contest of 2011. Between Thanksgiving and New Year’s, I do my best not to go to the post office. But, I’m offering autographed mysteries to end the end by two of the biggest names in traditional mysteries. You can try to win for yourself, or give a book as a gift if you win.
The first is a Christmas mystery, Carolyn Hart’s Merry, Merry Ghost. Bailey Ruth Raeburn, a spirit, has a new assignment from Wiggins and Heaven’s Department of Good Intentions, protect a little boy, foil a murderer, and save Christmas. It’s too bad everyone in the little boy’s family had a motive to kill his grandmother.
Or, you could win an autographed book by one of my favorite authors. I’m giving away a copy of Louise Penny’s The Cruelest Month. The villagers of Three Pines decide to celebrate spring with a séance at the old Hadley house. When one of the group dies, Chief Inspector Armand Gamache brings in his team to determine if it was a natural death or murder.
Do you want to win Merry, Merry Ghost or The Cruelest Month? You can enter to win both, but I’ll need separate entries. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your subject heading should read either “Win Merry, Merry Ghost” or “Win The Cruelest Month.” Please include your name and mailing address in the body of the email. Entries from the U.S. only please.
The contest ends at 6 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 25, when I’ll pick the winners using a random number generator. Good luck!
