We have a winnah!

We have a winner of last week's blog post: Male or female author? You vote!

We had a couple of people to post the correct genders, but JJ was the first person to post:

1: Male (Stephen White, In Harm's Way)

2: Female (Carla Damron, Keeping Silent)

3: Female (Jan Burke, Bones)

4: Male (James Crumley, Hostages)

5: Female (Joyce Carol Oates, The Skull)

6: Male (Robin Cook, Coma)

7: Female (Christa Faust, Money Shot)

So JJ, if you'll send me your mailing address, I'll send you the Indie tee shirt. I will send everyone who posted a bookmark, if you'll send me your mailing address to keslilley at yahoo dot com.

If I made any errors in the excerpts or entries, I blame deadline exhaustion!


  1. Dang! I was so close...yet wrong!

    How will I ever show my face at the Alaska Psychic Conference again?

  2. Basil, you were so close! I wouldn't have guessed nearly so well if I hadn't picked the excerpts myeself (grin).

  3. Congrats, JJ! And dang it, I barely got any of them right...

  4. "Oh, no! I only got a couple of them right!" she said, hanging her head in shame.

    She walked away with tears glistening in her eyes. She would never be able to face her friends or anyone in the writing community ever again. How could she have been so stupid?

    Congratulations, JJ!


  5. Cynde, love the reaction para!! It's a totally female-prose response (grin).

  6. I got one. Freakin' one lousy passage right. Bollocks.

  7. Very cool. Thanks Kathryn.

    Perhaps my previous career helped in picking the right ones. More likely luck though.

    Happy for the prize to be donated to a good cause over there.
