I love Wednesdays on my blog. It's so much fun to see your guesses. And I so enjoy the unusual facts that the authors prepare for me. This week is no exception.
Our featured author was undertipped by Florence Henderson when he worked as a waiter. He says he can play the guitar okay and the ukelele poorly. He once found a novel of his on display in a little bookshop in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
- Entrant must put their guess in a comment on the Write Thinking blog. Commenting on Facebook or Twitter doesn't count toward a chance to win. (At present, commenters are not required to sign in, making it easier for more folks to play.)
- Entrant must have a USA mailing address to be eligible to win a book. (Sorry. Cost of postage outside the US is too prohibitive.)
- The first person to name the featured author correctly wins a Robin Lee Hatcher novel (of Robin's choice). If no one has guessed correctly by Friday morning, there will be no winner for this round.
- If there is a winner, he or she will be announced in an update at the bottom of this post. If the winner fails to contact Robin at her Write Thinking email address (see left sidebar) with his/her mailing address, no prize will be awarded to a runner-up.
- No one who has won a book within one month is eligible to win.
Be sure to check back to this post on Friday to see the answer and to see if you've won.
Update: We have a winner. Mary Hampton was the first to guess James Scott Bell, although not the last. Mary, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your mailing address so that I can send you a book. Jim has also offered to send a book!
