First off, there were no winners for So Over It #22. The answer is N. Sheffield Avenue in Chicago. The rooftops overlook Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. The next contest is something very special. As you are about to know, Summer of Long Knives, my next novel, will be coming out in September. But… Continue reading Win A Signed Manuscript Copy of Summer of Long Knives
No winner for last week’s contest (sigh). The correct answer was the University Bridge connecting the University District to Eastlake in Seattle.

This street corner was much in the news a couple of… Continue reading So Over It Contest #15: Street Corner Edition

(You could do the same thing, by the… Continue reading You May Already Be A Winner, If Your Name is Beth.

Now, on to the new. There is a hint for this one. 150 years ago this week, something happened at this place that would change… Continue reading So Over It Contest #6: Civil War Edition
You still have 24 hours to guess the location in the picture below, and in doing so win an e-book copy of Dismantle the Sun (if you’re the first, that is). So guess already.
The location I’ve chosen for the 5th iteration of this contest has a personal meaning for me, but I don’t expect anyone to guess it. (It’s actually a pretty good story, which I’ll tell if asked nicely.) Same rules as always: be the first to identify the location and its significance and receive a free… Continue reading So Over It #5
