for correctly guessing
my middle name: Gail
OMG – IT’S A CONTEST!
Yes, it’s true – after a whole year sadly lacking in contests,
I’ve got a ridiculously simple way for one of you to win
a $10 Barnes & Noble Gift Card!
All you have to do is answer this one simple question:
What’s Becke’s middle name?
Send your guess to BeckeMartin@aol.com
In the event of multiple people guessing the right name,
I will draw one winner from the entries.
The deadline for this contest is October 1, 2011.
Winner will be announced on October 5th.
Give it a shot – you might win!
Congratulations to author W.S. GAGER
who is the winner of the Suspiciously Delicious cookbook
and the Magna cum Murder tote bag.
It’s been awhile since I’ve had a contest here, so I’ve got an easy one for this month.
To be included in the drawing, all you have to do is post a comment at
Barnes & Noble’s Mystery Book Club in the next few weeks and MENTION THIS CONTEST.
On December 1, the person whose name I draw will receive
SUSPICIOUSLY DELICIOUS, a cookbook with recipes supplied by mystery authors
& featured at the Magna cum Murder conference. The prize winner will
also receive a black canvas book tote with the Magna cum Murder logo.
WE HAVE A JUNE WINNER!
Winner of the $10 Target Gift Card!
TIME FOR A NEW
All you have to do is post a comment (NOT on the party thread)
at Barnes & Noble’s Mystery Book Club forum and mention this blog.
That will put you in a drawing for a $10 Target Gift Card on June 30!
(To clarify, you’re welcome to post on the “party” thread at B&N’s Mystery,
but only comments on the other threads will count toward the prize drawing.)

New Contest – Prize Drawing!
It’s the Month of Romantic Suspense at Barnes & Noble’s Mystery Book Club Forum!
Yesterday, JENNIFER CRUSIE and BOB MAYER kicked off the event.
Friday’s guest is STELLA CAMERON
Saturday’s guest is HEATHER GRAHAM
Sunday’s guest is KAREN KENDALL
Post a comment on any thread at B&N’s Mystery Book Club
this month and mention that you read about the event here.
Your name will go in the hat, and in a drawing the first week of March
one lucky winner will receive a $10 BARNES & NOBLE Gift Card!
(this was the only one that remotely made me think of romantic suspense!)
We have a WINNER!
Debbie Haupt was the first to guess the only two authors on this list
who WON’T be visiting at B&N’s Mystery Book Club in February: Mary Stewart and Dorothy Eden.
(Although, wouldn’t it be fun if they could have joined us? Both are favorites of mine.)
CONGRATULATIONS, DEBBIE! Your prize is on the way.
Many of you know that under my real name, I moderate the Mystery and Garden Book Clubs at Barnes & Noble.
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I’ve invited a LOT of authors to visit during February’s MONTH OF ROMANTIC SUSPENSE. Even though there are only 28 days in February, there will actually be more than 28 authors visiting throughout the month.
Out of all the authors listed below (which isn’t even a full list of the authors who will visit in Feb.), be the first to find the two who will NOT be visiting B&N’s Mystery board in February, and you will win a $10 Barnes & Noble Gift Card!
E-mail your answers to me: Beckemartin@aol.com — good luck!
