The Big Announcement - A Multiple Book Giveaway!

In honor of the authors who gave of their time to answers questions for my Q&As this summer, I'm giving away some copies of their books. The books I will be giving away are:

Michael Koryta: Sorrow's Anthem and Envy the Night
Alafair Burke: Judgment Calls, Missing Justice, and Close Case
Lisa Unger: Beautiful Lies and A Sliver of Truth

Each book will be a drawing of its own, so there will be seven drawings. You may enter as many of the drawings as you like, but you may only win ONE so we will have seven different winners. There's a hitch, though - you have to answer a question about the author to be eligible. Here are the questions for each book:

Sorrow's Anthem: How old was Michael Koryta when he WROTE (not published) Tonight I Said Goodbye?

Envy the Night: Name two authors who influenced Michael's writing.

Judgment Calls: Where did Alafair Burke graduate from law school?

Missing Justice: There was a serial killer in Wichita, Kansas while Alafair was growing up. What was the acronym the man claiming responsibility for the murders gave himself?

Close Case: You probably all know who Alafair’s father is and what he does, but what was Alafair’s mother’s occupation?

Beautiful Lies: Name one place Lisa Unger lived as a child.

A Sliver of Truth: Where did Lisa meet her husband?

So here's how it will work. You need to SEND ME AN E-MAIL for EACH book you are interested in winning with the answer to the book's assigned question - so if you want to enter all seven contests, you're sending me seven e-mails. Please enter the book title you are entering for in the RE: line. I'm turning off the comments on this post so people don't post the answers there. All the answers can be found at the respective authors' websites if you don't already know what they are. You can click on the authors' names above to link directly to their sites. You can also receive an additional entry if you post about this giveaway on your blog/site, link to this post, and include the link to your post in your e-mail to me, BUT you can't give away the answers on your site!! No cheating! :) Don't have a blog? Then e-mail a minimum of five people, telling them about the contest and copy me on the e-mail.

You can send your e-mail responses to forbyone(at)yahoo(dot)com. If you have any questions, just e-mail them to me. The deadline for responses will be midnight August 4th.

Good luck and happy reading!!

**Note: I'd love for this contest to be open to the entire world, but due to shipping costs, I can only open the contest to people with mailing addresses within the United States. Sorry!
