Contest: Mary Russell Word Ladder
One of the things I’ve discovered, as I’ve become more involved in the web, is that the community of people devoted to my books is a richly varied and wildly talented one. By way of example, “Laidee Marjorie,” a regular on the Virtual Book Club, loves to create puzzles.
So the contest for this week’s Fifteen Weeks of Bees giveaway is a word ladder Marjorie made for us, taking all you busy bees from HIVES to HONEY, one word-rung at a time. Work it here and email us your solution to Bees AT laurierking DOT com. (Please replace the words AT and DOT with their respective symbols. This is to avoid spambots picking up the email address.) We’ll make a drawing from the correct submissions, and you could win a signed set of the first four Russell and Holmes novels from Picador.
(The complete list of contests and prizes is here.)
AND: Did you see Mary Russell’s blog today? The third chapter of her account of how she came to send her memoirs to yours truly will also appear here on Mutterings tomorrow. I hope you’re enjoying it.
