Jill Lynn!

So glad you dropped in. I can't announce names yet because then others would know who answered correctly...next week the first round of names will be listed as to who answered right and all those names will go into a hat.

The following week a name will be drawn and that person will be the grand winner of the free book!

So, come back next Sunday and see if your name is on the list for the final round of the contest.

Judi's book is AWESOME and worth the visit!

Liza said...

Hawk,

I've been working like crazy so I could visit with family last week and take my oldest niece, who graduates next week, to Chicago for her graduation present. We fly out next Thursday and I've already gotten tickets to a play, tickets to see the Harry Potter exhibit and now I'm trying to reserve dinner at The Chop House. All is great right now, but I've missed being around. I still have 2 books to blog about on my blog, and should get it done during Lost tonight.

Cecile said...

So please tag-a-long all ya' want and allow me ta' take ya' on a fine journey...I talk about a lot of odd things like UFO, Faeries, Ghost and life in general. And every now and then I do a give away like now...speaking of that...what are your answers to the test...and just a wee hint....don't pick me friend Lea's answers, if ya' know what I mean. {8-)
She wasn't really feelin' too well that day. She's a bit off. LOL
