Special Guest(s): Ali & Joy! (And me!)

Today, we’re going to play a little game of fact or fiction. I’ve talked about when and how I met Ali and Joy – over twitter, and than in person at RT10 in Columbus, Ohio. Anyway we’ve become really good friends, and keep in close touch. They’re also the reason I’m going to NYC over my birthday (which you know, is also during RWA). Because Ali wanted to do a guest post during her birthday month, I decided to keep the theme running with the three of us… so we’re doing a joint post!

Ali, Joy, and I each wrote six facts, and six “fictions” about ourselves. I mixed them all up, and will list them below. Your task is… to assign them to each person. Which six are my facts, and which six are my fictions. The same for Joy, and Ali. Or at least, you know, which ones are fact, and which statements are fiction. It’s the same concept as “three truths and a lie” – just you know, an even/same number of each.

If it proves too difficult maybe Ali, Joy, and I will provide hints in the comments. Of course, posting answers in the comments somewhat defeats the purpose, so you are to email your answers to: * And because this is kind of crazy, let’s say you get three guesses per person. HOWEVER to keep track… I’d like you to leave a comment each time you send an email.

Why on earth would you want to do this insane thing? Well, why wouldn’t you want to know any of the three of us better? 😉 But really – there are prizes. Open internationally!

Ali is offering a $25 GC to Amazon.com… or, if you’re international, up to $25 in books at The Book Depository.

Joy’s throwing out for those in the USA:
Addicted to You by Bethany Kane & Romance Trading Card Package
Demons Prefer Blondes by Sidney Ayers
Fallen by Michelle Hauf

Or if you’re International:
Books 1 & 2 of The Harmless Series (e-book)
A Little Harmless Sex & A Little Harmless Pleasure by Melissa Schroeder

And me? Well, I’m going to offer up a kindle book. Of some sort. I’m actually still thinking about it. To offer one person a prize? (Forewarned I don’t like agency pricing and don’t support it…) Or to offer maybe 5 random people a novella? Giving them a choice between a few of the indie ones out there? We’ll see. Also mine is a bit different because I’ll be giving my prize out to commenter[s].

Anyway, all three of us are offering prizes.

I took piano lessons for about eight years.

Each car I’ve owned was picked by another person… because I don’t much care what I drive as long as it gets from point A to point B.

I’ve never gone skiing.

I do not pack until the night before a trip… or in a couple instances, an hour before I have to head out the door… makes things interesting, lol.

One of the ladies here once gave me a tequila shot… it was so strong I actually couldn’t breathe for a moment there.

I was treated to a public humiliation & got a spanking one year for my birthday (in a bar in NYC).

And that’s all of them! So remember – email your answers to *. We’ll keep this open for *TWO WEEKS. And you get three tries. Also – authors, you’re welcome to enter, and I hope you do! If you don’t want any of these prizes we can figure out something else – like I’ll feature you on my blog or something. Yeah?

Anyway, this is another part of birthday-palooza, so yay! Also, feel free to ask questions in the comments. Who knows – one of us might answer them! 😉
