Match the Author Contest!

 The Craftie Ladies of Romance are hosting another Match the Author Contest!

Match the authors to their four special items and leave your answers in the comments section of today’s blog, along with your email address so we can contact you, if you win.

  2. What a great prize. I know which one mine is of, course. And I recognize a few others, but it's fun trying to guess the ones I don't know.

    Thanks for organizing this, Debby.

  3. LOVE it!! I didn't send a pic because I thought mine would be way too predictable, but wow... I see I have many sister writers who have the same stuff I do!

  4. Ooh, Ooh! I know who two of the authors are. One wrote that Writer's Prayer, hangs out in Seekerville and hands out the prayer card at conferences so many can benefit from it. I met the other lovely lady back at RWA Nationals in 2008 when we were Golden Heart Pixie pals and am so happy that we're both writing for LIH now.

    Must do some thinking to figure out the others...

  13. Yes, this was SUPER fun :-) I switched Leann and Winnie, not surprising because I was only about 95% sure of which was which...lol!! Since Leann mentioned Louisiana I thought I had her pegged correctly :-D Sneaky, real sneaky...haha! Rhonda, you did a great job too! It was hard and you had to do a lot of research on these authors. Thanks for the fun contest ladies! Hope to see more in the near future...not necessarily guess the author, but more fun contests! And a huge THANK YOU to all the fantastic participating authors, you ladies ROCK!! I will enjoy reading each and every book :-)
