Debut authors Kelly Meding and Kelly Gay's 2K Quiz Contest!

2K Quiz

As part of our twenty-three day, "Same Name, Same Date, Same Genre – Two Awesome Debuts!" promotional extravaganza, the lovely Rachael has agreed to host this little quiz for us. It's time to test your knowledge and your guessing skills. And yes, there will be prizes!

Written below, in no particular order, are ten statements. Five statements apply to Kelly Gay (The Better Part of Darkness), and five statements apply to Kelly Meding (Three Days to Dead). It's your job to determine which is which. See what you think you know. All entries will be collected and a random drawing made to determine the prize winner.

To enter: In the comments section, please state which numbered statements you believe match up with each Kelly. For example, "Kelly Gay - #A, C, F, I, J. Kelly Meding - #B, D, E, G, H." All commenters will be entered into the drawing, whether your guesses are right or wrong. Once the contest closes, we'll post the correct answers and you can see how well you did.

The prizes: Both Kelly's are offering up signed copies of their novels, The Better Part of Darkness and Three Days to Dead, as well as an additional surprise novel of their choice. So the winner will receive FOUR books total. CAVEAT: The signed copies of our debut novels will be sent when each author receives their Authors Copies from their publisher, which should arrive before official release (it is just not guaranteed).

Bonus: As part of our ongoing promotion, all entries into this contest will be collected and added to the GRAND PRIZE Drawing (as outlined previously on our blogs), to be announced November 24. So by participating in this Quiz, you are eligible not only for the 2K Quiz Prizes listed above, you also gain an entry in the Grand Prize Drawing.

The winner of the 2K Quiz receives not only the Prizes listed above, but also an additional entry into the Grand Prize Drawing (two entries total).

The contest will run Tuesday, November 3 through Monday, November 9. The 2K Quiz winner will be announced Tuesday, November 10.
