Guess the Author - Round One

So we're going to have four rounds today of GUESS THE AUTHOR. Today's game is a little harder than yesterday's in that these lines are not likely to be in the excerpts you've seen so far.

Match the correct Author to the following lines. The first four people to come up with the correct match win their choice of ebook from any one of our backlists BARRING the new stories in this anthology. ;-)

1 - He couldn't wait to be out in the city again, was even looking forward to queuing for Gomorrah, sharing that weird buzz of anticipation with the other clubbers as they waited to be let in, taunted by the fat, driving beats that escaped every time the bouncers opened the doors to let someone in or out.

2 - He smiled and shook his head, a right jolly old elf. If I’d had an eject button on the dash, he’d have sailed straight into the trees.

3 - It was snowing. Every kid in X had by this time given up on a white Christmas, but here it came: a spiraling flurry of glitter, orange and silver and diamond blue as each spinning fragment caught the light.

4 - My eyes jerked open and I sat bolt upright. A dark, burly figure filled the driver’s window and a Fair Isle-gloved hand was banging on the glass.



Your possible choices are:
Josh Lanyon
Harper Fox
LB Gregg
Joanna Chambers

Answer in the comment section below.

You can only win once, but you can enter all four rounds. The next round is over at LB Gregg's house. Don't trip over the reindeer sleeping on her lawn.

  18. By the way, my Comfort and Joy compadres tell me that they are not hearing from their winners, so be sure to check back, folks! I know there is a surplus of free ebooks this time of year, but there is not a surplus of quality free ebooks, so don't miss out.
