Free ARCs & A New Trivia Challenge

Today is the second day of the BEA. While most of us can't be there, there is a great new site I found while tweeting around (a new expression. Feel free to use it) called Armchair BEA. This is a site for those of us who want to experience the BEA from the comfort of our own armchairs--or, we didn't have the money to go. You can check them out here: Armchair BEA.

Since my Indy Publisher (White Whisker) can't send me to BEA to sit in a booth with other authors and sign ARCs, I will be sitting right here, signing three ARCs of my new YA novel, Boyfriend From Hell, to send to three lucky readers in the mail. All you need to do to enter is write in the comments below: "I want the free ARC" or something like that. This contest is open only to those of you living in the U.S. or Canada. The only other thing I ask is that if you have already won an ARC in the cover contest that you don't enter this one. That's it! I will do a random drawing on Monday, and post the winners here next Tuesday, May 31st. The ARCs are not available yet, but I expect to get some at the end of the week.

Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge #7

I haven't had a trivia challenge since February. But with the summer Blockbuster movie season starting I thought it would be fun to do a summer blockbuster movie challenge.

While we call it the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge, you don't have to enter today. You have 6 days to enter. The drawing closes Sunday evening. So everyone has plenty of time to come up with the correct answer. But just one entry per person will be accepted. The winner will receive a free $10 Amazon gift card. On Monday I will draw a winner from all the correct answers, and post the winner here next Tuesday. Are you ready for the challenge?

In what famous summer blockbuster did a character say: "I didn’t kill my wife!"
And who was the character?

I think this one is easy, but to some of you they're all easy. By the way, you have to answer both questions correctly to win.
As a reminder, there are a few things you will need to do to qualify. You need to do four of the five things listed below:

1) Be a registered follower of this blog, or
2) ...follow me at http://www.evanlowe.com/
3) leave a comment on this blog in the comment section on any of my posts anytime during the week of the current challenge.
4) send your answer to me at info@evanlowe.com
5)mention the Hollyweird Tuesday Trivia Challenge either on your blog or in a tweet the week of the current challenge.
Do 1 +3,4&5, or 2 +3 ,4&5 and you are entered to win. Remember, you must do four things to win.

Two contests, two chances to win. Thanks for participating.
