Book Launch Day Trivia! *New Winners!*


Yall thought it was over didn’t ya? Nope, Launch Week is still on and popping.

Now, we have a new winner to the following question. I have let it stay up all week to give more people a chance to answer. The question was:

Stella’s life takes place during many historical events, one of which being the depression. Although the United States had experienced several depressions before the stock market crash of October 1929, none had been as severe. How long did this Great Depression last?

a. 5 years
b. 20 years
c. 10 years
d. None of the Above

We had some great answers! According to Google, the depression was from 1929-1939. BUT historically, The Great Depression actually lasted from 1929 to the early 1940s. The answer is D, none of the above.

Congratulations to: 1010buterflie at for answering our question correctly! Please give me your name and mailing address by sending an email to: for your FREE Copy of Beyond The Colored Line! Whoop!

Here’s a good website with a timeline of the depression. Knowledge is power.

The Winning Letter

So Monday I set up a poll asking you guys to help me to choose what I should do this week in preparation of launch day, based on what sounded like the most fun. Your choices were:

a). Hold a 3 Day Giveaway (8/19 Wed-8/21 Fri)
b). Hold a 1 Day Giveaway the day of Launch (8/24)
c). Create a Contest with one grand prize winner announced on Launch Day
d). A and C

And the winning letter is (drum roll please):

C. Create a Contest with one grand prize winner announced on Launch Day.

I thought sure A would win!

To spice this up a bit, I have decided to do a Trivia Day instead of a contest to give more people a chance to win lots of FREE prizes. This gotta be fun!

Thanks guys! Stella will see you all Launch Day with the Grand Trivia Event.


Its the countdown! 5 Days to Go!
