Winning Is Easy

Enter my Goodreads giveaway for a chance to win a signed paperback copy of Collateral Damage. This giveaway ends August 30, 2013 (check the giveaway page for the exact time).

Reading books for free has never been easier. Stop in at Venture Galleries to read the serialization of my first book Doing Max Vinyl. Three days a week they post another part of a chapter – sort of like the old days, in newspapers, only you don’t have to buy the newspaper!

Did I mention you can win a $5 weekly prize just by answering the trivia question from the Doing Max Vinyl posts on Venture Galleries? First read the trivia question, and the latest one can be read here, then read the posts to find the answer. Not only do you get a free read, you have a chance to win money.

Each correct submission to the weekly trivia question additionally gets you an entry in the trivia contest grand prize drawing which will take place at the end of the serialization. First prize: a $200 Amazon gift card. Second prize a $100 card. Third prize $50 a card.

May I remind you that submissions to the trivia contest must be sent to a special email address to be valid? Good luck to you. Enter both contests today and let it be your lucky day.


Frederick Lee Brooke launched the Annie Ogden Mystery Series in 2011 with Doing Max Vinyl and followed with Zombie Candy in 2012, a book that is neither about zombies nor sweets. The third mystery in the series, Collateral Damage, appeared in 2013. Saving Raine, the first book in Fred's entirely new series, The Drone Wars, appeared in December 2013, and was followed by its sequel, Inferno, in June 2014.

A resident of Switzerland, Fred has worked as a teacher, language school manager and school owner. He has three boys and two cats and recently had to learn how to operate both washing machine and dryer. He makes frequent trips back to his native Chicago.

When not writing or doing the washing, Fred can be found walking along the banks of the Rhine River, sitting in a local cafe, or visiting all the local pubs in search of his lost umbrella.
