Kitten Kongratulations

Kongratulations to Marjorie R., who won in week 10 of the Doing Max Vinyl Trivia Contest with her correct answer that Ike and Tranny shared a sixpack of beer between them. Way to go, Marjorie!! Marjorie wins a $5 Amazon gift card and now has yet another entry in the grand prize drawing at the end of the contest. That’s when the $200 grand prize Amazon gift card, the $100 second prize gift card, or the $50 third prize card will be awarded.

Right, and HOW can you win those big prizes? Simple enter the contest with a correct answer in any of the 30 weeks. Every CORRECT answer equals one entry in the big drawing at the end. And every correct answer gives you very good chances to win the $5 weekly prize. Imagine winning it two weeks in a row! Way to go, Marjorie …


And now it’s time for the week 11 Doing Max Vinyl trivia contest question: Which brand of perfume does Tris wear? Yep, it’s a doozy, and you’ll find it in parts 35, 36 or 37 of the serialization HERE on Venture Galleries. I like this question, because it points to one of Max’s character quirks — he has a very sensitive nose. Smells awaken strong feelings in him and even stimulate him to take action, sometimes recklessly. Happy reading!

For those who are new to the contest, all you have to do is read the parts of the serial mentioned above to find the answer. It’s a way of reading Doing Max Vinyl for free. Once you’ve got the answer, send me a mail on trivia@frederickleebrooke.com. The deadline for the week 11 question is Sunday, October 20th at 12 midnight PST, so hop on over to the serial now.

Time marches on — my kittens are getting bigger (you were wondering about that picture, weren’t you?) Plus, in a few weeks I will be announcing the first book of my new series. My editor is going through it now with a fine-toothed comb. Let’s hope it doesn’t come back in tatters, drenched in red ink … in the meantime, let’s see if you can win some cash money just by doing a little reading!


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.
