Doing Max Vinyl Contest Ending Soon

Elves write these questions while I sleep, you know. They also give away the prize money … so congratulations to Marjorie R! She answered the latest Doing Max Vinyl Trivia question correctly. Bob Olson had a guitar in the tent.

Everyone who submitted a right answer is automatically entered in the grand prize drawing, which is right around the corner, folks. Marjorie R. wins a $5 Amazon gift card for having her entry picked from among all the right answers this time.

But don’t go away, because here’s the new question: According to Annie Ogden, which animal definitely does not conduct electricity? You will find the answer in part 82, 83 or 84 right here on Venture Galleries. Send your answer by Sunday, February 23 at 12 midnight PST to trivia@frederickleebrooke.com.

Reminding, not nagging, I always say. What’s the big jackpot here? The elves will pick from all the correct entries received during the life of the contest and choose a Grand Prize winner ($200 Amazon gift card), a 2nd prize winner ($100 Amazon gift card) and a third prize winner ($50 Amazon gift card). Nothing fancy – just a pile of cash money …

Up on YouTube there’s a new sensation: my new video trailer for Saving Raine (The Drone Wars: Book 1). Let me know how you like it!

Until next time – enjoy the trailer, enjoy reading Doing Max Vinyl for free, and if we don’t talk till then – Happy Valentine’s 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.
