Big Prizes Soon – Doing Max Vinyl Trivia Contest

You’ve been waiting patiently, and only a few more weeks till the contest ends with a bang — $200 in Amazon cash to the grand prize winner, $100 in Amazon cash to the 2nd prize winner, and $50 to the third place winner. Every correct entry over the life of the contest increases your chances at one of the grand prizes. And you get to see pictures like this showing my cat in her favorite resting place.

Our winner for last week’s question was Teresa H., who answered the question correctly, which town in Northern Illinois is Bob Olson from? — the answer being Sycamore.

Usually we get several people sending in the right answer, so congrats Teresa! You win a $5 Amazon gift card. And the new question is: What is the name of Max Vinyl’s attorney? You will find the correct answer in part 104, 105 or 106 right here on Venture Galleries, which the Doing Max Vinyl serial is hosted, along with many other fine books. Please send your answer by midnight PST on Sunday, April 20 to to be eligible for the weekly prize and the big prizes at the end.


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.
