SABLE’S HIGH STAKES WILD WEST TRIVIA GAME
I have had insomnia. I work till about midnight and then I still can’t sleep, so I’ve been reading. I told Ryan yesterday that I wanted us to try our hand at writing historical romance. He was less than amused, but its bearing heavily on my mind and heart. So, I’ve been consuming historical western romances – especially mail order bride stories. I may write about a mail order husband! Or hell, I might just order me an extra one or two.
Anyway, due to my nocturnal obsession, I decided to tease you with my knowledge – or lack there of.
This will be fun. I’m going to put down some questions – and they aren’t easy. Some are multiple choice and some are fill in the blank. And some you have to have read my books, but the first 3 people who email me with all of right answers gets a $10 gift certificate from Amazon.
