$50 Gift Card

I will be giving away a $50 Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or iTunes gift card to one lucky winner to celebrate the release of my novella, The Lost Great Dane. There are two ways to enter the contest:

  1.  Preorder The Lost Great Dane – forward a copy of your preorder email to info@blblair.com as proof and then enter the email address you used in the rafflecopter entry.
  2. Complete all the puzzles to find the name Alex gave to the lost Great Dane and then enter the name in the rafflecopter entry.
You may use both options to enter and increase your chance of winning.

The book is only $0.99. You may preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks, Kobo, or Smashwords.

The puzzles are in the posts below. Read the information for each puzzle to find the letters you need to unscramble the name. After completing each puzzle, you will have one of the five letters needed. Sort the five letters into a name. If you need a hint, look at the hint post.

Have Fun and Good Luck!
