Trivia Contest Rules

Congrats to James C. for being the first person to answer correctly the two teaser questions from yesterday. The AAR Code of Ethics contains eight rules/sections, and nine Philip K. Dick books or stories have been made into movies and released.

OK, moving on to the Trivia Contest rules: 
  • The questions will be posted at 12:00pm (EST). 
  • Please email me with your answers at info@lyonsliterary.com. Do not post your answers as comments. 
  • Make sure to provide me with a name and working email so I can get back to you in case you win.
  • You can post comments or questions about the contest that do not reveal any answers.
  • There are no extra points for the inclusion of excessive information. 
  • Agents, editors, and other industry professionals are not eligible to win, though they may answer if they like.
  • There will be three winners. Winners are chosen based on amount of questions answered correctly and how quickly you respond. 
  • Questions might have more than one right answer. Provide the answer that you think is best.
  • I will measure how quickly you respond based upon when I receive your email, and not when you send it.
  • Winners can choose one of the three prizes: a query critique and evaluation of your first five pages, an evaluation of your first thirty pages, or a free book from one of my clients (options will be given).
  • I will announce the winners on Friday, October 3rd.
If you haven't noticed yet from the teasers, thematically most of the questions will be about publishing, with a few random exceptions.

OK, let me know if you have any questions. Otherwise, good luck!
