Thank you so much for the great response.

The correct answers are:

1) No. of male members in the Holloway Pack:

7 – as the Holloway PACK is made up of more than just the three Holloway men. The Larsen’s are also members of the pack.

2) My two favourite quotes from the book:

“My name’s Sean, Jem. I’m Sean.” or “Welcome back, Jem.”

3) The name of my novella (sequel to Darkness & Light):




Congratulations, Joanne.

  1. Couldn’t answer the questions but i did read your book buzzer. I wish you every success today have a LOVELY TIME.

    Best wishes,
    Katy Walters .xx Phobic Dawn.

    1. Thanks, Katy. The answers are easy to find if you click on the links, and there’s ten days to find them. 🙂 Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate it. 🙂

  2. Well I can hardly wait until I can figure out how to download my first book into my BlackBerry PlayBook. I’m going to do that later today. The description on Amazon intrigued me from the first sentence. Then I read a review that indicated it was a total page turner and she wanted more, more, more.

    I’ll have to break away from our movie reviews to do some reading, but it looks like it will be so worthwhile. I wish you all the best with this book Julie AND with many more to come. May the mega-star fairy hit you with her wand.

    Live and Love in JOY……S>

  3. Jo, I was going to count your entry, but it would be more helpful if you resent, so I can just count through top to bottom from my Contest folder, without having to remember where you came in at originally. Cheers. 🙂

  4. Ahhhhhh! Already bought the book…and I have precisely 2 days, 4 hours, 28 minutes and 46 seconds for it to arrive. But I’m keeping myself busy until then… Will give the questions a go in the meantime… just cuz I need to know the answers. 🙂

    1. Yes, give it a go. Just think you’d get a signed copy for freeeeee, with no postage costs ….. hehehehehe 🙂

      And how can you possibly have it timed down to the last sentence? hahahahahaha 😉

  5. I got a Kindle for my birthday yesterday 😀 and popped its Kindlecherry with a copy of Darkness and Light. I’ll be blogging about it soon!

  6. Winner of the signed copy of Darkness & Light is JOANNE STOKES.
