Eric Berlin has masterminded the coolest promotion for his new book, The Potato Chip Puzzles. It’s the sequel to his first mystery, The Puzzling World of Winston Breen. He has planned a “Puzzle Party” / blog tour, where puzzlers travel about the kidlitosphere, collecting and solving puzzles and then entering to win some awesome book prizes. Here’s Eric’s explanation of how it’s all going down:
Librarians! Teachers! Booksellers! Parents!
Winston loves to puzzle his friends and classmates, and now he’s got some puzzles for you! Solve the puzzles and submit your answers, and you can win…
– A signed copy of Winston Breen’s latest puzzling mystery, The Potato Chip Puzzles.
– Or the grand prize: Every single one of G.P. Putnam’s Sons Spring 2009 children’s and YA books, plus advance reading copies of numerous Fall 2009 books!
Every day from April 16th to April 22nd, there will be a new puzzle waiting for you on a different blog:
April 16th: A Patchwork of Books
April 17th: Fuse #8
April 18th: Shelf Elf (that’s me!)
April 19th: Books Together
April 20th: Bookshelves of Doom
April 21st: Chicken Spaghetti
April 22nd: Oz and Ends
Go to every blog! Solve every puzzle! Submit your answers by the end of each day to firstname.lastname@example.org. Every day, one randomly drawn correct answer will win a signed copy of The Potato Chip Puzzles!
And save your answers — you’re going to need them to solve the final puzzle on April 22nd. One randomly drawn person who submits the right answer to that puzzle will win not only The Potato Chip Puzzles but over two dozen other books, courtesy of G.P. Putnam’s Sons!
Get ready to start solving! The party begins April 16th!
Those are the basics. So hey… April 16th! That’s today! Head over to the first stop to find the first puzzle and get solving. I’ll see you here on April 18th when I’ll be hosting the party.
