General Knowledge Quiz

And now for our General Knowledge Quiz. Again, there will be 20 questions for this quiz but you will have until 5pm next Tuesday 23rd September to get the answers to us. Please send your answers by email to: dianewriting@gmail.com.

The winner will be drawn from all those with 20 correct answers or, if nobody gets all the answers right, the winner will be drawn from all those with the most correct answers. The winner will be contacted shortly after the closing date, as soon as we have had a chance to go through all the entries, and will also be announced on the blog. We will also publish the answers on the blog after the competition deadline.

The Prize

As this is a General Knowledge Quiz, our prize will be general in nature too, so we’re awarding a £25 John Lewis voucher to the winner. That means you’ll be able to treat yourself to whatever you fancy.

N.B. We welcome overseas attendees and are willing to exchange the voucher for the equivalent in the country of choice if the prizes are won by somebody from overseas.

2) Meet the Author

Now it’s time to find out a bit more about the author with our fun quiz. Don’t forget to send the answers to all of our quizzes by email to: dianewriting@gmail.com. The winner of the Meet the Author Quiz will be drawn from all those with 10 correct answers or, failing that, the winner will be drawn from those with the most correct answers. The deadline for your answers to this quiz is 1pm this afternoon.

We will announce the winner on the blog later this afternoon along with the answers. We’re not expecting anyone to get all the answers right and we realise that a lot of your answers will be guesses. The idea is to have a bit of fun (and maybe a laugh or two at the author’s expense).

If you want to find out more about the author you could sign up to my mailing list by following the link here. I use my mailing list to share details of my new releases, discounted books etc. and will never share your details with any third parties. You might also want to check out my Facebook page at: www.facebook.com/DianeMannionWritingServices.
