Hey everybody! Eric Beetner and I—co-hosts of the Writer Types crime and mystery podcast—are very excited about our inaugural “Crime Quiz LIVE!” event THIS SATURDAY at the amazing Book Show LA in Los Angeles.
Everybody in attendance will have the chance to win prizes (aka “books”)! There will be beer and other liquids. Did I mention it’s FREE?
Here’s how the Crime Quiz will work:
- 10 Fast Rounds—Each contestant is asked 1 question per round.
- 4 Categories to choose from each round.
- 15 seconds to answer each question.
- 3 “Cheats” per contestant…just to keep things interesting.
