Most folks already know that if you’re planning a murder, you want to make sure the likes of Jane Marple and Hercules Poirot are nowhere to be found once the investigating starts.

Now there’s another name to add to the list, Karen W. Newton (aka karen_w_newton), who saw through more devious deceptions than anyone else during the recent ‘
Where’s the Fib?’ contest.

Karen scored an impressive 10 points (out of a possible 19*)

Four people came in joint 2nd place, with 7 correct guesses. They are:

Rose Lemberg (aka rose_lemberg)

Terri-Lyne DeFino(aka bogwitch64)

Tracy Dickens (aka tracy_d74)

Mike Lawson (aka mtlawson)

*I made sure the folks who supplied four facts and a fib were credited with correctly guessing their own, even if they didn’t answer on the poll – or in the case of one person, gave the wrong answer in the poll. 

I’ll be in touch with Karen about her prize. In the meantime, thanks again for taking part everybody. We’ll play ‘Where’s the Fib?’ again next year, but next up on the contest calendar, The 2010 Meager Puddle of Limelight Award for Best Book Title opens its entry doors on August 16th.

As I like to say,
it's not a lie, it's a gift for fiction...

It was, though next year, I think I'll break it up a bit - that was a loooong entry ;)

The reason Mike and Terri and I all guessed 7 is because we share one brain. :)

Perhaps I should have been a police detective? It was a fun exercise. Everyone has such interesting facets to their lives; it 3was nice of you to elicit the information.

And of course, winning was fun, too!
