Name Those Authors!: The Answers from June 13, 2013

Welcome to Name That Author!, a literary trivia game. We start by giving you a requirement, and you name authors who fit that requirement. When there’s a prize at stake, randomly selected participants who submit correct answers win.

Dance of the Red Death Bethany Griffin CoverThis round of Name Those Authors! is sponsored by Dance of the Red Death by Bethany Griffin.

Araby Worth’s city is on fire. Her brother is dead. Her best friend could be dead soon. Her mother is a prisoner; her father is in hiding. And the two boys who stole her heart have both betrayed her. But Araby has found herself, and she is going to fight back. Inspired by one of Edgar Allan Poe’s most compelling stories, “The Masque of the Red Death,” Bethany Griffin has spun two sultry and intricate novels about a young woman who finds herself on the brink of despair but refuses to give in. Decadent masquerades, steamy stolen moments, and sweeping action are set in a city crumbling from neglect and tragedy. A city that seeps into your skin. Dance of the Red Death is the riveting conclusion to the dark and fascinating saga of an unforgettable heroine.
