To celebrate the release of Jessica Bell’s latest novel, WHITE LADY, she is giving away an e-copy (mobi, ePub, or PDF) to the first person to correctly guess the one true statement in the three statements below. To clarify, two statements are lies, and one is true:

The following is a line from the book:

  1. A blood smear frames the door handle.
  2. Unlike my husband, who kills out of necessity, I kill for the mere thrill of seeing fear in my victim’s eyes.
  3. I jam my fingers down my throat, convulse and heave as if I were vomiting the intestine of a cow

What do you think? Which one is true? Write your guess in the comments, along with your email address. Comments will close in 48 hours. If no-one guesses correctly within  48 hours, comments will stay open until someone does.

Want more chances to win? You have until October 31 to visit all the blogs where Jessica will share a different set of true and false statements on each one. Remember, each blog is open to comments for 48 hours only from the time of posting.

If you win, you will be notified by email with instructions on how to download the book.

*This novel contains coarse language, violence, and sexual themes.

‹Sonia yearns for sharp objects and blood. But now that she’s rehabilitating herself as a normal mother and mathematics teacher, it’s time to stop dreaming about slicing people’s throats. While being the wife of Melbourne’s leading drug lord and simultaneously dating his best mate is not ideal, she’s determined to make it work.

It does work. Until Mia, her lover’s daughter, starts exchanging saliva with her son, Mick. They plan to commit a crime behind Sonia’s back. It isn’t long before she finds out and gets involved to protect them. But is protecting the kids really Sonia’s motive?

Note: Jessica Bell and I met virtually when we were both under contract by the same publisher (the press that originally published Leaving the Hall Light On – now out of business). She and I continue to be in touch through our passion for poetry. I heartily congratulate Jessica for what she does to further the writing work of others.


  1. Thanks so much for having me, Madeline!
