Truth or Lie? Can you tell?

Today I want to introduce Crystal Collier's debut novel, Moonless. We're going to play the Truth or Lie game, and you have a chance to win her book

Alexia’s nightmares become reality: a dead baron, red-eyed wraiths, and forbidden love with a man hunted by these creatures. After an attack close to home, Alexia realizes she cannot keep one foot in her old life and one in this new world. To protect her family she must either be sold into a loveless marriage, or escape with her beloved and risk becoming one of the Soulless. 

MOONLESS is Jane Eyre meets Supernatural.

"MOONLESS is powerful, compelling, and packed with soul." --Bethany Kaczmarek, editor at A Little Red, Inc. 

"I fell head over heels for the characters. The story itself was magnificent and the way Crystal writes is beyond that." --TC Mckee, acquiring editor at BookFish Books 

"The mystery is dense and pulsating... Power-packed action, heart stopping mystery, unpredictable twists and turns..." --Review on I Am a Reader Not a Writer

Buy MOONLESS HERE or add it on Goodreads.

Crystal gave me two truths and one lie to test your "lie detector" skills. Can you figure out the lie? Those who do will be entered in a random drawing to win one of three ebooks of MOONLESS. How cool is that? You have until November 30, at 11:59 p.m. to guess--and be sure to come back for the answer and winner announcement on ANY DAY AFTER DECEMBER 3!


1. Crystal answers proudly to several nicknames, one of which is “Chicken.”
2. She won her first and only ice skating competition at the age of ten.
3. She has had her art work featured in a couple literary magazines. 

Okay human lie detectors, which is the lie? Enter your guess below!

Crystal Collier, author of MOONLESS, is a former composer/writer for Black Diamond Productions. She can be found practicing her brother-induced ninja skills while teaching children or madly typing about fantastic and impossible creatures. She has lived from coast to coast and now calls Florida home with her creative husband, three littles, and “friend” (a.k.a. the zombie locked in her closet). Secretly, she dreams of world domination and a bottomless supply of cheese. 

You can find her on her blog and Facebook, or follow her on Twitter.

AND you have one more chance to win!


  1. Chicken - now that is a heck of nickname, Crystal!

  2. Hi Lee and Crystal - good luck with Moonless - the storyline sounds intriguing with a degree of horror and darkness ..

    Cheers and thoughts - Hilary

  3. Alex--I won't disagree.

    Hilary--Thank you!

  4. Not sure my lie detectors are functioning properly today but I'll have a go!

  5. I'll go with #1. Because I'm not sure how well chicken pairs with cheese. Congrats to Crystal!

  6. Suzanne--the only way you're guaranteed to lose is by not trying, eh? ;)

    Mary--LOL! There's a cheese for everything.

    Sherry--*shrugs* Hey, it could be true.

  7. Considering we're talking about the wild and crazy, cheese-loving Crystal, any one of those facts could be true. I can't pick the lie. I vote for all true! lol

  8. Okay, relax, smile, tap dance and giggle incessantly. Yes and yay, I have finally arrived with yet another one of my highly collectable comments.

    Aha, Lee, jolly good of you to help bring further awareness of Crystal's "Moonless".

    When it comes to figuring out the lie, I must chicken out.

    All the best to Crystal.

    And Lee, as ever, your starstuckest fan,


  9. I am guessing #2 is the lie- though it does sound believable...

    How fun! Wishing Crystal much success. I can't wait to read this one!

  10. I entered the contest but not the drawing. Sadly, Rafflecopter doesn't like to play with me.

    Good luck to everyone!

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  11. I'm terrible at the 3 truths game. All three sound like fun. Moonless sounds so cool. Best of luck Crystal.

  12. Lexa--LOL! Well, you could be right. *shifty eyes* Not. ;)

    Gary--Guess shy, eh? ;)

    Jess--Thank you for the wishes.

    Carol--I'll slap rafflecopter on the hand for you. ;)

    Leslie--Thank you.


Please say something to me, anything. Well, not anything, but a kind word will do.
