Hardball will be in stores on September 22, but I have an extra Advance Reader Copy –what some people call bound galleys. As you may remember, it’s been a few years since V I was last tearing up Chicago, or being torn up by Chicago. What was the Girl Detective doing while I was writing Bleeding Kansas and Writing in an Age of Silence? Post your idea here and the one that is the best–funniest, scariest, or most clever–will win its author my last advance reader copy. Our judges are completely subjective–remember, this is Chicago!
