Chasing Sylvia Beach Literary Mashup Matchup Contest

By Cynthia Morris

I’ve taken opening and closing lines from famous novels and revised them slightly to create this Literary Mashup Matchup quiz.

Pair the mashup with the author and title and learn a little about my novel Chasing Sylvia Beach along the way!

Get all six correct and win a copy of Chasing Sylvia Beach. The first person to guess all answers correctly is the winner.

The winner will be announced on December 7 on Facebook. Good luck!
