Tis true! Gretchen McNeil has been kidnapped and replaced by a doppelgänger. The REAL Gretchen is being help captive in an alternate universe until certain demands are met.
To free our dear Gretchen, you must earn ransom points and all ransom points must be submitted by Friday, November 1st along with the name of local book store (of the ransomer's choice). The two ransomers with the highest accumulation of points will have the real Gretchen McNeil reprimanded to their custody.
Repeat: Gretchen McNeil will appear at a book signing in your home town.
To help Gretchen and join her Army of Ten, visit the ARMY OF TEN blog for details.
