All right, guys, I have another copy to give away! And this time it’s open internationally.
To win a signed and personalized copy of THE GODDESS TEST, please post a comment below with both your name and email address.
The contest will run from now until 11:59pm my time (EST, GMT -5) on April 25th. You must be at least 13 years old to enter, and if you’re under 18, you must have your parents’ permission. You may only enter once.
Please make sure to include both your name and email address, else I’ll have no way to contact you.
Infinite kudos to those of you who spread the word through Twitter or Facebook. Good luck to you all!
(Please note that the winner will be chosen by a random number generator, not me! Thanks for all the love, guys. )
EDIT: The contest is now CLOSED! Thanks so much for entering, guys, and I’ll have a winner announced very shortly!
After compiling and reading through each entry without names attached, we have a winner.
This was one hell of a tough decision – there were some extremely compelling entries, and I loved all of them. I chose the winner based on creativity, effort, word count (150 and below, as specified in the contest post), and general awesomeness. There was no formula. But there was one that is absolutely killer.
So, without further ado, our winner is…
An Ode to Hades – a Shakespearean sonnet (in proper iambic pentameter) by Rachel B.
For many years before The Goddess Test
I’ve thought in awe upon the days of old
To wonder who of all the gods was best
And who within my heart a place would hold
Athena rules o’er Greece with strength of mind
The Lord of Seas Poseidon brings the storm
To maidens Artemis is always kind
Without Apollo there would be no morn
Yet somehow Hades seems to rise above
As Lord of Death and ruler underground
Despite bad luck he’s well deserving of
A reputation better than I’ve found
With cleverness and power he will keep
The balance, and will greet me when I sleep
Great job, Rachel B.! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your address and who you’d like to make the book out to.
Now, for anyone upset they didn’t win, don’t worry! I’m about to post a second contest – this one international – where no writing’s required. Except, of course, just posting to enter.
Congratulations again to Rachel B.!
EDIT: This contest is now closed. The winner will be announced soon, and keep an eye out for an international contest as well!
With a month to go before THE GODDESS TEST’s April 26th release, I thought it might be fun to run a little contest for a personalized copy of the book.
In order to enter, leave a comment below explaining who your favorite Greek god is and why, in 150 words or less. This can be any god (or half-god) that appears in Greek mythology, but make sure to explain why they’re your favorite. (ETA: please note that this MUST be a god of some sort. Titans do count. Full mortals like Pandora unfortunately do not. If you’re not sure, check out Wikipedia to see if they are specified as a god, half-god, or Titan.)
You’ll have until 12:00am EST on April 10th to enter – so fifteen days. You may only enter once. Once you’ve entered, please don’t delete your entry and rewrite it, since I’ll be compiling them separately. Don’t worry about typos you might find. We all make them.
Unfortunately this will be limited to the US and Canada, but I will almost certainly have another contest sometime soon for international readers as well.
I’ll pick my favorite sometime between April 10th-12th, and I’ll be judging the entries without names, so there will be no bias. You can go for funny, touching, unique, whatever floats your boat. Just make sure to keep it under 150 words.
And please – no spoilers for The Goddess Test. If you include a spoiler not included on the back summary (i.e., comparing Henry to Hades is fair game), your entry will be disqualified.
