win an ARC of Anne Bishop’s MURDER OF CROWS (and more)

In honor of the elemental we’re currently calling Pax, it seems appropriate to give away a copy of an ARC (advance reading copy) of Anne Bishop’s forthcoming novel, MURDER OF CROWS, the 2nd book in the Others series, along with a signed book plate from the author and a bookmark featuring the cover art. Bonus: If you haven’t read the series, a mass market paperback of book 1: WRITTEN IN RED will be included (and if you have read it, give it to a friend and get them hooked!).

To enter: Post a comment on this entry captioning the above picture.

Only one entry per person. Domestic (US) and international entries accepted. This is for an ARC, not the hardcover edition. Contest starts now and runs until Monday, February 17, 5pm Eastern (or until I dig out – just kidding). Winner will be randomly chosen.

winners of these questions three

1. What was the time of day of the first query I received in this New Year?

And the winner is… Her Grace the optimist with 2:18 AM. The actual answer was 2:20 AM.

2. How many queries did I respond to over the course of 2013?

And the winner is… Michelle Pike with 6258 (actual number to be revealed in the annual query stats roundup post).

3. How many times did WordPress say my blog was viewed in 2013?

And the winner is… Steven Cowles with 14,280 (it was around 18K or 7 sold out shows in the Sydney Opera House).

I will be sending an email to each of the winners to make arrangements. Probably on Monday because there’s shoveling to be done. Congratulations, all! And thanks to everyone for participating.

win an ARC by answering these questions three

Just for fun. And to have something to stay inside and read during this cold winter. Three chances to win.

1. What was the time of day of the first query I received in this New Year?

2. How many queries did I respond to over the course of 2013?

3. How many times did WordPress say my blog was viewed in 2013?

What you can win — the Ace/Roc 2013 sampler including selections from my clients Anne Bishop and Mike Shepherd along with many other Ace/Roc authors, plus 1 of 3 advance reading copies (uncorrected proofs). I have a single copy of each to offer of Elizabeth Bear’s Steles of the Sky, Cherie Priest’s Fiddlehead and Mike Shepherd’s To Do Or Die.

Winners will be asked to list the ARCs in order of preference. Ties will be decided by rolling my new Dresden Files Fate Dice.

When you can win? Starting now and going until 5pm Eastern tomorrow. Friday, January 3rd. Simply post your answers in comments on this entry to enter. One entry per person. If no one guesses the exact statistics above (and some of those would be incredibly lucky), closest answer will win.
