MARKED Release Contest DAY 1!

Here we go!!

Okay, this is how the contest is going to work: Each day from now until April 26th, I’ll be posting at least two questions for you to answer. Post your answer to THE DAY’S QUESTIONS in the comment section of that day’s post. You have to answer BOTH QUESTIONS to be entered. And the really cool part? I’ll be choosing AT LEAST two winners per day as well.

Winners will get to choose their prize from the list below:

Juliana Stone His Darkest Hunger
Donna Grant Dangerous Highlander
Anita Clenney – $15 Borders Gift Certificate
Barbara Monajem Sunrise in the Garden of Love & Evil
Annette McCleave Bound By Darkness

Susan Kelley The Greater Good
Louisa Kelley Lydia & the Draca
Jess Granger Beyond the Rain
Erin Kellison Arc of Won by Amy (Day 1 winner)
Denise Agnew Dark Fire
Catherine Anne Collins A Witch’s Lament

Once a prize is chosen, it gets crossed off the list, so pay close attention to what gets claimed so you have your 2nd, 3rd, etc. choices mapped out.

That’s it. Super easy. I ask, you answer, YOU WIN!

(Winners will be chosen at random, must be 18 yrs old to participate, yadda yadda yadda.)

Also, don’t forget part two of my awesome contest. I have THREE $25 gift cards to the bookstore of your choice to give away. To enter this portion of the contest, simply email me at elisabeth@elisabethnaughton.com to tell me where you posted about either this contest or the release of MARKED. Simply put “MARKED Release Contest” in the subject line of your email. (If you post the above MARKED widget or book cover somewhere you get entered twice!). You can enter as many times as you like. The more times/places you talk up MARKED, the more chances you have to win.

Got it?

Ready?

***

Okay…DAY ONE QUESTIONS (we’ll start off easy):

1) Which god/goddess from Greek mythology is Heracles named for?
2) Author Juliana Stone (HIS DARKEST HUNGER) writes for both Avon and Samhain Publishing. What is the name of Juliana’s second Jaguar book, due out from Avon in November, 2010?

    lol it’ll be so embarrassing if I answer wrong – it’d be much easier to leave it up to others 😉
    But, 1. Heracles was named for Hera – sad considering how very much she hated him.
    2. It is 3:22 AM and all – but I’m going with His Darkest Embrace 🙂

    Yay – I’m so excited about Marked 😀

    1. Some say he was named Alcaeus at birth after his grandfather, he changed his own name to Heracles (Hercules) when he went to the temple at Delphi as a young man. Others say that he was named Heracles at birth in an attempt to mollify Hera, who hated all Zeus’s children born by human women. Personally, I think she should have smitten her cheating husband with a firebolt. Just my humble opinion. 🙂

    2. His Darkest Embrace.
