MARKED Release Contest Day 5!

Congrats to all the winners so far! I love doling out presents!

We’re halfway there! Only 5 days left to give away all these prizes! (And six days until MARKED releases! Squee!)

(FYI: I’m going to be reposting the contest rules every day, so if you just want to skim to the bottom to see the new daily questions…go for it.)

For those of you new to the contest, here are the official deets:

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 ALL 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:

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. Winners will be contacted by email, when a prize is chosen, it’s crossed off the list and the winner’s name is listed next to their prize.)

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?

Let’s keep going…

***

Okay…DAY FIVE QUESTIONS:
(FYI: the number of questions equals the number of prizes being given out that day. And if you haven’t already figured it out, question one will ALWAYS have something to do with Greek mythology.)

1) Who is your favorite Olympian god and why?

2) What is Nina Pierce‘s favorite book of all time?

3) Angie Fox writes about sassy demon slayers and wacky biker witches. Her “What’s your biker witch name?” quiz on her site is a complete hoot. Hop over and fill it out, then come back here and tell me…What’s YOUR Biker Witch Name?

    1. Ooohhh gosh. This is a really tough one for me – how to choose?! So… I’ll go with my favorite as a kid. Demeter – I like green growing things… and it just seemed cool the whole Persephone story. And you know, that Demeter seems all lovely and chill and people love her – but if she gets mad, she’s definitely got a way of making you suffer.
