Thanks to all who played along yesterday. It was great to see all the answers (and comments!).
Most of you got the answers correct, so these are no surprise, but here they are “officially”:
1. Who is considered the greatest of the Greek heroes? HERACLES
(Yes, the roman name is Hercules, so I allowed that, but the Greek name is Heracles. And I hear some of you grumbling, “Eh, no. Achilles.” Valid argument, but not the one I was looking for (remember, I gave the hint it had something to do with MARKED. And Hercules/Heracles is mentioned in the back cover copy). However, lucky for you, my guy Zander (ENTWINED, Aug, 2010) is a descendant of Achilles, so you’ll get both heroes very soon!)
2. Who is Hades’s consort? PERSEPHONE
3. Which hero led the Argonauts? JASON
4. Who are the “big three” gods of the pantheon? ZEUS, POSEIDON, & HADES
5. Can you name the three Furies? ALECTO, TISIPHONE & MAGAERA
Next time I think I’ll have to pick harder questions!
So without further adieu…the winner of the ARC of MARKED (by random number generator) is…
Melissa, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your snail mail addy and I’ll get your ARC in the mail to you!
Stay tuned because I have more ARCs to give away before the release on April 27, 2010! And if you just can’t wait, check out Juliana Stone’s blog and Ann Aguirre’s blog. Both these fabulous authors are also giving away copies of MARKED this week!
