From Sharon, Noon EST, Wednesday, November 28, 2012: The contest is now closed. The last eligible reply is from Sunbee19. Winner will be announced on Friday, November 30, 2012.
Thank you all for playing!
This is a contest for those among us who are patiently waiting for the February publication of Necessity’s Child (the book formerly known as George)*
Several A(dvance) R(eading) C(opies) of this fine Liaden novel arrived at the Cat Farm and Confusion Factory earlier this week. So we’re doing a giveaway.
HERE ARE THE RULES:
If you want an ARC of Necessity’s Child, all you have to do is tell me why. Whoever has the best reason, in my sole judgment, will win the ARC.
In order to make it easy on me, I’m only going to accept reasons that are posted in answer to this post on sharonleewriter.com. LJ and/or FB answers will not count. The Blog With No Name at sharonleewriter is a moderated blog, so don’t worry if your post doesn’t show up immediately; it may take up to a couple hours to be cleared.
The contest will end at Noon, Eastern Standard Time on Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
I will make my determination no later than Friday, November 30 and will contact the winner for a snail address.
Everybody OK with the Rules?
I’m looking forward to reading your reasons.
*Promo copy for Necessity’s Child, for those who need their memory refreshed:
The kompani sees none as enemy, and few as friend. It exists in many places, living quietly in the shadows, thriving off the bounty that others have no wit to secure, nor skill to defend. Their private history is unwritten; their recall rooted in dance and dream.
Clan Korval is wealthy in enemies; fortunate in friends. They protect themselves with vigor, and have taught even their youngest children the arts of war. They arrive on the planet Surebleak, where the kompani has lived secret and aloof, borne, it seems, by the very winds of change.
Change is often a boon to the kompani, for in change lies opportunity. But the arrival of Clan Korval, upon the planet Surebleak, with its friends, its enemies, and, most of all, its plans may bring catastrophe, changing the world’s culture, and the kompani, forever.
In this time of change, the lives of three people intersect — Kezzi, apprentice to the kompani’s grandmother; Syl Vor, Clan Korval’s youngest warrior; and Rys, a man without a world, or a past.
