Great responses to the contest, with three people getting all of the answers right. You guys also broke record for daily traffic on the website, which really makes me happy. The more eyeballs I get on this site, the more hopeful I am that sales for the novel will be good. For everyone who retweets me, reposts my videos or in some way tells people about Prodigal or about this site, I simply want to say thank you.
Now, with that out of the way, let’s get to the winner of the contest (as well as the answers).
David Lloyd of Atlanta was the first contestant with all the correct answers. He wins a free, autographed copy of Prodigal. David, I’ll be e-mailing you to get your contact info. Thanks for playing!
Derrick Rainwater was a close second — and when I say close second, his e-mail actually came two minutes behind David’s.
I overlooked David Wallace’s entry (It was the only entry that got routed to my spam folder. No idea why.) — he actually came in third place via his e-mail’s time-stamp. Laci Meis was our fourth-place contestant. Great job, everyone!
And now, the answers:
1. The Great Gatsby – F. Scott Fitzgerald
2. The Sun Also Rises – Ernest Hemingway
3. Fahrenheit 451 – Ray Bradbury
4. The Godwulf Manuscript – Robert B. Parker
5. The Hunger Games – Suzanne Collins
6.The Seventh: A Parker Novel – Richard Stark
7. The Outsiders – S.E. Hinton
8. Slaughterhouse-Five – Kurt Vonnegut
9. The Body – Stephen King
10. What’s So Funny – Donald Westlake
Again, thanks for playing, everyone. Next time, the stakes will be higher!
