Announcing the winner of HOURGLASS Contest #6, plus Q&A time!

Posted on April 13, 2010

It’s time to announce the winner of HOURGLASS Contest #6 — in which you guys told me your favorite scenes from HOURGLASS, and the victor (chosen at random) gets to name a character in an upcoming book. Before I do, though, let me clarify; some people who won’t be able to read the book until later were unhappy that they wouldn’t get to take part. But I plan to do this again later this year (maybe the top of fall?), so that pretty much everybody can join in that time. So hopefully nobody will get left out in the long run.

(Another fun thing: We’ll be having contests year-round this time, mostly for smaller prizes like ARCs, but you never know what might turn up next.)

Without further ado, the winner of HOURGLASS Contest #6 is Melanie S.! She’ll be appearing (as herself) in Balthazar’s book, context to be determined. 🙂 Thanks to everyone who sent in a letter; I loved reading your entries.

We’re not starting another contest yet, but I have two things to throw out there:

We’re doing a Q&A in two weeks!

On Tuesday, April 27, I’ll answer as many questions as I can from those you send to evernightclaudia at gmail dot com. Please make your subject line "Interview Questions for April 27." You can ask me questions about the EVERNIGHT series, my upcoming books, writing advice, you name it. You can even ask for spoilers (though I don’t promise to tell all … just a little.) Between now and then, I’ll answer a couple of questions I get in advance on Twitter and Facebook; however, the big A part of the Q&A will all be out on April 27.

The other thing I want to throw out there:

Would you guys be interested in a live chat?

I’m not sure exactly how I could do that yet, but I could find a way if you guys were into it. What do you think?
