Everyone loves winning things, and I have something to give away.
Here are the details!
I have a polished first-draft copy of Threads of Malice sitting on my ironing board, the same copy I sent to my editor in December 2004. It is 553 pages long and marked in red and blue inks with corrections, questions, notations, and other assorted edits from my editor, as well as some other notes, written by me, in green.
There’s also a 17-page letter from my editor that explains and expands upon the corrections as well as additional comments about the book, the series, and my writing. I’ve written a few additional notes on this letter, too.
Both documents have my address and direct contact information for my agent blacked out, but otherwise they are complete and un-altered. I will, on request, personalize and sign the manuscript, or leave it as is. I’ll also ship it anywhere in the world – outside of the US it may take several weeks so that I’m not paying the current crazy-expensive prices for fast international shipping.
Now, how to win it?
Just answer some questions. Seven of them to be exact, three from Threads of Malice, the others from the other books, the series, and the short story, Fire. Entries close at 11:59 pm CST, Sunday June 20th. On Monday June 21, I will draw one name from all correct entrants. So that no one can copy someone else’s answers, please email all entries to tambowrites AT gmail DOT com. I will delete any answers that appear in blog or facebook comments.
So. The questions:
1. How many times were Lars, Jess, and Aly in the cemetery and why were they there each time?
2. How did Dubric find a clue in Braoin's painting?
3. Who does Dien threaten to feed to the hogs?
4. What snack do Dien and Lars share when Dien explains what working for Dubric really means?
5. How did Oriana die?
6. What disguise did Nella use to move through the castle with Bostra?
7. What was Lars' dog's name?
