**[ETA: As of 5/8/12, this giveaway is now over! Thank you to everyone who participated in any leg of the race and for sharing your comments and wishes. I will randomly select the prize winners in the next few days, and will post your wishes on Tumblr in the weeks and months to come.]**

Hello! The previous **YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes** was so fun and successful, we decided to do it again. If you’re here at my stop on the blog hop, you probably know what it’s all about already. But if you’re lost or have no idea what I’m going on about, please visit **the Apocalypsies website** to read the complete rules and get started. Please note that the contest does not begin until **Wednesday, May 2 at 12:00 p.m. EST**.

Sixteen-year-old Ephraim Scott is horrified when he comes home from school and finds his mother unconscious at the kitchen table, clutching a bottle of pills. The reason for her suicide attempt is even more disturbing: she thought she’d identified Ephraim’s body at the hospital that day.

Among his dead double’s belongings, Ephraim finds a strange coin—a coin that grants wishes when he flips it. With a flick of his thumb, he can turn his alcoholic mother into a model parent and catch the eye of the girl he’s liked since second grade. But the coin doesn’t always change things for the better. And a bad flip can destroy other people’s lives as easily as it rebuilds his own.

The coin could give Ephraim everything he’s ever wanted—if he learns to control its power before his luck runs out.

In addition to the signed copy of *Fair Coin* and the prize pack I’m offering in the Race, I’ll be giving away **a signed bookmark, postcard, bookplate*, and custom Fair Coin coin case** to three lucky winners on my own blog. All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is flip a coin, then leave a comment in this post telling me whether it came up heads or tails. (Don’t worry, the outcome won’t have any effect on your chances of winning. And I’m just going to take it on faith that you actually flipped a coin; you’re the one who has to live with yourself if you fudge it.)

You can also get up to 5 additional entries by completing one or all of the following:

- Like my Facebook page at http://facebook.com/flipthecoin or, if you don’t do Facebook, link to this contest on your blog. (+1 entry)
- Follow me on Twitter and tweet about this contest. Be sure to mention me (@ecmyers) and include the hashtag #faircoin. (+1 entry)
- Add
*Fair Coin*on Goodreads. (+1 entry) - Pop over to my Tumblr page and make a wish! (+2 entries)

*Make sure you tell me which of the above you do for extra points in your comment so I can tally up your entries correctly! And don’t worry, if you already follow me, you still get credit for it. I’ll use some randomizer-thingey to select the winners.*

My blog contest will be open until Tuesday, May 8 at 12:00 p.m. EST.

**When you’re ready to move on, click your heels three times (or this link once) to be whisked away to the quiz.** Thanks for coming by, and good luck!

*Still working on making those bookplates, but they should be ready soon!

This look so interesting! I really want to read it. The cover is really interesting too. I liked you on Facebook, and now I have to go find a coin…

Found one! I have no idea how to flip a coin, so I just tossed it in the air and got it. I got a heads though!

Ha! The book trailer for FAIR COIN is a surprisingly good tutorial on how to flip a magic coin:
