[ETA 10/29/12: The race is now over! Thanks to all who participated! My giveaway, however, will continue until next week, so keep those comments coming.]
The final installment of a trilogy can be challenging because there are so many expectations, but I can say with some certainty that the third YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes is going to be the best one yet. Most of the Apocalypsies are sprinting toward the finish line; our debut year is nearly over, but some of us already have new books coming out in 2012! So we have even more authors participating this time around, and you can win lots of great stuff, including books, advance copies, and swag. Plus, this race is kind of Halloweeny!
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 Monday, October 22 at 12:00 p.m. EST.

Ephraim thought his universe-hopping days were over. He’s done wishing for magic solutions to his problems; his quantum coin has been powerless for almost a year, and he’s settled into a normal life with his girlfriend, Jena. But then an old friend crashes their senior prom: Jena’s identical twin from a parallel world, Zoe.
Zoe’s timing couldn’t be worse. It turns out that Ephraim’s problems have just begun, and they’re much more complicated than his love life: The multiverse is at stake—and it might just be Ephraim’s fault.
Ephraim, Jena, and Zoe embark on a mission across multiple worlds to learn what’s going wrong and how to stop it. They will have to draw on every resource available and trust in alternate versions of themselves and their friends, before it’s too late for all of them.
If Ephraim and his companions can put their many differences aside and learn to work together, they might have a chance to save the multiverse. But ultimately, the solution may depend on how much they’re willing to sacrifice for the sake of humanity…and each other.
In addition to the signed copy of Quantum Coin I’m offering in the Race, I’ll give away a special prize pack that includes signed bookmarks for Fair Coin and Quantum Coin, Fair Coin postcards, a signed bookplate for Fair Coin, one of my last Fair Coin coin cases, Quantum Coin barcode stickers, and a bag of chocolate state quarters, to one lucky winner on my own blog.
All you have to do to enter for a chance to win is leave a comment in this post answering this question: How would your life be different in a parallel universe?
