Hopefully you’ve read Fair Coin by now, because the sequel will be out this October. You still have time to catch up on the shenanigans of Ephraim, Nathan, Jena, and Zoe before then, but if you’re ready to find out what happens to them next and hate the idea of waiting any longer than necessary, then I have good news for you: Pyr is giving away three advance reading copies of Quantum Coin over at Goodreads. Just click below to enter the random drawing. You have a 100% chance of winning, on a parallel Earth somewhere in the multiverse. You can’t beat those odds.

Advance praise for Quantum Coin:

“[T]eens crack wise and lock lips while saving the multiverse from an information overload…. Myers salts his tale with amusing, often-libidinous adolescent banter… Fans of alternate worlds will find a heapin’ helping here.”
Kirkus Reviews

“[S]ci-fi fans who love their fiction with a dash of real science, crack open these books.”
Jess, HubPages

“This book is for smart kids. If you have geeky teens who are underwowed by the recent rash of prom-dress-covered YA and prefer to read a savvy, well-paced adventure, this is the one.”
Catherine Schaff-Stump, Writer Tamago

Praise for Fair Coin:

“[A] well-written, fast-paced, EPIC adventure. There are plot twists you will never see coming and enough science fiction elements to satisfy even the hungriest nerd brain! In my opinion, it accurately portrays . . . what teenagers would do if they had the entire universe at their disposal.”
Mother/Gamer/Writer

“I thoroughly loved this book. Rather than finding just another same-old, same-old book, this one smashed through the mold . . . I highly recommend [Fair Coin] to all fans of YA, especially those who enjoy male MCs, science fiction, and fantasy.”
I Swim for Oceans

“Myers has written a novel that makes the reader think . . . a young adult novel of substance. It is humorous, emotional, and complex in a refreshing way, and I think it’s a book that anyone who enjoys science fiction could really love.”
Literary Obsession

“Magic and science collide in this retelling of the classic fable about misguided wishes never having exactly the outcome you intend. Myers’s tale has a massive twist. . . . [A] fast-paced and fun story.”
RT Book Reviews, Four Stars: Compelling; Page Turner

bid time (return)

Thank you to everyone who entered the Goodreads giveaway to win an ARC of Fair Coin! There definitely will be other opportunities to get a copy. In fact, here’s one now…

The Carl Brandon Society, an organization that helps build awareness of race and ethnicity in speculative fiction, is hosting another charity auction to get fans of color to a convention of their choice: Con or Bust. There are some delightful items and services up for auction, including a variety of autographed books and ARCs, jewelry, and critiques. Take a little while to scroll through everything on offer–more is being added every day! Some of particular interest (to me, anyway) include:

I’m also offering an ARC (again, that’s an uncorrected Advance Reading Copy) of Fair Coin (Pyr, 3/6/12) to a good home, for a good cause. The bid is currently at $10. I’ll sign or personalize this copy for the winning bidder and mail it out ASAP. The auction ends on Sunday, February 25, 2012 at 11:59 p.m. EST. Alas, this ARC is only available to people in North America.

Con or Bust also welcomes PayPal donations if you want to help but eschew material goods.
