Greetings, intrepid internet traveler. And welcome to my stop on the YAmazing Race with MGnificent Prizes! You are now caught up in an epic blog hop hosted by more than 50 authors with young adult and middle grade novels debuting in 2012. As you make your way across the web, pay close attention at each stop and you’ll have the chance to win a prize pack that includes free books, gift certificates, swag, and more. One lucky person will win a coin that will magically grant an exclusive sneak peek at my upcoming YA novel, Fair Coin.* If you’ve accidentally stumbled into this race, please visit the Apocalypsies website to read the complete rules and start the race from the beginning.

FAIR COIN by E.C. Myers

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.

Right. Hope you got all that. Remember, you have to complete all five (5) quizzes in order to be eligible for a prize pack. Good luck!

Feel free to hang out here and take a look around. Maybe subscribe to my blog, say hello in the comments, or follow me on Facebook, Goodreads, or Twitter. (Links are in the column on the right.)

When you’re ready to move on, make with the clicky to be whisked away to the next stop on the race: Suzanne Lazear’s website (http://www.suzannelazear.com/). Thanks for coming by! Be seeing you.

* Not an Actual Magic CoinTM, but a coin-shaped USB flash drive pre-loaded with an except from Fair Coin.

  1. Fair Coin definitely sounds like a book that’ll make you think. Thanks for participating in the race!

    Thanks for sharing E.C. The premise of your book sounds really creative. I’d like a “Fair Coin,” too! It would surely help me “fix” a couple things in my life. What a great idea for a novel. I can’t wait to read more. I followed you on Twitter. You can find me on Twitter: @ZaraAlexis

    See you at the finish line. This YAmazing Race is intense!

      Thank you, Zara. Best of luck in the race. I’m hoping to be able to offer another “fair coin” or two before the book is out…

  3. Great concept! Can’t wait to read it. Good luck, and please let me know if you’d like me to review FAIR COIN on my blog. Now back to the race:)

      Thanks, Tammy! I’ll e-mail you my publicist’s contact information. She can arrange to send you a review copy.

  4. It would be great to have a magic coin that would give me the text of a different wanted book each time I flipped it.

      That may be the best wish I’ve heard so far :)
