And the ARC goes to...

Alas, our fun and exciting contest has come to an end. (Don't you hate when people use the word alas?) I'm kinda sad because I really enjoyed reading about all the good deeds you guys have been doing out there. I know they were things you would've done anyway, and it makes me proud of my Duders. You're all good people.

This wasn't easy. We had over 350 entries! Through a joint collaboration of my family's efforts, and combining randomness and goodness, the winners of an ARC for THE SCORCH TRIALS are as follows:

Shallee

Scott Pollack

Jenny Granola

Eric

Leesie

Congratulations!!!! Please let me know your email address, and we'll contact you to get your mailing address. And be sure and let us know what you think! (especially, ahem, if you, ahem, like it.)

Note: For those of you who know me personally and entered, we purposefully didn't pick you. Sorry about that. I figured you can come over and borrow it. Haha.

Kirstin Driggs-Nguyen said...

Ok, so which of you winners lives in Utah and wants to let me borrow the book when you're done?!?!?! Seriously, though!

Magenta said...

Ah, if only I lived in Utah. I would most certainly make the trip and ask to borrow an ARC. Hmm... But maybe I can get a friend to do it for me? ^_~

Congrats to the 5 lucky people! After looking at your comments, you guys all totally deserved to win. ^_^ Especially you, Eric. Way to go on all the multiple entries. ^,~ What a lucky kid you are.

Brubblez said...

Congrats Dudes! Your entries were tres awesome!
Now to plan another trip to America to get this book! Or, maybe you could release them down here in Australia *wink wink *
We would love em! I especially did! My whole school is practically on reserve to borrow my copy!

Chelle said...

Congrats to the winner! And thanks, Dashner Dude, for the contest!

Vanessa M. said...

Oh, I sad.

Oh well. I recently won a contest anyway, so I'll be okay.

I think you should totally have ANOTHER contest. Duders, don't you guys agree with me?

I'm excited now. Even more than I was before.

Eric said...

i hope i get an e-mail soon, i hope i get an e-mail soon. i have nothing to do but go crazt and watch the compuer screen.

Amanda said...

Oh well. At least this made me do something good for people even though I didn't win. :( Will have to wait longer for the book but will hopefully read the rest of your books, James

Taffy said...

One question- what does ARC stand for?

Anonymous said...

Oh ya congrats to all the winners:1

Brubblez said...

ARC = Advanced Readers Copy
or
ALL READERS COVET!

lol, the last one was a joke :P

Scott Pollack said...

I must copy Leesie Jones...

AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

I never win anything. Seriously. I've tried for ARC's before, but this one feels much better because of how I "earned" it.

My email is scott.pollack@ccsd21.org

Also, let me know the rules of this book, such as...
*What do I do when I'm done (besides tell you how much I love it)
*Can I share it with my friends and students at school? (I teach 6th grade, and have gotten others to read Maze Runner...They love it, of course)

I just finished your first 13th Reality book yesterday, and found it to be a really fun ride. Thanks again for you, and your family, picking me. I look forward to your reply.

Jackson Porter said...

Nope, I'm not even going to talk about you nerds who won the stupid book.

Just kidding.

Anyway, I emailed you about this Dashner, reply back or I'll hunt you down and stake you like a vampire.

On an unrelated note, Dashner Dude: who is the artist for the new covers for your 13th reality series? They look great!

Come on Jenny! Where'd you go?

Eric said...

Scott Pollack said...

Are we really waiting for Granola or has Master Dashner not just been able to check the blog? Personally I'd rather wait for Donuts. I don't do much Granola! :)
