The 10 Flimsiest Excuses to Receive a Signed ARC of THE MARK

10. I need a leg for my dining room table.
Scott Seegert

9. I'd like to win a copy of THE MARK to get back at everyone who's ever told me I was "missing the mark."
Gerald So

8. Well, see, I lost my fingernail file, and gunk is accumulating under my fingernails. If I win THE MARK, I can use the corners of the pages to keep my fingernails looking pretty.

7. My dog ate my only book.
Pattinase Abbott

6. I'm running out of materials to line the bottom of the bird cage.
Mystery Dawg

5. My computer chair legs are uneven and IT is too thick.
Michele Lee

4. My name's shorter and easier to spell than the name of the previous winner.
John McAuley

3. Winning a signed copy of THE MARK will make me a better mother.
Brita Miko

2. I'd like an ARC of The Mark as a distraction to help cure my internet porn addiction.

1. I have a baby ferret on a respirator and reading THE MARK out loud will save his life.
Angie Johnson-Schmit

Congrats to Angie, who wins a signed copy of THE MARK which will hopefully help keep her baby ferret alive. I have a soft spot for ferrets. Or is it marmots? Oh well, congrats anyway Angie, and thanks to everyone who entered. There were a ton of flimsy reasons to consider, and it's great to know there are so many cheapskates always looking for the easy route.

Ahahahaha! I won! I won!

Frankie the Ferret is a real live critter suffering horribly. His life is in your hands, dude. He's barely holding on, waiting for THE MARK...

Shut up, Mindy. You're just jealous.

I'm just glad that my diploma from the Veterinary ICU Technical Training Institute paid off!

Damn! I misread the rules. I thought it was for the BEST excuse, not the flimsiest.

Teaches me to read the damn directions.

Not that my excuse was the best by any means.

Ha! My dog ate my only copy of "Magic Kingdom For Sale." He also ate my son's homework. Really.
