It's CONTEST time!!!

Here it is! The contest you've been waiting for! Win a Kobe Bryant jersey! Check it out!





Stitched on letters and all! So what do you have to do to win this baby? Simple.

1. Read my new novel Ghost Ride.
2. Post a comment about it on my blog.
3. Send me a private email at info@marinacohen.com (write "Contest" in subject area so I don't miss it!)with the answer to this easy question: What is the name of the Rapper mentioned in the book?

When you post your comment on my blog you can do so anonymously--just sign your comment with a first name and your city. When you send me the answer to the skill-testing question, you need to provide me with your name and an initial. Make sure the email you send me is from an account I can reach you at should you win! Please DON'T post the answer here or you'll have too much competition! Oh, and if you can guess why I called the Rapper that specific name I will enter your name into the competition twice!

Contest will run from Tuesday, December 1st to Thursday, December 31st! Winner will be announced on New Year's Day! Good luck and happy reading!

Loved the book and so have all of the kids that have read it at my school. Current and up to date.

Andrew said...

It was wonderful to use for literature circles with my reluctant readers. The dialogue was fantastic since it was filled with events they could totally relate to!

Marina Cohen said...

Thanks for your comment, Nathan. You're in the contest! Odds are looking good so far--good luck!

Martha said...

Hi there. Gregory from LaSalle here. Loved your book, and especially the cliffhanger chapter endings! I really enjoyed your author visit at my school! You were hilarious!

Martha said...

Marina! Loved Ghost Ride! The kids in my school are all talking about how great your author visit was in November.

Marina Cohen said...

Hello Martha! Thanks for entering my contest and posting Gregory's comment as well! You are both entered. Good luck!

Stephanie said...

Happy New Year Ms. Cohen! So, who exactly won the contest, or have you not posted that up yet? Sorry for being a bit too pushy!

Marina Cohen said...

Okay! It's contest draw day! I waited until the last minute and a few people squeaked in with the right answer! The rapper's name is I-90. Some of you get your name in twice as you discovered that I named him after Interstate 90--a highway. I named him this because a) I thought it sounded like a good rapper name and b) because this highway takes me to one of my favourite destinations--Cape Cod. Soooo, the final list is as follows:

Barb
Claudia
Andrew (1)
Stephanie
Matthew
Nathan
Gregory (via Martha)
Mac (via Martha)
Andrew (2) (who was unable to post a comment)

Stay tuned as I post a short video of me drawing the winning name. I want you to see your names going in and the winner being drawn so it's fair....

GOOD LUCK!!!! (um, that's for me for taking and up-loading the video correctly...)
