Green-Eyed Envy ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) Contest…

So, in honor of the fact I have an ARC left and Green-Eyed Envy officially releases in less than a month, I am holding a contest to give that ARC away to one lucky reader.  This contest is open to people anywhere and everywhere in the world and I will ship the ARC to the winner at my own expense.  All that said, here are the contest details:

Take a look at the first volume of the Mortal Guide to the Gens Arcana, Vol. 1 graciously provided by the BSIMAR (Boston Society for the Improvement of Mortal/Arcane Relations).  Write a one-paragraph explanation for which class of Fury you would like to belong to if you were a Fury, and why, in the comments section to this post.  Contest will be open until 12:00 AM Sunday, June 5, 2011.  I will then randomly select a winner and announce it on my website/Facebook/Twitter.  The winner should then email me his or her name and mailing address so I can ship the ARC ASAP.

I’m really looking forward to everyone’s responses and can’t wait to read them!

    crimes, and murders committed
    in the heat of passion.

    I would want to be this type of fury. For there is to many cases like this that end up going unsolved. In my opinion cops do not focus enough on these type cases. I know a friend that had a restraining order on someone and it did no good. She still ended up in the hospital. Leaving her kids wondering if she was gonna make it. And she ended up havin to leave the state and move else where. So I would want to be a fury like this so I could help make a difference in this world. Even if it is starting with one case at a time.

    If I had the choice of being a certain class of Fury, it would definitely be Megaera. I was sexually assaulted when I was a teenager and have had a stalker. Obviously I am very familiar with the emotion surrounding these situations and I think it would make me more passionate and involved in a case. Knowing how a person feels at their most vulnerable moment would add fuel to the Fury fire. Bringing those criminals to justice would be very rewarding.

    Alecto. I would want to be this type of fury because of the child abuse cases. I cannot stand when innocent children are harmed in anyway.

  4. I only had to open the doc to see your interpretations, but my decision was made for me, long ago. (And I’m going to claim first dibs on it LOL): Megaera. To the point where I had a cat (adopted in 1992) NAMED Megaera: the fury whose name is sometimes interpreted “dark past.”

    Like the other commenters, that class most closely relates to some of my own experience, but even more so, that would be the class who would be most likely to deal with crimes against kids and young adults. I’m a mother, which I learned is a universal role. Everyone’s child becomes your child. Your child’s pain becomes your pain.

    Alecto—the Unceasing—blue Amphisbaena.
    This class primarily investigates assaults, batteries, physical child abuse crimes, and most cold cases.

    If I were a fury, I’d probably be Alecto class, because I’m known for my stubborn determination and stick-to-it-iveness. I think this would stand me in good stead for solving cold cases, and my no-bs outlook means I have zero tolerance for assault, especially the type that involves kids. I’d be very certain justice would be served!

    PS – Hope to see you at RWA this year –are you signing?

    This is the kind of Furie that I will choose, because I can’t stand to child abuse, child must be adored and treated well. They are our future. I’m so sad there so much child abuse case in this world, while we know all child almost weak. They must be treasured not abused. And a cold cases mean there are some justice that not solved and served yet

  7. Megaera—the Jealous One—green Amphisbaena.
    This class investigates kidnap-pings, stalkings, sexual abuse crimes, and murders committed in the heat of passion.

    Because these crimes are some of the hardest to prove, but they are also some of the most violent and evil that exist. Fury magic could help level the playing field and bring more of these criminals to justice so people could feel safer.

  8. I had a lot of fun reading these responses and think everyone had some great reasons for choosing the classes they did. After a random dice roll, the winner of the ARC is Mel Thomas. Please email me at k a s e y a t k a s e y m a c k e n z i e d o t c o m removing all the spaces and inserting the @ and . symbol as appropriate with your name and mailing address and I will get the ARC in the mail ASAP.

    Thanks to everyone who participated!
