Win 3 Robin Hobb books and a dragon figurine

4 Apr, 2011 filed under: Site updates, Robin Hobb, Megan Lindholm

I’m really excited to announce the very first contest here at! We’re teaming up with HarperCollins in anticipation of the US publication of The Inheritance and Other Stories which is an anthology of ten classic as well as brand new tales from Robin Hobb and Megan Lindholm.

One winner gets this amazing prize package courtesy of HarperCollins publishers:

  • a US paperback edition of Dragon Keeper
  • a US paperback edition of Dragon Haven
  • a galley copy of the upcoming The Inheritance and Other Stories
  • a beautiful dragon figurine

And here’s what you need to do to win:

1) Reply in the comments with your name and email address and the answer to this question: what is the connection between the character Ronica from the Liveship Traders trilogy and the short story “Homecoming” that is included in the Inheritance collection? (hint: you can find the answer on this site!)

2) Spread the word about this contest. You can post to forums, blogs, Twitter, Facebook, Livejournal communities etc, just make sure that the place where you post is not a locked profile or community.
- Remember to include a link to this contest in your posting.
- Add proof (= links) of your postings to your comment here.

You gain 1 point for every documented posting you make and 1 point for the right answer to the above question. The contestant with most points wins. If there is a tie, the winner’s name will be drawn. The contest ends on Sunday the 10th of April at 11PM GMT+2 (convert to your local time).

Good luck!

Ronica Vestrit is connected via her links to the Rain Wilds. The story is set in the rain wilds as a prequel to the Liveship Traders.

1) The main family in the story (Carrock) are ancestors of Ronica (but not of the Vestrits)…

1) Ronica may have married into the Vestrit family, but she was born a Carrock and the Carrocks are the main family (the family the main character has married into?) in the prequel short story Homecoming.
