Final Day of the Superfan Contest, featuring Mr. Ralph and the quote that came to me in a dream

Each weekday between March 31 and April 10 (that's today!), I'm posting a new This Side of Salvation "trading card" on my blog and on my various social networks. The cards feature quotes by the different characters, as well as iconic images associated with them. By sharing this image on your blog and/or social networks, you could win some great prizes!

Today's card features David's homeschool math teacher, Mr. Ralph. (He doesn't have a last name.) While I was writing This Side of Salvation, I woke one night with this exact quote in my head. I scribbled it on my notepad in the dark, and in the morning, though I could barely read my own handwriting, I knew I'd found the novel's central truth.

For Superfan contest details, including rules, prize list, and entry form, see this post. If you already know what to do, here's a direct link to the entry form, which contains helpful instructions on how to link to your posts. To see a gallery of trading cards (and other interesting stuff from the book), visit the TSoS Pinterest page.

This coming weekend, I will do the drawings for the nine daily prizes, Monday's bonus prize, and the grand prize of them all, so be sure to share this final card by the end of the day tomorrow. Winners will be contacted via email.

Thanks a million to everyone who shared these images and words from This Side of Salvation the last nine weekdays. I hope you had as much fun as I did!
