For those that participated in the Symbol Quest competition by phoning in to the coded phone number hidden on the cover of The Lost Symbol - prizes are apparently now being sent out. Here's a note from commenter 'Steve G':
I came home from work this evening and found a package from Doubleday waiting for me. In it was a signed copy of The Lost Symbol with a note saying, "Congratulations! You are 1 of 33 winners of Symbol Quest."
...For those who may be wondering, I sent the e-mail in to Random House on September 14 at +/- 8:20 pm EDT.
Congrats to Steve, great to see a reader got in early enough! Given that Steve phoned a few hours before The Lost Symbol was published, I hope the rest of you hopefuls got in super early. (If you're wondering how the phone number was solved before publication, view the comments to the Symbol Quest story - or wait a few days, when I'll finally have time to post a comprehensive look at the cover codes).
