Okay, just a few basic rules. These are generic… some of the authors may have a few of their own preferences.
But these are pretty much the written in stone rules for the blog.
- You can only enter once. Once period, one entry per IP address. This means if you and your three best buds all live in the same house, only one entry per house. Sorry. The reasoning is we have had a few people running scams where they post under four or five different names trying to increase their odds of winning. For those that have done this… oh, how very rude. Stop trying to cheat. You will get caught. If you do get caught, don’t be surprised if you find your name & IP shared amongst authors who will then have the option of banning you from contests. Forever. A little note to the scammers, this blog does keep a list. If you’ve tried to scam me once, your name is automatically pulled from the drawing before I even do it.
- There are several different authors posting here. It’s up to each individual author whether or not they limit the contest to the United States or international. Unfortunately, postal costs have skyrocketed. Sending one lone paperback can cost $20. If the contest doesn’t specify, you can ask on the blog or email one of the authors.
- If you enter one of the contests, it’s your responsibility to check back and see if you won. You need to check back within a reasonable amount of time or your prize may be given to somebody else.
As always, if you have questions… please ask!
