Hi there, everyone! So, how is February treating you thus far? Over dosed on pre-Valentine's Day love yet? No? Good....because I aim to spread a little more. You may have noticed the widget at the top of my page from HarperTEEN. It will remain there as promised throughout the month of February giving you the chance to win a new book each day in their Winter Escape Giveaway. (Stay tuned for a special feature post right here on the 18th! You won't be sorry...)
In the spirit of giving and continuing the warm fuzzy feelings (emphasis on the fuzzy)...I am lucky enough to be able to present to you yet another contest starting right now! YOU, lucky readers, have the chance to win your very own SIGNED copy of A Man and His Maniac: The Bunkie Story courtesy of author Charles Franklin Emery! In fact, he is offering 5 copies for this giveaway so you have that many more chances to win! Missed the post about the book? No worries...just click here. Missed the interview with the author? Got you covered once again...click right here.
Now let's see...we've covered the prize, let's cover the rules:
1. Open to US/Canada addresses only. If you live elsewhere and have someone that will ship the book to you with a US/Canada address, that will work as well. No P.O. Boxes please.
2. Due to the book's content, I would request that those entering be at least 15 or older. It's not really bad, but there are a few choice words and situations I'd rather not put right under the nose of anyone younger than that.
3. The contest will run from today through midnight CST on February 21st. The winning names will be drawn and contacted via email on Monday, February 22nd. Winners will have 72 hours to contact me back with their address. Names/addresses will be forwarded to the author for book shipment.
3. YOU MUST LEAVE YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS. Sorry...I'm not trying to yell at you, just emphasize that you really need to include that information...otherwise, I can not contact you if you win! Feel free to put it in a "coded" form....no one likes SPAM. Something like SOANDSO(AT)EVERYWHERE(DOT)COM ought to work quite well. (So, let's sum this up...no email address, no entry.)
4. There won't be any crazy things to do in order to enter this contest, a simple comment + email address will work....but there will opportunities for extra points....speaking of those....
Extra points can be earned by:
+2 - Old follower
+1 - New follower
+1 - Tweeting contest (leave a link to the tweet please!)
+1 - Linking contest on blog (leave a link to the post.....or sidbar! Those count too....)
+1 - TOTAL YOUR ENTRIES (this point is only valid for those participating in the extra point options...but hey, it's an easy extra extra point!)
