First off the “rules”. These aren’t mine they are the publisher’s because they are the one sending out the prizes.
~Only 1 winner from this blog but look out for others also giving away a copy. This won’t be the only blog picking a winner.
~Open only to residents of the U.S. or Canada and No PO boxes
~I host and select the winner but the publisher sends the books out.
Now on to my “rules”, how to enter and get more than one chance in the random drawing (like buying raffle tickets)
~Think of this as a late Christmas gift for the winner.
~Comments and passing on the contest info via twitter, facebook, blogs, and email are what get you in the running for a copy.
