Giveaway Policy

Periodically, I host giveaways for my readers. These events will be self-sponsored by the blog owner, yours truly. This may or may not be plainly stated in the actual giveaway.  If you need further clarification, please ask.

All giveaways, unless otherwise stated, will follow these guidelines:

~hosted and winners chosen via Rafflecopter,, PromoSimple, or through commenting on the giveaway post.

~particpants must be a follower of my blog via, Twitter, or Facebook. All entries in violation will not be counted.

~are hosted with the intent of adding a bit of fun to this site and in no way are meant to be a form of gambling or sweepstakes.

~open only to individuals in the US.

~will start and end on dates listed in each specific contest.

~each winner will have 48 hours to claim prize, after being notified via the email or username they used to enter the contest. After 48 hours, if there is no response, another winner will be chosen.

~I agree to mail prize to winner(s) within 14 days or once prize becomes available in case of pre-orders. All prizes will be ordered by blog owner through with prime shipping and I am not responsible for books that become lost in the mail or arrive damaged.

~All giveaway entrants agree to be honest and not cheat the systems; any suspect of fraud is decided upon by blog/site owner and the sponsor, and entrants may be disqualified at our discretion.

~Any prizes that may result in tax liability for the winner(s) are the winner(s) responsibility.

~Any and all giveaways may be promoted on Facebook, Twitter, email or other social network sites. This is a means of promotion only, and any promotion on those sites is not to be interpreted as Facebook or Twitter partaking in, or being in any way responsible for that particular contest.

~Winner(s) assumes all responsibility if further clarification is needed, prior to either entering a giveaway on this site or claiming a prize at the conclusion of a contest.

~I use various hosting methods for giveaways, for example Rafflecopter or PromoSimple. Most of these entities gather email addresses for verification, and by entering, you are giving permission to have your email added to our mailing list. You still will get a verification/confirmation email and may decline or unsubscribe at any time.


~Have fun, good luck & thanks for reading!
