GiveAway Terms and Conditions

When running GiveAways, I ask for a themed response in the comments to enter.
If you do not leave a themed response, your entry is eliminated. 

USA and Canadian residents may enter.  I will not ship items internationally.

Somethings you should know:
1. Email is required to notify you.  Only I can see your email in my control panel and have access to it.
Your email is not used for any other purpose by me.
2. If you have a website/blog, you have the option to add it (or not) in the URL box.
Links put into the comments or promotional links will be removed or comment deleted and you may be possibly eliminated from the GiveAway.
3. If you don’t have a website or blog, do not add any URL in the box at all, but make sure you leave your email.
Please note that this is important: no URL in the box if you have no website.  This site is considered Family Friendly and has SnapShots.
I noticed that a few people put fake URLs in the box only to observe smut sites coming up on the SnapShot on a mouseover.

How Winners are picked:
Either I do name in a hat picking (my son is the official picker) or I use a randomizer.
Depends on how many people entered.
Contests end at midnight on the date specified — only entries up to that time and date are official. 
Winner is picked the next day or so and notified.
Winner has two days to respond to the email request for their snail mail address. 
If I do not hear from them by midnight two days later, their prize is revoked and another person will be picked.

Mailing out the Prize:
I use the cheapest postal rate depending on the content.
Books are mailed out Media Mail which can take 2-3 weeks to deliver to your doorstep.

Bonus Entries:
You can earn two bonus enteries if you:
1. Write a positive review of this blog with the URL
2. Create a post about the GiveAway in your blog with the URL.
3. Use the banner of the GiveAway provided and linked in a post.
4. Put a link to this site on your sidebar.
You can earn up to six extra entries by doing any three listed.
EX: If I am having multiple GiveAways, your extra entries are split evenly between the GiveAways.

If you do any of these, you will have to use the Contact Form to let me know, include your URL.
I then add your name to the list before the GiveAways begin.
You can enter again on the post of the GiveAway.

Akismet spam blocker is in use and there is comment approval for first time posters.
