  • Must have a valid Twitter account to enter the giveaway or to be an email subscriber.
  • You get one entry per day—that means if you RT the contest tweet every day of the contest, you have a shot at winning all the daily prizes, and you get 12 chances to win the Grand Prize at the end of the week.
  • Winners are chosen by Random.org random number generator after each RT is assigned a number.
  • Daily winners will be announced on Twitter (the day after), and only RTs from that day will count toward that day’s prize.
  • If you enter and win a daily prize, you can still enter, once per day, for the rest of the contest duration for a better shot at the Grand Prize. You can only win one daily prize per Twitter account.
  • All prizes will be paid out at the end of the contest. Winners will be contacted individually.
  • Winners of paperback or hardcover books must have their prizes mailed to a U.S. address, or forfeit their prize.

    1. Ann, Twitter can be very distracting to one's day but also quite informative.
