Rafflecopter Giveaway: Win an Amazon Gift Card

Lance & Ringo Tails Contest

http://www.rafflecopter.com/rafl/share-code/MTlhY2QyMDFkYWIxMjM2YjRjNGZlZGVhYjBhNWJhOjI=/?

The female is running a free contest through Rafflecopter that starts today! From April 7th through May 5th, enter for free through the Rafflecopter Link.



FAQs

Q: How much time do I have to enter the contest?

A: The free contest runs from 12:00 AM EST Friday, April 7th through 12:00 AM Friday, May 5th, 2017. That's about a month. Keep in mind that the closing date is one minute after 11:59 PM on May 4th, so it might help to think of May 4th as the deadline.

Q: Why is the contest so long? I want to find out if I win sooner.

A: One of the entry options is to review my books. You have three books to choose from, and you can review all three for more entries. The month-long contest gives participants a chance to read my books (they are all novella-length and shorter). There is also a limit to once a day for selecting the book review entry. Anyone wanting to get points for more than one book review will need that many number of days in order to get the points. So don't wait until the last day to do more than one book review.

Q: How do I enter?

A: Click the link and you'll be directed to the Rafflecopter entry form. Select from the list of options to increase your number of entries.

Q: Can I share this with my friends?

A: Of course! Feel free to share the link with anyone.

Q: How will the winner be chosen, and when will they be notified?

A: Rafflecopter has a random winner selection process, so I don't chose the winner. The winner is chosen by the program at random. The more entries, the more chances of winning. The winner will be notified on May 6, 2017, the day after the contest ends.

Q: Will every entrant be notified who the winner is?

A: The winner will be announced on this blog and on my social media (Facebook, Twitter, and e-newsletter). Only the winner will receive a personal email from me congratulating them and confirming the email address where I will send the $50 Amazon Gift Card.

Q: How do I complete the POST A BLOG COMMENT entry?

A: Pick one of the blogs on this site or the female's OTHER BLOG, read through it, and then click "Post a Comment" at the bottom. Once you post your comment, go back to the Rafflecopter entry form and click off that entry.

Q: It looks like I can just click that I made a comment without actually having to do it. Does that count?

A: Unless I see your comment here or on the Writing For the Love blog, your entries from POST A BLOG COMMENT will be removed.

Q: One of the entries says to SUBSCRIBE TO BRIA BURTON~STILL WRITING. How do I subscribe to the e-newsletter?

A: It's easy to sign up for my e-newsletter. Click HERE and fill out the form. You'll receive an email confirmation. Click that and you'll be officially subscribed. Then I will send you a CODE to enter in the Rafflecopter entry form so you can get credit for the entries.

Q: I read one of Bria Burton's books, but I don't know what to write in the review. Help!

A: Reviews can be simple and straightforward. You can describe what you liked about the book, if it made you laugh, cry, or feel good, etc. If there is a certain audience you think will like the book, you can mention that. For example, if you read Lance & Ringo Tails, you might tell all the pet lovers out there that they will....fill in the blank (like the book, love the book, want to rescue a dog and a cat, etc.).

Q: I did more than one book review, but the BOOK REVIEW ENTRY is only letting me click once. I should get more entries, right?

A: Right. What you'll do for each book review you complete is to send me (bria.nicole@briaburton.com) the links, and I will give you a code for each entry. You will only be able to do one code a day on the BOOK REVIEW ENTRY, so it's a good idea to make sure you don't wait until the last day to email me your links.

Q: I'd like to do the BOOK REVIEW ENTRY and get all those points! But I'm not familiar with the technical side of posting book reviews. Can you walk me through the process?

A: I'm happy to. Email me at bria.nicole@briaburton.com and I'll walk you through it.

Q: What's with the CODES?

A: There are several entries where I will send a CODE to you that confirms you have completed the entry, such as the BOOK REVIEW ENTRY and the SUBSCRIBE TO BRIA BURTON~STILL WRITING E-NEWSLETTER. The CODE means you earned the entry and will not have your entries removed. Only those who are cheating (selecting complete entries that they have not completed) will not receive CODES and therefore will have their entries removed when it's time for the winner to be selected. It's easy for me to verify who has completed each entry, so only cheaters won't prosper. Anyone who completes the entry properly will get the points and increase their chance of winning.
