Contests & Giveaways & Privacy

Official Rules

Monthly Author Interview Sweepstakes:

Each month I attempt to schedule an interview or two with an author who has a new release they’re giving away. The rules, entry dates, and prizes are included with the Rafflecopter widget at the end of each post. You may also enter by emailing mjagears AT gmail DOT com with your name, address, and the link to the giveaway within the stated time frame. The opportunity to play may be affected by local ability to access the Internet at any particular time.

Odds of winning depend upon the number of entries. The winner is chosen at random, announced by the Rafflecopter widget, and will be notified by email once the contest is over. Should the winner(s) be unreachable, fail to respond to notification within a week, or fail to provide correct contact data, the prize is forfeited and not transferable. Participation in this promotion indicates agreement to abide by these Official Rules. Failure to comply may result in disqualification from this promotion and a forfeiture of any prizes.

The sponsors are not responsible for: incomplete, lost, late, damaged,scrambled or misdirected entries or other errors of any kind whether human, mechanical or electronic, which may limit a user’s ability to participate in any giveaway.

Taxes, if any, are the sole responsibility of the winner. Sponsor assumes no responsibility or liability for any damages, losses, or injury resulting from the acceptance or use of any prize.

Void where prohibited. No purchase necessary.

Please do not enter if you are not 18 years or older unless your parent or guardian will verify that it is permitted. USA only. Entering the give away is considered a confirmation of eligibility on behalf of the entrant in accord with these rules and any pertaining to local/federal laws.
