All emailed entries should include a numbered answer to the three trivia questions plus the tie breaker. For example, you need to send only 1, 2, 3, 4 — not the entire answer. In addition, if you are applying for extra points, you MUST supply the URLs for any websites where you have posted a review. You can include that information in your contest entry email or later, as long as you have done so before the contest entry deadline.
Here is how the extra point system works:
5 points for each correct answer (max 15 points) plus 5 for tiebreaker if needed.
25 points for a review posted at Amazon or B&N (max 50 points)
5 points for a review of the book at any other online retailer (max 20 points)
1 point for a mention of the contest on any website, blog or forum outside of Alt Read (max 10 points). Total maximum points for any entry is 100 including tiebreaker if necessary. All entries scoring higher than 85 points will be given the opportunity to have a character named after them in THE SCIONS OF SCOTIA (episode 3 in this series).
NOTE: Only one entry per Alt Read Member email address will be accepted. All member names and URLs will be verified, so make sure you send the correct ones. You are encouraged to bring in new Alternative Read members to enter this contest.
The author, Jon F. Baxley, is solely responsible for verifying entries and for prize distribution. Winners will be notified by email, at which time they will reply with their complete mailing address for prize delivery. The three winning copies can be personalized along with the author’s signature.
If you have any other questions, please contact Sassy on the Alternative Read Yahoo group or email Mr. Baxley at FiveStarAuthor@aol.com. Have fun!
