You are invited to our annual Christmas Party! We're giving away an Amazon gift ecard (electronic gift card only, value $100 minimum) to one lucky reader and we're giving away a lot of other prizes from the TRS prize vault and participating authors too! More details on the prizes to come...
Where is it going to be held?
The event will be held exclusively at our PARTY SITE.
When is it going to be held?
From December 17 - 23, 2013. Times? All day!
When will the prizes be given out?
The winner of the Amazon gift ecard will be selected at random on December 24, 2013. Other prizes from TRS and its participating authors will be assigned at each donor's earliest convenience following the end of the event.
Okay so HOW do I enter for the Amazon gift ecard?
Our authors will be posting during the event period at our PARTY SITE about their latest books and other entertaining topics. Comment on any of the posts at any time during the event (should be at least acceptable/polite comments because comments in poor taste may result in exclusion from the event), and fill out the gift card entry form that will appear at the party, and you will be entered into the drawing for the Amazon gift ecard.
How do I enter for the other prizes?
For other prizes donated by TRS and all participating authors, there will be easy to use giveaway forms at the PARTY SITE.
What's in it for authors to participate?
Authors in this event will be posting about their books and other related topics (can include blurbs, covers, videos, excerpts, recipes, invitations to events, and more). All are welcome! Authors can post as many times as they like during the event, get noticed, and participate in the giveaways. Authors can post 24 hours a day and that allows for authors and readers wherever they are in the world to participate. Authors can promote as many of their titles as they like.
Is this only open to TRS featured member authors?
No, this event is open to all authors be they members of TRS or not. For information on joining as a featured member of TRS, click here.
To participate, authors must agree to donate a prize for the event's giveaways. It can be a book (ebook/download, disk, or print), a gift card, or any other gift appropriate and desirable for our audience of romance readers. There is no minimum or maximum dollar value required. The participating author also agrees to send that prize to a winner of their choosing via email or snail mail.
Participating authors may also do other drawings and giveaways in conjunction with the events but this isn't required.
What can participating authors promote during the event?
Any romance genre, any heat level.
What happens if I can't post to the party site (computer trouble)?
Our staff will work with any author wishing to participate in the event to help with questions and troubleshooting.
What else? Like eligibility?
1) It must be legal to participate where you are.
2) You must be at least 18 years old to participate. Content on the party site may be mature in nature.
3) You understand that there will be one winner, chosen randomly from all acceptable comments during the event period and posted at the party site, who also filled out the Amazon gift ecard entry form, selected for the gift ecard.
4) Non-reviewing staff members from TRS are not eligible to participate.
5) By entering, you understand that there will be romance books and/or ebooks making up or included in the prizes. These will be of varying genre and heat level and by entering, you agree that TRS and its members and affiliates are not responsible for material the individual prefers and/or finds suitable or doesn't.
6) No substitution of any prize, for cash or other products, allowed.
