Win an iPad mini!
That’s right. In preparation for the release of my newest novel, The Spirit Of…, I have put together an online scavenger hunt for all of my current and future fans, the winner of which will win a brand new iPad mini. All you have to do is find, answer or complete as many of the tasks as you can, earning points along the way. Some of the tasks are simple, while others will demand that you do a little more digging.
Three prizes are up for grabs:
The Grand prize – iPad mini.
2nd place – $75 gift Amazon gift card
3rd place – a signed collection of all of my books (If you already purchased the print editions, the winner will receive a $10 Amazon Gift Card per book they already have).
Now there wouldn’t be a contest without some rules:
- No purchase required to play and win.
- There must be at least 50 participants to qualify for the distribution of prizes. If there are less than 50 participants, I have the right to cancel the contest in full if I so choose.
- You do not have to answer or complete every task to participate.
- Points for each task are on a scale from 1 to 10, and have been tabulated based on the importance and difficulty of the task.
- The highest point total wins. Final decisions on total point counts are mine, based on the validity of the answer and the completion of each task.
- If there is a tie, the winner will be decided by a Bonus Task, which will be sent to the participates who have tied. Those participants will then have three days to complete the bonus task. The winner will be chosen at my discretion, based on the answers provided.
- To be eligible for prizes, entries must be received by 11:59 p.m. on May 31, 2016. Entries can be sent via email, a personal message on Facebook or a direct message on Twitter.
- When sending your entries, place the number of the task followed by the answer (or required task URL/info, as listed in parenthesis next to the task). If sending via email, please put “The Spirit Of… Scavenger Hunt” in the Subject Line. Any and all attachments will be discarded and the participant will be disqualified from the contest.
- I’m sorry to say, but my family is ineligible for prizes. That shouldn’t keep you from playing, just know that your entries will be treated as non-contest entries.
- Contest is open to anyone with an Internet connection.
With that out of the way, please post any questions in the comments section, have fun and good luck!
