Rules

  • only followers are invited to the party, sorry! (but it’s not that hard to get your own invitation)
  • the giveaway is being hosted through Rafflecopter, which can be found at the bottom of this post. all entries must be registered there to count.
  • reblogs and likes count (as does following), and you can reblog every day for a new entry as long as you register *EVERYTHING* on the rafflecopter.
  • YOU MUST BE COMFORTABLE GIVING ME YOUR FULL NAME AND ADDRESS
  • YOUR ASK BOX [OR SUBMIT] MUST BE OPEN AND EASILY ACCESSIBLE: if i can’t find it from just glancing at your blog, i’ll skip you and give your prize to someone else.
  • book prizes will be shipped directly from Amazon, so if they’ll ship to your country, you can enter (all other prizes will be shipped directly from me, btw)
  • just to see how many people have read all the rules, the secret code phrase is “a pocketful of words.” type it into the bonus section in the rafflecopter for extra entries. 
  • this giveaway is in no way associated with Tumblr, amazon, rafflecopter, etc. just me!
  • as noted above, there will be 10 winners
  • all winners will be notified within a few days of the contest ending; they will have 2 days after that to reply, or else their prize will be given to someone else
  • winners get to choose their prizes in the order that they are drawn, aka, first winner gets first dibs on the goods. the exception is book recommendations - first come, first serve. 
  • winners who receive a book can swap them out for another book in the series (unless it’s the scorpio races, in which case i might let you pick the raven boys instead)

sorry that that was so long! i hope i’ve covered everything, but if you have any questions, don’t be afraid to ask. if i find it necessary to make any changes to the rules or prizes, i’ll make additions to the original post and also add them to the giveaway page on my blog. you can also find a little more information on winning and prize distribution.
