Midwestern Authors Book Giveaway
The nitty gritty:

  • Once you retweet the contest tweet you are automatically entered into the drawing for the prizes for that day and the grand, 1st, 2nd and bonus prizes at the end of the week
  • Must have a valid Twitter account to enter
  • You get one entry per day—that means if you RT the contest tweet every day of the contest, you have a shot at winning all the daily prizes, and you get 5 chances to win the prizes at the end of the week.
  • Winners are chosen by Random.org random number generator after each RT is assigned a number.
  • Daily winners will be announced on Twitter, and only RTs from that day will count toward that day’s prize.
  • If you enter and win a daily prize, you can still enter, once per day, for the rest of the contest duration for a better shot at the final prize. You can only win one daily prize per twitter account.

    Being an ex-Midwesterner living in San Francisco, I enjoy very much all you do. And I’ve tweeted the contest. Well done!
