Contest to Win a New Kindle By Subscribing to My Blog By Email

September 14, 2014

Dear friends, family and constant readers,

The Free Kindle Contest:

During the coming month - September 15 through October 15, 2014, I am holding a special contest to giveaway a brand new Kindle from Amazon.  All you have to do is subscribe to my blog, "One Writer's Life," which comes out approximately 2-4 times a week.

How to Enter:

Go to my blog's homepage, scroll down and look on the right-hand navigation bar for "Follow By Email."  Enter your email address in the form and click "Submit."  You will receive an email confirmation of your desire to be subscribed.  Be sure to confirm through the link included in the email.

You only have to subscribe once and your name will be entered in for the drawing.  The winner will be notified no later than October 18, 2014 by email, so please be sure that you register using a valid email address.  If the winner does not respond with his or her mailing address within 48 hours of the notification email being sent, the prize will be forfeited and an alternative winner will be selected (same guidelines apply).  The contest prize - the Kindle - will be shipped after a mailing address is provided.  Once the prize is claimed, the winner's name will be announced on this blog.

Start and End Dates:

The contest will be held from Monday, September 15, 12 a.m. through Wednesday, October 15, 2014, 11:59 p.m.

How the Winner is Selected:

The winner will be chosen completely at random from a list of all who subscribed to the blog in the period specified.

Rules and Restrictions:

You must be 18 years old to participate.  You cannot be a member of the author's immediate family.  Your mailing address must be in the United States.  All previous winners will be excluded from the drawing.

So What If I'm Already Subscribed?  What About Me - the Constant Reader???

Okay, here's the deal!  You, too, can enter a separate contest by encouraging NEW readers to subscribe.  Let

your friends and family know about this blog and the opportunity to win a new Kindle, and if they like what they see and read, encourage them to subscribe to the blog.  If you recommendation results in a new subscriber, you will be entered in a separate contest to win a $25 Amazon gift certificate.

The way that you enroll in this contest is that you must send me an email and let me know who you have helped to subscribe.  I'll need a name and an email address in order to confirm that this person has subscribed.  That information will be disposed of once the verification is made to protect privacy.  The same rules to win the Kindle also apply in this contest as well.

If you have any questions about either contest, please email me and I will respond.

Good luck to all!  May the best person(s) win!  And may our blog community grow!
