GENERAL CONTEST INFO:
The contests end on 12/22 and all winners will be announced on Christmas Eve. You will receive your prize directly from the author, please be aware that it may take them some time to send them out due to the holidays. Please note due to the adult content in every prize, you MUST be 18 to enter. International readers are welcome to enter. PLEASE LEAVE YOUR FIRST AND LAST NAME as well as a valid email where we can contact you. You CAN enter any of the contests on any day. So, if you are just finding out about the contest and it is day 7, you can go back to the beginning and do the things to enter each individual contest. REMEMBER the more things you do, the more entries, the greater the chances of winning.

IMPORTANT CONTEST RULES:
1. This is the one rule you need to pay very close attention to. Since most of the prizes will be electronic books, you absolutely CANNOT give, trade, forward, copy or download to a site the books in any way shape or form. You will be given one copy for your personal use. It is against copyright laws and illegal to do so. You may be faced with fines or potential legal action from the publisher if you are caught. Furthermore you will get a BIG whack of coal from me and no longer be eligible to enter giveaways at BBB in the future. We take e-piracy VERY seriously at Bitten by Books. Thank you for your adherence to this very important rule.

2. If you aren’t interested in receiving the prizes, please do not enter any of the contests. ALL entries go into the general pool, and you could potentially win anything that is offered up here in the next 15 days.

3. You have SEVEN days from the day the author contacts you to claim your prize, failure to contact them will forfeit your prize. The author can at that time, choose either to re- award the prize to another entrant or not.

4. The prize stated IS the prize you will receive, there will be no substitutions, trades or changes. No exceptions. Please do not ask. If for some reason you do not wish to claim your prize, please let the author know as soon as possible. They then have the option to re-award it or not.

5. Contests are open to our international readers UNLESS otherwise noted. Please do not enter non-international contests, the good news is that there is only one contest day that is not open to our international readers.

6. Bitten by Books is in NO way responsible for the prizes being offered in any of the contests. If for some reason a contributor does not honor their prize, there is nothing we can or will do about it. We are not worried that this will happen, but we want to be very clear that WE are not offering these prizes, the authors who participate are and it is their responsibility to fulfill their prize obligations.

7. These rules are subject to change or be modified without prior written notice.

8. Contests are void where prohibited.
