Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member!

February Contest! Two $25 Amazon Gift Cards!

Post by Scott » 01 Feb 2017, 12:25

Another two prizes are up for grabs!

Prize 1-- The author of the topic in the February Book of the Month Discussion Forums that gets the most unique replies by the end of February wins a $25 Amazon Gift Card. :D

Prize 2-- Whoever posts the most combined replies in February on other people's topics overall in the February Book of the Month Discussion Forums wins a $25 Amazon Gift Card.

The February Book of the Month is The Diary Of An Immortal (1945-1959) by David J Castello.

Very short topics and posts will not be counted. Off-topic or meaningless or 'fluffy' posts will be deleted by the moderators.

For Prize 1, "unique replies" means replies by different people, not the same person. So, for example, if one person posts four replies on one of your topics, that counts as only one.

I am not eligible to win (since it's my own contest).

You can check the current results anytime on Cool Stats Page.

If you have any questions let me know.

Remember, it's meant to be fun! :D

Scott you write very interestingly whether it is a contest hosting or a novella. This contest sure provides motivation to read the diary of an immortal.
I also read the sample of your book yesterday and could not get your sentence " the joke lacked so much in funniness that I chose not to waste my brain neurons trying to remember it". It was so funny I smiled through out the day thinking about it. :lol:
What is the most special thing I did today- I was MYSELF. Happy and in love and unapologetically myself.

Thank you for doing this! It is kind, and yet it also shows faith that many of us are here for the real purpose of reading and discussing what we read.

Thanks Scott!
