September Posting Contest -- Win two $25 Amazon Gift Cards!

Post by Scott » 02 Sep 2017, 12:33

Another two prizes are up for grabs!

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

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

The September Book of the Month is Bluewater Walkabout.

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.

Topics must actually be about the book. Overly general discussion topics or topics not really about the book will be moved and not counted towards the contest.

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

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

If you have any questions let me know.

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

Bluewater Walkabout tells how Tina’s travels promoted the healing of deeply rooted traumas in her life: a sexual assault like the loss of her first born baby
