Entangled Hunt at RT!

April 24, 2013


Love a good hunt?

Love great books?

Then look for Entangled Authors at the 2013 RT Booklover’s Convention!

RULES: 23 participating Entangled Publishing authors* want to meet YOU! See all the pretty book covers on the back of this flyer? ALL the authors of those books are hanging out at RT RIGHT NOW and each of us is armed with a ton of little personalized stickers. Find each one of us, and we’ll each affix our special sticker to your flyer. Save Christine Bell for last, since she’s the keeper of the prizes. Show her all 23 unique stickers and you’ve completed the hunt. First 3 people to get a sticker from all of us win! *We’ll be wearing our stickers on our name tags to help you find us, but scour any Entangled events or panels to find a bunch of us in one place! Once all prizes have been claimed, we’ll announce the winners & the end of the contest on Twitter (hashtag #EntangledHunt). If no one collects all 23 stickers by Sat. 5/4 at 10 p.m., we’ll extend a Twitter invitation for you to take a picture or scan your Scavenger Hunt flyer with stickers clearly visible & email or tweet it to us within 24 hrs. The 3 entrants with the MOST stickers will be our winners & prizes will be mailed. In the event of a tie, prizes will be awarded in the order that the pictures are received.
1st Prize: $300 Amazon/BN/Kobo/any e-book retailer gift card. Can be used for anything the winner would like, including an e-reader, tablet, books and more.
2nd Prize: A Kindle Fire & eBooks from all the participating authors. Kindle will be given to the winner at RT. Winner will provide an email address so that each author can gift a copy of their e-book via Amazon to them (See all the books included on the back of this flyer).
3rd Prize: $50 Gift Card from e-book seller of winner’s choice.
Spot Giveaways: In addition to the above prizes, each of the 23 participating authors will be doing two spot giveaways during RT.
