Only 4 weeks left to go!
We're already down to just 5 weeks left!
After seeing all of the amazing pictures from my first #SLOANEAroundTheWorld contest, there's no way I can't do one more!!!
THE PLAN IS THE SAME AS BEFORE:
- If you participated in my last #SLOANEAroundTheWorld giveaway, you can still enter this contest -- but your entry must be with a brand new photo!
- If you've already received a SUMMER OF SLOANE bookmark, take it somewhere awesome where you live and snap a picture with the bookmark -- show me your town / city / country / a famous landmark / whatever!!!
- Share that picture on Twitter or Instagram (or both!) and make sure to tag the following:
A. Twitter: @ErinLSchneider1
B. Instagram: @ErinLSchneider (no 1 on the end)
C. Include the hashtag: #SLOANEAroundTheWorld
- Don't have a SLOANE bookmark yet? Email ALL of the following no later than Friday, April 1st (this allows enough time for bookmarks to be sent / received):
Links to either your Twitter or Instagram accounts (or both)
To: firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll do my best to send one your way! But PLEASE keep in mind the following before requesting -- you must be following me either on Twitter and / or Instagram and you also must be a book / YA lover / blogger / reader. I will not send bookmarks to anyone that is looking for a freebie and I will be checking to make sure the above is adhered to. Any requests received after the April 1st deadline will unfortunately not be fulfilled due to timing.
- With the timing weeks out from my actual launch, the contest will need to be shortened -- so, the giveaway will run for one month, from March 23, 2016 through April 20, 2016, in order to give everyone time to receive bookmarks, take the best picture, and get it posted!
- Images will then be shared here on my blog, from April 22, 2016 through April 28, 2016 -- and open during that time for votes from all viewers.
- The image with the most votes, wins!!! Of course, just to make it official, the winning picture will be announced on Friday, April 29, 2016!
SO HERE'S WHERE THINGS WILL DIFFER:
1st Place: The photo that gets the most votes will receive one signed HARDBACK copy of SUMMER OF SLOANE, plus some other goodies! Yep, you read that right -- a signed hardback copy of SLOANE!
2nd Place: The photo that gets the second most votes, will received one signed ARC of SUMMER OF SLOANE, plus some other goodies!
- You can be in the picture too, as long as the bookmark is clearly visible!
- All previous entrants must submit a new photo for entry into this contest!
- Get creative! The better the picture, the more votes you'll get!
- All entrants must follow either my Twitter or Instagram accounts for valid entry.
- Picture must be posted on either Twitter or Instagram by 11:59pm PST on April 20, 2016 for valid entry.
- Picture must also include my handles (you can tag me to the photo on Twitter) and the hashtag for valid entry.
- Giveaway is INTERNATIONAL and open to all book lovers around the world! Note: Giveaway and request for bookmarks is only open to those truly interested in books / reading / YA / blogging / etc. -- I will be checking and voiding any entries from handles that are promotional / giveaway / contest seeking individuals.
- All images entered will be shared by me on Twitter, Instagram, and my blog.
- Failure to comply with any/all fine print details void entries.
Good luck to all who enter -- I can't wait to see where you'll take SLOANE!!!
6 weeks and counting!
