Sizzling Summer Contest

Want to win an eReader? Great, because Passionate Reads is giving away a KINDLE and a bunch of other prizes as part of our Sizzling Summer Contest!

What’s Up For Grabs: The grand prize winner will be taking home a brand new Kindle wi-fi, plus a $20 Amazon gift card to get you started.

Runner up prizes include a $50 Amazon gift card, $25 Amazon gift card, and two $10 Amazon gift cards.

When Is The Contest: The Sizzling Summer Contest starts on July 5th and will run through July 18th, with the winners being announced on July 20th. There will be one post each day of the contest, so be sure to check back each day. The easiest way to make sure you don’t miss a day’s post is to subscribe to our feed.

How Do I Play: The rules are simple!

Each day a Passionate Reads authors will be featured. A special contest icon will be hidden on the author’s website. Somewhere. 🙂 All you need to do is go to their website and locate the icon. When you find it:

1. Send and email to passionatereads (at) gmail (dot) com and provide the link to the page the icon was on. (I hope you realize to replace the at with a @ sign, the dot with a . 🙂 ) So for example, for Suzy Q’s fictional day, the link you would provide would be: suzyq.fake/books. Please put the author’s first name in the subject line of the email. So, for our example, your subject line would simply say: Suzy.

2. In the email, along with the link, tell us one thing you learned about the author from the page you found the icon. (Going back to our Suzy example: Suzy has four books currently out. Or… Suzy Q’s day job is a bartender.) Anything you want from that page.

Pretty simple, right? You will earn one point for each correct answer. The more points you earn during the contest, the more chances you have to win. The contest works like a raffle, the more points you accumulate, the more chances you get to win. It’s not “most points wins.” Don’t be discouraged if you think you’re falling behind. Keep going! Every point counts!!

What Does The Icon Look Like: Like this!


How Will I Know If I Won A Prize: We will announce the winners here, on Passionate Reads, on July 20th. So mark the day on your calendar, and make sure to come back and see if you’ve won the grand prize, or any of our fantastic runner up prizes!

Note: This contest is open to US and Canadian readers only. Apologies to our international friends.
