Giveaway Rules

, by Christopher D. Hudson

What's life without rules?  While I'd love to give books and other stuff away with a smile and handshake, the law requires that I give you all the boring legal speak you could possibly imagine. Let me sum up the main points. Then, whoever is fighting insomnia can read the real, official list of disclaimers below.

Short list:
* Winners must provide a US mailing address. Sorry, we just don't ship internationally.
* You've must be 18 years old to win. Sorry. Blame the legal system.
* You can't enter from more than one account. No bots. Just humans without split personalities.
* By participating you recognize that the promotion is in no way sponsored, endorsed, administered, or associated with Facebook, Twitter, Google, Amazon, Barack Obama, Your Mother, Your Third Grade Teacher or anyone else. It's just me spreading good cheer by handing out books because I feel like it. There's no catch. No third parties. No fine print. etc.
