Souvenirs and Other Stories releases on June 15th. Through the book’s launch period, we’ll be giving away free prizes on Twitter!
New prizes will be offered each week (spoiler alert: most prizes will be books).
To enter, simply Tweet something about Souvenirs and tag @ConiumReview in your Tweet. This should be a real Tweet that helps spread the word about Souvenirs. You could share a links to our website, Goodreads, Amazon, or whatever. Maybe share a picture. Come up with a jingle. It’s your choice, but make sure your post showcases at least five seconds of actual effort.
Most of the time, one Tweet will count as one entry. However, if we really like your Tweet, we may arbitrarily award you a bonus entry!
You may also increase your odds of winning by Tweeting more than once, but please space out your Tweets over several days. Do not spam. Seriously. Nobody likes spam.
And if we find out that you’ve created fake accounts to boost your odds of winning, you’ll be disqualified. Our prizes are just books, so relax. It’s not like you’ll be winning a million bucks. No need to cheat here.
We’ll make a numbered list of each entry and then roll a d20 or use a random number generator or something. If you’re a winner, we’ll contact you on Twitter and ask for your mailing address. We’ll only mail printed books to winners in the United States. If you live internationally, we can offer free digital copies instead.
