The Magic of Fiction
As my way of thanking you for celebrating the release of The Magic of Fiction with me this week, I’m giving away a prize pack of reference books. The prize pack winner will be randomly chosen from comments made at the 10 eligible launch week articles.
No purchase is necessary to be in the running for the prize pack; if you comment, you have a chance to win. And the more you comment, the more chances you have. (Only legitimate comments will be considered, so comments such as “hi there” will be deleted from the articles.) Eligible comments must be made by noon EDT on Friday, March 18, 2016. Comments added after that time will not be eligible in the drawing. The winner will be chosen and announced on this article Friday afternoon.
Limitations & Restrictions
~ Books in the prize pack are subject to availability.
~ Winner is responsible for custom duties or taxes if applicable.
~ My intention is to make this prize pack available to the winner no matter the country of residence. However, if circumstances prevent delivery of the books in a timely manner and/or at a reasonable shipping fee, I reserve the right to make other arrangements, even to a voiding of the prize. (I don’t imagine that there will be any issues, but shipping access to the winner could conceivably be a problem in some parts of the world.)
The prize pack includes:
– a searchable PDF of The Magic of Fiction
and winner’s choice of three (3) books from the following list:
– Grammatically Correct (Stilman)
– New Oxford Dictionary for Writers and Editors
– New Hart’s Rules
– Fowler’s Dictionary of Modern English Usage
– The Oxford Dictionary of Current English
– Webster’s New World College Dictionary (5th ed.)
– The Chicago Manual of Style (16th ed.)—winner’s choice of print edition or one-year subscription to CMOS online
