Giveaway Guidelines

Hawaii Book Blog often receives promotional copies of books or sometimes purchases extra copies to be signed and given away via our blog and twitter feeds. Whenever we are able, we are happy to give away free books to our readers! Please see the following standards regarding blog/twitter giveaways:

  • Entrants must be at least 18 years of age.
  • Giveaways are not raffles or contests, no purchase of any kind is necessary. Just a love of books and a willingness link back to HBB, re-tweet, or comment. 🙂
  • Unless otherwise specified, giveaway winners will be chosen among the pool of qualified entrants completely at random and without prejudice.
  • Unless otherwise specified, entrants must live within the US and it’s territories (for now!).  All giveaways are void where prohibited and the sponsor (if there is one) chooses which countries they are willing to ship to.
  • Winners will be notified via e-mail or private message (if on Twitter or Facebook). If we do not receive a response within three (3) business days, another winner will be selected instead.
  • Upon acceptance by email, winner acknowledges that we may use his or her first name and/or user-name along with town/state on the blog in an announcement that the giveaway has ended.
  • There is no cash equivalent or exchange for prizes (remember these are mostly from us or from authors who have donated books to be given away).
  • Hawai’i Book Blog reserves the right to cancel a giveaway at any time.  Terms of any giveaway also may be subject to change at any moment’s notice.  Honestly, these situations will probably never happen, but we want to make sure that you are aware of the possibility.

This page may be updated from time to time so you’re welcome to check back. If there are special circumstances to a giveaway, details will be given within that specific giveaway announcement post.
