Our annual holiday party is open to all who celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and more. We’ll be holding the event on our party site as normal and on our Facebook page.
Where is it going to be held?
When is it going to be held?
From December 19th through Midnight EST December 23, 2018.
What do authors do?
Authors in this event will be posting about their books and other related topics (can include blurbs, covers, videos, excerpts, recipes, invitations to events, and more). All are welcome! Authors can post as many times as they like during the event, get noticed, and participate in the giveaways. Authors can post 24 hours a day and that allows for authors wherever they are in the world to participate. Authors can promote as many of their titles as they like.
New! All authors will be set up to post on our party site but if you just want to post on Facebook, no problem! Post either place or both!
When will the prizes be given out?
The winner of the gift card will be selected at random on December 24th. Other prizes from TRS, its featured authors, and all other participating authors will be assigned at each donor’s earliest convenience following the end of the event.
Okay so HOW do I enter for the gift card?
Complete the entry form at the party site for the gift card giveaway and you will be entered into the drawing for the gift card.
How do I enter for the other prizes?
For other prizes donated by TRS, some of its featured authors and other participating authors, there will be easy to use giveaway forms at the party site. Other authors will be awarding prizes to those who comment on their posts. There may be other contests/chance to win prizes as outlined by the individual author or participant.
Is this only open to TRS featured member authors?
No, the event is open to all authors be they members of TRS or not. To participate, authors must agree to donate a prize appropriate for a romance reader (any value) for the event’s giveaways. Participating authors may also do other drawings and giveaways in conjunction with the events but this isn’t required.
What can participating authors promote during the event?
Any romance genre, any heat level.
What happens if I can’t post to the party site (computer trouble)?
Our staff will work with any author wishing to participate in the event to help with questions and troubleshooting. If you’re new to our parties, please try a test post(s) before the party if possible. Troubleshooting is a lot less stressful all around if done when the event is not in progress.
What else? Like eligibility?
1) It must be legal to participate where you are.
2) You must be at least 18 years old to participate. Content on the party site may be mature in nature.
3) You understand that there will be one winner, chosen randomly from all acceptable comments during the event period and posted at the party site and who also signed up on the entry form, selected for the gift card.
4) Non-reviewing staff members from TRS are not eligible to participate.
5) By entering, you agree that TRS is not responsible for items lost in the mail.
6) By entering, you understand that there will be romance books and/or ebooks making up or included in the prizes.
