When authors contribute tips to the show we ask them if they’d be willing to contribute some number of copies to engaged listeners. It’s not required, and we really appreciate it when they contribute to the community in this way.
Typically we will provide instructions for how to enter to win one of these available copies. Usually there will be a form on that tip’s page where you can enter to win and/or we will select the highest rated comment(s) on the designated drawing date. We always try to specify when winners will be chosen and once chosen will also try to update the page with a shoutout to the winners and removal of the entry from.
Book distribution is completely at the author’s discretion. We will provide the winner’s contact info and it’s up to the author whether they want to send a physical copy of the book or an electronic version. Due to shipping costs physical books might only be sent within the US. Again this is completely at the author’s discretion.
We will also limit the number of times one individual can win a book or other giveaway. Currently that limit is once every 60 days, and we reserve the right to change that number at any time, without notice.
Thanks for being an active and engaged member of the community. May the odds be ever in your favor (the more you participate the more they improve). Good luck!
