Rules for Crystal King's Newsletter giveaways. 
No purchase necessary.

Who Is Eligible To Enter:

  • Book giveaway sweepstakes are open to legal residents of the United States who are 18 years of age or older at the time of entry.
  • By participating in the book giveaway sweepstakes, you agree to the unconditional agreement to these rules.
  • One entry per person. Multiple entrants cannot share the same email address. An entrant cannot enter more than once by using different email addresses. Any attempt by a single person to enter the sweepstakes more than once will result in a disqualification.
  • Subject to all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations. Void where prohibited.

 Entry Period

  • The book giveaway sweepstakes will begin on the date of each newsletter mailing/Substack post, 7AM ET/EST on either Tuesdays (note, before 2024, this date was Thursday) and ending at midnight ET/EST on the following Sunday. All entries must be received before the ending date/time.

How to Enter

  • To enter the book giveaway sweepstakes, respond by filling out the form within the timeframe specified in the newsletter and Substack post.  
  • Winners will be chosen by random selection from the subscriber pool and announced in the next post. Winners will also receive an email with information on how they will receive their book prize.

 What the Winner Receives and How/When Winners Will Be Notified:

  • A single winner will win one hardback, paperback, or digital book depending on the giveaway.  Each book giveaway will be fulfilled by the author of the book, not by Crystal King. The prize value will be equal to the cover price on each month's book, which may vary.

 Verification of Winners

  • Winners must be in the United States. 
  • Winners must reply back via email within 48 hours of receiving notification.
  • If a potential winner of a book cannot be contacted, fails to reply to the notification email within the required time period, or cannot take possession of the books within a timely fashion, the potential winner forfeits the book(s).
  • Books are nontransferable. A winner cannot have the books mailed to someone else.
  • In the event that a potential winner is disqualified for any reason, we will conduct a random drawing of all remaining eligible entries.

How Winners Will Receive Their Books:

  • Winners will provide a U.S. mailing address as part of the signup form, and books will be mailed directly to them. For books not yet published, they will be mailed upon publication date.
  • Each book will be shipped directly to the winner, usually by the author of the book themselves. 

 Other Rules:

  • I reserve the right to cancel the book giveaway sweepstakes at any time.
  • Use of any automated system to participate is prohibited and will result in disqualification.
  • I am not responsible for any errors on the part of the entrant, such as misspelling of email address, or inability to contact winner(s) via email or physical mailing address.
  • The winner is responsible for any taxes and fees associated with the book(s) receipt and/or use. 

By receipt of these books, the winner agrees to release and hold harmless the organizer of this giveaway from and against any claim or cause of action, including, but not limited to, personal injury, death, or damage to or loss of property, arising out of participation in the giveaway or receipt or use or misuse of any prize.

Limitations of Liability:
The book giveaway sweepstakes organizers are not responsible for: (1) any incorrect or inaccurate information, whether caused by entrants, printing errors or by any of the equipment or programming associated with or utilized in the sweepstakes/giveaway; (2) technical failures of any kind, including, but not limited to malfunctions, interruptions, or disconnections in phone lines or network hardware or software; (3) unauthorized human intervention in any part of the entry process or the sweepstakes/giveaway; (4) technical or human error which may occur in the administration of the contest/giveaway or the processing of entries; or (5) any injury or damage to persons or property which may be caused, directly or indirectly, in whole or in part, from entrant’s participation in the sweepstakes/giveaway or receipt or use or misuse of any prize. If for any reason an entrant’s entry is confirmed to have been erroneously deleted, lost, or otherwise destroyed or corrupted, entrant’s sole remedy is another entry in the contest/giveaway, provided that if it is not possible to award another entry due to discontinuance of the sweepstakes/giveaway, or any part of it, for any reason, the sweepstakes/giveaway organizer, at its discretion, may elect to hold a random drawing from among all eligible entries received up to the date of discontinuance for any or all of the prizes offered herein. In the event that production, technical, programming or any other reasons cause more than stated number of prizes as set forth in these rules to be available and/or claimed, the sweepstakes/giveaway organizer reserves the right to award only the stated number of prizes by a random drawing among all legitimate, unawarded, eligible prize claims.
