I want to celebrate and give stuff away!

If you hadn't heard, my book, Ulterior Motives, is up on Amazon! Yay. And to celebrate, I want to give stuff away. But things, well, they are a changin' here on the interwebz and I want to change with them. So I'm trying out a couple of things.

One being Rafflecopter. I've never used it and I'm curious as to how it works. And I'm trying to figure out the FTC rules about sweepstakes. I think I've got them, but I need to have a giveaway to try it out. So here's the deal, fill out the Rafflecopter form below and you'll be entered for a chance to win a swag package from me! The terms and conditions should be listed under "Terms and Conditions" on the Rafflecopter badge but, just in case they aren't (because I've never used Rafflecopter before so I don't know), here they are!

**I will be giving away one swag pack only**

***By submitting the entry form below you certify that you are eligible to enter and agree to be bound by these rules***

*Buying Will Not Help You Win.

are the same as the chances of someone who 
purchases something.  It is illegal to give any 
advantage to buyers in a sweepstakes.

- Giveaway sponsor cannot be held responsible if prize is lost or damaged while in transit to the winner
-  Winner will be selected on July 14, 2013 and sponsor will email the winner. The winner will have 14 days to claim prize
-  Entrants have the right to obtain the winner's name for 30 days after contest completion. And the name of the winner will be posted on or can be solicited through email to Chandra AT
-  Giveaway sponsor reserves the right to obtain winner's name for purposes of prize dissemination, as well as the right to publicize winner's name for promotional purposes
-  If potential prize winner forfeits or does not claim their prize, prize will be re-awarded, at sponsor’s sole discretion
-  The prize will be awarded
-  The giveaway sponsor shall be held harmless in the event that the prize in some way negatively impacts the winner
-  Giveaway home state is Texas and shall abide by applicable laws thereof

So, what are you entering to win? Here's a picture:
There is a small Chandra Ryan tote bag, a stress ball (They call it a ball but it's actually more of a square. Still squishy though!), a flashlight keyring, and a shot glass. I'll even throw in the business cards because they're in the image! 

*There might be slight variations in actual prize appearance when received due to image quality. (Really, do I have to state this?).

  1. there is no winner because no one entered the contest. I'll do another contest soon. After I figure out what went wrong with this one.
