Unbound Worlds’s Books=Gifts Holiday Extravaganza Sweepstakes


“You will be haunted,” resumed the Ghost, “by Three Spirits.”
Scrooge’s countenance fell almost as low as the Ghost’s had done.
“Is that the chance and hope you mentioned, Jacob?” he demanded, in a faltering voice.
“It is.”
“I–I think I’d rather not,” said Scrooge.
“Without their visits,” said the Ghost, “you cannot hope to shun the path I tread. Expect the first to-morrow, when the bell tolls One.”

–Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol

Book-and-Bow-altered.jpgIn Charles Dickens’ classic A Christmas Carol, Scrooge is paid a rather unpleasant visit by his dead friend Marley, who surprises him further by announcing that he’s arranged for a few guests to drop by and haunt Scrooge straight. Despite our (or my) love for this story (especially the original written work, read it if you haven’t), we here at Unbound Worlds have been busy crafting a sweepstakes that is the exact opposite of the scene excerpted above.
For starters, we’re not dead. Though, depending on where you’re reading this, we might be surprising you with this announcement while you’re in your bedroom. I have no way of controlling this, though. And while we will be visiting you at night (if you’re on the east coast), you’re countenance is not about to fall either, but there is “a chance and hope” in store.
Okay, enough being cute (or trying and failing miserably). It’s December 1st and we’re kicking off our Books=Gifts Holiday Extravaganza Sweepstakes, a give away effort so big, we had to come up with a name large enough to match it! And we almost did it. I say almost because…well, you’ll find out soon. In the meantime, let’s review how this shin-dig is going to work.
Starting tonight and carrying on every day (Monday through Friday) until December 24th, we’ll post a new featured prize or prize pack at 7pm (EST). From that point until the next day’s post, you will be able to enter to win at our designated sign up page. Feel free to bookmark it as you’ll be able to view the featured title or titles from there as well.
You will need to enter for each day’s prize. We decided to do this as a way to attempt to ensure that you win the prizes you’re most interested in taking home and will keep you from “competing” against other entrants who might not be interested in the item that you do want.
Anyway, that’s about it. We’ll give you a form, you fill it out, and we pick a winner the next day. And we’ll do that over, and over, and over, and over, and…you get the picture.
For the tantalizing and excruciatingly long list of what we’re giving away over the course of this sweepstakes, then follow on after the jump…
