Rules for the Contest:

  1. Giveaway closes on Thursday, August 31, 2023 at 6 pm, Seoul Time or 5 am, EST. Any entry after this time will not be counted.

  2. This is open to anyone around the world. Yet, if I notice any suspicious behavior (such as the use of bots), I might contact the person and remove them from the giveaway. I don’t want to do this, but I am worried of scammers trying to hijack this contest.

  3. No giveaway accounts, and your post must be “public”. If you only share your posts to your friends, your entry will not count.

  4. It is the discretion of the author (Christensen Low) to end this giveaway early. I don’t plan to, and I hope that it will run well until August 31st. Yet, please understand if I need to end it early. I will then give away the prizes to those who have already entered.

  5. This giveaway is not affiliated with Instagram or Facebook.

 

Prizes:

  1. The first place winner can choose from these prizes:  A. $70 Amazon gift card B. A signed copy of my novel mailed to you by ship (it will take up to two months to get to you). This copy is Edition 0 and was printed by myself for a few select people. I only made 30 copies, and I am down to around five. You will get one of the last! I will do my best to package it to where it is protected and will arrive safely, but there are no guarantees. C. A dojang with your name carved on it and mailed to you. A dojang is a traditional name stamp. They are still used in Korea but only rarely now (or for some official business). Yet, they are pretty easy to make here. ;) I will consult you on what type you might like and then choose the dojang. I will also do my best to get your name written correctly on the dojang, but I will coordinate that. This will be mailed to you by ship (which can take up to two months to arrive). I will do my best to package it to where it is protected and will arrive safely, but there are no guarantees.

  2. Two runner-ups will receive a signed bookmark for my novel (one that I will choose for you). This will be mailed to you by ship (which can take up to two months to arrive). I will do my best to package it to where it is protected and will arrive safely, but there are no guarantees.

***I will take a picture of myself shipping all of these and send them to the winners. :)

 

How the Winner Will Be Drawn:

  1.  After 6 pm (Seoul Time) on Thursday, August 31st, I will draw names (winners). Most likely that will be the morning of Friday, September 1st.

  2. I will notify the winner soon after the drawing via DM to arrange for the delivery of their prize and then a post for everyone to see.
