I’ve been thinking lately about fun ways to spread the word about A Stiff Kiss as well as giving away some fun prizes. I came to this thought, and hope you all have just as much fun playing the game as I did creating it!The rules are simple. Below you will find fifteen questions. Your goal is to comb the net and find the answers. For each question I’ve given you the source for the answer, but it’s still your job to locate it. This contest is open to all residents of planet Earth so spread the word!
Once you’ve completed all the questions or done your best you must email your answers to me HERE!
There are three prize packages up for grabs. For those of you who manage to get all fifteen answers correct you will be entered to win:The Grand Prize Package including an A Stiff Kiss Canvas Tote bag and a Signed Print Copy of A Stiff Kiss as well as some signed Swag.
For the close but not all correct answers you will be entered to win:
The second Place Prize Package including an A Stiff Kiss T-shirt, signed swag and one E-Copy of A Stiff Kiss.
Because I believe everyone should have a chance to win a prize... For the rest of you who took the time to answer the questions whether you got them all right or not will be entered to win:
The Third Place Prize Package of an A Stiff Kiss Mouse-pad and some signed swag.
