Kindle Contest - Clarfications, Comments, and Notes

| writing | blogging |

I definitely spoke too soon yesterday when I stated that there was no interest. There is a lot of buzz going on around the internet, and I have mostly twitter and forums to thank for that. :)

I have been asked some very good questions and I would like to clarify them here and will also update the sticky note on the top of the page.

  1. You DO NOT have to live in the US to enter this contest. You can be anywhere in the world, as long as the work is in English.

  2. I would prefer that the document be in .doc format so that I can upload it easily to this blog.

  3. Also, this is optional, but I think it would be nice to include a brief bio about the author, along with links to any blogs or websites that you may have.

If there are any more questions please feel free to comment here or contact me at my email. I am really looking forward for the short stories to start coming in!

Best of Luck, and thank you for entering, reading, and voting !
