Please read to understand how For What It's Worth collects and uses information

Author Review Requests

If you contact For What It's Worth for a review request: I keep your email on file until I make a accept/decline decision - usually within 7-10 business days.

In the event I decline your request - the email is deleted and no information stored.

If I accept your request - your email remains on file until our transaction (a review or what ever we have agreed to) is complete - then deleted.


1. No Purchase Necessary to enter. Void where prohibited by law.

2. Entrants must be at least 13 years old, as I am legally prohibited from collecting personal information from children 12 and under.

3. Winners will be contacted by email using the address provided and must respond within 48 hours or I reserve the right to pick another winner.

4. I use USPS Media mail or Amazon Prime for shipping to U.S. winners - The Book Depository for International winners. I will send you proof of mailing - but I am not responsible for replacing lost or damaged items.

5. Odds of winning depend on the number of entries. I use either Rafflecopter or Random. org to choose a winner

6. By entering a giveaway, you a) agree to these rules and my privacy policy and b) certify that you are 13 years or older and reside in a state/country where the giveaway is legal.

7. By entering and/or accepting a prize, you a) agree that unless stated otherwise, the prize is a secondhand book with little to no retail value and b) agree that you will hold me, the book's author and the book's publisher harmless in the event that your entry or the prize negatively impacts you in any way.

8. Duplicate entries and/or entries that do not follow giveaway rules will be deleted or disqualified. Only one set of entries per person/ISP address.

Rules may be modified as necessary.

Personal information collected and how it's used for giveaways:

Any personal information collected on this blog by myself is used for giveaway purposes only. I will not sell or share your information except in a manner that allows your prize to be delivered. *For example - I will have to give Amazon or TBD your address in order to send you a book.

I delete all personal information collected after 8 weeks or until you inform me that you have received your book/prize and our transaction is complete. Whichever comes first. 

Whenever possible I use either Google Docs or Rafflecopter to minimize making your information public. For those giveaways that require you to leave personal information, such as an email, in the comments area I cannot guard against others collecting your information so use caution when leaving personal information in the comments section.
