Ultimate Reviewer's Challenge

Addicted 2 Novels, Karen's Addictions, Tiger's All Consuming Booksand I are hosting an event called the Ultimate Reviewers Challenge. Throughout the month of August, we invite all bloggers to post and link as many reviews as possible.

When the event begins (August 1st), we'll each have a Mr. Linky on our blogs where you can post your name, the name of your blog and a link to your review. At the end of the event, we'll each pick a winner and that person will win an Ultimate Prize Pack!

*You must have a blog
*These must be real reviews, meaning more than just a couple of sentences describing the book. We'll be checking to make sure you're posting legitimate reviews!
*All reviews must have been posted for the first time during the month of August 2010. You can't just enter all your old reviews.
*No one review can be posted twice on the same blog. That doesn't mean you can't post the same review on each one of our blogs (for a total of 4 entries per review), just not the same review twice on one blog.
*This contest will be international. There will be 4 winners total!
*Contest ends August 31st at midnight, CST.
*Rules and regulations are subject to change depending on current situations. Don't worry, you'll be informed.

We'll each keep you updated on the prize packs as well as the event. If you are an author or blogger and would like to donate books or swag to the prize package please email me at fwiw(dot)kea(at)gmail(dot)com.

Throughout the month of August, we will have interviews and guest posts from your favorite authors. We'll also be having a fun "Better Know a Blogger" feature running all month! If you're a blogger and wish to participate in that email me! (It's just a few questions about your blog as a way to introduce yourself & your blog to others)

 Special thanks to Sandy from Scribing Shadows and Cam for making them for us.**

Now, we do ask that you sign up for the event at each of our blogs. Please fill out the Mr. Linky below if you plan on participating.

*NOTE* Yes, I know the Mr. Linky says "Blog Fodder." Just ignore it. It should say Ultimate Reviewers Challenge. :P
