Finally, a Reader to read those ebooks with

Announcing The Cerridwen Press Spring Contest!

READERS! Here's the information you've been looking for!
Go here for rules you can download:

Here are the rules for the First Annual Cerridwen Spring Giveaway:

· The Grand Prize winner must be a United States resident (due to mailing and
custom costs, we cannot ship the grand prize out of the country).

· You must be a member of the Cerridwen Chat Yahoo group to participate in
this contest. All clues and contest information will be posted on that loop. To
subscribe, send a blank email to:

· You cannot share information about the contest with other readers. All
participants should act independently.

· Every day, starting on March 1 and ending on March 15, a clue will be
posted on the Cerridwen Chat loop. This clue will lead you to a specific web site
or blog location. You must find the hidden/special word on that web site or
blog. There will be fifteen words to find, one for each day of the contest. The
word will be in a special font, something like this so it will stand out and
you should be able to see it easily. If you want to be eligible for the grand
prize, you have to find these words. Note the word and the location where you
found it.

· You also need to find a tree icon and note that location. Beginning on
March 1, look for the tree icon on the web site or blog of the participating
authors (see the author list at the end of this page). Make a note of the location
of the tree icon or blog.

· The contest ends on March 15 at 5 PM. The tree icons and the 'secret words'
will be removed from the author locations at that time.

· Assemble the words you've found into a sentence. Send the sentence and the
location of the tree icons you found in the following format in the body of an
email to
