One of 25 free books will be randomly assigned to each post. When commenting, be sure to use a valid email address so I can contact you and mail you your book ASAP! Feel free to comment on all 25 posts to increase your chances of winning, but only one comment per post is necessary (many comments on one post will not increase your odds of winning).
One winner will be chosen randomly for every post, provided that there are at least five comments made on the post and limiting one free book per winner. I will contact winners by email and ship free books as soon as possible, factoring in shipping delays over weekends, holidays, personal delays, etc.
The time and date the winner will be selected will depend on when the post goes up on DaveUrsillo.com and when enough comments are made for a random selection to occur!
So get reading, get commenting, and win a free book!
