Explaining the Mid-Winter Contest

I've been getting a few messages with similar questions, so I decided to post a Mid-Winter Contest Q&A.

Mid-Winter Contest Q&A

Question: Why call it Mid-Winter? Why not call it the Christmas Contest?

Answer: On the world wide wide, there's a variety of people from different cultures and religions. On Facebook alone, I'm connected to a variety of people from all walks of life. Out of respect toward all cultures and religions, I decided to call this the Mid-Winter Contest. While the main theme of the contest is "in the spirit of giving," it's not exclusive to Christmas alone. Hanukkah, Winter Solstice, Makar Sakranti, to name a few, are also respected.

Question: What do you mean everyone wins? There's only one first place prize!

Answer: A draw will be done with all entries for the first prize of autographed copies of Ethereal Tales zine and the Eden Fell paperback. Another draw will be done for the Eden Fell ARC (pdf) and the winning short story, Tearing the Wings (pdf). So, in conclusion, everyone wins :)

Question: Why PDF?

Answer: PDF, Portable Document Format, is a universal file format. No special software or devices (like the Kindle) is required to read a PDF.

Question: Why can't I see the entry form? Oh, wait, now I can...

Answer: I apologize for that. The code I used for the form, made it viewable in Internet Explorer only and I didn't realize that. I've since adjusted the codes and now the form is viewable to everyone, even iPhone users.

Okay, that's all the questions so far. If anyone has anymore questions, let me know!
