Many tours include a giveaway which Quill and Ink Book Tours coordinates through Rafflecopter unless run privately by the author. Quill and Ink Book Tours are in no way responsible for the giveaway except for picking the winner through Rafflecopter or Wheel of Names and providing the author with the e-mail and name of the winner(s). Prizes are handled by the author or publisher; unless mentioned otherwise, and they are responsible for distribution of the prizes and the giveaway.

  • No purchase or payment is required to enter or win. 
  • You must be 18 or older to enter the giveaways.
  • Void where prohibited by law.
  • The duration of the giveaway and the content of the prizes will be mentioned in the post and/or rafflecopter.
