Here are the official rules for the drawing for the laptop computer I will be giving away. The book, Lost Days, will be available for sale on Amazon by the second week of November, but no purchase is necessary because the answer to the question can be found right here on this blog.
1. You must be a member of the Lost Days Facebook group in order to be eligible to enter the contest.
2. Lost Days Facebook group members must provide the correct answer to the qualifying question to be officially entered in the drawing.
3. There are no limits to the number of times Lost Days Facebook group members can attempt to correctly answer the qualifying question.
4. Spread the word bonus – If you provide the correct answer to the qualifying question, you can earn extra entries for each member that joins the Lost Days Facebook group based on your referral.

8. PLEASE DO NOT post the answer to the qualifying question on Facebook or any other public forum, including, but not limited to blogs, messageboards, other social media sites, etc. And don’t send out a mass email to friends and family with the answer. They always make their way back to me, and it makes things very awkward.
9. Send the answer to email@example.com with the subject line “I know the answer.” The subject line is very important because it helps me streamline the process, so please remember to use it.
