The Loose Id authors are holding a bash!And we're giving away prizes!

WHERE:The Loose Id Community on Yahoo Groups. http://groups.yahoo.com/group/LooseId_community/.You must be a member of the group to participate.Authors will be posting excerpts and chatting all weekend, not just in and around the contest.

WHEN:
Starting with June 8th, the June Bash will take place Friday through Sunday for four successive weekends. The participating Loose Id authors will be posting excerpts on the following themes:- June 8-10 - All "real" or "true to life" fiction books-
June 15-17 - All speculative fiction books-
June 22-24 - All "real" or "true to life" books-
June 29-30 & July 1 - all speculative fiction books

"Real" or "true to life" fiction means there are no fantastic or "out of this world" elements to the story; the category could include (but does not need to be limited to) straight contemporary, historical or adventure stories.
"Speculative fiction" means that there are speculative elements or paranormal elements to the story, which could include fantasy, paranormal, and science fiction.NOTE: Interpretation of the themes is completely up to the author and is not enforced.

PRIZES:
One $25, two $10 and two $5 Loose Id gift certificates will be given away each of the four weeks.
At the end of the four weeks, one grand prize of a Loose Id VIP membership will also be given away.

HOW TO ENTER:
During the contest days, the authors will be posting official excerpts. The subject of each official excerpt post will include the phrase "JUNE BASH EXCERPT". Example, "JUNE BASH EXCERPT: Heaven by Jet Mykles".

Between 12AM EST on each Friday and 11:59PM EST on each Sunday, send an email to liauthors @ yahoo . com (no spaces) and include the following from any ONE official excerpt:1) Author's name2) Title of the book for the excerpt3) The name--first or last or both--of any one of the main characters mentioned in the excerpt

Again, the excerpt containing your information must be for the current weekend, not the previous weekend and the words "June Bash Excerpt" must be in the subject line. Entry emails will only be accepted between Friday and Sunday.

You only have to include infomation from ONE excerpt, not all of them.

Each entrant may send ONE email per weekend. With the exception of the grand prize, each winner may only win once for the month.

On the Wednesday following each weekend, the winners of the prizes will be posted by email to the group. Each winner will also be sent an email directly. Winners have until Friday to respond. Those winners who do not respond by Friday will lose the prize and another entrant from the appropriate weekend will be selected to win the prize.

Winners of each week's gift certificates are not eligible to win gift certificates in the following weeks.

The grand prize of the VIP membership will be awarded to one entrant among all the official entrants from each of the four weekends. Previous winners are eligible.
