THE SEA KING Release Countdown T -16 Days


Only 16 more days until SEA KING!!

To celebrate the release, we’re counting down the days with fun and prizes.  Each day, from now until November 1st, drop by to join the celebration and answer the Question of the Day in this blog’s comment section to be entered to win.  (For sweepstakes rules and eligibility, click here.)

This Week’s Drawing

From now until 10am, Tuesday, October 17th, stop by the C.L. Wilson blog to answer the Question of the Day (QoD) to be entered to win one of this week’s fabulous prizes and receive a ticket in the Grand Prize drawing.  Each individual QoD you answer gets you another ticket in both the weekly and the Grand Prize prize drawings, so don’t be shy.

You can also comment multiple times a day, just to have fun and be involved, but each participant receives only one ticket in the drawing for each day’s blog post you comment on.  All responses will be tallied after comments close for the final post. The winners will be selected at random from all entries, with all winners of this week’s drawing posted on Tuesday, October 17th.
