I’ve had a few questions about the Soul Screamers Reading Challenge so I thought I’d create an FAQ page to help answer some of the questions. If you have any other questions, leave them in the comments, below.
Do I have to read and review each book in the series during the month scheduled?
NO. You can read any book in the series at any time during the challenge – from January 15 through June 14. You will get an EXTRA ENTRY into the pre-order giveaway at the end of the challenge if you read them in the month scheduled, but you can read the books whenever you want during the months of the challenge.
Do I have to read ALL the books in the series?
NO. If you’ve already read one – or more – of the books in the series and aren’t ready for a re-read, you can start with ANY book in the series. You can start the challenge in January along with everyone else or you can wait until the month the book is scheduled for.
BUT, you are only eligible for the monthly giveaways if you post your review during the month of those giveaways.
AND, if you post your review for a book that is not scheduled for that month, you won’t get the EXTRA ENTRY into the pre-order giveaway at the end of the challenge.
What if I only read one book in the series?
Then you will get one entry into the pre-order giveaway as long as you post a review during the challenge and leave the link in one of the month’s linky’s. AND during the month that you do link your review, you will have an entry into that month’s giveaway.
What if I don’t have a blog?
You can post your review on Facebook, on Goodreads on Tumblr OR you if your review is positive, I will post it on my blog, Soul Screamers Reading Challenge for you as a GUEST POST.
How else can I get extra entries into the Before I Wake pre-order giveaway?
If you create a participation post on your blog, you’ll get an extra entry.
If you read any of the “extra credit” novella reads and post a review at any time during the challenge, you will get an extra entry.
You can post your reviews for each book in the corresponding month of the challenge.
Why do I need to sign up?
Signing up will give you one entry into the Before I Wake giveaway at the end of the challenge, but ONLY if you also post at least one review during the rest of the challenge. So that will mean two entries.
You will only be eligible for the monthly giveaways during the challenge if you are already signed up AND you post one review.
When should I sign up?
You can sign up AT ANY TIME during the challenge.
Will the extra credit reads give me an entry into the monthly giveaway if I haven’t read one of the full-length books?
YES. As long as a review (or discussion post) is posted (and linked) during that month, an extra credit read will give you eligibility into that month’s giveaway.
SO, if there is a specific book you want to try to have an extra chance to win, hold off on posting your review for the extra credit read until the month for that particular book’s giveaway.
Can I start reading the books before the event?
Ideally NO. You’ll start reading with everyone else. BUT, no one is policing you.
HOWEVER, if you post your review prior to the link post on January 15th, that read and review will NOT count.
If you have any other questions, ask them in the comments on this page and I will either answer them in the comments or add them to the FAQ’s.
