Sweetheart Smackdown Day 8: Elite 8- Layla vs. Abby

Welcome to the first ever Sweetheart Smackdown, hosted by us, For the Love of Books!  We are very excited to be coordinating this competition for all of our favorite leading ladies.  This competition is for fun and is a wonderful way to promote some awesome characters and authors, so please, let’s keep it fun and clean J Also, once you’ve voted for your favorite lady, make sure to enter the Sweetheart Smackdown Mega Giveaway at the bottom, it will be open throughout the entire competition.


Instructions for voting:

       We decided to try a little something different than the norm for voting.  You will be voting through rafflecopters.  Each contestant will have their own rafflecopter.  You must be signed in through Facebook to enter.  This way it hopefully cuts down on the ability of a person to vote more than once and keeps the competition as fair as possible.  You can gain 2 entries/votes by doing 2 things- Liking our Facebook page (For the Love of Books) and also liking the Author’s Facebook page.  At the end of that round, the contestant with the most votes/entries wins J Easy peasy.... hopefully!

Rules of the Competition:
1. NO cheating on the voting! We know you are excited and really want your leading lady to win, but please do not resort to cheating to accomplish a win. We are using Rafflecopter as a way to vote, so please sign in through Facebook before voting. Rafflecopter also allows us to track IP addresses. Multiple entries from the same IP address will be deleted. The final tally shown on Rafflecopter will be subject to change after review of IP addresses, therefore we will make the final announcement of who is the winner.
2. NO bullying or negative comments will be tolerated! This competition is supposed to be all in good fun and is a way to bring awareness to some really wonderful authors and books. Please remember, what you say reflects back on your author/leading lady, so represent them well. Any negative comments posted will be removed immediately and result in that fan’s sweetheart being disqualified from the competition. Keep it classy ladies!
3. Respect each other! Please do not encourage fans to post on other authors’ pages unless you have contacted that author directly to get their permission. That page is that author’s personal page and their way of promoting THEIR books and work, if they do not wish to have others post on their page that is their decision. Please respect it

Contest is Open from 12:01 am EST- 10:00 pm EST February 18th
