‘Tis the Season: Contests, Contests, Contests!

At Havok, we love, love, love contests! Whether you’re a reader or a writer, we have ways you can win prizes doing the things you love!

Holiday Gathering Challenge: The author with the biggest reader gathering on a single Havok story between November 22 and January 6 (as indicated by unique readers commenting on one post) will win a $25 Amazon gift card! It can be any story from any season!

Stocking Stuffer Reader Challenge: Stuff an author’s stocking by leaving a comment on their story! Our special holiday season reader contest will be awarded to the member who comments on the MOST STORIES between Nov 22 – Jan 6.

Season Four Super Reader Award: We’re awarding a $50 Amazon gift card to the Reader who makes the most comments on our Sensational stories. Why? Because authors love to hear what you think about their stories, and we love our authors. What better way to support them than by leaving a comment?

Finally, authors, don’t miss our new contest for Season Five: Prismatic – Best Story Title! Give your story a great first impression by creating an intriguing title. Our crack submissions team is choosing the Best Title based on title alone!  The story doesn’t even need to be accepted for publication to win!

And, of course, the contests above are in addition to our Regular Season Contests such as our Editors’ and Readers’ Choice awards, and our new, annual Most Prolific Author Award!

Help fund author payments for our next anthology!
