Win a SIGNED 1st Edition of How to Win Lotteries, Sweepstakes & Contests!

Signature by Steve LedouxHow To Win Lotteries. Sweepstakes, and Contests.It wouldn’t be the holiday season without me hosting a few giveaways! My second prize is a signed 1st edition of How to Win Lotteries, Sweepstakes, and Contests by Steve Ledoux.

This wasn’t the first sweepstaking book I read, but the one I most related to as Steve Ledoux is known as the Sweepstakes King.

His book focuses on lotteries, mail-in sweepstakes and recipe contests. It perfectly dovetails with mine as I focus on online entries, social media giveaways and cover other aspects of the hobby such as taxes, online safety and attracting luck.

Then, after 12 years I finally got to met Steve in person and it was magical. (I admit I was fangirl-ing the whole time.)

    I’ve enjoyed this hobby for close to 25 years now. The one thing I’ve learned if you want to continue to win is you have to be willing to adapt to change. Sweeps have evolved over the years and continue to do so. I’m always searching for tips on current sweeps/contest and future trends. I’m sure this book would provide new information help me add to my win total.

    I’ve been sweeping for 38 years now. I’ve done quite well, but there’s always room for improvement. There are more and more ways to enter. I understand some of it well, but some of it, well, I do not understand. And of course, even what I do understand, a “refresher course” never hurts!

    I just started out entering giveaways after seeing one of your YouTube videos. Your energy was powerful! What really appealed to me was using my own positive energy to bring good things-unexpected things into my own life. It was just over a month ago now that I won a fun prize. It”s not a milion dollars but it felt huge to me. The reason I want this book is so I can learn how to be more productive at sweeps & contests. I need some serious guidance so I am not just spinning in circles.
