Sweepstakers gather tips and tricks from many corners—online, friends and books. Penelope Silvers, author of You are a Winner! Easy 1,2,3 Sweepstakes and Contests "True Confessions and Inside Secrets of an Admitted Sweep-a-holic" is one of these sources that may help increase your chances of winning.
This book is an introduction to online sweepstakes. The author shares her personal techniques and few of her insider tips on how to make the most of your time. She gives you some great tips on instant win contests.
She has some impressive wins under her belt and shares stories of some of them including being the grand prize winner of the "2011 Cooking Light, Get Your Game On" Sweepstakes. She and 10 of her friends were treated to fabulous Super Bowl party hosted by Chef Billy Strynkowski. Her attitude is upbeat and the fun she has sweeping shines through her writing. But she also emphasizes the work it takes to persevere. You'll definitely be encouraged to take this hobby more seriously if you're on the fence about it at all.
One bit of advice she gives that some sweepstakers may disagree with is to not bother at all with mail-in sweeps. Then again, others may view mail-in sweepstakes as a dying breed. However, she also gives great advice on how to avoid becoming obsessive about sweepstaking to the point where it takes over your life. She slipped into this for a time when her family was going through a rough patch financially. She brought herself out of it and organized her sweepstaking time much more reasonably.
At this time, the book is available digitally. It's short at only 35 pages but it's also priced to sell at under $2 as of this writing. I think this is a good albeit short intro to the subject and readers may pick up some tips they hadn't thought of before, especially those who are completely new to sweepstaking. I purchased this book with my own funds and have not been compensated by the author or publisher for this review.
