The Textnovel Contest (the "Contest") is offered by Textnovel, LLC ("Textnovel") and open only to residents of the United States, Canada and those countries where the Contest is allowed by law. By entering the Contest, you accept sole responsibility for determining whether your participation is legal in any jurisdiction that applies to you. You must be at least 13 years old (and if you are not of the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence, you must have the consent of a parent) and have an active e-mail account and Internet access at the time of entry. By entering, you agree to these "Contest Rules" and that the decisions of Textnovel are final and binding in all respects. Textnovel reserves the right to disallow participation by the residents of any specific country in its sole discretion, either now or upon completion of the Contest, if Textnovel determines in its sole discretion that tax, jurisdictional and other issues make it infeasible or overly difficult to award the prize, calculate witholding taxes, or obtain publication rights from residents of that specific country.
