Self-Published? Could Win!

Are you a self-published author? If so, this might interest you :
Writer's Digest is searching for the best self-published books of the past few years. Whether you're a professional writer, part-time freelancer, or a self-starting student, here's your chance to enter the only competition exclusively for self-published books.
Details here. And yes, this competition is open to Malaysians, but the language of publication must be English.

Whoops.. see the truth got censored, did it not? is this not a profit-making scheme?

And what do you call this :

"7. Judges reserve the right to withhold prizes in any category."

What recourse do I have if they decide to withhold my prize even though I paid about Rm360 (!) just to enter? they've not said anything about how they will refund the prize money at all.

And what happens if they just disappear off the Internet?

Well I like to be prepared. Also I like to read about people who do things I can't do. Anyone worth a damn can organize a contest like that. If he's offering a million and entry is free, then maybe.

If I can do it, it's not really worth reading about, is it?

If people want to pay to have their books judged by people they don't even know, they might as well pay me. At least the courier cost would be cheaper :P
