@Joseph Keeler I read through the rules of the contest, I didn’t see anything that says you can’t reach out to outside sources. But I did notice that the terms say that books with two authors aren’t allowed, the book in first place has two authors and that is something that should be looked into. The only thing the terms seemed to outright ban when it comes to bringing buyers to a book was creating multiple accounts or asking others to create multiple accounts to purchase your book. They want people who are genuinely interested in your book to purchase preorders, so be sure any marketing you do includes some short information about your book.
