I'm giving away a brand new Kindle


As far as I can tell, promoting a book is a bit like telling a long story.  After a while, you have to inject something new and interesting into the mix or people get bored, which is why I've decided to give away a brand new Kindle.

Whether I give away the $139 Kindle or the one with 3G will be down to the winner.

I'd love to go into precise details about how to enter etc, but unfortunately, I've spent a good chunk of the weekend removing viruses from my daughters' laptops, which has put me a long way behind.

I'll post the specifics tomorrow**.  In the meantime, here's a picture (and a built-in link to Amazon's Kindle info page) to be going on with:



 

   Will you win the Kindle?

**ETA:  It's now tomorrow, but I'm afraid I'm probably not going to manage to post the details until today's tomorrow ie:Tuesday.  My apologies.

Clearly you are mad. The total sales from my first book in its first quarter would have paid for a Kindle, but not with much left over. Small press, true, but so are you, not so?

Much as I would love to win a Kindle, I think this might be... precipitous? Not that i wouldn't enter, I'm just not sure you can afford to be so generous.

I've been toying with this idea for a few while now. Last week's announcement from Amazon helped me make up my mind :)

Ugh. I hate computer cleaning duty.

I hope you explained to them that going to lyrics sites is not a good idea.

Oooo, shiny!

Sorry to hear about your daughters' laptops. Nothing sucks more than trying to deal with viruses.

BTW - I'm really enjoying Fur Face!

I'm glad you're liking it (so far) :)
