Win a Kindle in the Fur-Face Prize draw.

How does it work?

Simply put, if you buy this:

You get a chance to win this one of these:



I've tried to anticipate all your questions, which I've answered below, but please see the official contest page for full details and instructions on how to enter.

Are you really giving away a brand new Kindle? 

Are you out of your mind?
I'm not crazy - my old gran had me tested.

Fair enough, so who can enter this prize draw?
Anyone who's bought* a copy of my debut novel Fur-Face (Echelon Press) available from Amazon.com, OmniLit.com (OmniLit also has the opening chapter online) or on a signed CD.

*If you won a copy in one of my other prize draws, you can also enter.

Is there a way I can increase my chances?
Yes. You can get extra entries into the draw by posting online reviews of Fur-Face and/or promoting this contest online (along with a link to the contest page on my website).

How many times can I enter?
There’s a maximum of five entries allowed per person.

Sounds good, but exactly which Kindle version will you give away?
If the winner lives in the USA and has the maximum five entries in the draw, he/she can choose between new $189 3G version advertised in the picture above OR the new $139 WiFi-only version and a $50 Amazon gift card.

If the winner has less than five entries in the draw, he/she wins the $139 version.

What if I don't live in the USA?
You can still enter, but if you win, you can either have the relevant US Kindle prize OR an Amazon gift voucher for the equivalent USD amount.

How long will this draw stay open?
Until I've received 250 e-receipts from people who bought Fur-Face online or on CD after August 1st 2010. When that happens, I'll announce the two week deadline so that folks have time to read the book and post reviews for extra entries.

What this CD thingy you mentioned?
I’m having CDs made with the Adobe PDF, HTML and ePub versions on them, so I can sell ‘signed copies’ of Fur-Face at events. There’ll also be some promotional blurb from some of my writer-friends on there (more about that on Wednesday).

When the draw closes, how will you select the winner?
By a cunning and foolproof method, which I explain in precise detail on the contest page.

Do entries for this prize draw still count for the ones in the current Fur-Face Summer Promotions?
Yes they do, but only until those close (on August 31st).

There you have it. If you have any other questions, please let me know.

Best of luck to all who enter.

Somebody's going to win a Kindle, will it be you?

Yeah, but what does Senior Management think?

She's fine with it :)

I wanna see these test results, I think you're crazy. :-)

Thanks for buying Fur-Face, Dylan. Don't forget to enter the contest.

Also, thanks for explaining the FBReader thing :)

Can I hire you to be my publicist? ;)
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:32 pm (UTC)
Lol, then they'll be saying your crazy too ;)
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:35 pm (UTC)
They already do, so...

Thanks, Joan. I got your email, by the way, I'll get back to you soon.
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:25 pm (UTC)
Okay, how do I generate an e-receipt?
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:45 pm (UTC)
OmniLit or Amazon send it when you buy online, just forward that to kindlecontest@acatofninetales.com

Hope that helps, Amanda :)

Well, that's what I figured, but I didn't find it in my email. Maybe the OmniLit webpage has a copy. I'll look some more.
Aug. 4th, 2010 01:54 am (UTC)
Don't worry, Amanda. I've already got you down as buying it back in June. Just send a quick email to kindlecontest@acatofninetales.com reminding me, and I'll take that as your first entry into the contest :)
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:44 pm (UTC)
I've entered! I soo want to win this!! If I do I can't decide if I will give it to my daughter, who really needs one, or my mom, who I know would really love one if she had the chance to try it out.
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:46 pm (UTC)
Lol, probably better to keep it for yourself, then. That way you won't upset either of them :)
Aug. 3rd, 2010 09:54 pm (UTC)
LOL! I probably should. This is a great promotional idea. I might steal it from you when Panthan's Abyss comes out. Hmm... I might need to actually finish the book though. ;-)

You know those tests are only considered valid for two years, right? I think if your old gran knew about the Kindle, she'd be after seeking a second opinion....
Aug. 3rd, 2010 10:38 pm (UTC)
Hehehe, I don't think my old gran ever asked anyone for a first opinion, much less a second :)
Aug. 4th, 2010 12:18 am (UTC)
Are you sure we aren't related?
Aug. 4th, 2010 09:29 am (UTC)
Might be, might be. My old gran is from the Sackville-Borge-Khan branch of the family tree :)
Aug. 4th, 2010 12:50 am (UTC)
I'm amazed at your promotional skills. This is a great contest.
Aug. 4th, 2010 09:31 am (UTC)
Thanks, Beth though I can't take all the credit. Karen Syed at Echelon Press gave me some great feedback which helped me shape the contest better :)
