It’s a slow day today, so I thought it was time for another giveaway – this time it’s for one new Kindle Fire!

Here are the rules for this giveaway:

  • The time period is between now and 11:59 p.m. EST August 3rd.
  • You can enter once – and only once.
  • I’m doing this giveaway in an attempt to increase the blog’s email subscription option (no, you don’t have to do anything with Facebook or Twitter with this one to enter); if you do sign up for the email delivery option you can always unsubscribe at any time. You can also have more chances to win if you refer a friend (see the options below).
  • You don’t have to be a resident of the USA to enter – in other words, you can live anywhere in the world Amazon delivers merchandise. However, if Amazon does not ship Kindle Fires to your country, I will replace the new Kindle Fire with the same value in an Amazon gift card to do with as you please.

To enter:

  • Just click on the Enter to Win section of the box a little further down on this page: click on the “Join” line-item underneath the “Enter to Win” header.
  • For an additional 10 chances to enter, you can refer the giveaway (and the blog) to a friend. After you have entered via the method above, a box will appear that will give each entrant a unique URL you can share with your friends. For each friend that enters the giveaway, you will receive +1 entry into the giveaway: each entrant can refer up to 10 people.

In return, here is what I will do:

  • Randomly draw one winner from all of the entries for the Kindle Fire.
  • Have Amazon ship out a brand new (i.e., not a refurbished) Kindle Fire to the winner.

The last giveaways have been fun, and generated a lot of excitement. Seeing as how there is an easy non-Facebook/Twitter option to enter, I’m hoping the number of entries will be a lot more than last time.

If you’re reading this on your Kindle and not the actual blog page, you can go to your computer’s web browser and type in and enter away!

Website Owners / Authors

Several people have asked me on previous giveaways how they can have their web visitors, blog readers, and friends join in on future giveaways: the more the merrier! There are two ways:

  • Just link them to the giveaway page on the blog – just tell them to go to on their web browser.
  • You can embed a widget just like the one I have on this page to your website or blog page. Just click here and follow the easy instructions (if I can figure it out as an accountant, it has to be easy). All entries will go into the same hat!


That should do it – and good luck to everyone!

  85. Kay Holm  Says:

    Michael, I love the lists you send. I really loved when you tried to make the one author #1 on Amazon that week. More of that kind of thing, particularly for authors you think are really good. I think you should have less free books and more 99 cent ones, I think most people can afford a buck for a good book. And by that, I mean really choose the authors and make sure the books are good…that supports you and the author. My daughter is hooked in with Indie blogs and promotes the authors she likes just for fun (she has not written any books). I know there are a gazillion of these kind of things going on, but it is really good. Maybe look at that in terms of getting your favorite or customer favorite authors, emailing them and asking if they want to put together a blog hop or something and you will send it out. Prereq is that the authors are ones you have read and recommend so people who know you on this blog have confidence in the choices that they aren't a waste of time. Have them run a special on one of their books for 99 cents to hook back to you. Have them do the hop and all the work and you just promote it. Sounds like a win for everyone. Just a thought. Well, that is all I know for now…

  86. Andrea Larson  Says:

    I totally agree!

  103. Ann Gramling  Says:

    I'm really enjoying the "new" authors I have found as a result of Michael's efforts in behalf of limited income book readers. My local Leon Valley Library provides me with all those infamous writers, a few of which do great things with the millions they've made, but there is NO way I could buy a copy and be able to reread whenever I want. Now I have my forever copy of some fantastic writers and didn't pay much if anything for the stinkers that were easily discarded without regret. I currently read on my Note II; a Fire would be awesome!

  104. Katie Larink  Says:

    *crosses fingers* I've been stealing my sister's Kindle Fire too much lately. This would be a lovely solution. Love the selection of books you send out every day! I've gotten some great ones. :)
