Given that I’m flush with eggnog (if you can call tequila eggnog, which I do around the holidays, but never mind – don’t be a hater, just go with me on this), I have decided to try something new. No, not round the world with a 300 pound Samoan cook on a tramp steamer bound for Jakarta (although I am not judging). I’m actually talking about a new marketing ploy – a special-priced giveaway contest, where lucky winners can get their grubby mitts on a free Kindle Fire, or gift cards.


NEWS: The Epic Kindle Giveaway promotion was just featured on Ereader News Today!


I’ve never participated in one of these types of promotions before, not because I felt they were beneath me or cheapened my important work, but mainly out of laziness – it always seemed like too much trouble. Fortunately, I was contacted by some of my favorite authors and asked to participate in one, where all I would have to do is show up. That was just my speed.

And so it is that I’m participating in this three day event, from December 27-29, where among other masterpieces, my groundbreaking new thriller JET is only .99, and if you get it, you stand a chance of walking away with all kinds of swag. Since I’ve never been given anything for Xmas besides a jab in the eye with a sharp stick and an order to move along, I’m naturally going to enroll in it and see if I can win everything, perhaps ruining the experience for others, but in the end, not caring, as it’s all about me, and perhaps this is my time in the sun. Probably not, based on experience, but one never knows.

Here’s a list of the books in the promotion. There are some great ones in there, so don’t be a tightwad.

Go load up your kindle with .99 deals, and perhaps win something cool. Not a bad deal. Hope it works. Hard to pay for the bar tab with warm sentiments and reviews…

The URL for the contest can be FOUND HERE. Like Florida and Chicago elections, enter early and often! Everyone’s a winner on this one!

    To increase the odds for you to win the whole thing, I’m not going to enter the contest. Because I’m cool like that. It has nothing to do with the fact that you can’t pay me enough to sign back up on facebook and I’d rather promise my first child, if I had one, to satan than sign up.

      Satan is apparently being more selective now that his success with the bankers has gone to his head. Doesn’t offer nearly as much for the first children anymore. And apparently I got a screaming deal when I did the paperwork on my soul compared to the going rate these days. Go figure.

        I don’t mind giving him the first born or second or seventh for a nice pair of shoes since I don’t plan to have any for the good of the mankind. My parents wished me to have a kids who are just like me too many times. I shudder at the thought of it…
