Re-commencify the Kindelosity! (Now with Fire)

11 May 2012

Big day today.

First, the site has been redesigned. It’s a skeleton of what I’m eventually planning for it, but at least it’s not so green anymore. Check it out, won’t you?

Second — and probably more interesting — it’s time to give away some stuff and things! As you know, the sequel to 47 Echo, Supercritical, is going to be released in a month. And as you know, I gave away a couple of Kindles last time. Carina Press, my awesome publisher, is digital-first, which means the initial release will be an ebook you can get on your Kindle, Nook, Kobo (anyone still have one of these?), Reader, iPad, or what have you.

But wait! you say. I don’t have a Kindle, Nook, Kobo, Reader, iPad, or what have you! What kind of monster are you, sir?! (To which I might suggest you look into decaf.)

But worry no longer about your ereader-less-ness — I’m here with a pair of contests that’ll (possibly) fix that right up for you:

The Facebook Contest

Simple, this one. All you have to do is “Like” the 47 Echo Facebook Page. The catch is a magic number: 1000. Once the page reaches 1000 total people who Like it, I’ll run the ol’ random number generator, and that person wins. (Of course, it goes without saying that you can’t win if you’re related to me.)

How do we accomplish 1000 likes? Well, if you already like the page, share it. Suggest it to friends. Electro-pimp away!

The Twitter Contest

This one’s easy, too. Follow @Tweet_Book on Twitter, and retweet the daily message it asks you to retweet. The first 100 unique retweets of the day are entered to win — on June 25 (two weeks after release day), ol’ Randomy The Number Generator gets kicked again and picks a winner. Simpler even than the Facebook one — but the odds aren’t as good, as @Tweet_Book already has about 3,100 followers. (You can’t be related to me for this one, either. Sorry.)

Fine, Fine. What Do I Win?

Each winner will receive, from me, a shiny, brand-spankin’ new Kindle Fire. More than just an ereader, the Kindle fire is a functioning tablet — I watch a lot of Netflix and Amazon Prime video on mine (as well as, you know, reading books). I’ll also include an Amazon gift card for the purchase of Supercritical and 47 Echo (and a couple of other books, too).

So there you have it, folks. Enter now — Twitter, Facebook, or both — and get stuff from me!

Oh, and question for the gallery, just to keep the theme going — what’s the best sci-fi book you’ve read this year?

    Well, we’re not related, and I’ve already liked the 47 Echo Facebook page, but if for some 1 in 1637 chance (hey, I’m hoping you’ll get more than 1000 likes) I end up picked to win, randomize again ’cause I already have one of those snazzy Kindle Fires. And, like you, I dig it and use it to watch Amazon Prime things at night in bed. I’ve even been using it to edit my documents, lately, using the highlighting and notes feature Kindles have.

    Glad you got the redesign up, too!

    The last sci-fi(esque) book I read was 47 Echo, so my answer to your question would be biased.
