Win a FREE Kindle Fire!

I read today that Amazon expects to ship six million Kindle Fire tablets this quarter alone. Most of the people receiving one will pay two hundred bucks, as it seems Amazon has no intention of discounting their brand-new product so soon after its release.

But you can get one absolutely free! I will be giving away one Kindle Fire to one lucky winner, and you only need to follow three easy steps to qualify:

1 - Follow me on Twitter, @AllanLeverone.
This is how I will be notifying the winner at the end of the contest, so you've gotta follow me. Plus, every once in a while I actually say something interesting. You wouldn't want to miss that.

2-Purchase and download a digital copy of my thriller, The Lonely Mile.
It's priced at just 99 cents through the end of the contest. This is the book New York Times bestselling author Debbi Mack calls "suspenseful and well written," and bestselling author Scott Nicholson calls "a taut crime drama full of twists and conspiracy." And it's less than a buck. What the hell's wrong with me?

3 - Post an honest review of The Lonely Mile at Amazon.
Posting a review is easy and painless, and it doesn't have to be long and in-depth. It doesn't even have to be positive, just keep it honest and constructive.

And that's it! Follow those three steps and you will be entered - thanks for your interest in my work and good luck!

Legal stuff:
One Kindle Fire tablet will be given away. The contest runs six weeks, from November 28, 2011 until 9:00 am ET on January 9, 2012.

One winner will be randomly selected and notified through Twitter message on January 9. That winner will have 48 hours from the time of the first Twitter message to provide me with their name and shipping information, either through Twitter or email.

If, after 48 hours, the winner has not gotten in touch with me, that person will forfeit the Kindle Fire and a new winner will be randomly selected. The new winner will then have 48 hours after notification to provide me with his or her shipping information.

The review of The Lonely Mile must be honest and constructive. It does not have to be positive and it does not have to be lengthy for you to qualify to win. Whether you loved the book or hated the book, all I ask is that you keep the review constructive. The review must show "Amazon verified purchase" under your name. This is the only way I have of knowing you actually purchased the book.

All decisions regarding all aspects of this contest - and any questions which may arise - will be made by me and will be final.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me - thanks again and good luck!

Hi Allan..great giveaway!! I already have a copy of Lonely Mile and have reviewed your book and it is on Amazon, does that count to be entered??

Hi Kathleen, thanks very much! My goal is to spur sales and reviews, and the only way I could think of to ensure entrants actually read the book before posting a review was to have the review show "Amazon verified purchase."

Since THE LONELY MILE was a review copy for CelticLady Reviews, it doesn't say that...I'm really sorry...

So I FINALLY finished Final Vector. Will post a review soon. I don't do twitter, and I bought my copy of The Lonely Mile at Barnes and Noble, so I can't enter, but I will try to get some other folks to do it!

I'm not entering, but love your work. Will download while it's 99cents but have 20+ ahead to read. I pray you get 400 entrants at a minimum. Will tweet your contest, should they land here?
