20 Free Kindles!!! (eighteen exclamation points)

The Red Church at Amazon for 99 cents now ranked at #228 at 11 a.m. EST! Stoker Award finalist and Mystery Guild selection.  Buy it and put it in the Top 100 so I can give you folks an extra Kindle 3!

Can't afford it? Don't have a Kindle? Just go there and tag it--that helps more people see the book around the Amazon universe. Popular tags are: paranormal, mystery, horror, suspense, ghosts, thrillers, bestsellers, kindle, kindle books,  Christian fiction (yes, it has spiritual themes though it's not your typical category "Christian" novel), fantasy, dark fantasy

As of today, Oct. 4, I have sixteen ebooks live for the Kindle on Amazon.

As previously announced, I am giving away (via Amazon) a Kindle DX through my 90-day blog tour and a Kindle 3 to a randomly selected newsletter subscriber, as well as the Pandora's Box of 100+ free ebooks to a Twitter follower.

And I was going to throw in a bonus Kindle if any book cracked the Top 100 on Amazon. Now I am upping the stakes: I will give away one free Kindle 3 for EACH of my books that cracks the Top 100 during the tour, in either the US or UK Kindle stores.

If one book does it, I will throw in one. If five books crack it, I will throw in five. For a total of up to 18 Kindles (well, actually 20, because I am releasing two more books during the tour--CURSED with J.R. Rain and my thriller DISINTEGRATION).

Sure, it's hard to hit the Top 100. Yet 100 books are always doing it at any given time, so it's not impossible. I'm not going to pester anyone any more than I normally do, and I am too lazy to track who does what. The tour is totally voluntary and winners are randomly selected by the local library staff.

If you want to increase your odds of winning a Kindle, you spread the word about the tour and my books. If you just want to show up at the blogs (in the sidebar to the right) and enter for free, then that's cool, too.

The idea is simple. You spread the word, I sell more books. You buy my books, I give stuff back to you. And we all sleep at night, hopefully with a Kindle under the pillow. Thanks for playing!

Danny said...

You are incredible!!!You are crazy! I cross my fingers your books will hit the Top 100! You deserve nothing less!

Well Danny, it's hard to make the Top 100 but if 20 books did, I think I could afford the $3,000!


Dale said...

Scott that would be an awesome give away.

Selena Kitt said...

Have you hit the top 100 with any of them yet? Which one is closest? :)

author Scott Nicholson said...

I've gotten into the #300s before, Selena. Red Church is under 1,000 and I have several books in the 1-3k range (the cheap ones...)
