Win a Free Kindle

Win a Kindle
Several of the MG/YA authors over at, myself included, have gotten together to giveaway a Kindle and tons of ebooks. It’s free to enter, just sign up at the Kindle 'Indie'pendence website. Winners will be chosen on (or around) July 4th (thus the contest name).
You can get extra entries for things like tweeting the contest, linking to it on Facebook, etc.
The most extra entries are given for reviewing one of the organizing author’s books. You get 20 free points for posting a review on a retailer site (Amazon, B&N, SmashWords, Apple Store) and an extra 5 for each site you cross-post it to. So, if you post a review on Amazon, B&N, and SmashWords, then you’ll get 30 entries.

Now, if you are like me, you’ve probably already spent your monthly budget on ebooks, even the 99¢ ones. I know money is tight for practically everyone, so I’m giving free copies of my short story collection: Monster Mashup. At 20,000 works, it’s a quick read and there’s no requirement that you leave a review. But if you do, you can rack up 30 or more entries.
I’ll give away up to10 copies to the first 10 people who post a comment in this post. Either, post your e-mail in the comments, or if you don’t want to do that, then post a comment and e-mail me at:
Be sure to let me know what format you’d like it in: PDF, ePub or Mobi (for the Kindle). If I get more than 10 requests, it will be the first 10 to post comments. So, post a comment, even if you plan on e-mailing me.

If you aren’t into MG shorts, check out the contest, with 16 authors, you're bound to find another great book! Just remember you have to sign-up to win and you have to send a message to:  kindleindiependence at hotmail .com to get your extra entries (for posting reviews, links on your blog, etc).

Update: We're doing it again this year, but giving out TWO kindles! Enter here (ends 7/7/21).
