Free Kindle E-book Competition Giveaway

Want something for nothing?

Today I'm giving away 25 free copies of my new e-book ALIBI JONES AND THE SUNRISE OF HUR. The rules are simple. All you have to do is tweet the following phrase, or post it as your Facebook status:

I want a #free #kindle copy of ALIBI JONES AND THE SUNRISE OF HUR by Mike Luoma – Love Science Fiction!

Easy, isn’t it?

You must include the link to the Amazon page for your entry to count (try and include the hashtags if on Twitter).

Once you're done, come back here to the blog and show me proof, a screenshot or whatever. You can put it up on Photobucket or somewhere and put a link below. Or you can get creative.
In fact, you can both tweet it and post it as your Facebook status, and that counts as two entries. If you come up with another creative or amusing way to spread this message, that will count as another entry too.

If you don’t want to post your proof below, you can email it to glowinthedarkradio at gmail dot com and that will also count.
Finally, if you retweet news of this competition, blog about it, put a link to this post up on Facebook, or promote it in some other way, and come back here and show me (or email me), that will count as another entry in the draw.

This isn’t just open to Kindle owners, or those with the free Kindle program installed on their computer or phone that allows them to read Kindle e-books. If you have a Nook or another e-reader, I can provide you with the correct format instead.

There will be spot prizes for particularly amusing, creative or effective entries given at the whim of our esteemed panel of judges, i.e. me. I'm thinking comics, other books...
The competition runs from now until Wednesday night at midnight PDT time (that’s 3 a.m. on the East Coast of the US or 8 a.m. in London).
Winners will be announced tomorrow.
Sound like fun?
Please note that if you are a new commenter on my blog, I have to manually approve your comments. Don’t worry if your comment doesn’t appear – I still got it, and your entry counts!
