This isn’t one of the infamous rambling blog posts, but more of a quick note reminding you of a few things you may (or may not) be aware of…if you would like to write to me, my email address is michael at fkbt dot com: I type it out that way in a small effort to try and thwart the professional spammers!
Kindle Paperwhite Giveaway
The blog’s latest giveaway for one of the new Kindle Paperwhites ends today: have you entered? It’s free to enter, and I will tell you I really like mine: I think it is the best value for your money Kindle reader out there, and I am now using it 100% to read my list of books. You can enter if you click here or type in http://smarturl.it/72015 into your web browser – but don’t be late as the giveaway will end tonight!
Here’s one note about the signup page – if you’re using one of the older Kindle Fires or an older phone to browse to the website you may have difficulty signing up due to outdated software. If that is the case for you and you want a chance to enter, I hate to say this but please try to find a computer to type in the http://smarturl.it/72015 link on your computer!
While you’re thinking about it, please pass on the Paperwhite giveaway’s information to your family, friends, coworkers – even your enemies – as I am 100% certain they would like an opportunity to win, also.
Talk about a media blitz – if you haven’t been watching TV, listening to the radio or stopping by the Amazon website lately you may not know but in honor of Amazon’s 20th anniversary today is Amazon Prime Day. Amazon has promised today will be filled with more deals and savings than any previous Black Friday sale they have offered and it is only available to members of Amazon’s Prime program.
Not a member of Amazon’s Prime program? That’s okay, as you can sign up for a free 30 day trial –if you like it you can keep it but if you don’t just cancel it on Day 29 and you won’t be charged a thing. You can sign up for the free trial if you click here or type in http://smarturl.it/prime into your web browser. You can also click one of those links to check out the today-only deals.

Many of you have emailed me to say you are enjoying the author interviews I’ve been posting over the last couple of weeks. I did this a few years ago, and if you would like to see all of them you can click here to check out all of the interviews on the blog’s website. Take a moment if you can and read a few (or all) of them – I think it’s interesting to hear about how these independent authors were able to quit their day jobs and write full time, what motivates them, and how they came up with some of the bestselling novels they have written. Who knows, you may find a new favorite author!
That’s all I had for this quick post – don’t forget to enter the Kindle Paperwhite giveaway!
