We’re very excited to kick off the first of 10 straight weeks of Kindle Fire Give-away sweepstakes here at Kindle Nation (details below), and we’re doing so with the generous help of author Karen Cantwell, who is allowing us to shine a spotlight on her hilarious Barbara Marr Murder Mystery Take the Monkeys and Run:
Now, about that KINDLE FIRE Sweepstakes!
- First, it allows us to make use of a very professional but affordable third-party service that administers our Sweepstakes according to best practices and maintains full confidentiality for all information provided by participants; and
- Second, it helps us to build our connection with you, our readers, through Facebook, which is the quickest, least expensive, and least intrusive way for us to let you know about Kindle-related news and bargains.
