Feeling Lucky?

Did you win a Kindle Fire tablet this week?

If you are Billye Thomas of Fort Smith, AR, you did. Billye won hers on Monday in last week’s Kindle Nation Daily KINDLE FIRE Giveaway Sweepstakes, and when it arrives at her home tomorrow, she will become the 21st citizen of Kindle Nation to win a Kindle Fire from us in the past few months.

But we’d like for you to be one of about 50 people who will win one of these Kindle Fire tablets from us in 2012, and all you have to do is follow the extremely easy steps at the end of this post to have a great chance to win.

But first, a word from … Today’s Sponsor

Eileen Cruz Coleman, this week's sponsor and author of SWEETWATER AMERICAN

Like each one of our weekly sweepstakes, this week’s giveaway is sponsored by a talented author who has proven to be a favorite with our readers. Sweetwater American author, Eileen Cruz Coleman is springing for the Kindle Fire that could very well end up with your name on it, so it only makes sense to pay it forward and stimulate both your karma and your imagination at the same time by chancing $2.99 (and currently FREE for Amazon Prime Members via Kindle Lending Library) to grace your Kindle with a novel that has 11 out of 13 rave reviews from discriminating readers like us.


Here’s The Scoop on Sweetwater America :

Sweetwater American

by Eileen Cruz Coleman

4.2 stars – 13 Reviews

Kindle Price: $2.99

Text-to-Speech and Lending: Enabled

Here’s the set-up:

Special Notice: Sweetwater American includes Eileen Cruz Coleman’s Young Adult debut, Taker of Light, a post-apocalyptic speculative fiction story.

Set in Washington, D.C. and El Salvador, SWEETWATER AMERICAN is the story of an orphan and would-be filmmaker who is sent to live in a cursed town in El Salvador with her godmother, a woman whom she has never met and who may hold the secret to breaking the town’s curse.

Through Sandy Rodriguez and Elena Martinez, the two main characters, we are led into a different, haunting and magical world, where people test their faith every day and hold true to what they believe: that hardship and darkness can be overcome if one finds a reason to live.

While living in El Salvador, after a film crew comes to her town to film a movie, Sandy realizes she wants to be a documentary filmmaker. When she returns to the States, she attends George Washington University where she meets Elena, a sixty-something-year-old woman who serves peas and mashed potatoes in one of the school’s cafeterias.

Sandy, intrigued by Elena, decides to ask her if she would be willing to share her life story with her. Elena, whose past still haunts her, agrees to tell Sandy her story.

During the interview, Sandy is forced to come to terms with her own past and she begins to understand what the term, Sweetwater American, really means.

    I bought a regular Kindle 6 days before the Fire was announced! I’d love to have the Kindle Fire – it looks like a tablet to me.

      For anyone who doesn’t have a USB conoectnr for a Kindle Fire or Nook: Download Dropbox on your computer and Kindle Fire. Download Dropbox on your Nook/Kindle Fire and on your computer. Then create a dropbox account and sync the two dropboxes. You now have a virtual folder between your computer and your tablet. I use it all the time.
