Just 3 Days Left! It’s Time for You, Your Friends, and Your Family to Enter Our Week #8 Kindle Fire Giveaway Sweepstakes — Sponsored by Lords of Rainbow Author Vera Nazarian — And to Check Out a Book You Won’t be Able to Put Down!

Does this week's Kindle Fire giveaway have your name on it? If You Pick Up Lords of Rainbow You'll Be a Winner Either Way

By Steve Windwalker

Three score and seven days ago, or thereabouts, we here at Kindle Nation Daily had an idea. And if I say so myself, while a lot of our ideas here are reasonably good, this one was brilliant.

We had noticed that there was a great deal of enthusiasm building about the new Kindle Fire tablet among Kindle Nation Daily readers, and we decided that it would be a nice thing if we could start giving away one Kindle Fire each week here at Kindle Nation. The trick for us was to try to make it part of our single most important recurring theme here, which is to help to build connections between writers of distinction and our readers, who we believe have distinguished themselves month after month as the greatest readers in the world.

Great minds often think alike, and what we found was that some of the most distinguished writers that we work came forward quickly and offered to sponsor our weekly Kindle Fire giveaway sweepstakes. Within days we were able to get the party started, and so far we have given away 7 Kindle Fires in a recurring weekly event that makes Mondays the most fun day of my week — it’s almost like I get to play Santa Claus, and we’ve had so much participation by authors that we’re going to be able to continue giving away a new Kindle Fire every week well into 2012. Who knows, maybe we’ll continue forever!

This proposition called for us, of course, to challenge our readers to reciprocate in an entirely appropriate way.

No, we weren’t going to ask our readers to start buying Kindles for the sponsoring authors. But we were hopeful that enough of our readers would find books they wanted to read by these same authors, that over time the exposure would work for the authors as well, as a kind of voluntary business proposition.

What I’ve learned so far is that our readers continue to earn kudos as the greatest readers in the world, and in addition to the chance to win a Kindle Fire, they have had the pleasure of connecting with, buying, and reading some terrific books at great bargain prices.

This week should be no exception.

We’ve set new records for participation in every single week of the sweepstakes,and of course you can find the entry details at the end of this post. Meanwhile, I am very hopeful that all of our participating Kindle Nation Daily readers will want to check out Lords of Rainbow, a truly distinctive novel by this week’s sponsoring author, the very talented Vera Nazarian. I believe you’ll consider it $2.99 well spent, and when you help to propel Ms. Nazarian’s novel up the Kindle Store sales ranking ladder, there’s a very good chance that your momentum will help persuade other authors to participate as sponsors in 2012 or 2013 and, very possibly, provide a Kindle Fire which one of these weeks could have your name on it!

Here’s the set-up:

A unique fantasy world in which lost colors hold the key to salvation. . . . Fluid storytelling and vividly drawn characters. — Library Journal

Readers may find themselves heralding a new star of fantasy fiction. — Romantic Times Book Club

Imagine a world without color, illuminated by a gray sun …

An unrequited love…
War… mystery… exultation…

An epic fantasy of unspeakable wonder…

LORDS OF RAINBOW

Imagine a sudden brilliant flash — an artificial orb ignites, filled with peculiar impossible light…

The nature of this light bears no description. It lingers in dreams, inciting an unrequited love for a goddess.

A corrupt city is shaped like a perfect wheel, and is ruled by a sister and brother, Regent and Regentrix, by perverse desires, and by a secret…

A loyal warrior woman swears to serve a mysterious lord. At the same time, an epic invasion is precipitated by a being of utter darkness, who is the one absolute source of black in a monochrome silver world.

And amid all this, flickers an ancient memory of a phenomenon called Rainbow and of those who had once filled the world with an impossible thing called color…

Lords of Rainbow.

PRAISE FOR… LORDS OF RAINBOW

“In a world devoid of color, the woman warrior Ranhé swears herself to a mysterious nobleman traveling to the exotic city of Tronaelend-Lis, the City of Dreams, where a decadent brother and sister rule as co-regents in the absence of the land’s true ruler. When an evil being representing true Darkness threatens the safety of the colorless world, Ranhé is drawn into a spiritual journey in search of a legendary phenomenon known as Rainbow in an attempt to find a way to defeat the dark. The author of Dreams of the Compass Rose brings to life a unique fantasy world in which lost colors hold the key to salvation. Nazarian’s fluid storytelling and vividly drawn characters make this unusual fantasy a good choice for most libraries.”
— Library Journal

“Nazarian creates a unique civilization and populates it with heroic archetypes who stand on their own. Extravagant language reminiscent of Dunsany and even Tolkien adds to the legendary feel. . . . an innovative premise, consistent world-building, and appealing heroes mark this as the work of an emerging talent . . . readers may find themselves heralding a new star of fantasy fiction.”
— Romantic Times Book Club

“To read Vera Nazarian’s Lords of Rainbow is to be immersed in a dream, wandering through a wondrous, shifting landscape where the sun shines silver and the world is rendered in an infinite palette of subtle grays, filled with glimpses of sublime loveliness and glorious color.”
— Jacqueline Carey, author of KUSHIEL’S DART

“…like all of Vera’s stories—strange, poignant, and exquisite… her novel about a world without color—strange when what she writes is so colorful.”
— Marion Zimmer Bradley“Vividly described in rich prose that entrances like a magic spell, Lords of Rainbow will resonate with readers like the stories of childhood. It is not only prefaced with a lovely and accessible poem, it also reads like poetry. Thus, when taken as fable, there is much in this book to love. For in the end, we find a twisted Cinderella tale where an ugly, common girl can be elevated by noble spirit, and a city can be transformed by magic.”
— Stephanie Dray, Strange Horizons

Vera Nazarian is a two-time Nebula Award Nominee and member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, a writer and reader with a penchant for moral fables and stories of intense wonder, true love, and intricacy.

She is the author of critically acclaimed novels DREAMS OF THE COMPASS ROSE and LORDS OF RAINBOW, as well as the humorous Jane Austen parodies MANSFIELD PARK AND MUMMIES and NORTHANGER ABBEY AND ANGELS AND DRAGONS.

 

So … is that it?

Of course not!

Here are the details on the Kindle Nation Week #8 KINDLE FIRE Giveaway Sweepstakes:

There’s no purchase required, but we do need you to go to our Kindle Nation Facebook page and “Like” us. Give the page a few seconds to load, because for some
reason it takes a little longer. 

Then just scroll down and follow the prompts to enter the sweepstakes, and you’re done! (Of course, if you want to really improve your chances of winning by multiplying your good fortune by your good karma, we hope you’ll take a page from recent grand prize winner Steve Wisener’s book and pick up each of our sponsors’ titles. But like we say, there’s no purchase necessary.)

It’s that simple.

Good luck. And happy reading!

Did You Win a Kindle Fire Today? If You Are Vickie Ziel of Manchester, Iowa You Did! If Not, You Can Enter a Brand New KINDLE FIRE Giveaway Sweepstakes Right Now!

Once again it’s Monday evening in Kindle Nation, so we’ve got good news and bad news. And then we’ve got some more good news.

For the past week,THE HOUSE OF SIX DOORS author Patricia Selbert has been helping us all out by sponsoring Week #7 of our Kindle Nation KINDLE FIRE Sweepstakes.

We had a new record of 3,300 entries, and we had hundreds of winners.

Well, of course we had one big GRAND PRIZE winner. Kindle Nation citizen Vickie Ziel of Manchester, Iowa was randomly selected from all the entries to win a brand new KINDLE FIRE tablet. We connected with Vickie by email and telephone to confirm her identity and shipping address, and there will be a brand new Kindle Fire arriving on her doorstep the day after tomorrow, November 30.

But hundreds of other participants are big winners, too, because they’ve been among the many new readers of THE HOUSE OF SIX DOORS. Author Patricia Selbert paid for the Kindle Fire that will be arriving the day after tomorrow at Vickie’s home. Every penny. So it’s only fitting, on a Kindle Nation website that’s all about the reading, that an engaging coming-of-age novel that’s garnered 15 out of 16 rave reviews should gain exposure and build its fan base of readers by sponsoring a chance for thousands of avid readers to win a free Kindle Fire.
(What’s that? Did you want to see that link for THE HOUSE OF SIX DOORS one more time? Okay then. Thanks for asking!)

Those who haven’t won a Kindle Fire yet — yep, there’s that bad news we mentioned — will not have to wallow in despair for long. Why? Because we have already opened up our Kindle Nation Week #8 KINDLE FIRE Giveaway Sweepstakes. The Week #8 Sweepstakes will run until noon on Sunday, December 4, and entry details can be found at the end of this post.

But there’s another changing of the guard that we’re excited to announce: we have a brand new sponsor for Week #8, Vera Nazarian’s novel that no less an authority than the novelist Marion Zimmer Bradley has called “strange, poignant, and exquisite… her novel about a world without color—strange when what she writes is so colorful.”

Heads Up! 3 Days Left! You Have Until Sunday to Enter for Week #7 to Win a Brand New KINDLE FIRE in our Kindle Nation Daily Giveaway Sweepstakes, Sponsored by Patricia Selbert, author of THE HOUSE OF SIX DOORS

We are well into week #7 of our wild and crazy plan to give away a brand new Kindle Fire every week through the rest of this year and as much as we can of next, and we are already over two-thirds of the way toward surpassing last week’s record of 3,244 entries.

(Our WEEK #6 GRAND PRIZE winner, Michelle Taggart of Parker, CO, was randomly selected from all the entries to win a KINDLE FIRE tablet. We connected with Michelle by email and telephone to confirm her identity and shipping address, and her Kindle Fire was ordered Monday morning and Amazon delivered to her front porch at 5:13 pm yesterday.)

What about yours?

Maybe yours will be awarded in next Monday, but you know how this works, right? You can’t win it if you don’t enter.

And we’re especially grateful this Thanksgiving to the person who is making our Week #7 Kindle Fire giveaway sweepstakes possible as its sponsor, Patricia Selbert, author of the remarkably uplifting coming-of-age novel THE HOUSE OF SIX DOORS.

(And just in case you are wondering, Patricia has already paid the full cost of the new Kindle Fire that could very well have your name on it. Every penny. What’s that? If you have a good understanding of how karma works in these matters and you want us to repeat that link so you can make sure you have downloaded a copy of THE HOUSE OF SIX DOORS before our Week #7 drawing, thanks. But let’s be clear that while the cosmos works by its own rules, we of course have no way of knowing what you download from the Kindle Store.)

The Week #7 Sweepstakes runs until shortly after noon on Sunday November 27, and entry details can be found at the end of this post.

But first … a word from this week’s sponsor.

Here’s the set-up:
  • “Intimate, at times lyrical, charged with pain and wonder, laughter and perennial hope, The House of Six Doors is terrific storytelling.” Olga Rojer, Associate Professor, American University, Washington DC
  • “An honest tale of love, acceptance, and American dreams.” –El Mundo
  • “The House of Six Doors is a beautiful weave of hard reality and romance, so real that I couldn’t put it down.” -Nancy Marriott, co-author of “Everything You Need to Know to Feel Go(o)d”
  • If you feel as though the circumstances of your life are against you and you wonder whether this will ever change, this is a story that will fill you with hope. If you have ever wanted to believe that the circumstances of your life really do work for your ultimate best interest, read The House of Six Doors. –David Robert Ord, Namaste columnist and author, “Lessons in Loving, A Journey into the Heart”
  • “This is an honest and compelling coming-of-age story that follows a girl as she moves between two cultures, cradled between longing for her indigenous past and the glittering promise of her future in America. Selbert artfully shines light upon the honest transformation of an immigrant family, moving from memories of a windswept island and a grandmother’s wisdom to the poignant integration and reality facing all American immigrants.” – Carol Prunhuber, author of “Women: Around the World and Through the Ages”
  • “Selbert’s powerful, poignant tale provides a source of strength, in a brilliant, beautiful portrayal of a girl’s coming of age and her struggles with cultural differences.” –Reiki Master Julia Elizabeth Carroll, author of “Nu Reiki Oneness”
  • “This story rings true from beginning to end. From the moment we meet thirteen-year-old Serena with her fierce and erratic mother in the Miami airport, we know a heroine’s journey has begun. After leaving the Dutch island of Curacao and her beloved grandmother, Serena navigates two worlds, which the author captures in harsh details and lyrical memories, connecting past to present, and inviting the reader on a juxtaposed journey as well. Serena’s road is full of trials, tragedies, and triumphs, and in the end, we discover a determined young woman and writer has found her way.” –Janet Lucy, author of “Moon Mother, Moon Daughter ~ Myths and Rituals that Celebrate a Girl’s Coming of Age”
  • “Patricia Selbert weaves a powerful and poignant tale of wisdom in a tapestry providing a source of strength. The House of Six Doors tells the story of Serena’s authentic transformation: from young island girl to woman, from small town to big city life, with a strong helping of self-realization. This is my kind of fiction!” –Janice Cook Knight, author of “The Follow Your Heart Cookbook: Recipes from the Vegetarian Restaurant”
  • “You will find yourself torn between cheering for the mother and wanting to sit her down for an intervention. You will think about yourself and how you would deal with things if you were in that situation. You would wish to be enveloped in Serena’s grandmother’s arms and hear her wisdom. You’ll take that wisdom to heart for your own life. You will want to take Serena and hide her away from herself but then on the next page feel a sense of pride for her achievements. You will wish to live in Curacao but then thankful to live in your own town. You’ll find yourself wanting to read more of this book.” -Steena Holmes, book blogger at “Chocolate Blessings”
Serena, at thirteen, leaves her home on the colorful Caribbean island of Curaçao and her beloved grandmother, Oma, when her ambitious, impulsive, and emotionally unstable mother takes her and her sister to the United States in pursuit of the American Dream. They drive from Miami to Hollywood, where their luck runs out and a 1963 Ford Galaxie becomes their first American home. Compelling and exotic, the narrative weaves together the hard realities of 1970s Hollywood and memories of an innocent past. The story is rich and tangy, filled with images from around the world. The timeless wisdom Serena’s grandmother imparted to her becomes the compass by which Serena navigates the unscrupulous world she confronts. Filled with brilliant and visceral characters from multiple countries that come to life and reveal themselves and their cultures, The House of Six Doors gives the reader an intimate look at the complexities of an immigrant’s journey and a young girl’s coming of age in a multicultural Los Angeles. A pageturner, this story is so distinct and intimate that it becomes universal and leaves the reader with profound insights.

So … is that it?

Of course not!

Well, of course we had one big GRAND PRIZE winner. Judi Gordey of Upper Marlboro, Maryland, who has been a Kindle Nation citizen since May of this year, was randomly selected from all the entries to win a KINDLE FIRE tablet.

But hundreds of other participants are big winners, too, because they
have had a chance to discover Jack Harney’s true 5-star thriller THE MILLSTONE PROPHECY.

What if a ship carrying a cargo of stolen Russian missiles bound for Iran was mysteriously hijacked? What if Israel was secretly behind the hijacking? What if the guy who fills the vending machines in the office break room figured the whole thing out?
Based on actual events, OPEN SOURCE is a geopolitical thriller that follows Casey Shenk, a Savannah, Georgia, vending route driver with an insatiable curiosity, as he uncovers a black-market arms deal-gone-bad and the truth behind a high-level plot to shape world politics.
Casey draws his evidence from open sources; by reading beyond the headlines. When his theorizing catches the attention of the wrong people and anonymous threats turn deadly, Casey looks to Susan Williams, an intelligent, but insecure, analyst for the New York-based consulting firm Intelligence Watch Group for help. The two soon find themselves in the crosshairs and fighting to save their own lives, while preventing an even greater injustice that could affect the balance of power in the Middle East and plunge the world headlong into the next Great War.
One Reviewer Notes:
Casey Shenk is an ordinary man, living an ordinary life, with a sub-ordinary job, two ordinary friends and one unusual passion: blogging about world politics. He speaks only English, has a rather pedestrian education and loves spending time in lower class bars: but he is curious about the world he lives in, he doesn’t tire easily, and enjoys solving puzzles. The problem is that he also likes publishing his opinions and findings on the internet.

This is dangerous.

Intrigued by a bizarre news item, he uses his Google-fu to scour the public internet for clues and explanations; based on what he finds in open sources he assembles a plausible hypothesis, and posts it on his blog. The hypothesis is more right than wrong, and powerful people take notice; some see him as a problem to be solved once and for all, while
others see him as a potential resource to be used….

We are well into week #4 of our wild and crazy plan to give away a brand new Kindle Fire every week through the rest of this year and well into next, and we are already two-thirds of the way toward surpassing last week’s record of 2,227 entries.

(Our GRAND PRIZE winner, Kindle Nation citizen Steve Wisener of Northfield, Minnesota was randomly selected from all the entries to win a KINDLE FIRE tablet. The Fire is slated to ship on November 15, and Amazon has confirmed for us that Steve’s will arrive at his home by November 16!)

What about yours?

Maybe yours will be awarded in Week #4, but you know how this works, right? You can’t win it if you don’t enter.  For the Week #4 Sweepstakes,  novelist Jack Harney, author of the true 5-star thriller THE MILLSTONE PROPHECY is helping us all out as our sponsor. 

(And just in case you are wondering, Jack has already paid the full cost of that new Kindle Fire that could very well have your name on it. Every penny. What’s that? Did you ask me to re-post the link to THE MILLSTONE PROPHECY, and provide a link to Jack’s Amazon Author Page, because you understand how karma works in these matters? Okay then. Thanks for asking, and let’s be clear that while the cosmos works by its own rules, we of course have no way of knowing what you download from the Kindle Store.)

The Week #4 Sweepstakes runs until shortly after noon on Sunday November 6, and entry details can be found at the end of this post. But if you would like to guarantee that you are a winner when it comes to having great books to read, here’s a personal invitation to discover Jack Harney’s true 5-star thriller THE MILLSTONE PROPHECYat the terrific price of just $2.99! 18 straight Amazon reviewers have weighed in with rave reviews, and NYT’s best selling author Mary Jane Clark praised Harney’s page-turner on her Facebook page:

“On 9-13-2011, the Center for Constitutional Rights filed an 84 page complaint with the International Court at the Hague against the Vatican, the Pope and other named individuals for Crimes Against Humanity. In support of The Millstone Prophecy, NY Times best selling author, Mary Jane Clark, wrote on her Facebook page, ‘It’s as if Jack Harney had a crystal ball!’”

 

Here’s the set-up:

 

Famed N.Y.P.D. Lieutenant, Dax McGowan, attempts to track down and kill the pedophile priest who caused his daughter’s suicide. A citywide foot race soon turns into an international manhunt, taking Dax to the gates of Vatican City and beyond with startling results. An intransigent and deceitful church hierarchy, a politically weakened D.A.’s response, and mysterious assassins dispatched to “take him down” thwart his every move.

 

One Reviewer Notes:

 

“Jack Harney has crafted a clever page-turner with a cast of solid, persuasive characters who take the reader into the sordid underbelly of the Roman Catholic Church. Although a work of fiction, this intriguing mystery exposes many facts regarding the immoral machinations employed by Catholic hierarchies to protect and hide abusive priests. As the parent of a child abused by a priest, I could easily relate to both the heartache and the rage that gripped the hero, Dax McGowan, as he embarked on an international manhunt to locate the pedophile priest responsible for his young daughter’s suicide.”
