Yes, I'm Giving Away A Kindle!

A Deadly Cliché
Kindle Contest!


The purpose: To generate early sales for A Deadly Cliché and to thank the readers who’ve made A Killer Plot such a success.
The prize: An all-new 3G Kindle Wireless Reading Device (winner can choose between white or graphite) shipped directly to your address!
How to enter: Email me at elleryadams@comcast.net and tell me that you’ve pre-ordered A Deadly Cliché or plan to purchase a copy after its release date (March 1, 2011) or plan to request that your library order a copy.
No purchase is required to enter this contest (I must state that or I will be in trouble with a host of lawyers) but I am trying to encourage great sales for A Deadly Cliché, so a purchase would be appreciated.

You don’t have to send me a receipt – your word is good enough for me.
Your email address will not be captured. I will delete each email as soon as the contest ends. If you would like to sign up for my bi-annual newsletter, please do so here.
The contest runs from today-March 7. A winner will be drawn on March 8th.
Good luck! 

P.S.  Here's a quick description of the book:
While walking her poodle, Olivia Limoges discovers a dead body buried in the sand. Could it be connected to the bizarre burglaries plaguing Oyster Bay, North Carolina? At every crime scene, the thieves set up odd tableaus: a stick of butter with a knife through it, dolls with silver spoons in their mouths, a deck of cards with a missing queen. Olivia realizes each setup represents a cliché. And who better to decode the cliché clues than her Bayside Book Writers group?

It can be preordered on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or via any independent bookstore.  (You can also pre-order e books from Amazon and Barnes & Noble for your e reader!)

I'd like to read a blurb on the book. Where can I find that and where would one pre-order if one so desired?

The Cozy Chicks said...

Groovyoldlady . . . we added a description at the end of the blog with suggestions of where readers can pre-order the book! Good luck--you might be the winner!

I definitely plan on buying it. I loved a Killer Plot.

I currently do not have any kind of e-reader so winning would be great. E mail sent.

I'm reading A Killer Plot right now (I like to read a series in order, if possible), and plan to order A Deadly Cliché as soon as it's released. I'd love to win the Kindle for my daughter-in-law. She and my son are in Mexico, so won't be here for their birthdays. I'd like to surprise her in May w/a belated gift of a Kindle. Thanks for offering such a great prize! And good luck to all who entered.
