…And only asking for a little bit of love in return.
As you may know, we’ve had quite a run of success with Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, which has been on the New York Times bestseller list for 42 weeks and counting. And that kind of long term appreciation for a book is a rare gem. As a thank you from me to you, representing all of my readers, and all the readers of my clients’ wonderful, amazing titles, I’m giving away something big this time. Not just a couple of books I had in my office, not even a limited edition tote bag or flash drive (made especially for my clients as holiday gifts).
No, I wanted to do something bigger. Something that thanks you for your love of reading and rewards it. Shall I get to the point?
I’m giving away a brand new Kindle Touch.
Guys, *I* don’t even have one of these. I’ve got a first-generation Kindle, which is the 1970s Battlestar Galactica compared to the Kindle Touch’s shiny new reboot.
So what do you have to do to win? Actually, there are three different ways: first, leave a comment here. That gets you one entry. You can also check out my Page on Facebook and like me. Another entry. (What can I say? I crave your validation!) Or, you can tweet about the contest on Twitter, mentioning me, @DaphneUn, and linking to this post. That gets you a single entry as well. Want a better shot of winning? Do all three! (Maximum number of entries allowed is three, so please don’t spam your friends and Twitter followers, or think that multiple comments here will do the trick. One entry for each method of spreading the word!) I’ll randomly pick a winner from all the entries on Monday, April 9th.
And thanks. For everything you do that makes sitting here and blogging and crawling through the slush pile worth it. Thanks.

Read Miss Peregrine shortly after it was first published . . . then made my daughter read it. We both said it needs to be made into a movie–glad to see someone took our advice ; )

I would like a Kindle, please! I have the Kindle Fire, and would actually prefer the Kindle Touch.
I usually just lurk here, but hey. Free Kindle. 🙂
A book blogger can always use an ereader. Please count me in…
First of all congratulations to you and Ransom on the success of Miss Peregrine’s it’s a truly special and unique book beautifully written and one of the best designed and presented books I have seen in many many years and Quirk were the ideal choice to publish. This book reslly helped me as I have struggled for years to read as I find it really hard to concentrate. I was an avid reader in my teens but as I grew older I found it harder and harder to concentrate on daily things. When I first saw the viral image of the cover in Twitter I was fascinated by the image being a fan of the weird and gothic it just screamed ‘read me!’. Thankfully I tracked down a copy (first edition too!) and it was one of the first books I have managed to get through in many years. Thank you and wishing you all continued success. E.
That sounds AWESOME! My wife loved Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children. I haven't read it, yet, but it's on my list 😀
What a great contest. Thank you! And congratulations to you and Ransom Riggs on the success of this book. I loved it.
Thank you so much for you to have a giveaway for a Kindle Touch. That is such a kind thing to do. I really appreciate chances at things like this. I’m already following you on Twitter – @Insomniac_24_7. I’ve also liked your Facebook page as well – http://www.facebook.com/INSOMNIAC247. I love sharing these kinds of things with others to let them know about this kind of generosity. Again, thanks for the chance.
42 weeks and counting? That's amazing! Congratulations.
