Anyone who buys any one of my eBooks on Gumroad during November will automatically be entered into a drawing to win a Nook Color from Barnes & Noble preloaded with a copy of every title I have released in 2020.

This is the most bizarre giveaway I could think of

Here is how it will work. During the month of November, all you need to do is buy any of my eBooks at Gumroad. At the end of the month, I will select one person at random and ship them a Nook Color tablet with a copy of each all three books I have released in 2020.

There will also be some “runner up” prizes (see below).

The Books

Here are the books in question, along with a link to purchase each of them.

Don’t Say That at Work: Lessons Learned from a Lifetime of Mistakes

Don't Say That at Work

Have you ever been told that your communication style is “too confrontational?” Do you have problems persuading your coworkers and managers without sounding arrogant or condescending? Have you said something and immediately regretted it? Have you ever said something you can’t take back? Have you ever wondered later, ‘what was I thinking???’

We have all been there. We all make mistakes. We all suffer from a lapse in good judgment from time to time. Sometimes these mistakes are a “one off” but when made repeatedly can lead to a domino effect of problems. When that happens, it can be hard to recover.

A Nook Color?

Why am I giving away the books on a Nook Color? Admittedly it’s a novelty. I was recently going through my old electronics and found my Nook Color from about 10 years ago. I charged it and turned it on. It still works! So, rather than throw it away or recycle it, I thought it would be fun to load my eBook titles on it and give it away.

Nook Color

No seriously? A Nook Color?

Sure, why not? Let’s face it, you aren’t really winning the Nook, but the titles loaded on it. I just thought it would be amusing to put the books on the device and award them that way. If you win and really don’t want the Nook, just let me know. I’ll understand, honest.

Prizes

  • 1 Grand Prize: The Nook Color with all four of my books (including the unreleased one).
  • 5 1st Prizes: All three of my current books.
  • 10 2nd Prizes: Any one of my current books of your choice.

What’s the fine print?

I will only ship the Nook to an address in the United States. If the Grand Prize winner is from outside the US, the winner will automatically receive one of my 1st prizes, and then I will select an additional winner.

If you want to enter the giveaway without purchasing anything at all, that’s fine, too. Simply follow me on twitter (@WalkingRiver) and tweet a link to this post, including the hashtag #BizarreGiveaway. I’ll make sure you’re entered.
