Contest to Celebrate early e-release of Mayan December

I got an unexpected gift today from Prime Books. Perhaps it will cause a few of you to get gifts, too. Mayan December can now be purchased in eBook for Kindle and Nook. So here’s how this might benefit you. The first three people who review the book in either platform and contact me via email (which can be done from this site) will win. That will be 6 winners. So the six prizes will be:

  • 2 hardcovers of “The Silver Ship and the Sea,”
  • 1 ARC for “Building Harlequin’s Moon” (written with Larry Niven)
  • 2 copies of “Year’s Best SF 16” which has a story by me and a lot of other great stories in it; and
  • 1 copy of the military SF anthology “Defending the Future IV: No Man’s Land,” which also has a story by me and a lot of other great stories in it.

Winners can pick in the order they win — so the first person to post a review gets their first pick! Etc.  Etc.  You get the idea….and they are true prizes.  I will pay the shipping to anywhere in the US.

Here are the links for the eBooks:

Mayan December at Amazon.com (Kindle)

Mayan December at Barnes and Noble (Nook)

Note:  The physical book will not be available until August 23rd.

There’s no advantage for more or less stars, and no advantage for liking the book.  I’m hoping reviews will be genuine.  They must show that the reviewer has read the book!  There is a time limit:  Reviews need to be up by the time the physical book comes out…so the contest ends whenever all six prizes have been claimed or August 23rd, 2011, whichever is sooner.

And since we’re still climbing out of the great recession, any people who want a FREE chance at a physical book can email me, and I’ll draw for one to three winners on release day.  No cost to entrants at all.

Just to tease you a bit, here’s what a recent reader said about the book:

“A brilliant mix of culture, history, science fiction and fantasy, Cooper has written a delight for the senses. A fun read with interesting characters, surprising twists, and interesting ideas. A departure for her, it will also carry readers away to a new place and a new time in a fun way they’re sure to enjoy.” – Bryan Thomas Schmidt, Science Fiction And Fantasy Writer’s Chat www.bryanthomasschmidt.net/sffwrtcht and author of the forthcoming novel “The Worker Prince.”
