Crooked Love Book- Kindle Edition and a Giveaway!

Heidi Ferrer Crooked Love

I’m so excited, my first novel Crooked Love is now available on Kindle as an eBook for only $5.99!

Truth: It was incredibly hard to format the book for the eBook version and I almost gave up. Microsoft Word pretty much made me want to kill myself and be put out of my misery. But after banging my head against the wall for six hours on Monday, I figured it out, man.

To celebrate the fact that I lived and didn’t have to get drunk over it- a GIVEAWAY!

I’m giving away three signed, kissed and blessed copies of the paperback version of the book (but you can have the eBook instead if you prefer).

To enter, just leave a comment below this post. If you’ve already bought the book, you can still enter of course- maybe give it away as a present. (I will donate the $2 to charity on the giveaway books, too, don’t worry about that.)

I figured I should at least be able to read my own eBook, so I bought my first Kindle, the very cool Kindle Fire HD from Amazon, for $199.00. It’s my early and only Christmas present, but it’s really a present for the whole family, because everyone will be using it.

I haven’t shown it to my kiddo Bex yet because he’s gonna freak out and want to play all of his video game apps like Angry Birds on it. I think we’ll have to set some boundaries for the toothless young-un.

I must say I freakin’ love new technology these days. My review of the Kindle so far (and this post is not sponsored by anyone) is that it makes buying and reading books really easy, the book appears in your hand as soon as you touch the button to purchase it, like magic.

I think you could use a tablet like this for pretty much everything, for social media like Facebook and reading blogs it’s awesome, also for reading all other websites and Internet surfing and games. I haven’t watched a movie on it, yet. I bet YouTube works well, it has great sound.

The only thing I think you couldn’t do with it is serious long form writing, like I wouldn’t want to write a screenplay or a novel on a tablet, but I bet you could blog from it, if you had to. I know people who have blogged from their iPhones during a hurricane, so this has to be easier than that.

It seems pretty awesome for travel, too. That’s my review so far, if you don’t need to do any serious writing, you could probably use a Kindle or similar device for everything you would use a laptop computer for, and it’s way cheaper!

In other fun news, I got to see the first two episodes of the web series I’m in called Motherbloggers. (We changed the title from Mommybloggers, now it sounds more MuthaFunny Tuff.)

It’ll launch sometime in January, yo. and you can watch it on your computer or on a streaming device to your TV called a Roku box.

 

The mom talk show is a lot of fun and fabulous to be a part of, we were just getting our feet wet with the first try and it still looks pretty awesome. Of course, I’m typically self critical and found a million things wrong with myself on video, but that’s par for the course with my body dysmorphia, low self esteem, bipolar-2 personality, etc. I’ll let you know when I have a date for the first show to air and I’ll try to work on my on-camera poise and verbal tics.

Anyway, I’m really proud of this book and the money it’s already raising for the charities who saved my boy. Thank you to everyone who purchased a copy so far! Seriously.

For the eBook Kindle edition, click here. Psst: You don’t have to buy a Kindle to order the eBook, they have a free Kindle reader app that anyone can download to their computer to buy and read the books that way.

By the way, they activated the “Look Inside the Book” feature on the regular paperback book page on Amazon, so you can check out more pages if ya want. Here is the link for the Crooked Love paperback again.

For anyone who missed it, here is a sample chapter.

Just a reminder, two dollars of each sale of the Kindle version still goes to the two non-profit charities that help treat and cure babies and young children with Progressive Infantile Scoliosis.

(The only reason the paperback costs more is because of Amazon printing costs.)

The Kindle has several versions, like I said, I got the HD one for $199.00, there’s also one that’s not HD called just the Kindle Fire for $159.00. If you want to check out the one I got, click here.

Don’t forget to leave a comment, you’re helping the cause just by learning about this condition, and hopefully you’ll be entertained and you may just save a life in the future with your knowledge. Maybe after you’ve read it, give the book to a friend, to a hospital, or to a library. But only if you want to, someone may pick it up who it could help.

    I LOVE my Kindle. I haven’t bought the book yet but would love to win the e-version. If not, I am getting it first thing next month!!!

    The only think I don’t like about the Kindle when traveling is having to turn it off for take off and landing. Sometimes I will take hard copies of books on trips to avoid this. I don’t know why it annoys me so, but it does.
