And the winner is…

Yes, folks, today’s the big day. The day I go to Random.org, type in the total number of entries I’ve had for my “Only In New Jersey” Kindle Cover giveaway, hit the ‘generate’ button, and announce the lucky winner!

I’m delighted to report this month I’ve had record traffic on my blog. I’ve also had my best month so far, sales-wise, for Last Exit In New Jersey. As my daughter would put it, I’m one happy panda. However…. due to underwhelming interest, I’ve received a total of… brace yourselves… THREE entries.

I guess a cover made of convertible roof fabric and a New Jersey license plate isn’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea. But for three of you it is, and what great odds! So, with no further ado, here it is…

Here’s a closer view…

There you have it. Entry number three. Congratulations Lindsay! I’ll be emailing you directly, and thank you all for participating!

It’s the “Only in New Jersey Kindle Cover” Contest!

Straight from the highways of New Jersey, it’s the coolest, most unique Kindle cover out there! Take the tough, durable black sailcloth from the convertible roof of one genuine Garden State pedigree Ford Mustang; hinge it with the extraordinarily strong webbing from that very same convertible. Line it with luxurious red satin brocade, add one genuine state of New Jersey license plate, and you’ve got a Kindle cover that’s been down the road and back!  Not only will the N.J. Mustang Kindle Cover protect the precious contents within; it’s a Kindle cover you won’t find anywhere else!

There’s only one thing: it’s not for sale! The only way to get one of these amazing covers is to enter the “Only in New Jersey” Kindle cover contest!  It’s fun, it’s easy, and there’s no purchase necessary!  Simply email me the name of the song Annabel is singing along to in the beginning of Last Exit In New Jersey  — it’s not all that far into the free sample —  and you’ll be entered into a drawing for your choice of the amazing Mustang Kindle cover. If you prefer a more subtle style, the N.J. Mustang Kindle Cover is also available in an ‘Unlicensed’ version.

For anyone wondering what keeps the Kindle in, it’s secured by Command strips to a smooth plastic panel within the cover. This keeps the Kindle attached firmly, yet leaves it completely removeable with not a mark left behind.

All entries must be received by September 30th. Send your answers to: cegrundler(at)gmail.com; be sure to put “Only in New Jersey” into the subject line. Emails will be numbered in order of receipt and I’ll email you back with your entry number confirmation. On Friday, October 1st a random number will be selected though Random.org  http://www.random.org/  I’ll post a screen-shot by 12 noon and announce the winner.

But WAIT!    There’s more! 

If you are the lucky winner and you also emailed me which song is playing in Stevenson’s Mercedes, (yes, you do have to read beyond the sample for that one) you’ll also receive a special bonus prize. And finally, if you’re the lucky winner and you ALSO posted a review and/or mentioned Last Exit In New Jersey on your web-site or blog, you receive TWO bonus prizes!

Note: The actual New Jersey license plate the winner receives may vary; the one pictured here once graced a former car of mine. Your cover will be made for you and you alone to fit your specific Kindle, whatever the model. No Mustangs were harmed in the making of this cover. In fact, the Mustang that generously donated its top to this contest is now sporting a new roof and looking fine.
