Outskirts Press Announces Winner of Barnes & Noble NOOK in Facebook Contest

Outskirts Press, America’s fastest growing self-publishing and book marketing company, announced today the results of the random drawing from among its five thousand Facebook fans at http://facebook.com/OutskirtsPress.  David Olson of Albuquerque, NM will be “springing” to his mailbox to pick up his new Barnes & Noble NOOK e-Reader. Congratulations, David!

Barnes & Noble NOOK“We hope David will have many hours of reading pleasure from his new NOOK e-Reader,” said Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson.  “It’s just our special way of saying thank you to all of our enthusiastic fans for liking Outskirts Press on Facebook.”

The Barnes & Noble NOOK e-Reader is a high tech treasure for any 21st century reader.  Over 2.5 million (and growing) books, magazines, newspapers, comics, and more can be downloaded with this handy device. Paired with available free in-store support and in-store reading, the NOOK is a great complement to any reader’s collection.

Readers also cut down on their entertainment expenses with available library borrowing available on the device.

The NOOK itself is very lightweight and compact.  It weighs less than eight ounces and fits handily in any pocket or small purse.  It can hold a personal library of books – and the new E Ink screen reads as easily as real paper.  There is no glare, and one can read as clearly outside under a bright sun as in the muted light of one’s own living room.

A single charge of the battery keeps readers turning pages for over two months – made all the easier with NOOK’s faster new page turner function — and there is always free WI FI access at AT&T hotspots across the country.  One can also connect to WI FI hotspots at home or on the road.

Apple iPadExclusive Outskirts Press anthologies, announcements and contests through its social channels are just another way the self-publishing company helps keep its social friends and authors united and engaged in the act of writing, reading, and publishing.   In fact, just recently, Patricia A. Hawkenson, author of Magnetic Repulsion: 100 Poems From Desire to Disgust, was awarded a free iPad 2 from Outskirts Press for her “Video Valentine” submission, which was voted the most popular in a public poll. “Wow! Thank you, Outskirts Press! This was a FUN opportunity, and [runner-up] Rev. Judy Neal is very deserving of her prize. I am so glad she is to receive a special gift, as well. It was a close nail biting race, and I enjoyed the competition more because our results kept changing as our friends, family, and supporters came to vote for each of us. Thank you, again, to all involved. I’m feeling the luv!”

The prize runner-up Judy Neal won was an iPad e-book edition of her book, Another Woman at the Well…, also published by Outskirts Press, which offers e-book publishing and distribution options for the three largest e-book platforms: Amazon (http://outskirtspress.com/p/kindle), Barnes & Noble Nook (http://outskirtspress.com/p/nook) and the Apple iPad (http://outskirtspress.com/p/ipad).
