Amazon E-Gift Card Giveaway in Honor of My Second Kindle Scout Campaign

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]The giveaway is over. You can check out the winners at

Newsletter subscribers can claim their free book by updating their preferences. (There is an update preferences link at the bottom of the email that went out on the morning of November 22. If you signed up after that time, there will be another one coming to new subscribers soon.)


[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]This is a chance to get a sneak peak at my new novel, Haunted by the Devil, and have an opportunity to win prizes at the same time.

For those of who aren’t aware, Amazon has a program called Kindle Scout that allows readers to play a role in selecting which titles will be published by the Amazon imprint, Kindle Press. The giveaway is a thank-you in advance to anyone who takes the time to give the book a look. Those who feel so inclined can nominate it for consideration by the Kindle Scout editors. (However, as it says in the terms and conditions, only visiting the page is required to complete that particular entry. What you do once you get there is entirely up to you and has no effect on the contest.

For your convenience, terms and conditions are listed below:

  • The giveaway is void where prohibited. It is also void in any place in which the nature of size or the prizes would trigger extra reporting requirements.
  • No purchase is necessary to enter, nor will making a purchase improve your odds of winning.
  • There is no entry free for the giveaway. Entrants receive points for entries based on simple actions (such as Twitter following, for example) that do not require enough time to amount to a “consideration” (nonmonetary fee) under the law.
  • The option to visit the Kindle Scout contest page does not require you to take any particular action, nor will taking any action improve your chances of winning. (Nominate the book only if you think it’s worthy!)
  • The giveaway is sponsored by Bill Hiatt. Any reference to companies is only for the purpose of describing the prizes and does not imply any endorsement or sponsorship of the giveaway.
  • The number of prizes will never be less than advertised unless there are not as many entrants as there are prizes. However, the sponsor reserves the right, at his sole discretion, to award additional prizes in the event of an unexpectedly large entry.
  • The sponsor reserves the right to modify any element of the giveaway if necessary to comply with unforeseen legal requirements.
  • The sponsor will make a good faith effort to operate the giveaway appropriately. However, the sponsor will not assume responsibility for circumstances beyond his control (for example, website server failure).
  • All entrants must either be legal adults in the jurisdiction in which they reside or entering with parental permission. Entrants who do not meet this requirement will be disqualified.
  • Entrants must provide a valid email address. Entrants who do not provide a valid email address cannot be awarded any prizes which they have won until they correct their records. The email addresses will not be used for any non-contest-related purpose.
  • People who attempt to register as more than one entrant through the use of multiple email addresses or by any other device will be disqualified. (One entrant may make multiple entries, as Gleam defines the term.)
  • Entrants who report the completion of entries that they have not in fact completed will be disqualified.
  • All times listed are in Pacific Time.
  • Every effort will be made to award all prizes within one week. If a delay is unavoidable, that will be noted on the giveaway page.

  3. First thing that popped into my mind? There’s this saying about loving to the moon and back, now why not replace the moon with Hell. 🙂
    I really like the premise of your new book, plus stubborn characters are always my favorites.

    Congratulations on the book. It looks incredible. Nominated and can’t wait to read it.

  9. I didn’t even know this amazon program existed. It’s cool to give new authors a chance, wonder if this is how the editors might get help to pick which books get chosen for the free pre-release amazon prime books once a month.

  10. I am an avid reader of books that keep me on the edge of my seat! I can tell this book will make me do just that!

  11. It sounds like a great book. I was happy to nominate you on Kindle Scout. Best wishes and I hope they pick you. Congratulations in advance.

  12. Been viewing paranormal for years. However, I love reading horror books and viewing movies, but am scared for ages. Paranormal does not faze me… When reading, I never want to put the book down. I am a big scary cat lol

  13. Loved the description, was definitely intrigued by the except enough to nominate the book! Love the cover too! Good luck!

  14. I thought it was intriguing. I peeked my interest into what the book was about. I thought it interesting that the book is written by an English teacher.

  15. Congratulations!!! And thanks for the chance at an amazing prize!! I’ll be adding this book to my Christmas break reading list, for sure!!!

  16. Dear Bill Hiatt:
    Haunted by the Devil (Soul Salvager Book 1) reads as if there’s a story before it, about how Chris fell in love with Amanda, who was compelled to tempt him, sold his soul (or got a free trial) to get her as his girlfriend, and was rescued by Gavin and Carla. Has that story been written? Could I read it?

    1. Andrea, the giveaway widget won’t load if you have third-party cookies disabled. You should still be able to click “Click here to enter,” and have it work. If that doesn’t work either, try going direct to That should do the trick.

  17. I found Haunted by the Devil very interesting. Chris is trying to convince Boy Wonder not to sell his soul to the devil because it’s not worth it. He explain how he was in the same situation. After reading the first to chapters I want to know what else happens.
    Kindle Scout to be very helpfull.
