Looking For Contest Ideas

Audio Sample
I'm going to hold another contest, this time to give away an Audible version of one of my novels.

The simplest contest to hold would be "enter to win!" This kind of contest has the advantage of having a low barrier to entry. I've done it before, and I got an overwhelming response.

The other time I ran a contest, it was for a kindle ebook version of Spinner Of Lies, and I asked contest entrants to "spin me their best lie" on their social network to enter. The number of entries fell by an order of magnitude.

So.... I wonder which is better, or if there's a better middle ground, a contest that requires fewer hoops? Putting on my thinking cap, but if you have a suggestion, I'd love to hear it!
