I have just gotten a box full of COYOTE DREAMS in the mail. It is *pretty*. Very, very pretty. And I actually want to sit down and /read/ it, which is fairly unusual and quite cool: I like the book that much.

For the next 24 hours, people should tell me why it is I should send them a copy of the book, and the top 3 reasons will get a copy. If the reason is "Because you promised to send me a copy of WINTER MOON or PHOENIX LAW eight months ago the last time you did this sort of thing and never got around to it, you git," uh, email me (cemurphyauthor at gmail dot com) separately and I will do my best to rectify my gittitude this week. :)

Because I had such an awesome time meeting you and talking with you in the bar at World Fantasy back in November. (I was the one telling you to come to RWA national.) ;)

You should send me a copy so I can start pimping it out at work (aka Barnes and Nobles) in addition to the other books that I pimp out! ;)

Can I start with reasons why you shouldn't send me one?

(I'd feel terribly greedy after getting free copies of two, nay, three, OK, 2.33333 previous books of yours. No, don't feel rejected - I bought US and TF, and I will certainly buy this one too. So I'm an ingrate who hasn't thanked you and Ted properly yet for the Octocon handouts.)

You should send me a book because 1) I will enjoy it 2) I will loan it to others to enjoy 3) I've never had the pleasure to meet you in person, and being in NC, lack the probable opportunity, and barring that possibility, getting a book straight from the author of such fantastic, flawed but strong women characters would be the next coolest thing.

Because you love me.

Because we both love Rogue?

Because you did horrible teasing things with that first chapter and I want to read it now, now, now?

Because I want to tell my friends that this new awesome book is out?

Because I'm almost done with a well written but rather scholarly book on the Pelopponesian War and I need something fun to read next? If you sent me one my choice would be easy.

Because I said so?

Because pretty please with sugar on top?

Ummmmmmmm..... I can come up with more.

heee! *thinks hard*

hmmmm.... why you should send me a copy...how about because rather than checking out copies of Urban Shaman and Thunderbird Falls from my local library i waited impatiently for amazon.ca to [finally] get copies in... and i *bought them... and i *didn't download them from a newsgroup because i *needed the purties on my shelf. *pets the purties* and that during the TWO MONTHS i had to wait for amazon to ship out the boooookses i pimped you like mad to all my friends and family...and that i'll cry like a baby if i have to wait [again] for the 3rd book...

and did i mention that in addition to being incredibly talented you are cute as a button and i love your hair? ;)

Because I am so stressed over the whole buying-another-house thing that I really need something good to distract me, and because I still haven't yet managed to pick up any of your books. Suddenly getting a copy of Coyote Dreams will mean I have to go buy the previous books, since having a book in the middle of a series sitting there taunting me is not something I'll be able to resist.

Because my boyfriend just broke up with me because he "can't worry about me while he's at basic and AIT training" aka he doesn't want me to find another man and write him a letter breaking up with him (seriously, wtf?), but REALLY it's because I don't "share" enough of my "feelings" with him despite me desperately clinging to him in the past week moreso than I have in the entire 9 months we were dating which was exactly what he wanted the unholy bastard, and I'd rather have something amazingly awesome to read than to summon up my primal Russian bloodlust and go slice off his head with our OJ knife.

Yeeeeeah. Sorry. Leeeetle rant there. *sheepish cough*

Plus I totally dressed up like a slutty pirate wench and met Terry Prachett and got a picture with said amazing author in said amazing slutty pirate wench get up.

I dunno what that has to do with Coyote Dreams, but I think it's pretty damn cool.

Because I live in Seattle and spent a significant amount of time trying to figure out the actual location where Joanne saw the woman from the plane. (Unsuccessfully I might add.)

Because I've reviewed both the others on my LJ and press them on my friends.

rfrancis on March 28th, 2007 04:07 pm (UTC)
Because I will promptly talk about the book to a hundred or so avid listeners, even if you don't ever let me interview you!

Coyote Dreams
The best I could come up with is because I hate to wait, but now that I have enough income from working two jobs I can afford to buy it. I just hate having to wait :).

I love your books! I can't wait either for TQB, which I was dismayed to see was moved to a later publication. Aarrggh!

Re: Coyote Dreams
I assure you, I am also dismayed. :)

You should because:
* You never phone me
* I just had to buy my second Urban Shaman because somebody permanently borrowed my first
You shouldn't because:
* I've bummed altogether too many free books off you
* International postage

Mine, too. It's a plague of Urban Shaman borrowers!

Can I request for someone else? :) I think you should send a copy to my friend Amy, because she has to start chemotherapy soon, and getting a shiny new book that she's been anticipating in the mail would probably be a very nice bright spot in her world!
