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. :)

I should get a free copy of this book because I like to walk around and read books out loud to the trees, rocks and ghosts in the world (being that they have no fingers or hands that would allow them to read their own books). I have it on very good faith from the trees (they wiggle their leaves at all the right moments) and the ghosts (they keep stepping through me and give me the chills) that they enjoy your work in particular very much. Unfortunately, the rocks just tend to sit there. They're a tough crowd.

I think you should send me a copy because when you do I will:

1) Immediately obtain copies of Urban Shaman and Thunderbird Falls and read them.
2) Read it.
3) Reread them all at Octocon and the next P-Con while being obvious at the front desk, telling simply *everyone* who walks in the door how fantastic they are, no really, and she's just over there, you can go pester her and talk to her for hours and hours and hours...
4) In five years, when you've got more money than Rowling, blog about how you used to do the small conventions, and be a real fan's guest. I could also sell copies of your pictionary scribbles on e-bay for thousands of euro.
5) Wonder why I started writing this in the first place.
6) Remember your name when you next appear at a con front desk?
7) Buy you alcohol?

So there you go then...

I gave you Flintstones! And Dresden! And Crisco! :)

(OK, seriously, no I did that because I wanted to. But your post incited me to be cheeky. ;)

Because I'm a giant pregnant lady who needs something to read while she's losing her mind trying to feed a baby!

er. :)


Well, no, I'm not actually kidding. It's true. I am. And I will. But that doesn't mean it's the awesomest reason ever to send a book :D

because I will swing by, pick it up in person and take you out for coffee/tea/chocolate

Send me a copy because I love this series and cant wait until May, and I might just go into a deep depression and hury myself- Tevans

You should send me one because my cats demand it. Especially the shaved Maine Coon, who's suffering from depression because he got the lion cut for summer.

The coyote pooka in my icon (he's the one with the flowers) likewise demands so.

That, and of course I love your books. :>

So I can be the second person in Norway with a book signed by Kit? I sort of keep hoping to run into you now that we're on the same continent (give or take a North Sea) and get something signed, but Ireland is sooooo far away!

You should send me a copy because this is the most fantastic series, I pimp it out to my sister and friends, I've bought copies of books so other people will read them, and because I'm horribly, horribly broke and probably won't be able to buy it this time. *cries*
Traveler Farlandertwfarlan on March 28th, 2007 06:21 pm (UTC)
Here's a reason you should NOT send me a copy: I lend people books that I think they will like. So far, my wife and I have lended copies of your previous Walker Papers books to about a dozen people. So really, giving me a free copy is like giving ten people free copies. They'll all end up reading either way, but they'll have to PAY UP. ... or well, I will, anyway. ;)

Because I'm a terrible person for wanting one for myself when other people have much better reasons? :(

Plus I'll quit working on GURPS Catiethulhu....

1. Because I'm an awesome nifty person that does his best to post useful responces to your posts (And if I have no useful responce, I'll likely post a useless responce just as well -grin-).

2. Because I'm a rabid fan that haunts bookstores and actively places your book covers forward anytime I find them in book stores (You know, one of those folks booksellers hate).

3. Because Hugh Jackman refused to leave you a forwarding address and has that restraining order up. So if you don't mind, I'd like his copy :)

This is sad -- I'm a grown man, but I'm so excited about the upcoming release there's too much of a mental squeal of joy to actually come up with a reason... :(
tarsh: Giles bookaholictarshaan on March 28th, 2007 07:04 pm (UTC)
Because my sister flew to NYC to pick me up a copy of Urban Shaman* after I picked up Thunderbird Falls at PCon, and I don't think I can talk her into flying back again to pick up Coyote Dreams...

*Okay, not just for that. But it makes for a better reason slanted that way

I would clamor for a copy to be mailed to me because I would love to have another signed one (and am not likely to mail TF or CD dreams to you, unlike my geeky US action), except that I have this friend living in France at the moment, and if I can get the dosh together, hope to go visit her at some point this year, and if I'm already on the other side of pond, well damnit, I've always wanted to see England, and then you're right there in Ireland, and well. So then I'd ask you for a (signed) copy, in person.

But since I won't know for months if that'll happen, I won't make too much of a noise. Even if I do keep you in Rogues. ^_~
