sudden random book giveaway  
I was just sorting through boxes of books and realized/discovered I have about a zillion copies of THE PHOENIX LAW and a number of copies of FIREBIRD DECEPTION sitting around, and thought perhaps I'd have a sudden random book give-away.

Leave a comment with some kind of story or reason as to why I should send you a copy of one, or even *both*, of the books, and I'll send out copies to the top three or five or so that strike me as funniest or cleverest or something-else-est. :) I'll decide on Tuesday, probably.

(I do not, I'm sorry, have any give-away copies of CARDINAL RULE left, so you may have to hunt one down if you want the whole series.)

Today's bit of random was brought to you by the letter "Penguin"
Hullo! I friended you a while ago, but have managed to refrain from randomly writing things on your blog until now (which any of my friends could tell you counts as a surprising act of will-power on my part ;) ), but since you invited comments, I feel no guilt!

So now I shall tell you a true story:

Several nights ago, I think it was Thursday or Friday, I had a rather long dream based around the fact that I got turned into a mermaid. Or rather, turned into someone who could live underwater and above-water, but didn't have a tail. Anyways, after many exciting and random adventures involving such diverse activities as sneaking through a fish market, spelunking, packing a week's worth of clothing into a small satchel, climbing sand dunes, building a dragon boat, making wooden semaphores, and stealing bottled tea from my cousin, I ended up inland at a market square sort of place. There I walked into a book store and offered to sign any copies of my books which were on display. So I signed several books with a ball point pen which was nearly out of ink. The very nice store owner then gave me a sharpie, (despite the only other customers in the store being so disturbed by the concept of someone writing in books that they left) which wrote much more clearly. And that was the first time I was able to see my name "C. E. Murphy" in a nice round script. which was the first point in this dream where I thought "uh.... this is a bit odd." The end.
