HOUSE OF CARDS giveaway!  

The time hath arrived! I shall announce with grandeur and splendour and a couple of other -eur-sounding-words who the lucky winners of HOUSE OF CARDS are! In no particular order:

suzannemcleod, because her surname makes me mumble, “I am Duncan MacLeod of the Clan MacLeod,” when I see it, but also because she offered to donate 2x the cover price to the WWF and switch off for Earth Hour, which is an excellent way to my save-the-world heart;

bellinghman, for inadvertently explaining to me why it is I’ve always thought “Janx” was a familiar enough word to make a reasonable name: Oh don’t give me no more of that Old Janx Spirit, he wrote, and clarity fell down upon me like a light from the heavens, singing “AaaaaAAAAAH!” in the way that one expects light from the heavens to do;

Kari on my mizkit.com blog (as opposed to the LJ), for de-lurking and announcing her presence as well as having had the obviously excellent taste to like my books long before she found my blog;

lithera, who really has had a crap year thus far and who could use some cheering up,

and damedini, because she also needs some cheering up, and because I have love in my heart for her default usericon (look, I’m shallow, okay? I’m good with that!). :)

If the winners would email me your snailmail addresses at cemurphyauthor at gmail dot com, and put “HoC winner address” in the subject line, that would be quite splendid. :)

But if you have not gotten a copy, do not despair! This week over on the League of Reluctant Adults blog, they’ll be discussing HEART OF STONE as their first book of the month club book. At the end of the week I’ll give another copy away to an active participant, so go forth, be active, participate, and get a second chance at an early copy of HoC. :)

And to wrap up, I’ve gotten the cover for the third and final book in the Negotiator Trilogy! HANDS OF FLAME, due out in September 2008! (Click through to see a larger version. :))

Holy guacamole! Very nice cover. An entire trilogy in on year - I am in ecstasy. Seriously. I'm all about instant gratification, my ovaries applaud you.

Congratulations to all the lucky free-copy procurers!! May you wield your winnings wisely!

- curiosity (yeah, the same one from cemurphy.net comments.)

Very nice cover. Already the new desktop pattern.

I especially like the other two books displayed on the back. Sort of shouts, "Hey, we've got other cool books, you really shouldn't miss them." :-)

There is nothing I love more than a writer that writes. And often. Unless they run out of words (the Xanth series died a loooooong time ago) and continue to write drivel for years. Akin to a skeleton at the end of the world banging away at a keyboard.
So keep writing!
Especially keep writing about a certain Urban Shaman.

I love the colors on the spine and title bar.

I can't wait to read them both!

Thank you!

I am REALLY loving these covers. I love the covers for your Urban Shaman books, too, but something about the covers for this series really appeals to me. I think part of that is because they are showing most of the heroine on the cover, and I seem to gravitate toward covers like that rather ones that only show parts of the characters. Plus, they're just frigging cool, especially for urban fantasy! =)
