for heaven’s sake  

Well. That book giveaway post certainly brought out the lurkers. Between mizkit.com, LJ, Twitter and FB, I got something on the order of 200 responses. That makes the dozen books I was going to give away seem sort of paltry. So I’m going to up it a little in proportion to the number of responders on each venue, for a total of 18–3 for mizkit.com, 6 for LJ, 6 for FB and 3 for Twitter.

The mizkit.com winners are: Becca, Jennifer, and Linda Henderson!

The LJ winners are: technocowboy, skeagsidhe, tersa, secret_gyoza, saetter and newjerseybadger!

Please email me your snailmail addresses to cemurphyauthor AT gmail DOT com!

I’ll post the FB and Twitter winners there, ’cause I don’t think there’s all that much crossover with the blog. :)

That’s about as far as the budget will stretch for mailing things out.

I will, however, give away another 12 copies of SPIRIT DANCES to random commenters on *this* post (where “this post” means the repeat that’ll get done here and at FB, where the highest # of responses came from, so there’ll probably be 6-9 given away through mizkit/lj and 3 at FB) who are willing to pay postage. It’s about $7 USD to mail one book, so winners would have to paypal me that, but if you wanna do that, then comment on this post!

Also, it is my civic duty to note that the 1920s style beaded party dress is half off at J Peterman. Of course, they only have two sizes left (4 and 6), but the velvet evening dress is also on sale, and I’m trying to figure out either where I would wear it or how to talk myself out of it… :)

I win! I win!

However, I will go ahead and PayPal you shipping, something I was gonna offer before I read later in your post. Because you're a friend, and I'm a friend. :)

(Also, I think it's time to post a reminder about your short story anthology offering for this year and the link to donate, because I finally feel like I can afford it but am too lazy to dig back in your posts to find the link :)
kitmizkit on February 17th, 2011 06:41 pm (UTC)
You win! You win! :)

Paypal address is open AT mizkit DOT com. :)

And yeah, I'll do the anthology thing next week...I want to get the first damned story written so I have a teaser for people, but I've been sick all goddamned month and haven't gotten jack shit done. >.

*hug* Yeah, I know. And having been sick most of January, I know how much merry hell it plays. I'm just now catching up on it, here three weeks later, and I don't have a toddler to wrangle. :)

If I thought that beaded dress would a) fit and b) look good, it might almost be worth the money. It's pretty spectacular.
silkiemom on February 17th, 2011 06:27 pm (UTC)
Would you stop tempting me with the velvet evening dress already? I know I'm too short for it to fit me but I keep wanting it anyway! :)

Also, no place to wear it. Although it might be interesting to wear it to photocopy at school...

Dangit! Must! Not! Think! About! Dress!
Rachierachie203 on February 17th, 2011 06:36 pm (UTC)
I want that beaded dress so ridiculously bad. My wallet is saved by the fact that it's not in my size.
Herefoxherefox on February 17th, 2011 06:42 pm (UTC)
Totally worth the price of postage if I won.
cainle_bean on February 17th, 2011 06:51 pm (UTC)
Congrats to the winners!

Wow... if only I had the size to wear dresses like that. *grin* Oh yeah and the place or event to wear one to.

I would be more than willing to pay postage on a copy of Spirit Dances.

Kinda out of it atm. Trying to figure out how to move this household and dogs and stuffs and my brain is on strike.
Mary Annepers1stence on February 17th, 2011 07:03 pm (UTC)
i'd be happy to pay for postage for a copy of SD....

also -- they seem to have added in more of the velvet dress in my size -- now i'm all super-tempted and stuff.....

The dresses looks gorgeous! If only I were the correct size and had a place to wear them...

I would be more than happy to pay the postage for Spirit Dances.

I will gladly pay for shipping a book across and ocean or two. Well, I think two would be a bit more expensive but still. Lol.
congrats to those that won the last round.
mikaela_lmikaela_l on February 17th, 2011 07:25 pm (UTC)
I'll gladly pay shipping! :)

... And I planned to ask you something, but I forgot. If it's important, I'll remember it later!
Ellen Millionellenmillion on February 17th, 2011 07:31 pm (UTC)
Linking to that site is so evil. I want it ALL. (Plus, sign me up for free book with paying shipping. )
Cyrano: My Little Friendcyranocyrano on February 17th, 2011 07:32 pm (UTC)
I have only read the first four books, so I cannot justify asking for the new one. (:
kitmizkit on February 17th, 2011 07:34 pm (UTC)
Ok. I'll send you #5 if you get chosen. :)
Cyrano: Ha Hacyranocyrano on February 17th, 2011 07:40 pm (UTC)
Hee! You are the best Kit ever! Even better than KITT!

Paying postage would be worth getting a book signed by the author.

I'm a longtime lurker of your LJ who enjoys your writing. I brought a couple of the Walker Paper books with me to Japan, so now you can say that Jo's been to Tokyo. :)

I would gladly pay for postage!! :-)

I, for one, cannot wait to fit reasonably into J Peterman's stuff. My husband, on the other hand, is less excited, which is unfair because HE is interested in some J. Peterman's stuff of his own. I wish that finely tailored clothing was more widely available than a handful of places on the internet.

Also, I have just recently read Demon Hunts (I've been saving it - I try to save each book as long as I can..) and it was truly fantastic. I love what each individual's personal space is like, but I gotta say, Gary is my favorite character - I would have loved to have a grampa like him! (As he never had kids, i never had a Grampa, hey look, we're a match made in heaven.)

If you are willing to do this again, then so am I.
Here is the obligatory comment. Velvet is a wonderful material; I have a corset made out of it that just screams, "Pet me!"

Sniff. I didn't win Powerball, either! Hmph.
sabrewolfx27sabrewolfx27 on February 18th, 2011 12:58 am (UTC)
Yeah, I'm a lurker. But I can't resist free books. 7 bucks in postage is definitely worth it!

Me, me! Pick me!
anthony_lionanthony_lion on February 18th, 2011 10:49 am (UTC)
One of those books REALLY ought to go to that postal worker...
kehazenkehazen on February 18th, 2011 08:10 pm (UTC)
I would definitely be willing to pay postage for a copy. :)
Amandatreehugginhippy on February 19th, 2011 02:54 am (UTC)
I'll pay postage :) :)

I LOVE glorious clothes like that, but almost everyone in my department is married and I have no more cousins with Bar/Bat Mitzvahs coming up, so I literally have NO fancy-dress occasions coming up!
dea_zinndea_zinn on February 19th, 2011 04:09 am (UTC)
Me, pretty please??
Douglaschiaspod on February 19th, 2011 10:31 am (UTC)
Yes, please. To the book, not the dress. Though I'd look smashing in the dress, I'm sure.
dea_zinndea_zinn on March 3rd, 2011 04:34 am (UTC)
Did I miss the giveaway (for the postage cost??)
