Baba Yaga's Daughter I have just gotten four* advanced reader’s copies for BABA YAGA’S DAUGHTER to give away. They’re softcover, uncorrected proofs, and actually if the book itself looked like this I would be quite delighted, but it’s going to be even more gorgeous and splendid, so don’t forget to pre-order your copy. :)

But at $40, it’s also going to be expensive. So here’s how this give-away is going to go:

Everybody reading this post, at whatever site you’re coming from (Facebook, Goodreads, Livejournal, mizkit.com, cemurphy.net, G+, Twitter) can put in their name once for a random draw. I’ll give two of the books away that way.

The other two I want to give to people who can genuinely not afford the $40 price tag on the book. Obviously this is on the honor system, but generally I find my readers to be extremely good people, so I’m going to trust you on this. Leave a comment or, if you prefer to keep the request private, send an email to cemurphyauthor@gmail.com, saying you’d like to be in for the Budget Giveaway. You don’t have to offer up details; it’s not going to be a Saddest Story Wins scenario, but rather another random draw from the second pool of names.

All I request–and this is of all four winners–is that you write a review of the book and either post it on your own blog & give me a link for it, or provide it to me so I can post it for you. I’ve never had a short story collection before, so I’d like to see it get some traction, and this is how you guys can help give it some.

So. That’s how this works. The contest ends sometime Monday, May 21st, so comment before then. Ready set go!

*technically five but I’M KEEPING ONE because i almost never ever ever get ARCs! also so i can do proofs on it. :)

Iiiiiiii need to figure out how to figure out if I pre-ordered or not. It went up so long ago (I think?) I don't recall now.

You are awesome. Thank you. :)

(I will also do as the other commenter suggested and check my email; hopefully I can find a keyword to search on that would turn it up, if it's there :)

OMG! I want that book! I was a Russian major in college... and I'm buying a house. So I will have to find a way to get it if I don't win since I know hubby won't let me spend that much on a book right now! How exciting!! -Sincerely, the Blonde Troll ;P

I'd love to enter to win an ARC. I keep meaning to pre-order this book. Subterranean Press always puts such lovely covers on things.

I have already ordered my copy. Thanks for the offer of an arc. I'm not sure if I should enter or let some other hopeful take my place... It's too late at night for decisions....
