    I tried to pick all-different moments, and I have to say, guys, this was the best contest I’ve ever run. You all remminded me of moments I loved in the books, and many of you chose moments I’d totally forgotten or never expected to be highlighted as favourites. Thank you all so much for participating. This was a good way to wrap up the series, for me.

    Winners, please email your mailing address to cemurphyauthor at gmail dot com with the subject line SHAMAN Winner!

    Tell me your favourite Walker Papers moment for a chance to win a copy of SHAMAN RISES!

    Bonus points for using 25 words or less, since that’s what the poor bastards on Twitter are limited to. There will, obviously, be spoilers in the comments. :)

    still adapting

    I can’t quite get used to clicking the ‘home’ button on my browser and having mizkit.com actually come back up again. It makes me happy every time, which is good, because for the first month it was down I couldn’t look at the ad farm without spasming with rage.

    I amused myself this afternoon while getting the MOUNTAIN ECHOES give-aways packed up. Hopefully I will have also amused the recipients, when it comes to that. :)

    Slightly longer than intended “Mansfield Park” picoreview behind the cut, for mild spoilers.

    1 jillion things to do

    I am considering dying my hair. I know, I know, the excitement! The trouble is to do it properly today would take two go-rounds, and I don’t know if I feel like being that thorough. :)

    Things that must get done today:
    – email the writers’ centre
    rattle with impatience for Amazon & BN to get ORIGINS online
    notify BYD ARC winners that they won:

    The winners of the BABA YAGA’S DAUGHTER ARC give-away are as follows:

    Mylia Scribe-Jones
    Elise Julene Tuck
    B. Ross

    If all of you will contact me with your snail mail addresses, I will get those books in the mail to you. Remember, your part of this bargain is to write a review of the collected stories and either post it on your own blog and give me the link to it, or provide me with a review to post here! :)

    email padraig
    do dishes
    take out the upstairs rubbish
    make a massage appt
    attempt to make a hair appt
    – whatever else comes to mind that seems important :)
    – like the BYD page proofs

    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. :)
