Win A Signed Copy of Blue Diablo

A couple of weeks ago, the fabulously talented Ann Aguirre was in town for a book signing, and I got two copies of Blue Diablo, both signed, one for me and one of you!

Now, I'm sure you've heard the "buzz" around this book, and it's totally deserved. I gobbled it up in two helpings, half on a plane on the way to Philadelphia and half on the way back.

I'm the first to admit that I'm not usually a big fan of the urban fantasy genre, but because I loved the Sirantha Jax books so much (space opera is up my alley--hello, Star Trek fan!), it was a foregone conclusion that I had to give Blue Diablo a chance. And I am not sorry I did. Every element of this book is exquisite, from the way the setting weaves its way into scenes as if the places were characters themselves to the crackling tension between Corine and Chance. I loved this book and didn't want it to be over!

So, you want a copy? All right, fair enough. Here's the contest. In the comments, give me your best reason for why you haven't yet bought Blue Diablo. On Friday, I'll pick the best, most creative, reason, and award my spare signed copy to that commenter.

Think hard. Your reason's gotta be a good one!

OK my reason for not purchasing this book yet is one of economic crisis..... I am broke. Enough said? Taxes due, massive hydro and gas bill due, credit cards due and too many other little envelopes wanting cash and wanting it now.... and 4 boys who suck any remaining pennies from my curled up fist.!!On top of that my hours have been cut from 25 to 12 because my boss decided to hold on to the Christmas staff this year even though he wants to fire them but now it is too late...... So if you can feel some love Please pick me!!!

I live in the middle of nowhere, and it takes me two hours to get to a decent bookstore. Oh sure, I could buy online, but then I'd have to pay shipping, and I'm almost obsessive about not paying more for something than I absolutely have to. Trapped by my own stingyness is the only excuse I have.

My grandpa Leonardo's will forbids me from buying "trashy novels". If I can refrain from purchasing any books other than right-wing nut job propaganda or the Bible, I will inherit $20 million. Hey, it's all about the money, baby.

PS - He didn't say I couldn't borrow it from the library, which is what I'll do if I don't win this contest.

Way past you girl. I already bought BD when it first arrived. Next up is to drop some cash for the S.Jax series. These books are too darned good, to sit around and wait for an autographed copy. When I'm jonesin for an AA fix, time waits for no one.

AA rocks! or "Ella es mejor"!
