Green Amazon ] will be out in a few months. So it's time for another ARC giveaway contest. As usual, this will be a two-stage process. I'll have people post entries here for a few days, then I'll make a voting poll.

This time, your job is to nominate someone else to receive an ARC of Green, and tell us why. Be as silly or fun or funny if you want, but no gratuitous cruelty or snark. So nominate your favorite blogger or commenter or LJ-BFF right here.

matociquala, because she clearly doesn't have enough to read already (also, I want to see what her highly-spicy brains would have to say about it)

Also-also, Presumptuous Cat could offer secondary remarks. It's like two ARCs for one!

I nominate Carolyn kadath

You tuckerized her into one of your novels...she introduced me to your work, and her reviews of books are funny, pointed and truthful.

I nominate serge_lj because he gave me two mousepads that had been touched by the hand of Harlan Ellison.

camillealexa, just because there has to be something out there that will illustrate to her the value of "Green" over blue...

I nominate connerybeagle because he's really cute and deserves a nice read/break from his hard day.

(same goes for his Mom too, who just happens to be my SO)

I nominate deedop, as the person I know who absolutely most needs a random act of kindness just now, which act will hopefully kickstart a cascade of further much-needed positive karma.

WheatlandPress because she needs to read something enjoyable that she doesn't *have* to read! And Green might be exactly what she needs, after the winter you've had up there.

I nominate selfavowedgeek because southern friend grits needs some northwest Green. And besides, he's father to two up-and-coming "Jay Lake Jay Lake" fans! An ARC of Green would put them over the edge into lifelong book-buying devotees!

ericreynolds, because I don't believe he's read enough of your work, and doesn't quite realize who he's dealing with.
