*sheepish* You kinda have to link to the book.

Related to that last bullet point under basics, remember that not only do some libraries have it in their systems (there are 14 copies in the Minuteman system, for example), but requesting and checking it out will often increase the chances of other libraries ordering it (in a large system like Minuteman, for example, they'd rather have a copy at your local branch than keep paying to deliver ILL copies), meaning more copies available.

Oh, huzzah! I have nabbed a copy for my Kindle and cannot wait to start reading it. I just read a bit of the excerpt that's online, and recognized part of it as a story that one of my best friends lent to me on beautiful creamy paper sealed with sealing wax -- I am so happy to have more, now.

Does posting about it yesterday count?


I'm halfway through. I'm planning a special post for my book review series just for Deathless.

Oh yay! I hope you are liking it. and yeah, that counts.

Hee! I am hoping I was the first to post on it on FB--put it up last night past the midnight hour.
I am so excited for this book--MAILMAN WHERE R U?!?!?! DON'T SCREW THIS UP FOR ME!


And OMG icon LOVE!

Congrats, Cat. This one is gonna be great and I am so so glad it's out and that you did it!!

Tweeted, LJed, FBed. Love spread around.

Congratulations! I can't wait to read it, and I'll definitely try to make it to one of the Philadelphia area events next week!

Have twitterated here, and will likely continue to make excited squeaking noises on twitter throughout the day, as I just bought the ebook and intend to start reading as soon as I am done with my classes for the day.

\o/ yay Deathless!

I linked to the trailer and the amazon page on my tumblr :)

I am so excited that Deathless is out now!

Posted to Facebook and tweeted: http://twitter.com/ian_atrus/status/52746231486758912

I plan on writing a review, but it'll be at least another week before Amazon UK ships it.


I plan to buy it for myself for my birthday, which is also today!

So I posted a link to the trailer, excerpt, and book. Evidence is here.

I am always so excited to read your work. When I know something new awaits, I get a warm-blanket-in-the-sunshine feeling. So thank you! And happy Deathless day!

Dutifully retweeted!

I tweeted today here:

When I get my copy in the mail, I will try to get a picture of it with my wall of Soviet Nostalgia and do a proper write up on my LJ. I've had that Young Pioneer poster for fourteen years now - it belonged to my strange high school economics teacher who received it from some Soviet exchange students. I so want that scarf and ruble! I'd have to find some way to incorporate them into my awesome wall...

Ljed, FBed and Tweeted! (My copy is currently winging its way towards me and I wish it would wing a bit faster:/)

"a Young Pioneer's scarf (a major object from the book)"

Ah, now I know I'm going to cry! (I figured it was coming, but will have it.)

I used to have one that a boy my age gave me when I was in Russia as a youth ambassador and my father's wife threw it away (with all of my other things when I was at my MA program. Bad surprise. I treasured that scarf like crazy and still wish I had it, but this is kind of a rotten story on a great day.)

Anyway, congratulations, bravo and hurray for you and for Deathless</b>! Can't wait!

Oh yes and if all goes well we shall see you in PA!

And how lucky for me that my book budget for the month hasn't been completely spent - or I'd have to wait until Friday to hit the local bookstore :)

I totally linked you on LJ (because, yes, Deathless sounds totally awesome (and I don't have disposable income right now), but also because zowie: That is one awesome set of prizes! :-D)


Have fun at the Fabulous Party, and YAY for your Fabulous Book being out at last! Huzzah! :-D

I tweeted it & am tumblring it. I plan on buying a copy as bathroom reading (the only time I can justify reading for fun!). Man, I am wicked excited -- I haven't been this excited about a book in ages.


So looking forward to reading the book, and have duly pimped it on Tumblr, black hole that it is. ( http://stiltonandpear.tumblr.com/post/4185975136/amazon-com-deathless-9780765326300-catherynne-m )

Linked to it on my LJ and on my DW.

ZOMG! I ordered my e-copy, and will be reading it shortly! I cannot wait.

I tweeted the book on twitter today: http://twitter.com/#!/scarletandjade

And I also facebooked it: https://www.facebook.com/scarletandjade

Congratulations on your new bouncing book baby! Hope you have a good launch, and enjoy the party!

I preordered Deathless about a month and a half ago, I'm so excited to get it!

I posted promotions on my LJ and my tumblr, hope that counts :D



And my facebook, but it's set to private, sooo... only the people I'm friends with can see it XP
