Purchase Excuse Ten

Ten Excuses to Make if You're Caught Buying My Next Novel

1. I accidentally sneezed on it and I don't want to spread my germs to another unsuspecting customer.

2. I just like looking at the pretty covers.

3. I saw Scott McClellan holding a copy while we were standing in the unemployment line last week.

4. If I buy two I get one free, and this is the third one I picked up, so technically, I'm not buying it.

5. I'm dyslexic; I thought it was Paula Deen's new cookbook Fry It, Y'all.

6. My religious zealot group is having a bonfire tonight and I couldn't find a copy of The Da Vinci Code.

7. Oh, geez, how embarrassing. I really meant to get that other Twilight novel.

8. She sent me a free signed book once and I don't want to owe her.

9. The subliminals she embedded in the online excerpt must be making me do this.

10. We ran out of maple mulch for the garden and it's kind of the same color.


  1. 11. I you don't tell, they won't you are buying it either :)

  2. Does this mean Twilight Fall is out today? *plots to escape to a mass market paperback outlet before night falls*

    Personally I like this one - If you won't tell I will!

    Alas, no. TF won't be hitting the shelves for another three weeks -- the official release is July 2nd, I think.

    You all should be prepared, though. :)

  5. I am ready, I just went out and picked up Evermore finally and am looking foward to reading them in order.

  6. Hah. You wouldn't believe how many times I've pulled that "this is the free book" sthick on myself.

  7. >>Fry It, Y'all.


    OMG! Ok how long did it take you to come up with that one?

    Hahaha! They're all gems.

  9. I am so ready! Do you want pictures of people with book in hand?

  10. Aww, I don't need excuses *g* On the other hand, can't wait! July is still too far away. :( (for me, it will be even longer *cries*)

  11. Nope, the other Twilight novel is mine, and it is still in draft form, so I know your version is the one I'm anxiously awaiting. I don't need purchase excuses. I buy what I darn well please. And, on your bookshelf, it would be Twilight Fall, Omega Games, and Stay the Night -- and whatever else I can track down as yours.

    11. This Twilight book? No, I didn't purchase it. Someone else signed it and sent it to me with a really cool bookmark.

    Thanks, btw;)
