Damn, speed it up. And BTW, my day was made when I saw that one of us broke out of the pack and is making the dream come true.

    Despite requests from a few major media outlets recently, my publisher is going to hold off trying to schedule any major press until next year (otherwise people get understandably frustrated that they can't find my books after they read the article). However, I did stop by and chat a few weeks ago with a nice guy named Mark Jeffrey who interviews authors about their self-publishing experiences. You can find the video interview at http://bibliotechshow.com/2009/08/19/bibliotech-episode-10-author-boyd-morrison/. In the interview, I gave a well-deserved shout-out to my Kindleboards supporters.

    What a great interview!  You are a good speaker (I suppose being an actor helped a bit...), especially since you were answering questions for 30 minutes.

    The KB shoutout is at minute 14, for those who don't want to watch the whole thing, but I recommend checking it out.

    I just can't wait for The Ark to be published.  One more reason to look forward to the spring!

    Add me to the list of bummed out people who just found this thread and subsequently are too late to get the books! :(

    Can't wait until your books become available for the Kindle again Mr. Morrison... they look like they will be right up my alley. All of your inspirations are authors that I have read and loved.

    Best of luck and continued success!!!

    I can't wait to see the movie either! As long as I get a role in it.  ;)

    I'm proud to announce that The Ark has received three blurbs from NY Times bestselling authors to add to the ones from James Rollins, Jon Land, and Chris Kuzneski.  Here they are:

    "Douglas Preston, NY Times bestselling author of CEMETERY DANCE and THE MONSTER OF FLORENCE -- THE ARK by Boyd Morrison skillfully entwines Biblical history, archaeology and religious fanaticism with high technology to create a riveting adventure of high-stakes terror and international intrigue. Wow. This is one fine heart-stopping thriller."
     
    "Steve Berry, NY Times bestselling author of THE CHARLEMAGNE PURSUIT and THE PARIS VENDETTA -- Mach-speed mayhem. THE ARK crackles with tension and imagination from the first page to the last. Just the right blend of menace and normality. Boyd Morrison is a writer to watch."
     
    "Gayle Lynds, NY Times bestselling author of THE BOOK OF SPIES and THE LAST SPYMASTER -- Taut and endlessly exciting, The Ark by Boyd Morrison is a thrill-a-minute ride across time and continents in search of one of the worlds most fascinating mysteries Noahs lost Ark. Equally fascinating are the maverick engineer and female archeologist who must uncover the hidden plans of the diabolical man who has the key. From memorable characters to insider information, youll love this adventure of a lifetime."

    I'm not even an author & I'm excited for you Boyd. Great job, wonderful books, and glad the "biggies" are taking note more and more.

    Thanks, everyone! It really is hard to believe how fast everything has happened. In fact, I'm heading to NYC next week for an agents and editors meeting at Simon and Schuster. How cool is that to say?

    I just got the first look at my book cover, and it's really cool! I'll share it with you as soon as it's finalized.

    I also got word that I will be serving on my very first author's panel session at Bouchercon in Indianapolis on October 15. It's called The Long and Winding Road to Publication, and the other authors appearing with me will be Seth Harwood, Daryl Wood Gerber, and Carolyn Wall, with Debi Watson moderating. If any Kindleboard members are planning to attend, I'd love to meet you in person!

    If muggin doesn't work the resort to outright murder -- the books are that good!  ;D

    Well I have to say I'm thrilled to see the recognition that is occurring for your writing skills, and I am also thrilled that I purchased your books for my Kindle while they were still available! I read The Palmyra Impact back in May (coincidentally over the Memorial Day weekend which worked well given the book's setting) and thought it was terrific. I just started The Adamas Blueprint yesterday; I'm 80% through it so far and it is terrific as well. Both have been thrillers in the best sense of the word. I am really looking forward to reading more and I am glad to have another name on my list of authors that I love to read!

    Boyd,

    Just got done reading The Palmyra Impact, and intend to post a review on my site shortly.  All I can say is, it's completely unfair that one person should be so ridiculously talented as a writer.  ;D I'm looking forward to reading the rest of your works.

    Best,
