    Well, Boyd - when the books are out I will pay for an autographed copy.
    And I want you to inscribe it :

    "To Ed
    Those who wait are lost
    Boyd"

    I'd be delighted to, Ed!

    I found a fantastic local web site here in Seattle called The Signed Page, and you'll be able to order personalized signed copies of The Ark from their web site. It works great because it's near my house, and whenever they get orders, I can just head on down and sign, and they take care of the shipping. I'll let you know when the listing is up on their site.

    By the way, the title in the UK market is The Noah's Ark Quest, and it's already listed on the Amazon.co.uk site! Though the titles are different for the US and UK markets, the manuscripts are identical.

    ok I loved the Ark - and  I started The Palmyra Impact this afternoon and just finished it about 6 minutes ago  - can I just say  OMG - I swear my Blood Pressure rose just reading it - It was beyond fantastic.  Who do you have pictured for the characters when it is made into a movie - because it will be made into a movie for sure.  When it comes out in print I will be telling all my friends they HAVE to read it.

    Thanks, Rho! Kai would be a hard character to cast, so I don't know who would fit the role. I think Nathan Fillion would be great as Brad (he'd also make an awesome Tyler Locke). Eva Mendes could play Teresa, and I could see several different actresses as Rachel. My film rights agent thinks The Palmyra Impact would make a good mini-series, so that might be an option if I get a publishing deal for it.

    Boyd, when the book comes out will you be doing a local book signing in our area somewhere?

    First off Nathan Fillion would be a great Brad -- Nathan Fillion mmmmm (yes I am 56 and I have white hair but Nathan Fillion is HOT! - that's not creepy is it?)  and a mini-series - oh yeah - draw the suspense out longer.  How about Dean Cain as Kai

    Actually, you are all already linked to Kevin Bacon! My Bacon number is 3. I was in the play Noises Off with Rod Pilloud, who was in the movie The Prodigal with Jim Smith, who was in Mystic River with Kevin Bacon.

    Ellen, I don't know what my book signing plan is, but I'm in NYC this week to meet with Simon and Schuster, so maybe I'll know more soon. I'll let you know when I have more info.

    Stargazer, I saw the horrible news about the tsunami in American Samoa. Unfortunately, tsunamis will continue to be a threat, and the PTWC director said my story, while unlikely to happen soon, is not out of the realm of possibility. You'll notice in the story about the Samoan tsunami that they were actually hit by four waves, the number of waves to hit Honolulu in my novel.

    But this would put us even closer!  :D

    Actually, I was in a movie once with Rosanna Arquette, Willem Dafoe, Brad Johnson and Danny Glover . . . so I'm sure there's a connection to Kevin Bacon there somehow too!  (Flight of the Intruder, released in 1991, filmed partially on location on the Island of Kaua'i while we were stationed there.  Anyone who wanted to be an extra could be!)

    Boyd, I thought of your book as soon as I read the paper today. I have to say, if nothing else I certainly have a far better understanding of tsunamis now. My prayers are with those in the region hit by the tsunamis.

    Please do post when you know where you will be headed. I'll bet I'm not the only one interested in buying a book and having you sign it!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm excited to announce that The Palmyra Impact and The Adamas Blueprint will be published by Simon and Schuster! Both books will be published in the US as mass market paperback originals by the Pocket Books imprint sometime in late 2010/early 2011. FYI, the titles of the books may change.  Were still negotiating foreign rights. Ill let you know when I have more information. So now I essentially have a four-book deal with Simon and Schuster! Thanks to everyone who has read the books and were so supportive.

    I will be at the Bouchercon writers conference in Indianapolis this Thursday through Sunday, so if anyone is there, please come find me. I'll be on an author panel on Thursday afternoon at 1:30PM titled "The Long and Winding Road to Publication."

    The Ark is now listed on Amazon! It only lists the hardcover and audio versions, but my editor assures me that there will be a Kindle version as well.

    Cheers,
    Boyd

    Wow, outstanding!  I also hope they don't change the titles.  I think they're great for thrillers, short and cryptic.
