    Just to be sure. . . .I went and clicked "I want this book on Kindle!"  ;D  

    Great idea!  Just added it to the "I want this book on Kindle, come and klick" thread.

    Congrats, Boyd!

    Great news, Boyd!  I enjoyed The Adamas Blueprint.  Next indie book I read will be another of yours!

    That's some cover, Boyd.  Your name really pops.  But that's for the rest of the world.  We know who you are.  Everyone else will have to catch up to us.   :D

    Given that I'm a debut author, I don't know if a book tour is in the offing. We'll probably know more closer to the pub date. However, if I can't get to a particular city, I've already have an arrangement with signedpage.com where you can order personalized signed copies from their web site.

    "Debut author" - my ass  ....  You're FAMOUS 'round these parts, man!  You tell 'em you got folks all around the country just waitin' to meet you!

    And, that quote from James Rollins?  Super impressive!   ;)

    Debut author (as Lynn said) my ass.  You've got fans and a sales history and the PR people only have to build on that.

    I was wondering how much of the original cover would survive. The new one looks very nice.

    I am excited to see The Palmyra Impact in print. I read a sample on the Author Snippet Challenge thread and thought it sounded tasty.

    Congratulations, Boyd!  This is all so exciting to watch.

    But how many people will be confused by the following statements on the Amazon page for The Ark:
    "This title has not yet been released." 
    "4.6 out of 5 stars (44 customer reviews) "

    Not knowing the history behind this, people may question the authenticity of the reviews.  Amazon may need to change the way this information is presented in this new world of moving from an e-book to a traditional publisher.

    I LOVE The Ark's new cover, especially the 'subliminal' biohazard sign. Too cool!

    I liked that part too... I'm dumb like that, I'll buy anything with a bio-hazard symbol on the cover! ;D

    I also liked the effect on the text like it's disintegrating into dust particles... very cool! About the only thing I don't care for, is the color of his name. For some reason, the red letters don't look right to me... but now I'm just being nit-picky!
