    Boyd, our own Maureen Miller has a book out entitled Rogue Wave published 3/1/09.  I don't know if you can have the exact same title or not, but I just thought I'd give you a heads up on that.

    Keep up posted.  Sounds like it's getting better and better.

    Thanks, Gertie. As you can see, it's very difficult to come up with unique titles. Titles can't be copyrighted, so you see the same titles all the time. I remember that last year, in the same month, both Iris Johansen and Robert Liparulo had books come out with the title DEADLOCK. In fact, if you search for "deadlock" on Amazon, you'll find at least six different titles with that name.

    That said, although both of our books take place in Hawaii, it sounds like the plots are very different. Besides, there are three other books called Rogue Wave, so we're all in the same boat <groan>.

    Yes, I liked the old titles, too.

    Thanks, Askenase! I'm happy to start a new thread, but I'm not clear how it would help. Got any suggestions for what to call it?

    Yes, my friends in Dallas weren't happy about that, either, but the resources are limited for this debut (sort of) author.  :'(

    But take a roadtrip to Houston, and we'll have a party there!

    Our rule here is to not start new threads for books that have existing threads, so Boyd's playing by the rules (Thanks, Boyd.)

    Note that, in addition to subscribing to be notified (when you post to a thread, below the box, you will have additonal options; one is to be  notified via email of new replies to the thread), you can always bookmark a thread if you want to go back to it often.

    And you're right, Boyd has a ton of followers here!

    Boyd, congratulations on all your success and thanks for remembering KindleBoards!

    While I know that to S&S you are a "new" author, we know you are an accomplished, seasoned one.
    They will want to treat the three existing books as brand new material.

    But we are waiting for new work (to us) from you.
    Any idea when they will let you get through with the promo for the first three and produce the next Tyler book?

    I'm so glad everyone is eager for the next one. Tyler Locke 2 is due to come out next summer. I've got ideas for the next five Tyler Locke adventures, so I'll keep writing them as long as people keep reading them.   :)

    Are these new books going to be published by S&S?
    Or indie?

    Boyd - just signed up for an e-mail reminder of your 2nd SoCal signing at the Encino B&N... I will most likely be working that night, but if there's any way I can make it, I will!

    Also picked up Black Rain for only $4 just now, thanks for the recommendation!

    Hey, you're 'official' now! You're listed at Fantastic Fiction! :D

    http://www.fantasticfiction.co.uk/m/boyd-morrison/

    I've rarely found an indie author that is listed there...but then again, you're not really indie anymore with The Ark and the rest of the book deal! No idea how it's decided what/when to list there, though.

    Yay Boyd!  I want to echo Gertie that the original titles are fine. . . .I don't see how three words isn't short enough.  Geesh!

    If you want to edit the title of the ORIGINAL post in this thread, it will show differently in the list but won't start a new thread.   You do that by going to the original post, clicking modify, and then changing the subject.  Then you can add new info in a new post at the end of the thread.  That'll draw attention to the thread for folks that don't just read everything :D

    Looking forward to the new book too!

    Boyd, I didn't realize you were going straight to hardcover. That is truly awesome. 

    Good luck with the book signings.

    Thanks for the tip, Ann.

    Regarding the titles, my feeling is that no matter what they're called, at least the content of the books is the same. That's what I have control over, so that's what I focus on. The title is merely the enticement to get someone to pick up the book, so if Rogue Wave does that as well as The Palmyra Impact, then I'm happy with it. I did veto some other title ideas that just didn't work.

    Gertie, in addition to hardcover, The Ark is also coming out in large print format and as an audio book. The audio narrator is a four-time Tony-award-winning Broadway actor, and his name is--get this--Boyd Gaines. What are the odds?

    Steph, I'm not familiar with Fantastic Fiction, but it must be big over in the UK.

    I have to admit, that with the Hawaii tsunami warnings yesterday, I couldn't help but think of The Palmyra Impact....that, and I sure hope there aren't any such warnings when I'm there in two weeks! :D

    Oh, and as Gertie said, Fantastic Fiction is used a lot around here to check the order of series by authors, as well as just seeing a listing of all books by authors. It's a good site.

    Some of you have asked how to get a signed copy of THE ARK if I'm not touring in a city near you. I've set up a system with a local proprietor here in Seattle called The Signed Page where you can order personalized, signed copies on the Web. It's great because the store is near me, and they take care of all the shipping to make sure the book arrives intact. It's a pretty slick setup.

    I just found out from Simon and Schuster that The Ark will be available on Kindle on May 11! It's not available for pre-order yet, but I'm told it will be available at least two weeks before the book is released. No word yet on Kindle pricing. I know that's been a big issue lately, but unfortunately those decisions are made at a high level in S&S, way over my head.
