Boyd:

I pre-ordered and mine came overnight in Cyberspace. I'll download it this afternoon with my NY Times. And I must say, all other reading shall be put aside as you will not even make the TBR list, so long I have waited for this - having missed the original run. You give every Indie hope, having bubbled to the top and arrived. I'm so proud of you.

    I love the placement of this ad.  Congratulations! 

    I missed it first time around too, when it was a super-bargain.  With all due respect to the author, I think the higher current price is for the marketing and profits for publisher.  But I do hope that it sells bunches and makes big bucks for the author.

    I'm so glad this thread came back up since I was dreading the search for it.  ;D While it's not the kindle version since for some titles the Kindle for PC and I don't see eye to eye, I wanted to say what a wonderful and thrilling book the Ark is. I actually bought it via Doubleday Mystery Guild book club (which I thought was so cool) and am about halfway through it. Needless to say it will go to Mom's next eye appointment with me.

    Sierra, how cool! I had no idea it was being offered by a book club. I'm glad you're enjoying it.

    Thanks, Ed! And thanks to Ann for posting that interview.

    The book tour is going great. I'm in Houston now, with a signing at Murder By The Book tonight. Then I head to Phoenix for a signing at Poisoned Pen on Wednesday night with Christopher Farnsworth, author of Blood Oath (his book is not on Kindle, unfortunately). I've been to LA and Denver already, and I'll be doing another signing at Seattle Mystery Bookshop on June 4. In the meantime, I'm working on Tyler Locke 2, and I'll soon be copyediting Rogue Wave (nee The Palmyra Impact; I hope to have a cover to share soon). I'm having a blast!

    I was searching on "KindleBoards" and found this from May 12, I didn't see it mentioned in this thread, so thought I'd post it:

    JP, unfortunately my book tour budget didn't allow a trip to Chicago this time around, but I'll try to add it next year.

    I'd like to share some good news. So far, the reception for The Ark has been great! In the Wall Street Journal, it's listed as the number 8 hardcover mystery in the country.

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704717004575268550639498316.html

    And the Denver Post listed The Ark as the number 6 overall hardcover fiction bestseller in the city!

    I just had to post this!  I'm in a B&N in Springfield, VA and right in the front of the store, as part of their "recommended for Father's Day" display is a huge stack of The Ark!  Too cool!  I told my husband, "I know him!  He's on Kindleboards!"  So excited for you, Boyd!

    Thanks for the posting, Betsy.
    I never go into book stores anymore, so I would have missed it.
    I will run out and try to find the nearest one just so I can see the displays.

    Boyd's work is really something.
    It was a great pleasure to have already read his books.
    And now he might become famous.

    Neat.

    Just sayin.....

    Woo Hoo!  I may have to go into the B&N in Seven Corners tomorrow and do the same thing. . . .I'll tell the staff they should all read it so it can be someones "this week's recommendation" book.  ;D

    And I'm seriously considering going up to NY in mid July when he'll be doing a book signing. . . .I must coordinate with Richard. . . . . .

    Fingers crossed for a NYT bestseller rank. . . .and a book review in WaPo!

    No, the B&N reader, and not the latest--it's One Shot from 2005, no. 9 in the series, but I love the series...B&N is giving away a book a week thru Jun 7 to anyone using the Nook or a B&N app on a mobile device.

    If you go to NY, Ann, it may be time to repay the Harry Potter books....I'd love an autographed Ark...

    I'd love to see anyone who can make it to NYC. Should be a fun signing at Mysterious Bookshop on July 9. It's a HarperCollins event, but the bookstore invited me to crash it.

    One Shot is the first Lee Child I read, and it got me addicted. I think I read all the Reachers within a few months after that. I'm looking forward to 61 Hours, right after I finish the excellent vampire thriller Blood Oath by Christopher Farnsworth (we signed together at Poisoned Pen in Phoenix, which was very cool).

    Thanks for telling me about the book sightings. It's probably asking a bit much for the NYT list, but it's great to know the book is getting in front of people. And it must be connecting with some new readers. So far, the new Amazon reader reviews have been wonderful.

    I also just found out that The Ark will be published in China, Czech Republic, and France, which brings the total to 18 foreign markets!

    And I don't mean to tease (well, maybe a little  ;) ), but I just turned in the prologue for Tyler Locke 2 (which will go in the back of The Ark paperback), and my editor loved it. Can't wait until I can share the title with you!

    I am still a member of the Doublday Science Fiction Book Club, even though I mostly buy just ebooks now.
    And in this month's advertising package, there is an advertisment for .......wait for it.......


    The Ark.

    How about that.

    Just popping up all over.
