There was a formatting problem? Do you know if CS will give us a replacement copy with no issues?

I own it--got it the first day--but have yet to open it.

The formatting issue was the that first letter of each chapter was indented improperly. It's more of a nuisance than anything else. If that doesn't bother you, you don't need a replacement. I don't know how customer service at Amazon is dealing with it if you ask for a replacement.

    I got an e-mail from Amazon about an 'update' available; it had the usual disclaimer that you'd lose any highlights or notes if you get the new version.  I was a bit surprised to get the e-mail as the copy I'd bought it was a gift to my son.  Anyway, I said, yes, I want the updated copy, but, of course, it'll go to him. . . . .I'll check with him when he wakes up. :)


    Edit:  My mistake -- the Rogue Wave I got the update notice for is by Maureen Miller. . . . .I'll check with my son and see if he got one for your book.

    Ann, one of my readers told me they got a note from Amazon that they could get a free update for my Rogue Wave, so it looks like that's how they're handling it. It's nice to know that's an option for readers.

    I got the same email and got the update. I had it within two hours. No trouble at all.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that price of THE ARK has dropped to $7.99 on Kindle because the paperback will be released tomorrow.

    Watched "Hawai'i five-O" on Sunday (well, we Tivo'd it and I watched it last night) -- major plot device was anomalies in the tsunami warning data. . . .I thought of you. :)

    When can we expect another book featuring Locke and company?

    I'll have to check out that episode of Hawaii Five-O online. Sounds cool.

    I just turned in THE VAULT on Monday. It's coming out on July 5, and the paperback of THE ARK features the prologue of THE VAULT. Here's a quick teaser:

    In THE VAULT, former combat engineer Tyler Locke and linguistics expert Stacy Benedict are blackmailed into a frantic search for the fabled treasure of King Midas using a cryptic device created by antiquity's greatest engineer, Archimedes.

    I just finished reading the Ark (though my Kindle version is called The Noah's Ark Quest) and I thoroughly enjoyed it - I think it would make a great movie! I've never read any of your books before so now I'm busy searching out the others - Rogue Wave is definitely going on my Wish List. Is The Vault going to be on Kindle?

    Thanks for a great read.  ;D

    You're welcome! Yes, The Vault will definitely be on Kindle.

    I've read both "The Ark" and "Rogue Wave" and really enjoyed both.

    I'm currently reading Rogue Wave (although I keep thinking of it as That Impact Book). Really enjoying it so far. I just read the bit that you put in a snippet post over a year ago that first got me interested in this story. It's where Brad realizes how big the wave is going to be. In context, that scene is even more powerful. Keep it up!

    I'm so happy everyone's enjoying the books. I thought I'd share some some great blurbs I recently received for The Vault, which comes out July 5.

    I never pre-order books for over 9.99 and rarely at 9.99 but in this case I am doing it.  I so enjoyed your other books this is a no brainer.  I bought them all before you got your publishing deal and feel the value of those books for the money I spent more than makes up that 2.00 difference.  I am sure I will love it.

    Thanks, Dot and Ann! I just turned in the final copyedits on The Vault today, and I'm very happy with it. I think it will be a fun follow-up to The Ark.

    If anyone is planning to attend the RT Booklovers Convention in Los Angeles April 6-10, I'll be handing out a limited number of advanced copies of The Vault. Hope to see you there!

    Just 23 short months ago, I bought The Ark.  This week I pulled it from the stacks (you can have stacks on a Kindle) and read it.  And now I am very tired.  I could not put the book down.  It is what an action adventure book should be.  Super good good guys and deliciously bad bad guys, narrow escapes, cool technology and...and... and the list is too long for my patience to write the whole thing.  You are probably tired of comparisons to Clive Cussler but here's another.  Reading The Ark reminded me of why I liked Clive Cussler books so well but don't anymore.   The Ark follows the action adventure formula but makes it fresh and fun (like Cussler used to, sorry).  I've already bought Rogue Wave.  It's in the stacks right now but I guarantee it will not take me 23 months to start reading it.

    Everyone seems to enjoying Rogue Wave and I've been waiting (not so) patiently for the Kindle version to become available in the UK, but no luck yet - nor can I find an option to pre-order The Vault for Kindle.  >:(

    Are we going to get these two books on Kindle in the UK?

    Thanks, Imalibs! I grew up a huge Cussler fan, so that's a great compliment.

    Linjeakel, The Vault and Rogue Wave will be coming out for the Kindle later this year in the UK under different titles than in the US because I'm published by Little, Brown in the UK and Simon and Schuster in the US. The Vault will be called The Midas Code, and Rogue Wave's new title hasn't been announced yet. In both cases, the content of the books will be identical to the US version.

    Thank you - I'll look out for them! How odd that the titles will change - the paperback version of Rogue Wave is available in the UK under that name. I hope people who have that don't buy the Kindle version thinking it's a different book. :(
