Re: THE ARK and ROGUE WAVE now available on Kindle

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. :(

That's because I have two different publishers who have different ideas about how to market the books. Technically, Rogue Wave shouldn't even be for sale in the UK because Little, Brown has exclusive rights to that market. But the descriptions should be very similar, so I'm hoping readers realize it's the same book.

    I'm please to reveal the covers for my next Tyler Locke book, THE VAULT (US)/THE MIDAS CODE (UK)! THE VAULT will be released on July 5, and THE MIDAS CODE will be released on August 4. Though the covers are very different, the content of the books will be exactly the same. They will be available on Kindle in both the US and the UK, but you can't pre-order THE MIDAS CODE yet.

    Boyd,
    I 1 clicked the pre-order button.
    You are one of the few authors that I would pay "more" for.
    The others are equally split between ones like C.J. Cherryh and Terry Brooks and indie authors here at KB.
    Wishing you all the best.

    Just sayin......

    Still waiting patiently in the UK to preorder The Midas Code (The Vault) on Kindle and also to find out what the The Rogue Wave's going to be called over here and when it will be on Kindle.



    Well, maybe not patiently ....

    Thanks, Ann!

    Linjeakel, I'm sure The Midas Code will be available for pre-order sometime soon. Rogue Wave will be called The Tsunami Countdown in the UK and will be released in early 2012.

    The premises of your books really appeal to me, and I've downloaded samples of the two that are currently available. I see that others say that they have downloaded all 3, but I only see The Ark and Rogue Wave (which especially appeals to me because I'm fascinated by the ocean and huge waves) as being currently available. Am I missing one or are the others referring to having pre-ordered The Vault?  For the record, I'll read the samples this afternoon, and am nearly 100% certain that I'll be purchasing the books today. Thanks for reminding us of your books. To be honest, I've been reading posts by you, and was aware of your books, but simply forgot download samples or buy them.

    I know, Linjeakel. But at least it's before December, 2012, in case those Mayans were right. ;)

    Thanks, Cindy! I believe those comments about downloading all three were from when I had self-published my books on Kindle in 2009. The first two are Rogue Wave and The Ark, which are available now. The third, The Catalyst (formerly The Adamas Blueprint), will be available this year on November 29.

    Thanks, Boyd. That's the conclusion that I had drawn. I'm hurrying through trying to clean up my kitchen after Sunday dinner, and then your samples are waiting to be read. Yay!

    I just wanted to let everyone know that the second book in the Tyler Locke series, THE VAULT, comes out tomorrow, July 5. For everyone who was so supportive early in my career and read my first three books when they were self-published, this is the first new book in over two years. I hope this new adventure is worth the wait.

    In THE ARK former combat engineer Tyler Locke took on a biblical mystery as he searched for Noah's Ark to prevent the end of the world. In THE VAULT Tyler tackles Greek mythology. When his father is kidnapped by a ruthless criminal, Tyler is blackmailed into a desperate quest for the legendary lost riches of King Midas. Using clues left by brilliant Greek inventor Archimedes, Tyler and classical languages expert Stacy Benedict must decipher the true purpose of a 2,000-year-old artifact called the Antikythera mechanism, an ancient device that may reveal the secret of the Midas touch.

    The Midas Code (The Vault) is available for pre-order in the UK to be released in August - but not on Kindle. Does this mean the Kindle version won't be out in August or just we can't pre-order it?


    Edit: Likewise for Tsunami Countdown (Rogue Wave). The paper version is available for pre-order for March 2012, but no mention of a Kindle version.

    There will definitely be a UK Kindle version in August. I'll check with my publisher there to find out why it's not available for pre-order yet.

    That's a good idea. I'll have my publisher look into it.

    Well as I mentioned a few posts back, I pre-ordered.
    So whoopie, I should get a download tomorrow.

    Like Ed, I will start asking for the next book, before I even start this one, Boyd.

    My copy downloaded, just like it is supposed to do.
    So I will now push The Vault to the front of the list and start it today.
    Only Boyd Morrison, Mike Hicks and Jeff Hepple get immediate reading from me.
    As much as I like other authors, Boyd's work is worth waiting for.
