    Wow, I am already enjoying this.
    I normally don't like to remark until I am finished.
    But this is GOOD.

    Just sayin......

    And yet another gem.  As someone with not much disposable income, I appreciate the great deals kindle offers.  The Vault has been bookmarked.

    I finished it on Monday night.
    Great read...every comment I want to make would spoil it for someone.

    I have one word for you Boyd....

    More.

    Thanks, Geoff! More are definitely on the way because I signed a new deal with Little, Brown UK for books 3 and 4 in the Tyler Locke series. I'm positive they'll make their way to the US, too.

    Ann, if you couldn't tell, I love Mythbusters.  ;)

    I hope you enjoy it, Dablab, JP, Gregory, and Ed!

    I finished it this past weekend too. . . . .posted on my FB page -- solid 5 stars. . . . . . .

    And I see The Adamas Blueprint is being re-released in the fall as The Catalyst, currently available for pre-order at $5.99 -- any big changes from the original version?

    What's next?

    1) I'm so jealous.  :P

    2) I've finally been able to pre-order The Vault (called The Midas Code here in the UK) but it's not out till August 4th.  :'(

    3) There's no sign of the The Rogue Wave (The Tsunami Countdown here) at all. Next year for that one I believe.  :o

    4) I don't know anything about The Catalyst - are we getting that one in UK?

    5) I do wish the various publishers would agree on the titles for these books!   ???

    Thanks, Ann! Glad you loved it. I've updated The Catalyst to make the plot fit with contemporary technology. When I wrote it back in '95, we didn't have Facebook, Google, or texting. Even cell phones were not very common. Adding those elements changed how Kevin and Erica approach their predicament, but the overall storyline is basically the same. Now I'm on to Tyler Locke 3.

    Lin, I'm told The Tsunami Countdown will come out in the UK in March 2012, but I haven't seen the exact date yet. You'll also be getting The Catalyst, but I don't the date or UK title. It's difficult to get two different publishers from two different countries to agree on a single title that works for both markets. The content inside the book, however, is exactly the same.

    A great read, Boyd!  Couldn't put it down until it was done. (Loved the Ferrari scenes by the way, as a Ferrari enthusiast. ;D)

    Looking forward to more Tyler Locke!

    Yay! It's finally released in the UK - it was waiting for me when I switched on my Kindle this morning.  ;D

    I deliberately didn't start a new book yesterday as I knew it would be coming. Not much time for reading today but I'm already hooked. I may be unavailable for the next few days .......  ::)  :o

    Oh lucky you.
    I almost wish I had not been able to read it already so that I could read it for the first time again.
    Does that make sense?

    Boyd, The Vault was fantastic (as I was sure it would be)!  I'm so glad more Tyler Locke is on the way - WRITE FASTER!

    Finally got to where I could start it night before last -- already 1/4 way through.  Any chance you can have the the next one out by .... say sunday, monday at the latest?

    #%[email protected]#^@#^  means I guess I'll have to wait on it!!!  :(

    Boyd -- good to see that you are improving!!  ;)
    The first I read of yours quite a while ago was fantastic -- wasn't sure it could get any better -- been proved wrong again.  Great Job!!

    I was going to say it would make a great movie but on second thoughts I don't think they could do it justice. Loved it!  ;D

    Thanks, everyone! I'm so honored that you've all come along for the ride with me since I first self-published over two years ago.

    Just wanted to pop in and say hi. I've been chained to my computer for the last four months working on the next Tyler Locke book called THE TRIGGER, and I finally turned in the first draft to my editor yesterday. Phew!

    I'm also excited that my thriller THE CATALYST is being released today. It was the third of the books I self-published (it was previously called THE ADAMAS BLUEPRINT), but it was actually the first book I ever wrote. I spent a few months earlier this year revising it so that I could bring the story and technology up to date (I first wrote it in 1996). Hope you enjoy it!

    Cheers,
    Boyd
