I enjoyed THE ADAMAS BLUEPRINT very much and am sure that new readers will love the updated version.

And I am looking forward to the new Tyler Locke book.

Just sayin......

    Thanks, Geoff. Hard to believe that was more than two years ago.

    I hope you enjoy it, JP!

    It's encouraging to hear of a print deal for books that got their start on the Kindle.  Congrats on your success!

    I wanted to let everyone know, if you've been waiting for the price of The Vault to come down, today's the day. The paperback is released today, and the Kindle price has dropped to $7.99 to match. Enjoy!

    Still no sign in the UK of The Rogue Wave (The Tsunami Countdown here, I believe). The paperback isn't out till December 2012 (!!!) and there's no mention of the Kindle version at all. :'(

    Similarly The Rosewell Conspiracy (the new Tyler Locke book) is due out here in July, but no Kindle edition shown yet. Is this the same title as in the US?

    The Catalyst (UK title?) has been out here in paperback since last November - but again, no Kindle edition.

    Any news on all these, Boyd?

    Hi Linjeakel,

    They pushed back the release of The Tsunami Countdown to get one more Tyler Locke book under our belts in the UK before it comes out. It's set for publication on December 6 of this year, and I'm sure there will be a Kindle version as well, even if it's not up for pre-order yet (they may be waiting until we have a cover design). I doubt you could publish a book these days without a Kindle version.

    There will definitely be a Kindle version of The Roswell Conspiracy as well. It comes out May 31 in Australia and July 19 in the UK. No word yet on a title or release date in the US.

    The Catalyst isn't actually supposed to be on sale in the UK. That's a gray-market listing for the US version (probably used or unauthorized import), which is why there isn't a Kindle edition. I don't have a title or release date yet for the UK version, but I'd guess sometime next year.

    Hope that clears it up. The confusion comes because I have different publishers in the US and UK, and they each have exclusive rights to their own markets.

    It is great to hear from you, Boyd!  Are The Roswell Conspiracy and The Trigger the same or two different books?  What do you mean we don't have a release date for the U.S.??  :'(

    Hi Crebel, The Trigger used to be the US title for The Roswell Conspiracy, but that's no longer the case. The novel will definitely come out in the US, I just don't know when or under what title. I'll post again as soon as I know.

    So The Trigger and The Roswell Conspiracy are two titles for the same book which is yet to be released. . .and are none of the ones that were originally released independently, correct?

    Correct, Ann. The Roswell Conspiracy is the UK, Australia, and New Zealand title for the third Tyler Locke adventure. The Trigger is an old title we were considering for the US version of the same book, but that's changing to something else; I just don't know what yet.

    I wanted to let everyone know that I will be returning to the world of self-publishing this summer with The Roswell Conspiracy, which is Tyler Locke 3 (but in the US only). To find out why, you can read the whole story in a blog I wrote for the Huffington Post.

    Well I found that article most interesting.

    .........

    May I say that I have all of your published work, in the original epub versions (which I don't think needed any editing - but that is just me).
    I will be "over-the-top" to be able to get the next Tyler Locke book so soon, in epub format. What a gift to your fans.

    I know this may not be the result you wanted for this work, but as a fan, I am delighted to be able to get it.

    Thanks, Geoff! I'm just happy that the book will be out at all in the US. If this had happened five years ago, that would probably not be the case.

    I understand that.
    Be happy that you were able to keep the rights to a book that they did not want to publish.
    One of my favorite "traditional" authors, C.J. Cherryh has had some of her work tied up in some strange agreements.  Some of her work is out of print, but she cannot epub it because of the contract rights that she signed a long time ago.  Sad.

    Yay! The Roswell Conspiracy is coming out on May 31 in the UK - earlier than expected! I have it on pre-order - can't wait to get my teeth into a new Tyler Locke story.  :D

    Switched on my Kindle first thing this morning and watched "The Roswell Conspiracy" download before my eyes.  ;D

    What a treat to get the new Tyler Locke book before the US does. Not that I'm gloating or anything. Not me. Well, not much!  :o

    Not sure how much reading time I'll get over the next few days, but I have already started it. Hmmm... I wonder if they'll notice if I sneak an extra long lunch break ....

    Glad you got it, Linda. Yes, Little, Brown decided to get an early start with the ebook, so it came out the same day it was available in print in Australia. The paperback version in the UK still comes out July 19. This kind of release pattern seems to be the new norm in the UK for Hachette. Unfortunately, US readers will have to wait until later this summer for the ebook release (more news to come on why in a few days).

    No, I haven't. I thought I was supposed to just keep adding to this thread. Getting pretty long though.

    I just finished reading The Roswell Conspiracy and - no surprise - I really enjoyed it. Another fast paced, edge-of-your-seat adventure for Tyler Locke and friends - I couldn't wait to find out what happened and solve the mystery from the very beginning of the book - but now it's finished I wish I still had more to read!

    It's no good, Boyd, you'll just have to write another one .....
