Gee, why did they change the name to Maureen Miller's already published book.

    That was discussed a while ago. Apparently there's a lot of "Rogue Wave"s out there. Remember, you can't copyright titles.

    I was just saying as authors on Kindleboard. I'll read them both as they are both top-notch authors.

    Just finished The Palmyra Impact which will be re-released as Rogue Wave at the end of November . . . .pre-order price is $5.99 and it is SO worth it. . . . .definitely a 5 Star read. . . . . .act now before the price goes up! (Though it would still be worth it at twice that!)

    For the Taiwan release of THE ARK, the translator wrote on awesome blog about all the technology I used in the book. Spolier alert! It gives away some of the items that will become important in the story, but if you want to see a massive dump truck literally flattening a pickup, a freefall lifeboat launching, or a video on the monastery at Khor Virap, check it out. The blog is in Chinese, but you'll still be able to get the gist of it. It's so great, I may rewrite in English for my own blog.

    Ann, I just turned in the final page proofs for ROGUE WAVE. Even after re-reading it for the hundredth time, I'm still very proud of that story, so thanks for posting about it. Also, I just saw the cover image for THE VAULT. It looks fantastic! I can't wait to share it.

    Having now read it. . . . . .I see why they wanted to change the title to Rogue Wave.  By calling it an "Impact" I had a pretty good idea very early on as to what caused the wave. . .of course, the hints are still there, and you find out for sure relatively soon, but still. . . . . .

    I'm pleased to share the US cover for Rogue Wave coming in December 2010 (it will be available on Kindle, of course, but it's not available for pre-order yet). I also wrote a blog for Heritage Key in advance of the UK release of The Noah's Ark Quest if you want to see my top 10 reasons the search for Noah's Ark is the ultimate archaeological thriller.

    I see it as a pre-order here, Boyd:  http://www.amazon.com/Rogue-Wave-ebook/dp/B003UYUORC/?tag=kbpst-20  Price is $5.99.  No cover illustration, though. . . .which, by the way, I like!

    And, may I just say, I could totally see it as a 'major motion picture'! :D

    I was just looking at Boyd's books on Kindle to make a choice for my August Book Game, and I found that "Rogue Wave" (previously released on Kindle as The Palmyra Impact) is available for preorder at $5.99.  I just finished this in its original iteration and loved it.  Different than The Ark, a good fast read, and a great preorder price.  Just sayin' as a very satisfied fan.  No cover art yet, though!

    It's been available as a pre-order since at least August 1st...

    Thanks, GreenThumb! I just turned in THE VAULT this week, and I'm eager to hear what my editor thinks about it.

    Don't know why the cover for ROGUE WAVE isn't appearing on the Kindle version (it is for the paperback version). We're checking into that.

    I'm excited to announce that ROGUE WAVE (formerly The Palmyra Impact) is now available on the Kindle. Thanks to everyone for reading The Palmyra Impact when I was a self-published author. Unfortunately, if you left a review for it last year, that review is now gone. We're trying to get that fixed, but it may be that Amazon won't transfer the reviews over because the book has a new title now.

    My one and only signing for Rogue Wave will be this Saturday at Seattle Mystery Bookshop, so if you'd like a signed DTB copy of the paperback, come on over to their web site before Saturday.

    Congrats, Boyd, on "hitting the big time!"

    One question: Are there any changes in this publication from "The Palmyra Impact?" I enjoyed that Kindle book immensely, and wonder whether "Rogue Wave" is a rewrite, or changed significantly from the original? (It seemed polished and professional just as it was, IMHO!)

    Thanks!

    Thanks, r0b0d0c! There are some changes to tighten up the pacing, remove some extraneous characters, and strengthen the remaining characters, but the plot is the same.

    Woo!  Just finished Rogue Wave on my K3.  My blood pressure and heart rate are finally returning to normal.  What a thriller of a story!

    Unfortunately, ROGUE WAVE has been missing from the Kindle store for the last two days, and I don't know why. I've been pestering Amazon to get it back online, but no progress yet. I apologize for the mix-up, and I'll let you know when it's back online.

    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.
