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.

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!

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

I hope you enjoy it, JP!

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

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.

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.

My favorite is The Proteus Operation by James P. Hogan. I know that Weapons of Choice by John Birmingham was also popular.

I loved WIRED by Douglas Richards so much that I gave him an endorsement. I highly recommend this fast-paced, high-concept thriller, and it's only $0.99. Here's what I wrote about it:

"A keep-you-up-all-night thriller. Intense action, mind-blowing concepts, & breathtaking twists. Enjoy the ride."

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!

Now get the next series out!  ;D Show that old Indie spirit.And entice your publisher to donate books to the troops too, if they don;t already.

Ed P

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

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?

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.

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.

Robots are getting a lot of attention because of Robopocalypse by Daniel Wilson. It's being made into a movie by none other than Stephen Spielberg. Could robots vs. vampires be next?

Jurassic Park. Brilliant premise. Who doesn't think dinosaurs are cool?

When I was self-published, I was mortified when readers found errors, and I fixed them immediately (I'm still appalled when readers find errors, but it's more difficult to get them fixed in print editions, which is why publishers do extensive copyediting). So I would have been grateful for you to send me a private message noting typos, especially because it costs absolutely nothing for a self-published author to re-upload a corrected version.

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, 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.

Mark Alpert's thrillers Final Theory and The Omega Theory feature a boy who's autistic. There's also a thriller coming out this Fall called Cold Glory by B. Kent Anderson that has a hero with an autistic son.

As I was typing, Brian made my point. You can always be sued. The real questions are

1) Is your target likely to sue you?
2) If he does, would the judge throw out the case before trial?
3) If the case isn't thrown out, will you win?
4) If you are sued, do you have the money to pay an attorney to defend you?

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......

Thanks, Geoff!

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.
