Ooh yay! That sounds promising. I doubt the lovely Charlie Jackpot will be making an appearance though. :(

Thanks for that Cupid.

Ooh, that blurb's got me all excited! Thanks Cupid!

Judee, I asked Mark if Charlie would be in the new book at a signing fairly recently, and he said no. *sniffle* :(

WHAT!? No more Jackpot? No more Charlifer? :(
But Lucifer Box isn't the same without a delectable manservant. Well, if he isn't in it, what happened to him... hmm.

Maybe it's like Bond. Same character - different bond girl with each installment.

Ooo, I might try to go to this! However, you have to "order the book" in advance? Does that mean they are trying to calculate numbers at the signing?

Hey , anyone have any idea when Mark's new book "The Devil in Amber" will be out and whether we think he's got any booksignings lined up? (preferably in the north )

"Devil in Amber: A Lucifer Box Novel" is supposed to be published in
hardcover on November 7th 2005 with the ISBN 074325709X.

Ignore Amazon saying it's out. I tried ordering it from them and I got an email saying "Ooops, sorry, we can't get it..."

Losers!

No signing dates yet. I'll have them on me webby site as soon as there are. http://www.vesuviusclub.com
