Hi Timothy,

Just completed "A Nail Through the Heart."

All I can say is 'Awesome!' I am looking forward to "The Fourth Watcher" very much. I always love it when I can add new authors to my 'must read' pantheon. (And you're right, I'd buy "Etruscan Secret Goatherd Techniques Revealed" if it was written by Lee Child... ;)

Hi Timothy, I wanted to thank you for becoming my friend. I read some of your blogs, I see you have a good sense of humor. The Fourth Watcher is a good title. And it wouldn't hut to get a few thousand of your books sold become readers think it's from Silva. Maybe I should put Prey in all my titles and catch some of Sandford's fans.

And thanks again. I see you write about Thailand and that certainly makes my mouth water. I look forward to reading the books. And much good luck with them. I'm not quite happy with Burdett, :)

Timothy, thank you for your very, very nice comment on my page. It meant a lot when, like so many others, I struggle from book to book, wondering if the series will survive one more time.

Tim
I actually received the book from the editor of the web site; it looks like she got it straight from HarperCollins.

The review can be found at www.newmysteryreader.com. Click the New Hardcover tab and scroll down about half way.

And yes, I'd love to be including to receive your future releases. I'll send you a private message with my particulars if you like.

Hey, Tim, thanks for the comment. Sorry about the delayed response - script deadlines. I too, am a firm believer in structure. Particularly in scriptwriting which is probably the most technical of the writing arts (crafts?). For me it's also the hardest part - I detest outlining, but in scriptwriting, it's a necessary evil.

Anyhoo, nice to cyber meet you, I'll definitely look out for your book.

Thank you for your comment on my page. Good to meet you. I had to befriend after reading your 'Soul Patrol' post. It was not only hilarious but sent me thinking in ten different directions at once--Soul vs Mind/ consciousness, the State as artbiter of spiritual experience, Western children identified as reincarnations of lamas and then rebelling, those discarded girls you mentioned coming back as...what? Talk about a horror story with great potential.

Heard a lot of good things about your latest book--I will definitely pick it up. MWA Southern California will be having an informal get-together at the Edison in downtown L.A. on Wednesday after 6 p.m. (Basically we'll be hanging out in the bar.) If you have any questions, direct them to Eric Stone. Good luck and I'm sure that I'll be bumping into you--if not at the Edison, then somewhere else in L.A.

Thanks for the link to the Chandler reference. I knew about the small pages, but not that he drove himself to something magical on each one. That's very cool.

From that post, I followed the link to your tips on writing, and was delighted to see we have quite a few things in common. I'm working a full-time job that keeps me away from home for 11 hours Monday through Friday, but I make every effort to write every day, with pre-set targets of what is to be accomplished each day. It usually takes between an hour to an hour and a half (more on weekends), but I have to stay until I'm done. I can do more, but not less.

I poked around in your blog for a bit. Lots of good stuff there. Have you ever thought of adding a feed to it, so folks who are interested can be notified when you post?

As for the twelve or thirteen hundred friends who'd like to buy A Nail Through the Heart, I did my best. I reviewed it ( quite favorably) for the New Mystery Reader web site.

Good luck and thanks for addign me as a friend.

I agree with your author list. No way to mention Raymond Chandler too much.

I finished reading A Nail Through the Heart a couple of weeks ago and liked it very much.

Ooooh I love this question - gives me a chance to "push the locals". Adrian Hyland is a new author here making quite a splash in our circles, but for a more complete list you might like to check out:

Tim-- Thanks for your note. Coincidentally, I was just on your website -- it's great! I've been hitting a wall with the book I'm writing and I've been immersed in your Resources for Writers section. Great advice. Thanks! Meredith

I think they must be simply looking for ways to steal their writers' identities. Maybe not.

Good to see you too. Welcome to this place. It seems to be pretty useful.

Hi Timothy, welcome to CS. Good luck with your new novel and thanks for pointing out your website - I can see myself spending many hours paging through all that accumulated info.

cheers
