THE ETERNAL WORLDgot a great review from Kirkus last week. You can read the whole thing here, but I’m pretty happy about these lines:

“Heaven goes by favor. If it went by merit, you would stay out and your dog would go in.”
Mark Twain

“A dog is the only thing on earth that loves you more than he loves himself.”
Josh Billings

“If animals could speak, the dog would be a blundering outspoken fellow; but the cat would have the rare grace of never saying a word too much.”
Mark Twain

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”
Will Rogers

“Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent. To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring--it was peace.”
Milan Kundera

O...Kay. So maybe not as epiphanistic as I thought. Apparently alot of ppl also agree with the "24" reference.

I'm sorry about that, Krista. If I could have made it Tuesday, I would have.

And thank you on Sadie's behalf for the compliment. She's a very good dog.

P.J. Coldren I'm not computer literate enough (and just don't have the time right now due to family pressures) to post a picture of myself holding BLOOD OATH - although I'd love to be able to do it. Is there ANY other way I can get a t-shirt? Please? Thanks.

Christopher Farnsworth Andy --

Thanks so much. That's awesome news. I appreciate all the support.

CDF


Christopher Farnsworth Dani --

Sorry, no plans for NC right now. I'm pretty much limited by time and budget considerations. However, if you know a bookstore willing to host, get them in touch with me, and we can try to plan something for the paperback release or the next installment in the series.

Thanks so much for the interest.
