It would also give me a chance to get back to one of my favorite characters, Griff. I've always wanted to do more with him. There's also the untold story, hinted at in The President's Vampire, where the Shadow Company killed one of Cade's handlers and immediately learned to regret it. Thanks so much. Just one more project for the list...(less)

“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

That's a great compliment. Book Two is almost finished, but it will still be a while before it hits the stands. Thanks again for the kind words. Hope to see you on the tour, if I'm stopping by near your town.

Christopher Farnsworth Thank you all so much. I'm just grinning like an idiot today. I hope you all like the book. And in case you didn't see it, here's some news about the movie deal:

I really appreciate all the support from everyone at Goodreads. I think it's made a huge difference. And I'd love it if you kept spreading the word.

Thanks again.

Andy Congrats on the launch! There is a terrific buzz in our store about your book among our customers. We have a number of events this week which means lots of folks wandering around...perfect for the hand-sell!


message 11: by Dani

Dani Beckman Any plans to come to Charlotte, NC for a book signing?


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.

Christopher Farnsworth Andy --

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

Krista I must say I really am rather miffed that I have to wait until Thursday for the book release. Why no Tuesday release? Two more days is two too many! Also, you have an very beautiful pooch.

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.

Brian Steele Damn it, Farnsworth! I just finished "Red, White and Blood." After giving all three books 5 stars, I suppose I have to admit that I'm officially a fan-boy.

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