A response from Lincoln Child himself.

14 May

Wow, this is a big day for me.

Right now, my favorite authors are Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child. I have been plowing through all of their novels; they co-write these amazing forensic/crime novels with a touch of the supernatural and include an amazing Renaissance protagonist. Anyhow, I felt compelled to write them a letter complimenting them on their books and embarrassingly proclaiming my love for their work. I never do this, I have probably only written 3 or 4 artists to announce that I am a fan in the past, it is just not my style. And so, swallowing my pride, I wrote them a letter. And guess what? I got a personalized response from the very Lincoln Child himself. This is very exciting.

It went:

“I’m honored you chose us as one of the first authors you contacted. I’m glad you’ve discovered our novels and thank you for taking the time to write us.

We’re currently at work on another Pendergast novel, which picks up shortly after the events in WHEEL OF DARKNESS conclude. It features Pendergast teamed up once again with Lieutenant D’Agosta as they investigate a series of Manhattan murders that take them deep into a strange and shadow-haunted world of Voodou. CEMETERY DANCE will be published in the summer of 2009.
Best regards, Lincoln Child”
Now since there is a change in font from the first paragraph to the second, obviously there is some copy/paste happening. But I assure you, the first paragraph is all mine! 30 words written to me, from the very man himself.

London, here I come!

Yesterday was the fateful day when I purchased my first airplane ticket to go overseas. My choice? Heathrow. I will be meeting my cousin there and hopefully she will be able to show me around, since her familiarity with the area far outweighs mine. It is a very exciting thing for me to be with family exploring another country. And she is lovely, I cannot wait to know her better.

Hopefully I will also make a trip to France or Ireland during the visit. Who knows, and that is the best part. Wish me luck! I will be traveling solo.
