I'm happy to announce that the US rights for The Palmyra Impact and The Adamas Blueprint have been acquired by editor Abby Zidle for the Pocket Books imprint of Simon and Schuster from my US agent Irene Goodman of the Irene Goodman Agency. Both books will be published as mass market paperback originals. The Palmyra Impact and The Adamas Blueprint were originally available as Amazon Kindle e-books, and they have been taken down from Amazon while Pocket Books prepares them for re-release. No release date has been set yet, and the titles of the books may change. We're still negotiating foreign rights. I'll let you know when I have more information

Last week, I was featured in a cover story in Taiwan's Business Weekly magazine about the electronic publishing phenomenon (let me know if you're in Taiwan and can translate it for me; I'd love to read it), and I appeared in my first web video interview at Bibliotechshow.com.

I just got cast in a stage production of Leading Ladies by Ken Ludwig, opening at Driftwood Players in Edmonds, Washington, on June 12. I will be playing one of the title leading ladies. If you haven't guessed already, it's a comedy in the tradition of Tootsie and Bosom Buddies. For those of you who are in the Seattle area and want to sear your eyeballs forever with the image of me in drag, please join us for a hilarious night at the theatre.

I just received my tenth US patent, for an application originally filed in 1999, with the title Advertisement and tracking in a television apparatus. Of course, my old employer, Thomson/RCA, actually owns the patent. It's still hard for me to believe you can get a patent for something like that.

My book, The Palmyra Impact, is an entry in Amazon's Breakthrough Novelist contest. I should know whether I've made the quarterfinals by mid-March.
I just finished playing Tom in Craig Lucas' Blue Window. What a fun play and a great experience.
