New Deal News

Friday, December 9, 2011

I'm pleased to report that my books finally will be available in the US again. THE TENTH CHAMBER will be out in 2012, published by Thomas and Mercer, the Amazon thriller imprint. If this works well for everyone then they will follow-up with THE DEVIL WILL COME.

Also have agreed to a new Spanish-language deal for Spain and Latin America with my existing publisher, Random House Montadori for one book a year through 2015.

Interestingly, have just signed a deal for China for my first book, LIBRARY OF THE DEAD. A billion plus new readers????

In other news, IL MARCHIO DEL DIAVOLO, the Italian title for THE DEVIL WILL COME, launched this week in time for the Christmas season. And I've just begun work on my seventh book, RESURRECTION 2, a story about King Arthur, the resurrection of Christ and the Holy Grail...

September in Italy and Spain

Wednesday, September 21, 2011

Back in the States after a terrific 2 weeks in Italy and Spain. Glad to have reconnected with old friends and made new ones. The Pordenone Book Festival was amazing. Gratifying to see an entire town of 60,000 devote itself to books for a week.

Spanish and Catalan response to BOOK OF SOULS has been beyond expectations with the book on top-ten lists in fiction. Can't wait to return for another visit.

Some launch date info: IL MARCHIO DEL DIAVOLO - 7 December Italy/ THE DEVIL WILL COME - 27 October UK

The DEVIL WILL COME is coming

Friday, June 24, 2011

Look for my new book, THE DEVIL WILL COME in the UK and Italy in October. It's my first book based in Italy and my first book with a female protagonist. She's a young, beautiful Italian nun! Stay tuned...

Will Piper Movie?

I've concluded a deal with Evan Katz, the producer of 24 and The Event, to bring Will Piper and THE LIBRARY OF THE DEAD trilogy to the screen. It could be the big screen or the TV screen, we shall see but it's terrific news for me and anyone who's wondered how the book might translate into a film adaptation.

Speaking of trilogy, I'm deeply into THE LIBRARIANS, the third installment of the series.

Fantastic Week in Italy

Monday, February 14, 2011

I was overwhelmed by the hospitality of Italian readers last week. Their enthusiasm pushed LA MAPPA DEL DESTINO (The Tenth Chamber) to #1 on the bestseller list.

I had a whirlwind mix of TV, radio and newspaper interviews and book signings in Milan and Rome and topped it off with an amazing event in the town of Solfra in Campania. The Association to save their historical Castle Orsini (of which I am the honorary chair) sponsored a cultural debate which filled the town's historic meeting hall. It was a chilly night but I was warmed by the passion of the people of Solofra for their cultural heritage and for their love of books.

Here is a collection of pictures from the week:
