A quick news update:

Work continues apace on Lock 4, and it's starting to vaguely resemble a novel.

Next month I'll be appearing alongside Lee Child at the Easons store on O'Connell Street in Dublin. Details here: http://www.seanblackbooks.com/events.php

The audiobook of Gridlock is on the way, and I am delighted to tell you that the narrator is Jeff Harding, who also narrated The Da Vinci Code, The Bourne series, and, yes, Lee's Reacher books.

Finally, the agency that reps my books, Trident Media in New York, have announced a new e-book division. A great move by them and one that this client welcomes. It's going to make my life a lot easier.

Tess Gerritsen Is Stalking Me

...or perhaps it's the other way around?
I give you Exhibit A, where Ms. Gerritsen is to be found strategically placed next to a whole dump bin of paperbacks of Lockdown. By the way, that small child has the look of a man gathering forensic science tips in order to pull off the perfect murder at a later date.

Exhibit B: Who is the first author who should appear in the 'Also Boughts' next to the Kindle version of Lockdown on Amazon.com?
Lockdown (Ryan Lock 1)
Yes, you guessed it. What is the loveliest woman in crime fiction slumming it next to me for? One can only guess.
Restraining orders on the back of a postcard carved from human flesh to Sean Black, Black Towers, Dublin, Ireland.

Lock Comes Home

All three of the Lock books are now available for Kindle in the USA and Canada. They'll be rolling out to Barnes and Noble Nook, the Apple Store (US and Canada) and Kobo soon. But for now Amazon is the place to go for the ebooks, which are very reasonably priced compared to the UK, German, Dutch and Russian paper editions.
If you are in the US or Canada, would like a hardcover or paperback, and are having trouble finding one, please contact me via the website or on Facebook (www.facebook.com/seanblackthrillers), and I will try to point you in the right direction.
If you have stumbled across this blog post and are thinking 'huh?', 'what?' then check the website to find out more about the books and their author.
If you would like a signed first edition you can contact me via the website, and I will try and accommodate your request.
