Jack Heath Post. - A Link

I only read my first Jack Heath book, Hit List, recently. I have reviewed it on this web site, January 11. It was a fast-paced thrill-a-minute book for boys which had a strong female protagonist and, unlike my one attempt to read Matthew Reilly, I actually cared about the characters. And the ending wasn't what you might expect.

On his website, Jack expresses his frustration with a certain big bookseller he calls ChaoSonic, and their undercutting the competition. You wouldn't think a best selling writer like him would have books out of print or a publisher unable to afford to release his books, would you? Personally, I don't think the GST helps either, but Jack is much younger than me and has grown up in the GST era, so hasn't seen the difference.

Maybe it's time to offer to overseas publishers or even self-publish as some other well-known writers have done.

Anyway, I'll let you see what he has to say here.

Thank you, Deirdra. Very kind of you to say that. Are you a follower? I can't find you on the list... Your badges are very pretty, did you design them?

That said, I think I would rather you promoted my blog on your own site to your 1100 followers than that you give me a badge to put up here. ;) Thanks anyway!
