THE SCHOOLMASTER'S DAUGHTER, to be published this fall, by Pegasus Books, New York.

The Schoolmaster's Daugther, which is set in Boston during the first year of the American Revolution, will be published this fall as the lead title by Pegasus Books, New York.

Also, e-book edtions of my earlier novels (Cold, Fire Point, The Invisible World, and Winter by Degrees) are now available at All books are "attractively priced" at $2.99, except John's first novel, which is 99-cents. We wanted to give the first novel away, but Amazon doesn't allow, if you purchase Winter by Degrees and email me a mailing address I'll send you a buck, plus a really neat present (think Cracker Jacks--you want a car, talk to Oprah!). Consider it our 23rd anniversary celebration--hard to believe it was 1987, when the novel was first published by E. P. Dutton.
