I'm totally stealing Kate Davies's shtick by using her Book B(uy) I(t) N(ow) Tuesday, but I think she'll forgive me. See, my friend Boyd Morrison's book The Ark comes out in mass market paperback today and I'm super excited to get a copy. (Love the guy, but I just couldn't afford the hardcover price, you know? And I can say that here because I told him the same thing. LOL)
Here's the blurb from Barnes & Noble.com:
When brilliant archaeologist Dilara Kenner is contacted by Sam Watson, an old family friend who says that he has crucial information about her missing father, Dilara abandons her Peruvian dig and rushes to Los Angeles to meet him. But at the airport, Sam speaks instead of Noah’s Ark—the artifact her father had long been searching for—and the possible death of billions. Before Sam can explain, he collapses. With his dying breath, he urges Dilara to find Tyler Locke—a man she’s never heard of.
Two days later Dilara manages to track down former combat engineer Tyler Locke on an oil rig off Newfoundland. Her helicopter transport goes down well short of the oil rig’s landing pad and Dilara and those aboard nearly drown. No sooner is Dilara safely on the rig than she convinces Tyler the crash was no accident. Tyler agrees to help her uncover the secret behind Noah's Ark and, more important, her father's disappearance.
As the picture begins to come into focus, they realize they have just seven days to find the Ark before its secret is used to wipe out civilization once again.
Tell me that doesn't sound like an awesome ride! Woo-hoo! So why don't you all pop out to your local bookstore and Buy It Now? I know I'm going to!
