    I think I'm on a panel at Interaction. That might be a bit scary.
    Oh, by then you'll be an expert. If in doubt you can always 'deal with them, Parrish style....'

    Talking of Interaction (except I keep trying to call it Intervention!) at the moment, there's a gang of sffworld people hoping to be there (including me!)

    If it all works out, I'll make sure I come say 'Hi'.

    Yeah, that idea's been kicked around too. Might just happen, even if it means we just 'claim' one area of a bar somewhere..... But you (and anyone else round here) would be welcome!

    In all honesty I didn't come up with enough to do justice to a post...

    I started Code Noir this morning and just finished it, excellent stuff! I was particularly impressed at how you altered the way we feel about Daac and Teece as the story went on, and Teece??? How could he??? I think I love her more now than I did after Nylon angel.

    I loved the ending, very dark and kinda reminiscent of the promise showed by the first Matrix movie.

    Oh, one more thing MdP, stop wasting time reading this stuff and go get writing!!!!!

    Hi Jac,

    why thank you so much!! Parrish is sure to buy you a drink after this
    Why don't you enter the fan fic comp? It should be fun.

    In all honesty I've never written a piece of Fanfic in my life. I honestly don't think I'd do her justice. You have however got me thinking though...

    Please tell me there's another book!

    Hi Jac,

    Crash Deluxe is out in the UK in June this year - final book of the trilogy. Parrish gets sex-ed up.

    So, Jacquin finally handed Parrish over to me...........and I'm through both books already. I can honestly say that this is exactly my kinda book.......kick-ass chick near-future sci-fi action in technicolour .........and this is the best example of the same that I have read in ages. I want book three NOW!!!!!!

    Do we have a 'spoilers' thread to discuss the books so far in?

    Can I ask what the plan is after this, Marianne??

    Hi Sammie,

    that's very cool that you liked them. Thanks Jac for passing them on! As I read your post I am just sitting doing the proofs for book 3 (Crash Deluxe). It will be out in June in the UK. If you'd like to discuss the books just open a thread for it in my section here - I'll be happy to answer any questions you have. OR slide on over to Parrish's Patch
    at http://torleys.proboards34.com/index.cgi

    Plans? Well I'm writing a new (different) series (still character based with some strong women in it) but my plan is to have a break for a year from Parrish (she's such an intense, overwhelming character). If the publishers are keen still then I'd like to do another two books in the future. But plans are one thing...depends on how many of you guys shout loud enough that you like her.

    In the mean time keep your fingers crossed for me that at Parrish rpg gets off the ground... there's been a few nibbles for that. Nibbles don't always amount to a meal.

    cheers and thanks again for letting me know you enjoyed the books.

    Marianne, Jac's been raving lyrical about your works, but I can't find 'em anywhere, and I'm in NZ - are they being released here?

    Hi there BOP,
    what a fascinating net name! I won't ask why.

    Jac is VERY kind.

    The books are distributed by PENGUIN so any reputable bookshop should be able to get them in quickly enough if not in stock.

    I think this one is also in NZ

    http://www.whitcoulls.co.nz/

    I hope to get over to you National SFF Con one day. Do you know much about it?

    best

    Thanks Marianne - I looked at whitcoules and they didn't have it in, but I'm guessing they can order it in for me.

    I haven't been to that con so I wouldn't be of much help, sorry.
