I know just what you mean... though in my case please swap Chrimbo shopping for hospital appointments Ė and I know which of the two I prefer. I'm delighted you enjoyed the book, by the way. The next one is still some way off, Im afraid, but rest assured that in the months to come you will be able to track its progress via this message board. Take care, Dave.

Anyway just a few more things to buy and then i'm just about done. Thank heavens. Dave I really enjoyed your book "a gift to die for" and I sincerely hope we donít have too wait too long for the sequel or maybe even a new story altogether. Good luck and merry crimbo everyone. Ron.

Actually, I sat through nearly a whole hour of TV, watching and waiting for Mr. Herbert to appear, and then he only seemed to be on TV for five minutes or so. It was very disappointing because I think he's an excellent writer - and also a very rich one. Dave.

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi everybody, hope everyone is having a nice quiet Sunday after doing all that xmas shopping. Did anyone see the james herbert interview on telly the other day? Apparently he was paid a million quid for his latest book and a million bucks for the film rights. Not bad, eh? Did you earn anything like that for your book, dave? :-)Take care, Jamie.
186 Tue December 02 2003 - 20:16:00 Fullname: Dave Cook Email: Comments: Yes, Tammy, collaboration on a story can often be a good idea. Though having said that, I remember reading THE TALISMAN by Stephen King and Peter Straub many, many moons ago and found the whole experience rather sad and depressing. Normally I love reading Stephen King novels and yet I just couldn't get away with that particular story one little bit. Then again, maybe it was just the way I was feeling at the time, which can, of course, make a big difference. Take care, Dave. xxx

email@example.com Comments: Hi Dave!! Yep, my life is pretty hectic-dont know if I am able to write something before the deadline. My daughter & I are playing around with an idea. She is actually much better at writing that I could ever hope to be. I come up with some great ideas, but they never seem to find their way to paper. Perhaps a collaberation might work! I'll be sure to let you know so I can get some feedback. Peace-Tammy
188 Mon December 01 2003 - 23:19:24 Fullname: Dave Cook Email: Comments: Hi Tammy! Thanks for the kind words about my work. I loved writing PLENTY LONG ENOUGH. I just woke up one morning and BOOM - the story came to me in a flash! If only they were all like that. There's still some way to go before my next book is ready, although it so happens that I sent the first three chapters to an American publisher just a couple of weeks ago. It's an exclusive preview and I hope they like it.
By the way, Tammy, saying as you've registered at Darklines.com, does this mean you'll be entering a story for the Christmas competition? Do you enjoy writing (as much as reading), or is life too hectic? Dave. xxx

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Hi Dave-I finally got around to registering on Darklines.com & reading PLENTY LONG ENOUGH. I'll never pick up a hitchhiker again!! Keep on writing, I love what I have read from you so far. When is your next book coming?? Peace Tammy
190 Mon December 01 2003 - 11:41:59 Fullname: Dave Cook Email: Comments: Helen, in the first competition, I don't remember any poetic entries. So the only way to find out if BLOOD LUST is good enough, I guess, is to go for it! Dave. xxx

email@example.com Comments: I cant think of a theme- I want to do vampires but that sounds so naff because its done two million times over.
I remember writing a poem ages ago called "Blood Lust" (something like that) which is about a vampiress going for her next victim but I dont know if its good enough.
192 Sun November 30 2003 - 15:07:14 Fullname: Dave Cook Email: Comments: Thanks, Jamie. I wonder if Helen has come up with a theme for her story? By the way, Helen, now that you've signed up to the site you should be able to read my winning entry, PLENTY LONG ENOUGH. You'll find it in the Contests/Winners section, written under the pseudo name, Toon. Dave.xxx

firstname.lastname@example.org Comments: Good luck with your stories Helen and Dave. I barely have time to read never mind write so I dont think I'll be taking that one up. lol. Still only halfway thro the Richard Laymon book but enjoying tremendously. Be happy everyone! Jamie
194 Fri November 28 2003 - 14:50:37 Fullname: Dave Cook Email: Comments: Whey-hey, Helen... good for you! The guidelines make for an interesting challenge and I wish you the very best of luck. I've been mulling over my entry these last few days and I think I've come up with the inkling of an idea. Hopefully, you will be able to do likewise.
Meanwhile, I've just finished reading GM's NIGHT WARRIORS, so I'll put it to one side for when my daughter, Victoria, comes up here for Chrimbo. She's bound to love it! Dave.xxx
