Comments: Dear Graham,

Well, I am very sorry about this joke concerning Mr Marek and I ask you to forgive me...
Your characters are so well depicted that sometimes the readers are tempted to think they are existing in real life, and to use their own imagination to attribute them new qualities or defaults!
Equally, it was a way to assure you that I am reading your novels very seriously, as far as History is concerned.
But this was a kind of humour much inappropriate...

Christophe

P.S. The new version of my essay will be achieved by the end of april, and my intention is to submit it to Marc Bailly to get his appreciation!

Comments: I went on the link you suggested and found: "Rubber Dollies: running shoes. Not to be confused with rubber johnnies"...funny!
I also like this expression, even if not typically irish:"I could eat a baby's arse through the bars of a cot = I am hungry"...

Comments: Here is the reference (I had discovered it a few months ago):
http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/877518082... It is written about WHITE BONES: "there is a glossary of Cork slang at the back of the book".

Comments: About the Cork slang and Katie Maguire, I have seen some information that a glossary is included in some version of WHITE BONES. Is this information correct? Could you give us one or two examples of this Cork slang used in WHITE BONES? (I have only the french version...)

Thanks !

Christophe

Comments: You're having trouble? You should try living there! But I'm pleased you're enjoying the Katie Maguire books. Take a look at the Cork slang dictionary on this link:

Comments: Dear Graham,
Thank you so much for your Katie Maguire books i am really enjoying them but i do have some problems with the cork local terms even though i am from Ireland myself.
Do you have a glossary of terms or can you point me in the direction of a cork dictionary.
Many thanks
Dennis

Comments: Maggie, the Kindle prices are as much of a mystery to me as they are to you. I have asked my agent about why they vary so wildly, and the answer I got was next to incomprehensible. I believe it is something to do with promotion but who exactly decides on the prices I have yet to fathom. I will investigate further and let you know.

Comments: Hi. I am so looking forward to reading the latest Katie Maguire book. However, there may be a hitch to that as the Kindle price is over 7. The last book is up for 19p. Not sure how the e-book prices are worked out but that's a bit of a price difference. Perhaps you could explain it to me or at least let me know if the price of your new book will go down. I am an avid fan of your books and have read nearly all of them.
I also just want to say how sorry I am to hear about your tragic loss.

Comments: Thanks, Carol. Yes -- Katie having sisters does make her more interesting to write about. I hope you enjoy the forthcoming books about her!

Comments: Thank you for responding to my query. I'm sorry for such a tragic loss.
As for Katie, I think being one of seven daughters changes her family dynamic, and I am looking forward to reading the next books in the series to see where her job, life, and family take her.
In other words, I'm looking forward to where YOU take her.

Comments: Yes, Brian, there is a fifth Katie Maguire novel BLOOD SISTERS coming out on June 1 this year, and a sixth will be published in February 2016. I have been commissioned to write a seventh, too, so that should keep you entertained for quite a while.

Carol, yes, you are absolutely right, that was a howler. I wrote the first Katie Maguire novel in 2002 when we were livi9ng in Ireland and it was published solely in the United States under the title A TERRIBLE BEAUTY. It wasn't until ten years later that m,y publishers Head of Zeus picked it up for publication in the UK as WHITE BONES (they didn't think a British audience would appreciate the quote from Yeats as a title). They wanted a second Katie novel so I wrote BROKEN ANGELS but I was going through a difficult time then because my wife had just passed away and I omitted to go back to the original novel and checked all of Katie's family history. So, mea culpa. I apologise if it spoiled your enjoyment in any way. In all future books, Katie has sisters.
