Is it true you have a new Limited Edition project coming up? I would name names, but I don't want to ruin any surprises for anyone.

Comments: Hi Jack (D)
so excited to see that there will be a sequel to offspring!!!!! LOVED off season and offspring. (i'm actually waiting for netflix to send over the movie of offspring any day now)
I also read The Birthing House ( before i read any of your books) and Gail was the one who brought to my attention that you had commented on the jacket of the book! (very cool....great minds think alike!) lol
I think I'm picking up Ladies Night after I finish Intensity by Dean Koontz.
as Gail mentioned below....I also think it's very cool that you reply to all us message board fans. When an author takes the time to actually read these comments it truly shows how much he appreciates his readers....it only makes us want to read more!
Kudos to u!

Comments: As Uncle Sam used to say (ominously), Greetings! GAIL -- glad you're enjoying THE BIRTHING HOUSE, which I thought was really quite good, and I think you're really going to like HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH DEMONS. MEAGHAN -- glad to have a forum to recommend stuff now and again...JOANNE -- yeah, HEADER can hurt! Glad you liked it. I think the book's being reissued soon. Contact Lee. AARON -- the rumors are true. The book's called THE WOMAN and with a sigh and a nod to the powers that be in the world of movie financing, the film will be called OFFSPRING: THE WOMAN. Best to all, D.

Comments: Hey Mr Ketchum,
over at Dread Central there is news of a Lucky Mckee/Angela Bettis/Jack Ketchum collaboration on an Offspring Sequel. Thoughts? Is this a rumor? At what point do I start screaming joy to the Gods of Cannibals and Beachside gatherings? Now? Say it's so, Mr Ketchum! Anyhow, all the best and keep up the awesome work.

Below, Gail made a comment about connecting with someone here...it's me. we've emailed every day since first connecting and we have made a bunch of recommendations to eachother.
I finally watched HEADER lastnight....and as I told Gail....BOY do i have a headache!!!!!!!
i really enjoyed seeing you and edward play the cops.
what a great story line!!!! as disturbing as it was....i couldn't take my eyes off the screen! and since books are usually better than the movies...I'm definitely gonna have to read that one. too bad I can't find it anywhere.
I also watched The Girl Next Door the other night. I had just read the book a few weeks ago and the movie was just how i pictured it while reading.
you and lee are amazing!!!!! your minds and method of writing are like nothing i've ever witnessed.
hope to shake your hand one day!

But now I got to go to the libary and check it out.LOL. Anyway Thanks again for putting it up,in a weird way it connects to my personal life and current relationship. It's put a good perspective in my head. Thanks for your wonderful writing and recommendations of books^^.
Have a great day and keep up the good work.

Comments: Mr Ketchum
so do i have this right in suggesting that you have your own copy of" how to make freinds with demons " you lucky guy, I will get that book, I am reading at the moment The Birthing House, you have written on the back of this book, it is really good so far, through this website have connected with a reader who has only just started with you for horror, we have established different views on books and she has ordered header!! she does'nt know what a header is yet lmao ! she will though. will keep checking the board for appearances Jack
all the best

Comments: The last three paragraphs of Graham Joyce's LEARING TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH DEMONS. No spoilers here really. Just listen.
"I knew it didn't matter what happened with Anna. Though I needed her more than ever to help me through. I was prepared for her to love me or leave me, to destroy me on the wheel of sex, to crush my heart to dust: I no longer felt I controlled it, or her, or even that I should. We can't live with our foot over the mine. We can't. For the first time since my youth I was unshackled. I had love, even though it scorched me.
You let go. It's as simple and as complicated as Antonia had told me. You cry. You come. You sing. You laugh. You scream. You let go. No one needs to hang on to a first edition, Whoever wrote it; even if it was Moses.
I looked back up at the sky, blinking at the lustrous beauty of the ascending and departing demons. They formed an alphabet I was beginning to learn to read. They were fire in the sky."
That's writing, my friends. Best, D.

Comments: Hi, folks -- two books to recommend -- Mr. King's UNDER THE DOME and Graham Joyce's HOW TO MAKE FRIENDS WITH DEMONS, now out from Night Shade Books. Very different from each other, but each pitch-perfect. DEMETRA -- thanks for posting on your animal rights page, keep up the good work. GAIL -- hope you've finished and enjoyed both ONLY CHILD and SMOKING POPPY by now. I was in Toronto last year for the Rue Morgue Festival and may be again this year. Keep an eye on my appearances page. JOANNE -- if you can wait, in June Leisure are publishing JOYRIDE backed with WEEK SPECIES, which seem right up your alley. Otherwise, if you'd like a dip into the supernatural, you might try SHE WAKES, my only novel to dip into that territory. BRANCK -- love to go to Denver but nobody's asked me to a Con there. Maybe one of these days. CHRIS -- Leisure are going to be releasing my e-books, starting next month with COVER and OLD FLAMES. Don't want to actually sell stuff via my website. That stance just isn't for me. Best to all, D.

Comments: So I finally finished my 5th Ketchum book. ONLY CHILD. WOW...is all I can say. I had actually expected it to be a bit more graphic...but nonetheless, it still wrapped me up in its pages and had me completely hating Arthur! lol
(that's what these books are supposed to do, right?!?) ;)
I WOULD LOVE YOUR PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION on the next book I should read. I've already read: Off Season, Offspring, Right To Life, Girl Next Door and like I said above, most recently Only Child.
Give me something raw, juicy, violent and gory! I know you must have done another book with these aspects!! Something that most people shy away from and just can't handle!
I'M WAITING.......... :)

Comments: So, its me again, i just recv'd only child through amazon , it came from britan, little bit of bad shape, bent spine, rough front, but hey, the story is intact
im half way through the smoking poppy and as i recv'd this book yesterday, I just had to take a boo at it, you gripped me with the first paragraph (knew i shouldn't have done that ! ) and have not been able to put it down, ( well i did for a minuite while i type this ) im at work and hiding it under my desk ! lol i will go back to the poppy, but what can i say ? you are the best at what you do jack, you never ever disappoint me, i looked at your appearences, the closest i can get to you is at the rock and shock, but it is still aways from toronto, and i thinik i would have to take off work, not into driving in the states , hubby said you have to be kidding ? i was not . but anyay hopefully you will come to toront soon will keep checking
all the best

Comments: Hi Jack and Steve-
For the past year I have been involved with the HSUS and found that there are many dedicated people trying to change the problematic animal laws in this country.
Proposition 2, California, was a big step.
I started a twitter page "My Dog Voula" to start a discussion on animal law. Please post.
I am activily pursuing justice and awareness.
I will keep you posted on further events in the justice of the killing of my beautiful girl, Voula.

Need to get that sucker back in print...LUCYGRACE -- you inflicted THE GIRL NEXT DOOR on yourself twice? Lovely! A lot of folks can't get through it once! GAIL -- you've got a treat in store with HEADER. And once you've read the book, rent the DVD and watch Lee and I imitate a couple of cops...MARK -- welcome to the board, and hope you do decide to read me a bit. Best to everyone, D.

Comments: Hi Mr. Ketchum, a while back I posted about my manuscript which I entered into Leisure Books/Rue Morgues "Fresh Blood" competition. Your work was a huge inspiration for me. Well, I made it in! I've been shortlisted for the top 10. Voting starts this Friday, so now it's all over to the power of the people. First voting category is BEST OPENING CHAPTER. If you're free anytime Friday or afterwards feel free to swing by and read what's on offer. Maybe even throw some votes around? And that's an invitation to all, it should be fun!
Also, just read "The Crossings" : wow! More people need to read this one, it's fantastic. Cannot wait to meet "THE WOMAN". Take care and happy new year! Oh and what's the status on "The Passenger" adaptation? Any news?
1024 Sun January 10 2010 - 15:47:39
Comments: Whoops, missed a few...LUCYGRACE -- glad you covered COVER and the other books. STEVE Y -- thanks for pointing me to the King list. OLD FLAMES made it on there last year, which was pretty cool. I'll check out JENNIFER'S BODY (wait, that doesn't sound right.) KONNIE -- you go to bars, you meet the occasional psycho lady. So yeah, there have been a few. Thankfully not many. GAIL -- glad I turned you on to Graham Joyce. You might also try INDIGO at some point. Best best, D.

Comments: Elvis would have been three days into his 76th year today...just thought I'd point that out to y'all...BILL MILLER -- thanks for alerting folks to the Blu-ray. That means your cinematography is going to look even more beautiful! JOANNE -- I'll be doing the Rock 'n Shock Festival in Worcester this year, which isn't far from Boston. Come on by. And yes, that is my real signature on your copy of ONLY CHILD. I don't do no rubber stampin'! Best to all, D.
