Hi A.M. My thoughts are also with you; along with a warm online hug. Thanks for the list of titles. Another thing, that I find somewhat annoying, is that titles are released waaay before they are even written. So you look inside a cover for the next book, which is listed. You try to find it and you can't because it hasn't even been written yet! It won't be written for another year.... Sorry, just needing to vent. On topic, finally started Dark Assassin and, of course, it has me hooked already.

I am so sorry to hear about your not being well. My prays are with you. Thanks for the update about her next books. I have to say I did not read any of her war stories. WW1 was a horror is so many ways I just am not confortable reading about it.

Once again it has been awhile since I last posted. Glad to see you all are thriving and reading! My chemotherapy has kept me sidelined quite a bit. Derrick, to answer your question about her next books, here you go: (These are UK titles which may change when published in the U.S. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the next Thomas Pitt novel.) "At Some Disputed Barricade" is due out October 2006. This is a WWI book - book 4. Her next Christmas book is due out November 2006 and is titled "A Christmas Secret" and seems to continue in the Monk family tradition. "We Shall Not Sleep" - another WWI book, is due in December 2007. Another book, "Africa Passage", a non-series book, is due in 2007-2008 though I do not know who nor what the book is about as yet. In case anyone is wondering, often a popular author must commit to a certain number of books within a series to satisfy his/her publisher. Hope this gives you a taste of what's to come!

Will have to check out the ones on the French Revolution. My she is amazing when you consider the time periods that she covers. (I am constantly impressed by the factual information she "throws out" in her books. I'll read something and think... That can't be right... but when I check the Internet or the encyclopedia sure enough she is!) Happy reading all. (Still haven't started the Monk book but will after tonight. Belong to a book club and have been reading Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood. Unusual for her as this book is set in 1834 Canada and deals with a true crime. Not bad but will take an AP book over Ms. Atwood anytime. - Sorry Margaret!)

There is also her book set about the time of the French Revolution. Has anyone got the title of the next book after Dark Assassin?

Hi PMS. Tried to send a message advising you to check AP's new site but my message got "removed"! Anyway, if this goes through you should check out her new site (very good) and follow the links to her books. The fantasy titles are near the bottom of the page. I'll probably read them first, before the WWI series - although the war books are very popular at the library here. Will comment on the new Monk as soon as I've had a chance to read it. Our weather has been exceptionally good so have been outside more than reading lately. (Our summers are so short you've got to enjoy them while you can!) Happy reading!

I hope that those fans of Pitt and Monk realise that Anne has also written books in the fantasy genre.
Also what happened many years ago still continues because she has a separate cult following especialy with teenage girls who see her as a model of reform and repentance.It might be just my opinion but I think her speciality interest of ethics could be used to set up as a web site to help some of these girls (Fans)on a personal basis.
