Revising "Merryll Manning On the Rim of Heaven"
7/8/2010 8:41:03 PM    [ Flag as Inappropriate ]

I'm currently revising "Merryll Manning On the Rim of Heaven" for the novel's first American appearance later this year. The book was originally published in England, Australia, New Zealand, etc., way back in 1985.


It was planned to make a movie of the original novel. Ray Barrett was cast as the hero, Merryll Manning, while John Meillon was to play his "unlikely partner", Harvey Jones, a watchmaker in the "small town" of Tenterfield, New South Wales. Merryll Manning, of course, was his usual self, but the characterization of Harvey Jones had to be reworked to fit John Meillon's screen persona.


For this fourth Merryll Manning adventure, I had originally intended to re-unite my hero with one of the characters who figured in an earlier book: "Merryll Manning: Trapped on Mystery Island"; "Merryll Manning: The Health Farm Murders"; or "Merryll Manning: Beachfront Holiday".


I will send a printed copy of "Merryll Manning On the Rim of Heaven" to everyone who can correctly identify the character from one of the three earlier books who re-appears to play a major role in "Merryll Manning On the Rim of Heaven". This is not a lottery. Everyone who makes a correct identification will receive a copy, so long as you are a resident of the USA, Canada or Great Britain. Closing date: September 15, 2010.
