THE MARK hits the UKToday marks the release of my debut novel, THE MARK, in bookstores across the United Kingdom. I'll be traveling over there from June 2nd to June 8th to promote in England and Ireland, attending the CrimeFest convention in Bristol while there. Once I have a more specific itinerary I'll post it. Oh yeah, and you can buy the book at Amazon UK.
The UK publishing team has done an otherwordly job promoting this book, and I wanted to point out some very cool things happening:
Virgin Radio is running an amazing contest where the winner receives a trip for two to NYC, along with other assorted goodies. Check out the contest details here.
I wrote an article for Publishing News (the UK equivalent of Publishers Weekly). It's available online here.
And here are some reviews that have recently come in:
'This is a great debut obviously written by someone who knows the genre very well. An innocent man caught up in a murder only to be hunted by both the police and the criminals alike. Yes, it does sound like familiar territory but Jason Pinter gives it a new, electrifying life that would make any writer in the genre jealous. The Mark has the kind of explosive writing that will put Jason Pinter up there amongst the top names, with its go-for-broke thematic attitude and foreboding atmosphere makes it a big reason why the book stands out amongst the crowd. And this oft revised scenario works with a darkly melodic power. I can’t wait for the next book in the series."

"A cut-above the norm in this area and a good start to what should develop into a terrific series."
--Lovereading.co.uk on THE MARK (May 2008 debut of the month)
"It’s a brilliant debut... the action simply blazes along and the reader is caught up in the ride. All the elements are there, plus that something extra special that makes this book a publishing phenomenon that's definitely not to be missed. Go on, I dare you not to finish it in one sitting!"
