Best Christmas gift! Thanks! Looking forward to the rest of it in April.
Love it already…but now I have to wait til April? Dammit.
Thank you !!!!!! I eagerly await 4/3. But what shall I reread in the interim to prepare? Biff or Fool, I think.
Merry Christams and Happy New Year!
Thank you. I enjoyed the preview a.d look forward to the release. Have a Merry Christmas!
Only Mr. Moore’s art could draw me away from the festive preparations for my Family’s Christmas. I see you have done it again,Sir. I don’t want to ever grow used to the surprise and joy I receive when reading your work. May you continue to inform, amaze, and move we humble, grateful fans. (I got a bunch ‘o Family coming any minute)…Happy Holiday’s Christopher, and Well Done. 🙂 j’adore. c’est magnifique!
I loved the first two chapters. Thank you for the gift. Merry Christmas.
Bravo!!! 2 great chapters to distract me from the mess that is Christmas. But why do Bowler Hats always appear on bad guys?
Merci, mon amour! That was delicious, and a much better dessert than anything else we might have eaten here at the family homestead. You truly are, as they say, magnifique!
C’est magnifique! I was immediately drawn into the story, wrapped up in the characters. Thanks for the Christmas sneak-peek, Christopher, but it’s going to be really hard to wait until April. And the Art Deco Mucha-style cover — why didn’t you go with that one? It’s beautiful…
only 96 more days! WOOT!
am loving it already and will be studying up on great painters of paris during the wait!
thanks for a great christmas present – now for an early spring!
It’s great! You drew me right in; I excited to be able to get it in April. Thanks for the preview!

Thank you St. Chris
Thank you! Cannot wait to get my hands on this!
Fantastically Chris! I just love you Chris! Thank you so much, what a perfect Christmas gift……and my favorite. Painfully awaiting the opportunity to hold the book in my hands, and terribly excited at the thought of spending time with you while on tour! You are a gift….
When’s the tour?! When’s the tour?!
Please come to the south-bay, or Santa Monica, Pasadena, LA, or wherever!
I haven’t not seen you since the Bite Me tour in Pasadena and I need more Moore! Your work is incredible, and this is one of your best so far!
Please keep me updated on any tour schedule!
I can’t wait! You are a terrible tease!
I have marked my calendar and will be counting the days.
i know what i want for my birthday!!!!
excellent as always.. I’ll wait for the rest, if I must
this chapters remind me of woody allen’s “midnight in paris”…
but chris is chris.
luv ya, authorguy.
hmm…. reminds me of Fool.
little point, road at base of monmarte in area of pigalle and moulin rouge is blvd de clichy. ave de clichy is west of there between place de clichy and port de clichy metro stops. paris streets are most confusing how they change names so many times. the area etween blanche and abbesses metro stops is so wonderfully alive and a little bit scary!
The street names were changed a number of times during writing the book. Often the copy editor would change them to conform to the modern map, while I might have had used an 1890s map. I think what resulted was fair mish-mash of street names, but I think we got close. Likewise the Arrondisements get mixed around, as some of the neighborhoods, like the Marais or the Latin Quarter, aren’t completely contained in one Arrondisement, or one might be in one Arrondisment, yet the station one walks into is “technically” in the next. I’m sure Parisians and historians will have a field day with the inaccuracies, but there have been a lot of changes in Paris over the last 120 years, and to fact check every setting would have been close to impossible (because many, like Gauguin’s apartment, later on in the book, are simply conjured from imagination so I might make a comment about hearing the orchestra at the Follies Bergere playing into the wee hours). Art, she is a fickle bitch, no?
thanks for the reply! i didn’t even think about the possibility of the names changing over the last century or so – dohh.
i only really noticed it because we were staying near parc monceau and i made a day out of running around the big butte. everyone likes a big butte. montmarte has a throbbing, messy vitality, that i really never found anywhere else in my brief time there. there’s definitely vitality and messes, but nowhere is it all rolled up into a perfectly pungent p-word patisserie, ooo-lah freakin’ lah! please have your way with ze beotch, as you are a true artiste, bien sur.
It’s brilliant! But.. you already knew that. I can’t wait for the rest of the book!
Oh my goodness! I was already sucked into the story and then BAM! the preview is over. 🙁 It’s going to be a long winter, waiting for April to come so I can get the book! Great job and please don’t ever stop writing! 🙂
My birthday is April 5th. Thanx Author Guy for the bitchinest b’day present in like… fer ever. You da best brutha!
See you in Milwaukee on 4/11. Can’t wait to read the rest of the book.
See you in Milwaukee on 4/11. Can’t wait to read the rest of the book!
Huzzah, Sir! Well done. Well done indeed!
Sitting in library today pouring over Chemistry notes for upcoming exam when I glanced over and saw Coyote’s paperback winking at me. Realized I hadn’t heard of any new CMoore books in awhile (went through a binge last spring where I read all in several months), so tearing myself away from ever-so-exciting Chemistry I Bing’d and voila! Sacre-Bleu is due!! Can’t wait…will be pre-ordering via public library ASAP!!
in a word: yay.
Wow. I cant wait for the rest. This is LOOOOOOOOOOOOng overdue!!!! I am so excited for this Chris
The English is smooth. It is brilliant. It is excellent canvas. All encompassing. I am so proud of you. And that blue goddess on the cover should be great 🙂
I’m looking forward to receiving my pre-ordered copy. I just hope that the paper quality is better than the acidic pulp your publisher used on your last several books. (The paper quality of those was disrespectful to the author, the reader, and to the book collector.)
