COLDBROOK, and many other updates

November 10th, 2010 • Posted in Book News, Movie News, Random Stuff |

COLDBROOK, my big science fiction zombie novel due from Corsair/Constable in the UK, has had its publication put back until January 2012.  Don’t worry, though, as next July sees the publication of ECHO CITY from Orbit UK.

Chris Golden and I have delivered our script for THE SECRET JOURNEYS OF JACK LONDON: THE WILD to Fox 2000.

The JACK LONDON series has sold in Germany and France, with more foreign rights interest all the time.

I’m currently working on a new novel for Orbit in the UK, as well as a couple of screenplays (one a collaboration), a collaborative YA novel, a couple of TV series proposals, some comics ideas, and another novel idea or two.  Oh, and there are some short stories screaming to be written, and a novella or two.  Never a dull moment, and that’s just how I like it.

The end of this month marks four years since I left my previous job at Monmouthshire County Council to write full time.  It remains the best decision I ever made, and I’ll write a longer post about what those four years brought, and what the next year or two might bring.  Exciting things are afoot.

    Is that just in the UK, or the US too? I don’t want to wait over a year for your next book…

    Tim, that’s exciting! As someone who dreams of the day when I can leave a county council job for writing, I can’t wait to hear about how it all worked out for you.

    I’ve been listening to you on Constructing Horror. Interesting stuff.

    All the best,

    Jason, ECHO CITY is out in the US now, UK next year. The JACK LONDON book is out in the US next March. I think my novelisation of THE CABIN IN THE WOODS is out early next year too, as well as a new Hidden Cities book with Chris Golden. Fear not, plenty of new books due out next year on both sides of the Atlantic.

    Tina, thanks! That last day in work was a good one. Most people gave me good luck cards, bottles of wine, all the good stuff. One dick handed me my last month’s mobile phone bill. Huh!
