Angry Robot Signs Chuck Wendig in Two Book Deal

chuck_wendigAngry Robot is thrilled to announce the acquisition of two new urban fantasy books from pen-monkey Chuck Wendig.

The first acquisition, Bloody Brides, is a sequel to Wendig’s 2013 title – the first Mookie Pearl book - The Blue Blazes, and will be published in early 2015. The as-yet unnamed second title will follow later in the year.

The deal for worldwide English rights was negotiated by Angry Robot Senior Editor Lee Harris and Stacia Decker of the Donald Maass Literary Agency.

Chuck said “PLEASE CALL THE POLICE THEY WON’T LET ME LEAVE THEY JUST KEEP MAKING ME WRITE THESE BOOKS AND I HAVEN’T SEEN THE LIGHT OF DAY IN TWO YEARS — oh! I’m sorry, what I mean to say is, Angry Robot is full of awesome people bringing awesome books into the world and I’m happy that they’re continuing to afford me the opportunity to reduce the overall quality of their stable of authors. I am, as always, excited to continue my relationship with these charming robot curators of genre fiction.”

Lee said “We are always delighted to read a new Chuck Wendig book, and doubly-delighted when we get to publish them. This makes six books for Chuck with Angry Robot, and long make it continue!”

Chuck has written too much. He should probably stop. Give him a wide berth, as he might be drunk and untrustworthy. He currently lives in the wilds of Pennsyltucky with wife, dog, and newborn progeny. You can find him at his website, terribleminds, where he is busy dispensing dubious writing advice and unstable publishing wisdom. Previous books with Angry Robots: the Miriam Black novels Blackbirds, Mockingbird, and 2014’s The Cormorant and the first Mookie Pearl title, The Blue Blazes.
