Chuck Wendig, author of Blackbirds, which we reviewed just yesterday as luck would have it, has just signed a new two book deal with Angry Robot Books.
Via their newsletter:
A New Two-Book Deal for Chuck Wendig!
Angry Robot, the award-winning publisher of cutting-edge SF, F, and WTF?! fiction is delighted to announce that a new deal has been signed and sealed with rising star Chuck Wendig.
About the Deal
Chuck's first Angry Robot novel, Blackbirds, only hit the bookshelves for the first time a few weeks ago, but the response has already been so strong that Angry Robot moved quickly to sign him up for another two books.
The World English Rights deal, negotiated between Angry Robot editor Lee Harris and Stacia Decker of the Donald Maas Literary Agency, is for:
The Blue Blazes - the first in a new urban fantasy series in which lovable thug Mookie Pearl must contend with the criminal underworld, the supernatural underworld, a new drug that makes the invisible visible, and a rebellious teen daughter who opposes him at every turn.
Cormorant - a new tale of Miriam Black, the third book in a series that begins with Blackbirds and continues with Mockingbird (September 2012).
Both new titles are scheduled for publication in 2013.
Congratulations Chuck. I can't wait for the new novels.
