Gollancz Festival 2015

This! This! I will be here! I’m happily tapping away through über secret fantasy novel, having a lot of fun with it. Think it’s gonna be a long ‘un, though: already looking like it’ll end up bigger than any of the Ketty Jay books! But it’s epic fantasy, right? Whatchagonnado? I’m hoping to get a […]

My God, it’s an Update!!!

I know, right? But here it is, and here’s the skinny. First up, I’M ON TWITTER. You thought it’d never happen, but it did. Befollow me on @_ChrisWooding_ where you can hear splurts of random communications involving whatever I just tripped over that morning. It’s better than waiting for my tri-yearly posts up on here.

Velocity cover and Gollancz Festival 2015!

A story of reckless ambition, unshakable friendship and the perils of fame, set in a broken future… Cassica and Shiara have grown up in an outback settlement far from anywhere. Life’s hard where they live, but these two girls have a dream. Cassica is a talented driver; Shiara her engineer and navigator. Between them they’ve cobbled […]

I live!

… not that you’d know it from the amount of updates on this site! But hey, now I’m here, I have a whole bunch of nothing to tell you anyway! Yay! When I was a kid, I used to just bang down the first good idea I had, write a book of it, sling it […]

VELOCITY is done!

La la la, done and delivered and getting edited now, so all in time for a mid-2015 release (in the UK) which is all still on as far as I know! Blurb and more details to follow nearer the time, there’s no point getting you all excited six months early… To tide you over, here’s […]

Malice Movie (But Not As You Might Think), Velocity, stuff like that

So, I’ve been wasting all my time writing a movie of Malice and everything, and it turns out someone’s already got there first! Specifically, some rather amazing young people from Israel who’ve spent a year making their own film of my book. I am totally awed and humbled by the creativity and effort of these 10-11 […]

Gollancz Festival 2014

  Gollancz are having their own mini-festival and I, of course, shall be there! Come by!

Steampunk Festival and, uh-oh, New Book News!

SO! NEWS! First up, my trip to Sweden for the SweCon Steampunk Festival in Gävle. It runs from June 27th-29th, and I’ll be doing, like, a ton of panels and interviews and talking about The Haunting of Alaizabel Cray (if I can remember what happened in it!) and Retribution Falls and all things steampunky. I will also be […]

SILVER Released in US March 25th

    Now that is one sexy cover. If only I had a larger version of it. Allow me to quote the starred review it got in Booklist (spoilers ahoy – if you were gonna buy it anyway, don’t read): “A couple of boys on a biology field trip uncover a silver creature with chitin markings […]

Your tri-monthly update is here!

Y’know, even though I have the excuse of being born before the age of social media sapped all meaning out of everything, I’m beginning to suspect I’m a bit slow at this blogging lark. But you’ve all been very patient, and as I’ve just turned 37 I’m literally likely to die at any minute, so here’s […]
