Time for a client round-up:
Emma Adams has just been commissioned by Chol Theatre to write Northern Big Board, a play set in the swimming pool. It’s about fear (high diving board).
Mike Carey’s thriller The Demon Code came out last week from Little, Brown. He’s delivered the last draft of his $30m movie for Slingshot/Intrepid, Silent War, which is about to go out to cast.
Stephen Davis has delivered a cracking new US television pilot, a political thriller called Pilgrim.
Daniel Depp is working on the new draft of his new novel.
Anne Perry’s Sunless Sea comes out next week, and her new hardcover Midnight at Marble Arch next month. These have had excellent reviews, and two have said she’s at the top of her form. Her biography, In Search of Anne Perry, was launched last week and went to #3 on the bestseller list in New Zealand.
Simon Scarrow’s Praetorian came out in paperback a couple of weeks ago. Look out for a new series of e-book novellas coming out in the next couple of months. His new book about the siege of Malta, Sword and Scimitar, comes out in October; a book which shines a big light on a turning point in the Muslim influence on Europe.
Catherine Webb’s new urban fantasy Stray Souls is out in October, and she’s delivered the next one; headlong, exciting storytelling.
Tim Wilson’s The Secret Life of William Shakespeare is selling very well and getting great reviews. His The Taste of Sorrow has been optioned to the BBC.
