As I said last time, I’m going to start posting general updates on my writing projects every Wednesday.
I’d said that my screenplay adaptation of Pressure would be complete and sent off to Identity Films before this update…and that turned out NOT to be a shameful lie! The script is indeed done and has indeed been sent to the producer. What will happen next…?
The edits for my young adult novel I Have A Bad Feeling About This have been officially approved and the book is off to the production department. I don’t think there’s a firm publication date set, but it should be 1st or 2nd quarter 2014. Don’t hold me to that. I’ll give you a date you can hold me to soon.
And, from what I’ve heard, the hardcover editions of Dead Clown Barbecue have finally shipped! So if you ordered one, start camping out beside your mailbox, because your neighborhood is filled with thieves! The digital edition is completely ready to go with just a click of the “Publish” button, but I’m going to wait until I hear that people have started receiving their limited edition copies. 8/1/2013 at the latest.
I’m going to be writing a short horror screenplay for a project that I’m not allowed to talk about. I know that some of you HATE it when people say “Oooooh, look at me! I’m working on something I’m not allowed to talk about!” but I think my gag order will be in effect for quite a while even after the script is done. (No, I haven’t started it yet.)
No progress on Kumquat or Wolf Hunt II because I was finishing the Pressure screenplay and then clearing out various other small items. However, Wolf Hunt II will take full advantage of the speed of publishing in the digital age, so you won’t be waiting as long as you might think.
I’m spending the weekend at Necon, and then my dad will be in town for a few days after that, so my next update will NOT contain any statements like “Gosh! I can’t believe how much writing I’ve done!”
