Three Extra issues Makes A Put up – Chuck Wendig: Terribleminds

Two extra issues: first up, I completed the primary draft of my subsequent horror novel, THE STAIRCASE IN THE WOODS, and it rolled up at simply over 100,000 phrases. Which for me is fairly slim! I don’t assume I’ve written an grownup novel that quick since… perhaps Invasive? Even Zer0es was like, 125k.

I anticipate it’ll come out within the first half of 2025 — April, I believe, is the present plan, however that may change relying on a complete unholy host of things. So don’t quote me on it. So! Its off to the editor, Tricia at Del Rey, and she or he’s the bee’s knees and can know how one can kick it into its supreme nightmare type.

Additionally, I’ve had my pitch authorised for my subsequent center grade, tentatively titled DO NOT OPEN THAT DOOR. (It’s bizarre how my books have a tendency to hold little issues over from their earlier narrative entrants — and I assume right here the parity is in structure. Staircases! Doorways! Don’t go up them! Don’t open them! Ahhhhh!) I don’t need to say extra about it but, besides it’s not likely explicitly horror, however is supposed to evoke the eerie fantasy of stuff like Labyrinth, or Miyazaki’s work, or Neverending Story. That otherworld type of eerie, ? Now I assume I’ve to write down it? Are we certain there isn’t only a method to attain into my mind and squish it onto paper? Nicely, dangit.

Additionally, third factor is, the anthology I introduced being part of earlier, New Demons, I sadly am pulling out of at current. I’ll let if that adjustments. I’m nonetheless writing my story for The Stand anthology, and I believe it’s fairly all proper (set in Colorado!) so extra as I do know it.
