Phoenix ComicCon Schedule, Zer0es News, And More


First up —

Hey, Zeroes got a nice review from Publisher’s Weekly:

(link for subscribers only)

“Wendig (Blackbirds) piles on the thrills and chills in this fast-paced near-future novel about human frailty and inhuman ambition. … Wendig wields the tools of suspense and tension with skill. His large cast of characters is entertaining, the moments of horror are sharp and chilling, and the story races to a breathless conclusion.”

Plus, a hella great quote by Christopher Golden:

“Chuck Wendig is one of the most talented genre-fiction magicians we have and ZEROES reveals him at the height of his powers. Razor sharp characters highlight a paranoid, relentless thriller about outcast hackers and the malleable line between renegade and hero.” — Christopher Golden, New York Times bestselling author of TIN MEN

And one by Richard Kadrey:

“Zer0es is a taut, complex techno-thriller with something much darker and deeper at its core.” — Richard Kadrey, author of the SANDMAN SLIM series

I’ll be doing a small tour in support. Check my Appearances page! More dates coming.

The Harvest Launch: Let’s Play Books

I celebrate the launch of THE HARVEST (the final book of The Heartland series) at Let’s Play Books! Facebook event page here. Tuesday, July 14th, 6:00PM, Emmaus, PA. It’s a great bookstore for children and young adults (with a spare adult books section). B-Dub loves it.

The Harvest comes out that same day.

You can buy signed copies right from the store.

Or you can pre-order the e-book here.

In fact, I’ll tell you what —

If you buy a signed, printed copy from Let’s Play Books, I’ll give you a Kindle version of The Harvest. Because getting e-books with physical books is awesome, that’s why.


The WRITE STUFF Storybundle is still going strong.

Twelve books. Name your own price. Determine how much of your money goes to the bundler, the author, and charity. Includes my own 30 Days in the Word Mines.
