Now it can be told ...



I've been waiting for a few bits of news to become "official" so I can crow a bit here at blogpocalypse. Now I can share at least one of these news items. As many of you already know, I went on a tangent into a new genre with a new publisher (Touchstone) and I tried my hand at some post apocalypse fiction -- as well as some vampire and werewolf stuff coming this September.

But you didn't really think I was going to leave crime writing, did you? I'm happy to report that Bleak House Books will be publishing my next crime novel The Deputy later this year. I'm excited as hell. The team at Bleak House is tops.
The Deputy is a short, tight pulpy little book that I'm kinda-sort of proud about. I was thrilled when the Bleaksters shared my enthusiasm. More as developments unfold ...

V.G. Congrats! I've been hyped about any news on your next pulp and this just makes my day. Any idea on a release?

Victor Gischler said...

Thanks, guys.

Wade, I think we're looking at August.

By the way, the muscle car from an earlier post is featured in the book!

Hell yeah! I've been waiting for this news ever since you first mentioned working on a novel that featured, among other things, muscle cars. Good to hear it will be out this year, and from the fine folks at Bleak House to boot!

Congrats!

"Short, tight pulpy little book" sounds perfect. Congratulations!

Fred Blosser said...

Holy Hell! Is Bleak House trying to corner the marker on Brilliant and Cool authors?

Is that at all fair to other publishing houses?

That's great news, Victor. I can't wait.

Craig Zablo said...

Sounds like something I'd like!

Victor Gischler said...

Thanks, everyone.

I haven't written a novel is first person POV since Gun Monkeys, so that's another reason I found writing DEPUTY to be a fun experience. I'm already discussing a possible screenplay with my agent.
