More Fine Dining at Matt Wallace’s Sin du Jour!

The first in Matt Wallace’s hilarious Sin du Jour series—Envy of Angels—comes out in a month’s time. When we commissioned Matt to write this, plus the sequel (Lustlocked—January 2016), we always hoped that others would get as big a kick out of them as we do. And it seems they are. As the reviews start to roll in, it’s becoming obvious that Matt’s series is something special (seriously—go read a sample here).

So, it’s with great delight that we’re able to announce that—even before Book 1 is out—we’ve asked Matt to write books 3 and 4 for us! To no-one’s great surprise (because Matt is awesome, and he loves these books just as much as us) he said yes!

Pride’s Spell and Idle Ingredients will both be published in 2016.

Matt asked us to tell you:

“I’m having more fun writing Sin du Jour than I did when I was quality control officer in that cupcake, fireworks, and ninja star factory back in ’03, and I’m thrilled to be continuing the series with Tor.com Publishing. They’re the most innovative crew of book weirdos I’ve encountered in all my travels. I want to thank my spectacular editor, Lee Harris, associate publisher Irene Gallo, and the rest of the team. On to glory!”

Senior Editor Lee Harris said:

“It’s so hard finding humorous fantasy or science fiction. Humour is so subjective—perhaps even moreso than mainstream SF/F. Matt’s one of those rare writers who can make a story exciting and funny. Publishers Weekly said that Envy of Angels will leave readers ‘grinning and hoping for more stories featuring the Sin du Jour gang.’ Well, rest assured, we’re bringing you more!”
