WEREWORLD jacket art



OK, so it has been a while since I posted any news on here but, as I mentioned in the last post, the lure of Twitter is a powerful one. If you're looking for updates of what I'm working on that's the best place to check - follow me as curtisjobling

In my defence it's been pretty hectic here, with pace picking up on WEREWORLD. Went down to meet with the Puffin Sales and Marketing team last month, expecting to meet with 4 or 5 people around the table, and it was more like the Imperial Senate from Star Wars. There must have been 30 folk from various international territories around the table, which was thrilling to see as they're all right behind WEREWORLD. Book One is pretty much edited and am now 27,000 words into Book Two. If I could write these stories all day and all night I would be a happy man.

Here's the cover art, above, for you to have a sneaky peek at. Love to hear thoughts!

RAA RAA is rolling into production finally - first five weeks shooting completed now and it's looking rather luscious. Lovely to see animators working with smiles on their faces while they get to know a new cast of characters. The sets and puppets look awesome, thanks to the modelmakers at Chapman Studio and the puppetmakers at Mackinnon & Saunders. And yes, the name did change from RAH RAH to RAA RAA - on account of that original name being taken by a certain international pop mogul.

Bada Bling!

Which pop mogul? I'm not down with the kids any more!

Paula Abdul of all people - owns the (c) on Rah Rah, in a cheerleading capacity I believe. So we had to change the name.

Nice werewolf, very glad that we aren't being subjected to the dumb's werewolves from Twilight and True Blood (very disappointed in True Blood) - very nice, eye-catching cover! Will look awesome on bookshelves. :-)

*Yikes - my captcha was 'giganips' - that has to be against some kind of law... ;-)
