Angry Robot signs award-winning Aussie author Marianne de Pierres

Angry Robot press release

Meet AR’s latest female author, Marianne de Pierres

Hi folks,

Welcome to yet another good-news-sharing email from Robot HQ. As you can tell, we’ve been keeping Lee locked away working on forthcoming books, and even though he complains that he’s hungry and there’s a lack of sunshine in his cell, it’s proving very worthwhile! Following our recent announcement that Anna Kashina has joined the Robot Army, we are thrilled to have another fantastic female writer for you: Marianne de Pierres.

Here’s the details:

Genre-busting ‘Peacemaker’ series

Angry Robot is thrilled to announce the acquisition of two genre-busting books from Marianne de Pierres.  The World English and Translation rights deal was negotiated by Senior Editor Lee Harris and Curtis Brown’s Tara Wynne. The first of this two-book series, Peacemaker, will be released in May 2014, and the as-yet-untitled sequel will follow in 2015.

A true crossover, Peacemaker is a cracking combination scifi, fantasy, western, and crime.

Quotable Quotes

Marianne de Pierres: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Angry Robot team with the Peacemaker series as I truly admire the kind of books they publish. Not to mention that Trent Jamieson, Kaaron Warren, Lee Battersby and Jo Anderton are some of my favourite Australian speculative fiction authors. It will also be great to work with Lee Harris again, who I first met as editor of Hub Magazine when he published one of my Glitter Rose stories. Angry Robot’s thinking is modern and explorative and a blast of pure oxygen in speculative fiction publishing.”

Lee Harris: “I’ve been a great admirer of Marianne’s work, ever since I started reading her brilliantSentients of Orion series back in 2007. I’m absolutely thrilled to welcome her to the Angry Robot family and I can’t wait for you all to read Peacemaker.”

Tara Wynne: “Marianne’s Peacemaker series and Angry Robot seem a perfect match. I look forward to nurturing this new relationship and to the books’ success.”
