Patrick Ness by Sean Moss - 2M ago

EXCITING ANNOUNCEMENT!! I am thrilled to say that my new novel is called “And The Ocean Was Our Sky”, will be lavishly illustrated by the brilliant Rovina Cai (she drew the eye in the picture), and will be out simultaneously next fall in the U.K., Ireland, USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. It started with me asking myself the question, “What if Moby Dick was told by the whale?” and got weirder from there… Hope you like it! 9-ish months to go.

I have so badly ignored this site.  I’ll really try harder, I promise.  Ugh, social media though, huh?  THE ADDICTION TO IT IS INSANE!!  I check it compulsively, even when I don’t want to, even (especially) when I’ve got work to do.  Today is my birthday, for example, and I couldn’t stop checking it for birthday stuff!  I’m a grown human!  Unfortunately, my OCD has found a foothold there and, despite having tried different approaches for years, nothing’s worked so far so:

I’m deactivating my Twitter account for, I don’t know, a week?  I’ve got amazing and cool stuff I want to tell you about, but for now, I need to give my brain some breathing space.  It’s like a washing machine in there.  The pointless aggro, the even more pointless compulsive checking. the ruination of my mood and state of mind.  Lovely, lovely folks there, this isn’t a judgement!  But this brain o’ mine needs a break.  At least until I can learn how to do it without driving myself around the bend.

Lots of cool news coming, though!  Stay tuned.  Pxx

Hello!  If you’re in America, I’ve just put up dates for my US book tour for Release in the Events section.  Come along!  All free!  I’ll be in New York, Philadelphia, DC/Chevy Chase, Chicago, Austin and Seattle in September.  A few dates with Adam Silvera, too!  Can’t wait to see you.

And shooting on the Chaos Walking movie starts next week!  Amazing, I know, after all this time.  Cast includes Tom Holland as Todd, Daisy Ridley as Viola, Mads Mikkelsen as Mayor Prentiss, Nick Jonas as Davy, Demian Bichir as Ben and Kurt Sutter as Cillian.  We’ve got an AMAZING actor for Aaron, too, but I’m not sure I’m allowed to say yet.  Movie comes out Spring 2019.  The Noise rises…

Hey, guys, I know, I’ve been remiss here, but I promise to keep it up better.  For now, the two big things are that A Monster Calls opens in the US (limited) on 23 December and wide on 6 January, and opens nationwide in the UK on 1 January.  Hope you like it!

And the complete series of Class is up now on BBC Three and BBC iPlayer!  Have a look.

Next year brings a new book, too, Release.  So lots to come!  Events and touring, too.

More soon about everything.  All best. Patrick

What a pleasure to find out that The Rest of Us Just Live Here is on the Carnegie Shortlist.  They’ve been so kind and generous to me, and I’m so thrilled Rest of Us is there!  If I win, I’d be the first to win a third medal, which would have been unthinkable when I started out.  All I wanted to do was get a book published!  And really, I’m from a small town where absolutely nobody famous comes from or anyone does anything like write books.  If I can get here from there, you really can, too, I mean it.

Double news is that I’m also on the Silver Inky longlist, which is the premier kid’s book premier book prize in Australia!  An amazing few days.  Check out all the shortlisted books, great places to find new reading…
