So, this is Christmas.
And I’ve got a new book out, co-written with none other than David Moody (AUTUMN, HATER).
Grab it right here at the special festive price of 99p/ 99c.
HO HO HO!
If there’s one man who knows his zombies, it’s fellow horror hack, David Moody. His novel, AUTUMN, was one of the first of a new wave of zombie horror fiction hailing from the early zeroes that seems more popular now than ever. Along with Brian Keene, who released his seminal zombie novel THE RISING around the same time, Moody is credited as being one of the godfathers of the sub-genre. And with latest book, THE COST OF LIVING – released just today – Moody’s gone back to his roots.
Most folks who are regulars to the site will know that fellow hack, David Moody, and I are something of a double-act within the world of genre fiction. Maybe it’s our shared fascination with the end of the world, or a tendency to write about a certain grey-faced bogeyman, but for one reason or another we’ve found ourselves doing a lot of events together and, needless to say, have become very good friends over the years.
What you may not know (although I do shout about it all the time in interviews and the like) is that I first met Dave as a fan of his work. I’ve got a signed copy of Dave’s debut novel, STRAIGHT TO YOU, that’s dated April 2005 (the book itself is a first print hardback published in 1996). And while I thoroughly enjoyed it back then, the rewrite, released just today through Infected Books, is a different beast altogether.
More awesomeness coming up on the Wayne Simmons Fan Page…
Following on from the Pitch & Page comp with my agent, Gina Panettieri, we’re delighted to have fellow apoc-horror guy David Moody over to the page to lead a ‘how-to’ workshop.
David, of course, is no stranger here: he’s the bestselling author of the AUTUMN and HATER series.
He’ll be hosting no fewer than 3 video-led workshops on the subject of writing characters.
