MURIEL – a free zombie short story for the weekend

By way of apology for not posting for a couple of weeks, I thought I’d share MURIEL with you – a nice little zombie short which was originally published in the SFX Magazine Zombie Special a couple of years back.

Muriel coverWhen the dead rise, a young survivor, left home-alone, follows all the rules to outlive his neighbours and establish his post-apocalyptic credentials. But life after the end of the world proves to be far more difficult than they made it look in the movies…

Click here to read the story on WATTPAD, and I hope you enjoy it. And don’t forget, you can also read TRUST at WATTPAD too – the entire novel, available free.

Things have been deathly quiet here for the last couple of weeks, but that should change in the very near future. Pre-order details about the AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION re-release will be announced in the coming days, as well as details of some new events, and interesting updates on a few long-gestating projects.

Until then, have a good weekend!

    This is old, but I’ve been writing my butt off… just not ready/able to share yet. One new novel in the can (currently with my agent), and 34,000 words into the first draft of another.

    i write when i’ve got time, the most i’ve written in one day is 4000 words and it gave me eye strain, so now i limit myself to 2000 at most. once i’ve finished reading the devil rides out i’ll probably read trust
