Cast your minds back a few years, and some of you might remember ISOLATION – a short film project I announced along with Will Wright but which, for various reasons, never made it to screen (though I hope it still might). I’m pleased to announce the release of an adaptation of my original screenplay. You can pre-order it now, and it’ll be available to download from tomorrow (20th).

ISOLATION (which also includes four additional zombie short stories – two of which were previously unpublished) is a companion novella to THE COST OF LIVING. There are no connections between the stories, but they’ll appear together in a combined print edition later this year. Here’s the ISOLATION blurb:

IsolationKeith’s in his early twenties. No girlfriend, no hobbies, no future. He spends his days working in an office and his evenings, weekends and just about all his free time looking after his alcoholic dad.

And then the zombie apocalypse changes everything.

Suddenly Keith’s free. For the first time in a long time, he’s got nothing to worry about (apart from several hundred thousand reanimated corpses heading his way).

But then he meets Anna, and everything changes again. Cocky, cool, confident… she’s everything Keith isn’t. Holed-up together in an isolated bungalow, besieged by the living dead, will they survive, or will they tear each other apart before the dead can get anywhere near?

Download ISOLATION for the paltry sum of $2.99/£1.99 from AMAZON.COM | AMAZON.CO.UK | AMAZON.DE | AMAZON.ES | AMAZON.IT | AMAZON.CA | AMAZON.COM.AU

Cover art is again by the brilliant David Shires and, as with THE COST OF LIVING, I’m experimenting with Amazon exclusivity for now. If you want the ePub version of the book, simply buy the Kindle edition, then send me a copy of your receipt and I’ll email an ePub version back to you asap.

I’m very proud of this one. I hope you enjoy it.

    I’m experimenting with Amazon exclusivity at the moment (I don’t like it, but I’m trying to make the most of the stranglehold they have on ebooks at the moment). I have an ePub version available for Nook. Check the link at the end of the blog post and drop me a line…

  • David Moody

    I will definitely still be writing, Kellie. I just think it’s time to give zombies a rest. I hope to have a new novel called STRANGERS out in November… there’s an element of vampires to that one. It’s very nasty. After that… well, I don’t yet know how to fully describe THE SPACES BETWEEN. It’s going to be a heck of a series!

  • David Moody

    Just taking a break from the living dead for a while, Margaret. I’ve got plenty of other horrors to explore…!

  • David Moody

    I haven’t forgotten Kobo, Karen! I just answered a similar question, so please forgive the cut and paste which follows:
