THEM OR US – audiobook out today

I’m thrilled to announce that the audiobook version of THEM OR US is out today. Released by Blackstone Audio, and available in a variety of formats, it’s again narrated by Gerard Doyle who did such a great job with his readings of HATER and DOG BLOOD.

The book’s available from AMAZON and all the usual outlets, and can be downloaded from AUDIBLE and ITUNES.

Special thanks to Shawn who campaigned for this release. I don’t know if they bowed to your pressure or whether the book was in the pipeline anyway, but thanks all the same!

Nominations for HATER

Sorry it’s been so quiet around here this last week. I’ve been flat out (honest!) and you’ll start seeing what I’ve been up to before long.

I’ve been made aware of a couple of awards that HATER has been nominated for. Firstly, RAGE, the French edition of the book, is up for the prestigious Masterton award, and you can read more about it here on the Milady blog.

Secondly, HATER has been nominated in the Best Zombie Book (Fiction) category of the Mail Order Zombie Dead Letter Awards (it’s not technically a zombie novel, I know, but hey…!). Please click here to vote and pick your favourite zombie books and films of the last 12 months.

In similar news, Mihai, owner of the very popular Dark Wolf’s Fantasy Reviews blog, listed HATER as number three in his top ten books of 2009. Mihai also listed Danny McCoyne as his favourite male character of last year! Cheers Mihai.

And finally, I was really pleased to hear that the audiobook of HATER recently won an ‘earphones award’ from AudioFile Magazine. For those of you who enjoyed the audiobook (you can download it from Audible and iTunes amongst others if you haven’t yet heard it), you’ll be pleased to hear that DOG BLOOD will also be released as an audiobook by Blackstone Audio on 8th June.

A few September releases

Orion books in the UK have released a mass-market (i.e. cheaper!) edition of HATER which, from today, you’ll find in supermarkets, airports etc. etc. You can also get it online from Amazon.co.uk, Waterstones, Play.com and the Book Depository amongst others.

German readers can now get their hands on the first publication anywhere in the world of Autumn: Disintegration (Herbst: Zerfall). Whilst this is good news for readers in Germany and Austria, it’s not so good for those of you who’ve been waiting more than patiently for the US and UK releases of the book. I’ll be honest (as I’ve had a few angry emails about the subject recently), Disintegration is still a long way off for the rest of the world. I’ve updated the FAQ page of this site with a revised explanation and it’s something I’ll talk more about next week.

Finally, the audio book of HATER I mentioned here is now available to download from Audible.com.

HATER audiobooks and ebooks

Just a quick post to announce that the audiobook edition of HATER is now available from Blackstone Audio. Also, the book is available in a number of different ebook formats from various retailers:

Amazon Kindle (US only)
Mobipocket (US, Canada, Mexico only)

UPDATE – You can now listen to a sample of the HATER audiobook on the Blackstone Audio website.

UPDATE 2 – US readers can now download the HATER ebook from Barnes & Noble (at a much lower price than elsewhere).

More editions of HATER…

As I reported previously, the Polish edition of HATER – AMOK – is released by Amber tomorrow. I thought I’d give you a quick update on several other editions which are coming soon…

On 5th June, Milady will release RAGE, the French edition of the book. You can pre-order it here from Amazon.fr.

Then, on 1st August, Goldmann releases IM WAHN, the German language edition (which can be pre-ordered here).

Finally, also on 1st August, an unabridged (9 hour!) audio book will be available from Blackstone Audio. More details as they become available!
