Massive Halloween event announcement

waterstones1I’m very, very, VERY excited to announce that Infected Books will be taking over the huge High Street Birmingham branch of Waterstones this Halloween (actually Halloween eve, but it’s close enough). You are cordially invited to join Wayne Simmons, myself, and other Infected Books alumni as we launch new books (Wayne and Andre Duza‘s VOODOO CHILD), read from new, as yet unannounced books, and maybe even reveal why 2016 is shaping up to be the year of Infected Books.

This is going to be an absolutely brilliant evening, so put it in your diaries and please do come along if you can (Halloween-themed fancy dress optional but strongly encouraged). Keep an eye on the Waterstones event page here. Things kick off at 7:00pm on Friday 30 October.

UPDATED VENUE – CLICK HERE FOR INFORMATION

Wayne and I will also be appearing at the Bristol Horror Con at the Future Inn, Bristol a couple of weeks earlier on 17 October. Filling the space vacated by Wayne’s short-lived but already much-missed SCARDiff, it’s another one I’m really looking forward to. More details can be found here. Update 11 October – unfortunately Wayne and I are now unable to attend the Bristol event. Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause.

Simmons and Moody on tour!

Regular readers here will know that Wayne Simmons and I often sign as a double-act. Wayne’s a good friend and a superb writer, and it’s always a pleasure to be in his company. We’ve been working on some events for the remainder of this year, and it’s starting to feel like we’re going out on tour! David Naughton-Shires – one of our resident graphics experts – got over-excited and produced the great banner I’ve reproduced above, and with his help we’ll be hitting the road equipped with T-shirts, flyers, flags and whatever else we can get our hands on. All the dates are UK only at the moment (cost and time prohibits any overseas trips right now), so if you’re around, please come along…

  • 18th August (note – that’s a week on Saturday!) – Waterstones, Hereford
  • 14th September – 80’s Alternative Festival – Billing Aquadrome, Northampton
  • 31st October – Halloween at Waterstones Cheltenham (with Adam Baker, Joseph D’Lacey and other authors to be announced)
  • 2nd November – Autumn: Horror in the East – Aspire Centre, Lowestoft
  • 24th November – Waterstones, Hull
  • 8th December – Waterstones Swindon

And there will hopefully be more dates added. If you’re interested in us coming and signing closer to you, please either get in touch or, if you’re on good terms with your local bookstore, ask them to get in touch direct.

Iain McKinnon and Travis Adkins joint book signing

Always happy to help out a couple of mates…

On Saturday 14th May, Forbidden Planet Glasgow will host a joint signing by Iain McKinnon (Domain of the Dead) and Travis Adkins (Twilight of the Dead, After Twilight). I believe it’s Travis’ first visit to the area, and by the looks of the poster below, it promises to be a great event which no self-respecting Scottish zombie fan can afford to miss!
