HATER on IN THE SHEETS podcast

Hater (Thomas Dunne Books, 2009)I’m really excited that HATER is the first book to be featured on IN THE SHEETS, a new podcast from Brendan Cooney. Each month, Brendan and his audience will pick two books to read, review, and discuss. The author will introduce the book at the beginning of the month, then take part in an extended podcast towards the end of the month to answer any questions and meet the readers.

Brendan’s been a long-time supporter of my work, and I’m honoured he’s chosen HATER as the first book for this new venture. You can hear Brendan and I talking about the book on episode one.

This isn’t designed to be a passive experience, so please get involved. Join the IN THE SHEETS Goodreads group, subscribe to the podcast, and follow the discussion on Twitter and Facebook. I hope I get the chance to talk to some of you about the book. If you don’t make it this time, make sure you register for updates because I’ll be back in the next couple of months to do the same thing with ONE OF US WILL BE DEAD BY MORNING.

Follow me (please)

I know news about my books and film adaptations has been pretty thin on the ground recently, hopefully that’ll change in the near future. I’ve nothing to announce just yet, but there’s plenty of work going on in the background and a number of projects should soon see the light of day.

A picture of me as a zombie in the Autumn movie. For no other reason than to say if you don’t follow me, maybe I’ll follow you…

It seems that no matter how loud/frequently/often I mention things, though, someone always seems to miss the announcement. So the point of this brief post is simple: if you’re keen to keep up to date with my work, please follow me.

Also, please consider signing up to my mailing list. In the past I’ve been guilty of just using the list to sell books, but that’s changing too. And don’t worry – your data’s safe and won’t be shared/sold/used for any reason other than to keep you updated about my work.

Interview with ‘Moody’s Survivors’

Click here to join the new Facebook group – MOODY’S SURVIVORS – SPREAD THE INFECTION – which has become a hive of zombie- and book-related activity over the last couple of weeks.

The admins have just posted the results of a question and answer session I did with group members, so please head over and join up! (Thanks to Lee Hartnup, by the way, for the flattering photo!).

New Facebook Group

Just wanted to say thanks to Shawn ‘Rotting Corpse’ Riddle for setting up Moody’s Survivors – a new Facebook group for chatting about mine and other writers’ books. Please head over here and join!

It’s going to get very busy around here very soon, so this seems a good time to remind you that I can be followed on Facebook, Twitter, Goodreads and Friend Feed, so please sign up and keep updated.

Portrait of a Zombie

Like many of you, I’m a sucker for a good zombie movie, and bloody hell, this looks like it’s going to be a good zombie movie…

I recently spoke to the director of the film, Bing Bailey, who told me about a couple of publicity campaigns he has running at the moment. When the film’s Facebook fan page (click here) hits 10,000 fans, 10 randomly selected fans will receive limited edition posters signed by cast and crew members. Tell your Facebook friends and get them to sign up too. Ask them to leave a comment with your name because, when the page hits 100,000 fans, 5 props from the movie will be given to the people who’s names appear most. And who wouldn’t want to get a hold of a bloody meat cleaver, a slingshot, a bloody severed hand, a bloody straight jacket or some zombie eyes…?!

New forum

I’ve added a new forum to www.djmoody.co.uk which is integrated with this blog (to make it easier to discuss the stuff I post about). Please sign up (use the ‘Log In’ link above or the ‘Register’ link on the sidebar to the right) and get posting about Autumn, Hater, the upcoming movies or whatever else you want to discuss! When I post an entry here, a corresponding topic will automatically be created in the forum. You can either go straight to the forum or use the ‘comments’ function to get talking to me and other readers.

If you’d rather just read instead of write, you can find the contents of this blog syndicated to Facebook, Myspace, Goodreads and Amazon.

There’s plenty of good stuff coming up to talk about!
