Want to be published by Infected Books?

There’s an intentional hole in the Infected Books Year of the Zombie schedule for October. As well as showcasing some of the best zombie authors out there, we wanted YoZ to include more than a little fresh meat. We’ve already had debut novellas from Gary Slaymaker and James Plumb, and we’re looking for a brand new writer to take the coveted Halloween slot.

Why not enter our PITCH AND PAGE competition? It’s open until 6 August 2016 and you can find full details on the Infected Books site or the Infected Books Facebook page. I’ll be judging the entries alongside literary agent Gina Panettieri and Michael Preissl of Voodoo Press and the winner will take their place alongside Rich Hawkins, Adam Baker, Iain Rob Wright, Mark Tufo and more. It’s a fabulous opportunity and I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with. Good luck!

Year of the Zombie month #6 – Little Monster

This month’s YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE offering is LITTLE MONSTER, the first novella from indie film director JAMES PLUMB. I’m really pleased to have James on board. As you know if you visit here regularly, I’ve been impressed by his movies NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD: RESURRECTION and KERB CRAWLERS, and I was fascinated to see how his brand of gritty, grimy horror translated to the written word. The answer to my question? Very well. Very well indeed. LITTLE MONSTER is a genuinely unsettling piece of horror fiction which brings yet another perspective to the YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE.

Your six-year-old daughter has been bitten by a zombie and now hungers for human flesh.

What do you do?

Do you double tap her in the brain?

Or do you become the ultimate enabler and feed her human flesh?

And where do you get human flesh from?

This is the dilemma that Gareth and Jen face with their beautiful daughter Ana.

What will they do?

And how far will it go?

And James being James, he’s put together a snappy little trailer for the book which you can see below.

LITTLE MONSTER is already tearing up the charts. Grab a copy from AMAZON.COM, AMAZON.CO.UK or AMAZON.DE.

And on the subject of YoZ, congratulations to last month’s author GARY SLAYMAKER. His novella – GERAINT WYN: ZOMBIE KILLER has been getting some great press (see image below).

Year of the Zombie month #5 – Geraint Wyn: Zombie Killer

Just another few weeks and I’ll be back updating this website more regularly with news (promise). In the meantime, allow me to introduce you to GERAINT WYN: ZOMBIE KILLER. Book #5 in Infected Books’ YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE is a cracking and very funny little tale which puts a uniquely Welsh perspective on the zombie apocalypse.

When Wayne and I sat down to plan YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE, we knew we wanted a mix of authors and a mix of very different stories. The last thing we wanted was twelve identical versions of the same tired zombie tropes. I think the contrast between each of the volumes we’ve so far released shows that there is a huge amount of variety available with the living dead.

It’s fair to say that GERAINT WYN: ZOMBIE KILLER is certainly different. It’s written by GARY SLAYMAKER, a very well-known Welsh TV and radio personality, and it’s great to have him onboard. The book is available from Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk and Amazon.de. Enjoy!
