The third book in the AUTUMN series is now available from Thomas Dunne Books/St Martin’s Griffin.
Trapped between the military and the dead, the remaining survivors carve out a fragile and uncertain existence. In a moment of madness their safety and security is jeopardised. All hope is gone, but in the rotting shadows of the past, they find the key to what remains of their future . . .
Hard to believe, but it’s nine years since the first version of AUTUMN appeared online. And now, four sequels, half a million free downloads, a movie and a free audio adaptation later, this week the book is getting its first ‘proper’ mainstream release from Thomas Dunne Books / St Martin’s Griffin in the US (26th October) and Gollancz in the UK (28th). You can find out more about the new editions by clicking the covers below.
To celebrate this long-overdue re-release, I’m giving away 5 copies of the brand new UK hardback. To enter for a chance to win a copy, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject ‘Spread the Infection’. One email per person please, but you can earn yourself an extra entry or two by sharing this on Facebook or re-tweeting it on Twitter. The winners will be chosen at random and you have until Tuesday 2nd November to enter. As always with my competitions, my decision is final! Good luck!
I’m heading out on a short break with the family now before the Autumn book signings start next week, so please bear with me if you send emails, ask questions etc. over the coming days. I’ll get back to you as quickly as I can.
And just to answer a question I’ve been asked several times recently – yes I will be selling signed copies of the book through www.infectedbooks.co.uk. I’ll be holding my annual signed book sale in November. Watch this space!
PLEASE NOTE – the competition is now closed. Winners will be announced shortly.
The US mass-market paperback edition of HATER is now available. If you’d prefer to get your hands on a hardback and you don’t yet have a copy, shoot over to Amazon.com where it’s currently on offer for an incredibly low $8.78 – a 60% saving!
I’ll be launching a new HATER website very soon, and the ‘Projekt’ you might have heard me talking about will finally be revealed. In the meantime, here’s a photograph (courtesy of Gavin Brogan) to whet your appetite…
And finally… the publisher’s advance mailing has begun and the first reviews of DOG BLOOD are starting to appear. I wouldn’t recommend reading them if you haven’t read HATER, but for those of you who have…
- A Will to Act
- Alternative Worlds
I posted this a couple of days ago on my Facebook page, but I’m not sure how many of you saw it. If you missed it, here’s the cover for the US hardcover edition of DOG BLOOD, out 8th June.
By the way, I’ve been making a few changes to this site (in my usual ham-fisted way). As well as managing to delete the last couple of months worth of forum posts (sorry about that – can anyone who understands MySql help me get them back?) I’ve also set up a new announcement mailing list. You can find a sign-up box on the right-hand sidebar, below the new releases. I promise I won’t fill your inboxes with rubbish, instead I plan to just use the list to announce release dates, breaking news etc. etc. Please sign up if you have a few seconds.
