New signing date, a giveaway reminder, and some cool trivia

Couldn’t think of a better title for this post, so I just went with the facts! I’m going through one of those weird periods at the moment: loads of stuff happening behind the scenes, but I don’t have much to say in public just yet. So here’s a very brief update…

NEW SIGNING DATE WITH WAYNE SIMMONS

I’m really pleased to announce that I’ll be signing with Wayne again at Waterstones Cardiff on Saturday 21st April from 12:30pm. We had a great time there last October, and I’m looking forward to returning. Please come along if you’re able.

AUTUMN: AFTERMATH GIVEAWAY

I’ve had hundreds of entries so far – thanks! – and there’s now less than a week remaining to enter the giveaway. Click here to remind yourself how to enter. Already entered? Re-tweet this for an extra entry:

 

WALKING DEAD/HATER TRIVIA

Forgive me for shamelessly using the (justly deserved) popularity of The Walking Dead to promote my own work, but did you know showrunner Glen Mazzara wrote a script for the long-gestating, Guillermo del Toro-produced HATER movie? He mentions it in this interview.

Right, back to work. I finished writing a novel this morning. Can’t wait to tell you about it.

A few quick updates…

Got a few things to quickly tell you about today, and I thought adding them all to one blog post would be the best way to do it:

THE GOODREADS ZOMBIE GROUP

If you’re a Goodreads user and a zombie fan, why not join The Zombie Group? For one week from 24th October, Jonathan Maberry, Steven C Schlozman (author of The Zombie Autopsies) and I will be there talking about all things undead. By the way, I’m here on Goodreads if you want to add me as a friend.

ALL HALLOWS READ

Have you heard about this great initiative, brainchild of the great Neil Gaiman? Rather than me explain it, just click this link and listen to the man himself talking about his excellent idea for a new Halloween tradition.

EVENTS AND APPEARANCES

Just a reminder that I’m NOT now appearing at the Aliens to Zombies convention in LA this week – apologies to anyone who was heading there to say hello. However I’m pleased to announce that I’ll be signing at Cardiff Waterstone’s with Wayne Simmons on Friday 28th October from 12:30pm. Also, don’t forget to book your tickets for the Halloween Horror Night at Warwick Arts Centre where I’ll be reading and talking alongside Adam Nevill and Gary McMahon.
