Chapter 36 of TRUST is now online at www.trustdavidmoody.com, and it’s a pivotal chapter which explains everything. If you’ve been reading the book as it’s been posted, then enjoy it and see if you were right. If you’re just starting, then don’t start here! Go back to the beginning and enjoy the whole thing.
There’s very little of the book left to go now – less than 10 chapters. I’ll continue posting it on Mondays and Fridays with the concluding three parts all being posted on Friday 21 December which, coincidentally (and appropriately), is the day the world ends (if you believe in that kind of bollocks).
The entire novel will remain free to read online until the end of January – that’s assuming we’re all still here!
Sorry for the brief (and late) post today… Juggling a few self-imposed deadlines right now.
First things first, don’t forget that Wayne Simmons and I will be signing at Waterstones in Hull tomorrow from 1pm. Hope to see plenty of you there. Our final signing of the year is on 8th December at Waterstones in Swindon.
Second… apologies for the lack of news about the UK hardcover edition of AUTUMN: AFTERMATH. I should have some news for you early next week. In the meantime, the paperback is now available from Amazon, the Book Depository and Waterstones etc.
Finally for this week, another chapter of TRUST is now available to read over at www.trustdavidmoody.com. Not long left to go now before the entire novel is online. Hope you’re enjoying it. Remember you can get the book as an eBook, paperback and limited edition hardcover. All the details can be found here.
I was away on Friday (more about that in a second), so didn’t update here when the latest chapter of TRUST went live. Another chapter has been added this morning, so please head over to www.trustdavidmoody.com to catch up. Something very sinister is happening in Thatcham, and it’s going to change everything…
A lot of folks have been waiting for alternative eBook versions of the novel – Nook, Kobo, iBooks etc. etc. They should all be live at the relevant stores this week. Alternatively, you can now pick up the book in all formats direct from Smashwords.
Now to explain the bizarre title of this post… On Friday Wayne Simmons and I were in Maidstone, Kent for a signing and appearance. We took part in an event called Writing Allowed – an extremely well attended evening of poetry, prose and, yes, a little free-form jazz. I don’t think either of us have ever been part of such an eclectic bill, but I’m glad we were. It was hugely enjoyable, both as a participant and an audience member. I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Danny Rhodes, Georgie Grassom, and everyone involved in the evening for making us feel so welcome. With our curse-filled zombie and alien readings, we stuck out a mile, but that was no bad thing!
More events on the way – don’t forget we’ll be at the UK Festival of Zombie Culture this Saturday, and signing at Waterstones Hull the following weekend.
Chapter 30 of the book is now online at www.trustdavidmoody.com.For those of you waiting for the Kobo, Nook and iBook versions of the book, they should all be online shortly. Apologies for taking a while to make it happen.
And on the subject of things which have been dragging on for a bit… I can now announce the winners of the TRUST giveaway. Congratulations to Matt Darst, Stella Frost, Adam Holyoake, Alaric von Hofe and Fiona.
More TRUST on Friday. If you’re not reading it yet, you really should be. Things are properly kicking off in Thatcham now, and it’s about to get much, much worse!
AUTUMN: HORROR IN THE EAST
Takes place in Lowestoft tomorrow. I’ll be there from 10am onwards, and it promises to be an excellent day. So if you’re in the area, why not come along? The event is free, and you get the added bonus of seeing the sights of Lowestoft, the town where much of THEM OR US was set. There’s more information at www.horrorintheeast.com and a schedule for the day can be found here at This is Horror.
SCREAM MAGAZINE Will hopefully be in attendance this weekend in Lowestoft. Issue 14 of the magazine is available now. Click the cover for more details. It’s another issue filled with much goodness for the discerning horror fan, including interviews with some of the original Cenobites from Hellraiser, Alex Chandon (the director of Inbred), and Oren Peli (the chap responsible for Paranormal Activity).
GUEST POSTS AND INTERVIEWS
Finally, I was asked to put together a number of guest posts for Halloween specials during October. In case you missed any of them, here’s a list:
Are there really too many zombies, Graeme?
An interview with Booklist Online (warning – some spoilers)
Early TRUST reviewer Chris Bowsman said of the book “The payoff is immense, and once it gets going it’s like dozens of pages of falling down the stairs. Very highly recommended.” We’ve now reached the top of the staircase. From now until the end of the year/world, TRUST will be an intense read. Chapter 27 is available now, and if you haven’t been following the story from the beginning, read it all at www.trustdavidmoody.com.
More to come on Monday. Also coming up next week, more from my AUTUMN retrospective ahead of the imminent release of AFTERMATH in the UK, and I’ll be out and about as the “Never Trust a Man With Hair” tour continues. It’s Cheltenham Waterstones on Wednesday with Wayne Simmons, Adam Nevill and Joseph D’Lacey, then Horror in the East next Saturday (which, as I hope you already know, features a host of authors and is completely FREE!).
And finally, for a chance of winning copies of the AUTUMN books, check out the giveaways accompanying my recent guest posts at www.crazy-bookworm.com and www.bookchickcity.com.
