“It’s now been two weeks since I finished reading TRUST and I still can’t quite put my finger on what makes it, in my humble opinion, an instant classic… I can guarantee that you will never have read anything like TRUST before…“
Did you know that September 7th is Buy a Book Day? I didn’t either. It’s an initiative that’s been around for a couple of years now, and I for one hope it continues to grow. Even if you haven’t heard about it, why not pick up a new book anyway?
I know I’m biased, but here are a couple you might like to try…
James Herbert’s first novel in six years – ASH – is now available (as you may have noticed from my slightly over-excited posts recently). The cherry on the cake for me this week is that James was very happy with the way things went on Monday evening, so much so that I’ve been asked to host his next signing at Foyles in London on 18th September. I can’t wait. If you’re one of the lucky 150 who have tickets to the sell-out event, you’re in for a treat.
And it’s Friday, so here’s my biweekly plug for TRUST, chapter 13 of which is now available to read online.
The book continues to get some great press. This week, Shadowlocked said: “For regular Moody readers, TRUST is the latest in a long line of thought provoking, intelligent novels, and a chance to see him stretch his wings outside of the AUTUMN and HATER universes. For new readers this is an ideal starting point to discover this major British talent who despite his innovations and successes of the last decade, you get the feeling is only just getting started.” Read the full review here.
If you can’t wait until the end of December to finish Tom Winter’s story, don’t forget the book is available now as a low price ebook, paperback, and limited edition hardcover (be quick – they’re disappearing fast…).
Just a quick post to remind you that the 10% discount offer on the limited edition hardcover of TRUST ends this weekend. Please click here to find out more and get your hands on a copy.
And in today’s TRUST update… Tom Winter has his first very close encounter which you can read now at www.trustdavidmoody.com.
Interesting developments in Thatcham in today’s chapter of the free serialisation of TRUST.
‘Well that’s it,’ he heard someone say, catching a snatch of excited conversation as he tried to push past a group of revellers, ‘they’re here to stay now.’
And good news for those of you who’ve pre-ordered the limited edition hardcover edition of TRUST. Your books will start shipping in the next couple of days. Thanks again for picking up the book. Follow this link if you’d like to get your hands on one.
No need for artists impressions any longer (see my previous post) – the limited edition hardcover of TRUST is on its way back from the printers and here’s a picture of the very first copy. It’s a thing of beauty. Pre-orders have been coming in at a great rate and there’s still time to purchase the book at a 10% discount: click here for more details. More good news for those who snagged a copy early – your books will be dispatched next week, a couple of weeks ahead of schedule.
Still not sure? Let Wayne Simmons try and persuade you: “Moody is selling TRUST as an anti-scifi book, and that’s pretty much what you’ve got here. Unlike a lot of contemporary scifi, this story is defiantly character-focused, and heartbreakingly accessible with it. It’s not Hollywood fodder. Think DISTRICT 9 as opposed to INDEPENDENCE DAY. I’ll stand by the word ‘epic’ to best describe this book. Because from gripping start to heart-pounding finish, this is a story that will shake you to the very core, resonating long after you’ve turned the final page. And there’s nothing more epic than that.”
And I loved these words taken from an Amazon review by Chris Bowsman: “For the majority of the book it’s a slow burn, obviously building towards something. The payoff is immense, and once it gets going it’s like dozens of pages of falling down the stairs. Very highly recommended.”
Wonderful words. Thanks to Wayne and Chris.
And finally, it’s just a short chapter today, but there’s more free TRUST to be had at www.trustdavidmoody.com.
It’s the morning after the night before in Thatcham, and everything has changed. Read chapter 4 of TRUST online now.
And in case you missed the announcement on Saturday – pre-orders for the limited edition hardcover have now opened, and you can find more information here. Get in quick though, because they’re shifting fast. Huge thanks to all of you who’ve already ordered.
The next instalment in the continuing serialisation of TRUST is now available to read over at www.trustdavidmoody.com. Click here or on the graphic below to go there now.
This seems like the ideal moment to apologise for the fact the eBook remains unavailable anywhere in the world but the US. It has me stumped and, more worryingly, it has Amazon stumped too. As soon as there’s any update I’ll post here and on Facebook and Twitter.
Got quite a lot to tell you about next week. There will be further chapters of TRUST posted on Monday and Friday, of course, and I also hope to announce pre-orders for the limited edition hardcover release of the book.
Have a great weekend!
The long awaited, completely revised, rewritten and expanded version of TRUST is now available.
You can order the paperback from all the usual online retailers now, or pick up a signed copy direct from www.infectedbooks.co.uk. Over the course of the next day or so, the book will appear online at all the various Kindle stores around the world.
Don’t forget, the book is being serialised over at www.trustdavidmoody.com between now and the end of the year, with the first chapter already posted. Subsequent chapters will be added every Monday and Friday.
Hope you enjoy the book. Don’t forget to let me know what you think.
