The Last Plague Pre-order and Release Date

Just a quick post to let you all know that my debut novel 'The Last Plague' will be released on August 31st and is now available for pre-order over at Crowded Quarantine Publications' website.
It's been a long way from when I started writing the story about two years ago, and a lot has happened during that time. Seems like such a long time ago. Strange how time flies so quickly.

Anyway, hope you're all well. Cheers!

When Great Britain is hit by a devastating epidemic, four old friends must cross a chaotic, war-torn England to reach their families and evade the victims of the plague – cannibalistic, mutated monsters whose only desires are to infect and feed. Along the way, the men find a girl who has lost her parents to the infected, and they are forced to protect her as they try to find shelter and safety in a country overwhelmed by THE LAST PLAGUE.

The Last Plague and Other News

Maybe you've already heard from my constant wittering about it, but my debut novel THE LAST PLAGUE is due to be released at the end of August. The cover has been revealed, also, and I think it's a thing of beauty. Great work by Adam and Zoe Millard over at Crowded Quarantine Publications, and thanks to Paul M. Feeney for the quote on the cover. I just hope that people enjoy the book when (if) they read it. It's a weird feeling, knowing that by this time next month the book will nearly be out and I'll be a father for the first time, too. Sometimes, life is good.

In other news, I've submitted my novella 'BLACK STAR, BLACK SUN' to a publisher I've always wanted to work with and admired from afar during the last few years, which of course makes the waiting even more nerve-wracking! But it's all good, and if it doesn't work out, that's how it goes.

I've just started work on what will either be a novella or novel provisionally titled CHILDREN OF DUST AND SMOKE, about a man in search of his missing son. It's a ghost story about lost children and crimes from the past, and it's got the potential to be very, very bleak. I'm just not sure *how* bleak. But I suppose anything with dead children in it will veer in that direction...

So that's it, at the moment. Hope all is well with you wonderful people. And don't stay out in the sun too long.
