Outbreak London: Release Date & Cover

Outbreak London: Release date

I’m delighted to announce the release date for the upcoming Outbreak London, book 5 in the Royal Zombie Corps series.  On Sunday 1st December, the book will launch on Amazon.

London, early 1918.  Zombies have arrived.  Will London survive?  Can Alfie Marsh restore order or will Britain be knocked out of the war?

This will be the first book in the Royal Zombie Corps series to be published since 2017.  The book is also the first to feature the cover art of the amazing Stuart Bache, who has created many excellent covers for writers including Stephen King, Mark Dawson and John le Carré.  

At over 40,000 words long, this new story is longer than the first four books in the series.  It continues the themes of zombies during World War One, but for the first time, the zombies are well away from the front lines.

New Book – Blood, Mud and Corpses

I’m just finalising the artwork on the new book, ‘Blood, Mud and Corpses’. The book should be released before the end of this month.  I’ll upload the cover sometime over the weekend.

Blood, Mud and Corpses’ is the first book in the Royal Zombie Corps series.  Book 2 is at the proofreading stage and book 3 is in final editing.  A teaser for the new book is below.

“No one knew when the endless bloodshed and grindingly futile toil of the trenches would ever end. Then a miracle came from a source totally removed from even the most fantastic of dreams.”

The series is set during the First World War, following a group of soldiers as they are conscripted into the British Army during 1916.  The brutality of the war becomes far greater during their first experience of combat as they stumble across something unexpected in no-man’s-land.
