A new issue of SCREAM is always cause for celebration, and this month is no different. As well as interviews with GEORGE ROMERO and DARIO ARGENTO, there’s a great feature on the latter half of the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET series and a report on LORD OF TEARS (a very creepy movie I’ll be talking more about in the coming weeks). Visit www.screamhorrormag.com to get hold of a copy. If you’re in the UK, you can buy the mag from any branch of HMV.
Also, if you’re a SCREAM subscriber, click here to enter their STRAIGHT TO YOU giveaway. Five signed copies up for grabs!
Ebook versions will be available from the 14th (you can pre-order the Nook and iBook versions already). You can read the first chapter of the novel over at Wattpad. Also, there’s a Goodreads Giveaway running. Use the widget at the bottom of this post to enter.
A quick reminder – you’ve got just under two weeks left to enter the latest TRUST giveaway. Just help me promote the free version of the book and you’ll be entered into a draw to win a copy of the limited edition of TRUST along with limited editions of AUTUMN: AFTERMATH and AUTUMN: THE HUMAN CONDITION when they’re released later this year. Just tweet about the book (use hashtag #trustdavidmoody) or post on Facebook (tag me so I catch your entry) before 31st January. See this recent post for more details.
Don’t forget – the collectors edition of TRUST is available at a reduced price for a limited time. More information here.
It’s Friday, and the next chapter of TRUST was posted at www.trustdavidmoody.com earlier today. We’re up to chapter 15 already – a third of the way through the book – and it occurred to me that it’s about time I ran a TRUST-themed giveaway.
I want your help to spread the word about TRUST. Up for grabs are three copies of the limited edition hardcover, with five paperbacks for runners up. To stand a chance of winning, just do one or more of the following (you’ll get an entry for each) before 15th October:
follow me on Twitter (@davidjmoody) and Tweet about the release/serialisation of TRUST (remember to include either this hashtag: #trustdavidmoody or this link: www.trustdavidmoody.com)
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.
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.
AUTUMN: AFTERMATH – the final book in the AUTUMN series – is released in the US today. There will be a few more shorts to come and more releases of the novels in various different territories, but as far as the overall AUTUMN story goes, this is it. The end.
To celebrate the release, I’ve got ten copies of AFTERMATH to give away courtesy of the good folks at Thomas Dunne Books/St Martin’s Griffin.
To stand a chance of winning, just do one or more of the following before 31st March (you’ll get an entry for each you do).
follow me on Twitter (@davidjmoody) and Tweet about the release of AFTERMATH (remember to include the hashtag #aftermath)
write a review of any of my books and send me the link
If you’re already a Twitter follower or Facebook fan, just tweet/post about the book and remember to include the appropriate tag.
Remember – as always – the competition is open worldwide, and my decision is final. Only one tweet and one Facebook post per person please. The winners will be chosen at random and announced by 1st April. Good luck!
UPDATE 1st APRIL – COMPETITION CLOSED. WINNERS WILL BE ANNOUNCED SHORTLY.
I recently posted about the fact I have a backlog of too many ideas and not enough time. Your responses were reassuring. It's good to know I'm not the only one who struggles with an off-kilter inspira...
