Two books on the way

As you may know by now, the sequel to Apocalypse Cow is on its way. Entitled Apocalypse Cow: World War Moo, it will be released by St. Martin's Press in mid-2015. Full details will emerge in good time.

However, I can reveal that Geldof and Lesley will be back - along with some new characters - as we embark on an adventure involving combat yoga, ferocious Noel Edmonds lookalikes, and cow bombs in an infected Britain about to be obliterated by an all-out international offensive.

To fill the gap in the meantime (it has been over two years since Apocalypse Cow first came out), I will be releasing an eBook in the next few months. You can read the blurb and first three chapters of this book, Wannabes, below.

The cover, final release date, and links to buy will be unveiled over the next few weeks. If any book bloggers want a review copy, drop me a line through the contacts page on my website, and I'll send you a DRM-free eBook once the final edits and design elements are completed (likely mid-July).


Wannabes

I want my children to listen to people who fucking rocked. I don’t care if they died in puddles of their own vomit. I want someone who plays from his fucking heart - Bill Hicks

Celebrities are mobbing London's laser clinics as a deranged wannabe bumps off A-listers, believing he can absorb their powers and become famous by taping their tattoos to his body.

Washed-up pop star Jackie Thunder isn’t joining the stampede. Jackie figures that if he can get on the killer’s hit list, without going so far as being murdered, of course, he’ll gain the publicity needed to reignite his career.

But there’s more at stake than Jackie can possibly imagine. His desperate ploy for attention plunges him into the heart of a decades-old demonic plot to destroy great music through murder, mayhem and manipulation.

With humanity’s collective soul at stake, just how far will Jackie go to reach the top?
