I’m doing some selective promotion for my book, ‘Cured’, to celebrate the posting of the first twelve chapters of a revised version. Somewhere, sometime, you have expressed an interest in zombies, either by writing about them or commenting on someone else’s writing about them. That’s why you are receiving this message. It’s only going to those with a genuine taste for the genre. Just looking like a zombie, or writing like one, isn’t enough.
‘Cured’ is about what happens to people who have been cured of a zombie/rage infection. It has some really horrific action scenes, but also a diverse cast of realistic, often flawed, characters faced with complex personal, social and political dilemmas. All I’m asking is that you take a quick look at it and comment on anything you like or don’t like. Backing or starring it is, of course, entirely up to you. I’m not promising anything in return, but obviously if you have something that interests me, I’ll have a look at it.
Here are a few comments I liked. ‘A new and intelligent slant on the mass infection genre’. ‘Very professional writing’. ‘Everything was relevant...no wasted words or sentences’. ‘Dramatic and gritty writing’. ‘The pacing is perfect’. ‘Not PC, but so very true’. ‘A great twist on an over-played genre’. ‘Stayed up far later than I intended reading this’. Selective, of course, but not wholly unrepresentative (check it out).
As you will have already noted, I’m not afflicted by false (or even sincere) modesty, but I am open to criticism – hence the revised version. All the same, if anyone can convince me that there are one thousand, two hundred and three better books than ‘Cured’ on this site, I will trouble you no more and go back to what I know I’m bad at – working on my golf handicap.
Thanks for your consideration,
