Year of the Zombie – Pitch and Page winner announcement

David Moody has just announced the winner of our Pitch and Page competition:

“It’s with great pleasure that I’m able to announce the winner of the Infected Books Year of the Zombie Pitch and Page competition. It’s taken a while for the judging process to be completed, and I’m sorry to have kept folks waiting for the result. We had a good number of entries, but there was a clear favourite which judges Michael Preissl, Gina Panettieri and I unanimously picked.

Congratulations to SCOTT MCGLASSON. Scott’s novella NOCK will be October’s Year of the Zombie release.

Huge thanks to EVERYONE who entered the competition. I’d like to particularly mention a number of other great writers who were highly commended by the judges: Dan Howarth, Matthew Gilman, Angela Bodine and Mouse-Diver Dudfield.”

Congratulations , Scott! Check back here soon for more information about NOCK!

Year of the Zombie Pitch & Page: Want to be our 12th Author?

YoZ slide

To celebrate 15 years since the publication of Infected Books’ first novel, David Moody’s Autumn, we’ve declared 2016 YEAR OF THE ZOMBIE.

Killchain by Adam Baker

We’ve signed up 11 authors, many of whom you’ll know from having penned your favourite zombie horror bestsellers, to write a novella each. We’ll be releasing one novella every month throughout 2016, the first being the excellent KILLCHAIN by Adam Baker (OUTPOST, IMPACT).

We’ll be announcing our second title in the series very soon but, first, we want to talk more about our promise to sign up one of YOU as our 12th author.

Yes, as previously announced, we’ll be running a very special Pitch & Page comp via the Infected Books facebook page.

The comp will be judged by our very own Dragon’s-Den-esque panel of bestselling horror author and IB head honcho, David Moody, US literary agent, Gina Panettieri and Michael Preissl of German & English language publisher, Voodoo Press.

The winner will join our 11 established authors to have their novella released as part of the YOZ series.
