The Dead are coming... in 35 days...

Haven't blogged for ages. Got caught up in writing, writing, writing. It's been crazy. still is. And now it's almost upon me. Can't believe it: my very own horror series hits the shelves with book 1 of The Dead in 35 days on July 1st... Jeez...

I'm nervous. Terrified. Excited. Stunned. Bemused. And lots of other things I can't quite put a word to.

Some crazy stuff has happened already, including:

Trailer of The Dead on youtube (
Skateboards of The Dead produced as prizes (they're amazing!)
Website now live (
Badges of The Dead (see pic)
Facebook page up (just search for 'David Gatward Children's Author on facebook)
Two reviews already (will post links in a mo)
Interview/review in SFX magazine on 28 May
Review in Gorezone (will post when this is out) and trailer of The Dead on the covermount DVD

So there you go. The Dead are nearly here. I can't wait to meet 'em...

  1. Hi David

    Good to hear from you.

    Pleased to hear you're busy. Who/What are you ghostwriting for?

    Very pleased to hear you're doing stuff for Hodder too. I'll definitely check out SFX.
