Midnight strikes

Posted in the dead walked, the dead weekend, the walking dead, undead, vincent stark, walkers walkers everywhere, WALKING DEAD, zombies on 08/16/2012 by vincentstark

It’s close to midnight

The Dead Walked Book 2-Dead Days is officially published for the Kindle platform from midnight tonight, but given the workings of the KDP process the book can actually be downloaded immediately from Amazon UK and US.

To celebrate the release I have made the first book in the series free for the next two days-head over to your Amazon Vincent Stark page and get both books – that’s two books for the price of one which surely can’t be bad.

Beyond terror, beyond reality.

A world where the dead rule supreme.

“Zombie Sex dude, this one goes too far.”

Ahh well, maybe I should market it as, Fifty Shades of Mould

Vincent Stark is a reclusive writer, who shuns all contact with the outside world. He has not been seen in public since 1979. Although, from time to time, there have been rumours of sightings of the author lurking in the shadows of the cemetery behind his dilapidated mansion house deep in the Rhondda Valley countryside.

It is said that he is suffering from a skin condition which is aggravated by sunlight and is thus forced into his twilight existence. There is much debate over his well known skill with, the Stylophone and his penchant for playing jazz phrases on his own podcast, Scary Motherfucker. Indeed Stark seems to have picked up this skill overnight and there is one urban legend of him visiting the crossroads one evening and selling his soul to the devil in exchange for his ability on the stylophone.

The devil has all the best tunes

This year will see the publication of the second novella in the Dead Walked trilogy and the author, showing the first signs of clawing his way back into the public consciousness, now has a Facebook page – please support the aging author by clicking like on his page, HERE

However for now Vincent Stark remains hidden away, his groceries delivered by a string of crucifix wearing delivery men and his bills paid by automatic withdrawal from the blood bank.

The Dead Walked Book Two available

Posted in the dead walked, the walking dead, vincent stark, walkers walkers everywhere, WALKING DEAD, zombies on 08/14/2012 by vincentstark

If you’ve not yet read my novel,  The Dead Walked, available on Amazon then now is the time to do so. The novella, the first in a trilogy is available to download at an incredibly low price and kicks off this trilogy of terror. Book Two will be published this coming Friday and continues the story, taking the reader into areas not usually covered by the zombie sub-genre.

It’s a new kind of storytelling that harks back to the golden age of serial fiction – a time when novellas, and not heavily padded five hundred page books,  were the norm.

September was her favourite time of the year, and late September, when the autumn was just preparing to hand over to winter, when there was still a residue of the late summer warmth in the air, as well as the crisp promise of the iciness to come, had always been, as far as Missy was concerned, the finest chunk of that particular month.

Not for her was the spectacle of high summer, nor the morose beauty of mid winter. Of course they both had their fineries but these paled next to the season when the leaves glittered with reflected sunlight. It was the autumn, with September being the highlight of that season, which she loved – a time when nature put on its finest display as the lush summer growth was magically transformed.

The sky itself seemed to glow at this time of year.

            September was a time of promise.

            A time of rebirth.

            Not this September, though.

This September, Missy would remember as, the time the dead walked.

Book Two now available

Book Three: Necropolis follows soon.

Walking Dead season three news

Posted in the walking dead, vincent stark on 07/25/2012 by vincentstark

If there was one plot thread left hanging from Season One of AMC’s The Waking Dead that bugged me it was what happened to Merle.

 

Well here’s a shot of the character in the forthcoming third season.

Undead hordes outside, something worse in here.

At the close  Book One of the Dead Walked trilogy only Missy and Johnny were left standing, trapped inside the bungalow in which they had sought shelter. Outside there were hordes of the undead and somewhere inside with them was the demon baby – a cliffhanger indeed.

 

 

 

This July Book Two – Dead Days will be launched onto the electronic highways and readers will be able to pick up on the story.

 

Book One is still available HERE

 

Reviews for Book One:

 

 

 

I enjoyed the book more so because of the simplicity.I cannot wait for the next book to find out what happens to Missy,and her odd destiny,Johnny and of course the hybrid demon zombie thing! Is it time for them to die now they are surrounded by hordes of zombies? The worst one being trapped idoors with them? Need to know!

 

Hey, if you love zombies (and who doesn’t) this is a fab read. The author is proving a master at several genres, all his novels are well worth reading.

Some said it was viral.
Others claimed it was an act of God.
Either way the result was the same and the dead walked.
