REVIEWS – a favour

October 29th, 2012 • Posted in Random Stuff |

Here’s me asking for a little favour…

If you read any of my latest books — Coldbrook, London Eye, The Heretic Land, Nothing as it Seems — and feel so inclined, it’d be so helpful if you could take a minute to post a review somewhere (Amazon, other book retailers, your blog…)  Or if not a review, at least a mention on Facebook or Twitter.  Exposure helps sales, and sales helps me to write more books.  And if you’re visiting this site and reading this, I hope that’s something you might like.

Coldbrook is being very well received so far, with great feedback from readers and some stellar reviews.  And as for London Eye … that exciting news I promised will be coming soon.

Thanks!  Happy Hallowe’en!

Interviews, kingfishers, and other stuff…

October 19th, 2012 • Posted in Random Stuff, Reviews & Interviews |

Here’s a nice new interview with me on My Bookish Ways.

And a very nice new review of LONDON EYE.

Been running along the canal a lot recently, and this last week I’ve seen a kingfisher a couple of times.  Not often I seen one of those.  It’s a beautiful bird, coloured like a splash of oil on water, and it made me realise — once again — just what a lovely place I live in.  I’m going to start taking pictures and posting them here.

Anyone interested in following my efforts to get fit in my forties and train for Ironman UK next year can read it all here.

More news coming soon … watch this space for something very exciting!

COLDBROOK pre-order competition … win books!

October 5th, 2012 • Posted in Random Stuff |

My new apocalyptic zombie thriller COLDBROOK is officially released in the UK by Hammer/Arrow on Thursday 11th October.

If you pre-order COLDBROOK before midnight on 10th October, let me know at lebbon1984(at)yahoo(dot)com, and I’ll enter you in a draw to win a BIG BOX OF BOOKS.  Go here and click on Buying Options to select from a whole list of online suppliers.  If you’ve already pre-ordered let me know at the above address and you’ll go into the draw.

No need to send proof of purchase … I’m working this one on trust.

The BIG BOX will include a selection of my books including: Echo City (Orbit, pb), The Secret Journeys of Jack London: The Wild (with Christopher Golden, hardback); The Secret Journeys of Jack London: The Sea Wolves (also with Chris, hardback);  The Island (A&B, pb), Bar None (Night Shade, pb), The Cabin in the Woods (novelisation, pb) … and a couple of surprises!  What a bunch of goodies…

Starburst Magazine said of COLDBROOK:

“Coldbrook is a heart pounding, blood drenched, yet intelligent and original take on the undead. It successfully blends the horror, fantasy and science fiction elements into an utterly compelling and satisfying story that stays with you after the book is finished. Zombie stories don’t get much better than this. 8/10”

So just pre-order anywhere here, let me know (lebbon1984(at)yahoo(dot)com), and go into a draw to win all those books listed above … and more!  Open to anyone in the world.

FANTASYCON 2012

September 24th, 2012 • Posted in Book News, Random Stuff |

The weekend fast approaches!  Fantasycon seems to have crept up on me this year, even though I’m Master of Ceremonies so I’ve been thinking about it all summer!

For now, here’s my schedule:

Thursday:

Welcome to Fantasycon party, 7pm, Bar Rogue

Friday:

4pm panel, Your First Convention

5pm book launch, PS launches my new collection NOTHING AS IT SEEMS, Bar Rogue

8-9:30pm, mass signing

Saturday:

3pm panel, What happens when the YA bubbles bursts?

4-5PM, Best New Horror book launch and signing

5pm – reading

8pm – ChiZine launch

Sunday: Banquet and Awards

Going to be a busy one!  I’m hoping to squeeze in a run or two, and of course drinks and meals with friends.  Fantasycon’s always a highlight of the year for me, and I’m really looking forward to this one.  My books THE HERETIC LAND and (soon to be released) COLDBROOK will be available at the Forbidden Planet table, as well as the new collection NOTHING AS IT SEEMS from the mighty PS Publishing. It’s going to be fun!

Caerleon Festival

June 11th, 2012 • Posted in Random Stuff |

I’ll be appearing at the Caerleon Arts Festival this year!  You can find out about the festival here, and to check out what I’ll be doing, visit this page.  I’ll be part of the Meet the Authors day on July 7th, taking place in the Priory Hotel (the very place where my wife and I had our wedding party … ooh, many years ago).  I really hope you can come along.

Caerleon Festival is always a fantastic event.  Browse through the programme to see what’s going on, but I’d also like to flag up the Arthur Machen Walk.  Many of you reading this will know of Machen, but you might not know that he was born and raised in and around Caerleon, and that much of his fiction was influenced by the surrounding countryside.  Come along for the walk, and have a drink in the Hanbury Arms, one of his favourite pubs.
