As well as writing this blog, in April 2012 I set out on a publishing journey that has taken me on an interesting ride. My debut series, Inside Evil, launched in April and now has two books published. I’m currently working on science fiction novel that is due to launch Dec, 2012, and a zombie novella that I’m expecting to publish in Jan 2013. To find out more, visit GeoffreyWakeling.com or read a little about the books below.
Set in a small and remote town on the English and Scottish border, a death occurs, the snuffing out of a young teenage girl’s life. But this is no ordinary death, and though she’s laid to rest quickly, a small group of residents know that the town is filled with paranormal oddity. This is no simple death, this is murder.
As Roberta comes to realise that an ancient curse now lives in her bones, Susan seeks answers to her daughter’s death. For all involved there’s a race against time, and they want answers, they’ll have to act fast.
The Tower of Souls
With the town coming to terms with the horrors when the evil first attacked, most are trying to get on with their average life. However, as usual, nothing is quite as it seems and strange things are afoot. Stuck in a new realm where her friends cannot aid her, Roberta seeks to return home and vanquish evil whilst she’s at it. But, her enemy is not what she’s quite expecting….
Having escaped Gathin’s clutches, Roberta is on the run with the child she stole from her nemesis. In this case, the best way to avoid a war is to run, hide and never look back. But it soon becomes apparent that leaving Ridgewood behind may have not been in Roberta and her friends’ best interests, for things are happening in the tiny town that, once again, cannot be explained.
Spirits of the Middlelands is the third book from the Inside Evil series. Despite battling a curse that descends upon Ridgewood on a 10 yearly cycle, Roberta seems to have become entangled in a world of mystery, danger and doppelgängers.
CRYO; Rise of the Immortals
John’s life is ordinary. Whilst skyscrapers soar towards the heavens, leaving a dying Earth far below, John has little to enthuse him about the modern world. He’s the black sheep of the family, the recluse, the one who never did anything worthwhile. That is, until John wins an elusive ticket to the CRYO program. Within seconds, his life explodes in a flash of cameras, notoriety and intrigue.
The chance to sleep for a few decades and wake in a new world, a place where life might be better, is all that John can hope for. But, is CRYO everything it says it is? Is the promise of a prosperous future unfounded? Only time will tell, as John becomes one of 50 new immortal souls to ride out the journey of time….
The apocalypse has come and gone. A disease, an infection, that blackened the Earth with horror. Then came Pacifier 6; a drug to calm the evil, to dampen the cravings for flesh and bone. Now you go to the store and pick out a zombie as if you were buying a new pet.
But what happens when you realise that familiar faces still have feelings?
Carl’s pulling himself back together, attempting to cope with the losses that life has dealt him. Amidst the horror of the past few months, he begins to realise that death isn’t necessarily the end; it can be the start of something new, something that has never been seen before. With everyone around him battling to keep society intact, Carl manages to see beyond the ravaged faces of those he once knew. There’s a new creature in the darkness, a consciousness that most have overlooked, and it’s waiting to reveal itself.
