Nearly a week after launch, and the first 5-star reviews are appearing for my new novel Earthed.
Amazon.com reviewer LAW80 states:
""Earthed" held me captive to the imagination of Maz Marik. I read numerous horror and apocalyptic books but I was without a doubt terrified as I turned each page. The scene descriptions, characters and plot are what makes or breaks a good book, I can honestly say "Earthed" accomplished what many horror writers fail and that is to keep the reader wanting more with each page. An excellent book that will keep the most skeptical thrill seeking horror reader turning each page with anticipation for more."
Meanwhile, Ahnah on Goodreads says:
"I was given an advance copy of this novel as a beta reader and I loved the book!!! Non-stop action and Horror from page 1 and a definite page turner. I could not read this book late at night because it spooked me so badly. With vivd imagery Mr. Marik described pure terror. Well done and I will definitely reread this story over and over."

Don't forget to check out my book trailer below! Watch in fullscreen with the bass turned up!
(Apologies for the bad pun in the title, I couldn't resist. Plus it gives me an excuse to eat Earthed-day cake...)
With less than a week to go before the big release of my second novel Earthed, I'm today launching a new video trailer for the book. If I've figured the embedding out properly, you should be able to watch it below.
Watch in fullscreen with the bass turned up on your speakers for the best effect! I'm far from an expert at this, but putting the video together was great fun, and thanks go to filmmaker John Ligtenberg for the camerawork, and Kevin MacLeod for the awesome music.
Feel free to share it far and wide, and don't forget to place your preorders (or buy on release day, 28th October, from Amazon)!
I am delighted to announce a release date for my new novel Earthed. Two weeks from today, on the 28th October 2013, you will be able to get your hands on the latest part of the End Storm Saga.
Preorders are open now at Apple's iBooks, Kobo and Barnes & Noble (Nook), so order your copy now!
Amazon do not allow preorders for self-publishers, so the book will not be available for purchase until the release date.
To read a sample in the meantime, please visit the book's Smashwords page (I would advise against using the HTML sample, as the software is very buggy and does not do justice to the hours my editor spent formatting it!)
Check this site for more exciting Earthed content during the countdown to release!
The final End Storm Short Story, First Night, is now available for FREE on B&N Nook and the Kobo Bookstore, in addition to Smashwords. Get your copy now!
If you'd like to see it for FREE on Amazon, use the 'Report a lower price' link on the book's page, and mention any of the above stores!
In other news, the countdown to the release of Earthed begins now, as you can probably see from the fact the website has changed colour!
Feedback from one of my beta readers was very positive. She had this to say about the book:
"Wow.. That was an amazing read...
...overall I truly enjoyed this book and would definitely reread this in the future. Over the years, my husband has shown me the wonder of Hammer Horror movies, to which I am completely addicted. That's almost exactly what I felt like I was reading. Everything was described in such great detail that I could picture every scene. The frights were so scary, I was honestly creeped out...
...The characters were intriguing and believable and likable. The scene in the police station was like watching a movie. Honestly I can't rave enough about how great it truly was."
Watch this space for a confirmed release date, and to find out when preorders open!
A week on, and First Night is now available for FREE in all formats (ePUB, mobi for Kindle, PDF) from the Smashwords store.
It also remains available on Kindle (where it is still 99c/77p from Amazon.com and Amazon UK, as well as all other Amazon sites).
Now that the book has been published at Smashwords, it should only be a few days/weeks before it starts popping up at the likes of Barnes and Noble, Kobo and Apple. Watch this space for more updates!
