This week, my eighth book is published: Boyband of the Apocalypse: Washed Up. It’s the sequel to Boyband of the Apocalypse, which you might have already guessed. Once again words are provided by me and the brilliant pictures have been supplied by the extremely talented David O’Connell. And the whole thing is published by Stripes Publishing, the IPG Children’s Publisher of the Year (whoop whoop!). Here’s the blurb:
Just when Sam thinks life has returned to normal he’s bundled into a black van by agents of the Apocalypse Intelligence Agency who send him off the remote jungle island of Fin del Mundo to appear on a celebrity reality TV game show. One of Sam’s rival ‘celebrity’ contestants is none other than evil music mogul Nigel Cruul, who the A.I.A. suspect is planning to bring back the Horsewomen of the Apocalypse. Luckily his best friend Milo and kick-ass sister Lexi are starring in the show too. But they’ll have to survive everything from alligator-infested swamps to public vote offs, if they’re to save the world once more.
And here’s the awesome cover:
And just to get you in the mood, I’ve made a teaser trailer for it:
It comes out this Thursday (3rd May). I’ve really loved writing this series, it’s been a lot of fun. If you happen to pick it up, and enjoy it, I’d really appreciate it if you could take the time to add a review on amazon to help increase visibility. No bother if you can’t though.
Also, if you’re a teacher and you’d like me to come to your school and talk about boybands and apocalypses and what not, then please get in touch. Not to toot my own horn, though this is my website so I’m probably allowed and indeed supposed to, but my talks for Boyband of the Apocalypse have gone down really well so far. There’s a whole bit on East 17 in there and some clips of westlife getting up off some stools, which I’m almost certain no other author is doing. I mean, there might be a good reason for that, but still.
