DUNCAN P BRADSHAW

Duncan P. Bradshaw has a secret, one that he has harboured for a while now. That time, in the safe house? When the zombies broke through the barricades, and despite their numbers, we managed to fight them off? Do you remember afterwards, when he told you that he hadn't been bitten? He lied. Now infused with the zombism infection, he uses what time he has left, to write down the weird and wonderful things that run around his decaying brain.

Writing a mix of comedy/horror/bizarro, Duncan aims to publish books which are a little out there, and to make the reader laugh, and retch, in equal measure. His recent book, zombie short story collection, CHUMP, was nominated for a Saboteur Award in 2017. This year he also edited and published charity anthology, TRAPPED WITHIN, which went to number one in the Kindle Horror Anthology charts on the weekend of its release.

So if you fancy something a little off the beaten track, why not take a wander through the contents of his head? See if you can make it out in one piece.

BRAMBLEDOWN DESIGNS

I'm an artist; I used to be a scientist, so it's an odd mix. I think that might be why I like to experiment. I like to play around with ideas such as my mosaics made from smashed vinyl or my lino-cuts into vintage book pages.

Horror caught my imagination hiding behind the sofa watching Hammer horrors as a kid and has stayed with me ever since. I’m thrilled to be part of the Horror Con in Birmingham; I’ll be bringing my kit and making more art over the weekend."

CONFESSIONS PUBLICITY

While you sit in your work space for hours on end, writing, editing, re-writing, some more editing, rewriting again and then crossing your fingers as you submit the book for consideration with a publisher or getting it ready to self-publish, promotion to help you get your face in the public eye and, more importantly, your book on the pages of social media, websites and blogs, is one of the most important aspects of an author’s life.

The problem is that most authors just want to do what they are good at: writing. They don’t want the hassle of constantly having to share things on Facebook or Tweeting things to get themselves noticed. Although they know how important it is, they could better spend this time pounding the keyboard and producing either another short or novella or the next book in their most recent series.

That is where Confessions Publicity comes in. Put quite simply, if you join with Confessions Publicity, we will look after everything you need to promote you and your books.

NICK STEAD

Nick Stead is a supernatural horror and dark fantasy author from Huddersfield. He has a lifelong obsession with werewolves so it's no surprise his debut novel is a werewolf story, which he started writing back in 2003, while he was still in his GCSE years at school.

What was originally intended to be a short story quickly grew into ideas not just for a full length novel, but an entire series, and with the realisation of this his dream to one day be published was born. That dream was finally realised in 2015 and he has since brought out the second book, Hunted, and has almost finished drafting the third, which he hopes to have ready for release later this year.

Aside from the Hybrid series, he has also written several short stories which you can read for free on his website, and he has plans for a dark fantasy novel in future, as well as several other horrors.

The first book in the series, Torment, was released in 2015 and though the series was initially intended to be a trilogy, it has expanded into something bigger and she is currently working on book four. As well as this she is also hard at work on a supernatural tale based around some of her own, real life experiences.

As well as her novels, she also has works published in charity anthologies, and runs an interview series with other werewolf loving creatives on her website. She is also working on a dark fantasy comic and scribbling down ideas for more horror tales featuring folklore tales from around the world.
