I just got back from a long day researching locations for the next book, to discover a great review of Book 1 has been published on the 'Random Redheaded Ramblings' blog:

I'm going to alternate books from now on. One zombie book to one absolutely-no-undead-whatsoever book.
The first of these is a novella titled 'Work, rest, repeat...' and is a dystopian murder mystery set fifty years after The Great Disaster ravaged the Earth.
It's about three quarters of the way finished, and I'm hoping to get it out in August.
In the Autumn I'll be publishing the next Evacuation novel. The prologue and epilogue are set on Anglesey, a few days after the events of Book 3, with the main story set in during the first few weeks after the evacuation. It'll feature a couple of characters you'll recognise and quite a few you won't.
More will be posted when I get more written, and that will probably be on the new website.
For now, can I just say thank you?
I'll be retiring this blog shortly (which is one of the reasons I've not been posting much. Sorry about that) and moving onto the imaginatively titled website; www.franktayell.com
I'm also on twitter. Don't expect me to tweet very often, but I will use it, like facebook (and a mailing list which is the next thing on my list) to inform readers of new releases. @FrankTayell is the handle. You can tell it's me by the avatar and the fact I've not posted anything yet.
I've tweaked the cover for the short story a little. When I wrote it, I thought that I'd release one novel and three short stories per year in the Evacuation series. It's worked out the other way around. There will be more stories published, both set during the first few months after the outbreak, and the years that follow, but more on that when I'm closer to publishing them.
