The follow-up to my first book, For Those In Peril On The Sea, is coming out on the 21st of July 2014. The new one's called The Outbreak and again mixes post-apocalyptic survival, zombie-like creatures created by a mutated rabies virus and sailing. In the run up to its release, I'm giving away a couple of signed copies to give two lucky winners the chance to read this book before anyone else. If you're interested, you can enter via my blog at, but be quick because the closing date is Thursday the 3rd of July 2014.

If you want to find out more about the book itself before you enter, here's the description which will appear on its Amazon listing page:

Book Description For The Outbreak:

Starting in Glasgow, The Outbreak weaves its tale of post-apocalyptic survival into the varied landscapes and cultures of western Scotland, ranging from bustling city streets to remote island communities. With its evocative use of real locations on both land and sea, and atmospheric depictions of the trials faced by those trying to survive as their world falls apart around them, The Outbreak expands the new and unusual take on the traditional post-apocalyptic genre first introduced by the same author in his much acclaimed debut novel For Those In Peril On The Sea.

While this is the second book in the For Those In Peril series, it focuses on a different set of characters to those in the first. However, the characters from these two books will be united when their storylines finally collide in the third book in the series. This is currently scheduled for release in the summer of 2015.

From the back of the book:

He was only in the city to meet an old friend, but within hours of his return, Ben’s running for his life …

As the world watches in horror, Miami falls to the infected, and with it America. Britain seals its borders hoping to prevent the newly mutated Haitian Rabies Virus reaching its shores, but it’s too late; somewhere in Glasgow is the man who started it all and coursing through his veins is the virus he accidentally created. When he finally turns, the city doesn’t stand a chance.

Minutes later, a small group of survivors find themselves trapped between the ever-increasing hordes of infected and the soldiers seeking to contain them. The roads are barricaded, the skies patrolled, and the only way out is the river which leads from the heart of the city to the safety of the sea.

Join Ben, Tom, Daz, Claire and Sophie as they flee from the infected, first by land, then by sea. Where will they go? How will they survive? Only time will tell.


Colin M. Drysdale, author of For Those In Peril On The Sea.
