Giveaway Time!

It’s a well documented fact that I’m not very bright.

You may know that I recently ran a Kickstarter campaign for my new story Old Haunts.

Well, it seems that I can’t count and I’ve ended up with spare copies.

So, rather than have them sit on my bookshelf unread, I thought I’d give them away to people possessed of dubious luck.

There’s a limited edition hardback copy of the How To Be Dead stories (How To Be Dead, Paper Cuts and Old Haunts):


3 limited edition paperback copies of Old Haunts, the third story in the How To Be Dead series:


And a proof copy of the paperback version of the How To Be Dead series (all 3 stories), which I don’t think *anyone* has at the moment because it only went on sale yesterday:


Not sure whether you want to read them? You can have a look at the reviews here.

What are they about? Well, Dave Marwood is trapped in a soul crushing dead end job. He’s in love with his work colleague Melanie and his only friend Gary is a conspiracy theory nut. His life is going nowhere until he has a Near Death Experience – though Death thinks of it as a Near Dave Experience. He discovers gifts he never knew he possessed and a world he never dreamed existed. A world where the Grim Reaper is a hard drinking, grumpy Billy Joel fan and the undead are bored, lonely and dangerous. A world where Death and his office staff must protect humanity from ghosts, zombies, vampires and medium-sized apocalypses.

After a nice cup of tea and a biscuit.

To get in on the action, just do the biz on the form below! Good luck!

  1. Hi Dave, I would love any of your books. I have read them twice on e-format but a hard/paper copy would be great. Everyone I have recommended your books too have loved them! if you can send one, that is great and if not, that’s fine too 🙂

    All the best,


  2. The signed hardcover just arrived yesterday. It looks really good, and now lives in the Signed Books Book Case in the livingroom. Its new friends: Stephen King, Charlaine Harris, Robin Hobb, Joe Hill, and Wil Wheaton… I think it’ll like it there. But I have the other two books in paperback and wouldn’t mind – at all- to win a paperback of Old Haunts. You’re a bibliophile or you’re not, and missing it in the collection aches a little more than I thought it would. So here’s to crossed fingers and bisquits. And tea. 🙂

    1. That’s some pretty illustrious company! I’m sure it’ll feel very snuggly amongst those. Thanks for supporting me on the projects. I’ll never be fully able to express how much it means!

  3. Ohhh I loved how to be dead and paper cuts. It made me laugh in this depressing time. I just buried my best friend, and my fiancé, EX fiancé was cheating on me. This all happened two weeks ago, on the same night. Fred died in my arms. 52 years old. Cancer sucks. He gave me, through an egift, how to be dead….ironic, huh?
    Thanks for the great stories. He laughed harder than me, when I read it to him. So thank you. For the story, and for one of my last, and best memories of my best friend, my secret keeper.

    1. Wow. That’s left me a bit overwhelmed! Thank you. I’m lost for words (which is a terrible situation for a writer to be in). I’m so sorry for all that’s gone on. All I’ve ever wanted to do since I was a kid was make people laugh and knowing that – in whatever small way – it made things a tad brighter for a moment for you, well…. it’s made it all worthwhile.

      Look, I’m here if you need anything. Fart and biscuit jokes, mostly.

  4. Absolutely loved the books & can’t wait to see what you come up with next. Listening to my Billy Joel cds isn’t the same any more!!

  5. Lovely, lovely books, Death has never been such fun! They are my preciouses (is that a word? I’m not sure but if not then it should be) and yours would be in fabulous company on my ‘From the author’ bookshelf, which is less a whole shelf and more of a tiny portion of a shelf right now.

  6. Dave – a modern hero. Not only a great writer but funny tweeter on University Challenge, Bake Off and many other aspects of modern life. How about a “Very Dave Problems” book next?

  7. Ooooooooh yuss! I could give them to my OH who is a fan, as a cheeky but rather marvellous Christmas present! (Ssssssh, he’s possibly reading…) And I could sneak a read myself first. Is that REALLY BAD?
