Not a bad read, but not a good read either. There are much better vampire tales out there right now, so I would recommend finding one of them. Really great novel.

Not necessary to read the series, but will add to the enjoyment of both as they both reference specific events occurring at the same time in both. Over the next few weeks, I will be going through each of my books in order of release, and talking about how they came to be. This was a term I had never heard of before. Sure, some gloriously fantastic books were out there, but more and more I was finding them all so samey and that was making it dull and not feeding the thing inside that wanted more.

I ate them up like a hungry little word-goblin. A few stood out. Darren Humphries was, and still is, bloody good, but therein lies part of the motivation because some many were so diabolically shit that I figured I could do better.

The Undead Day One…how it came to be

In truth, the seed had already been planted the second I realised Three Feet of Sky was self-pubbed, everything after that was just watering that seed and letting it grow roots. At that point, I had been a police officer for about 13 or 14 years. My career was going well but there was an itch and it needed scratching. So, in May , I sat down at my dining room table with an old laptop and got to thinking about it, and the single most brilliant piece of advice I saw then, and that still rings so true now, is to write the book you want to read.

I adored post-apocalyptic literature. The End Of The World in all guises and ways. One was the lack of detail.

Most books covered the terrible incident, whatever it may be, and then picked the story up down the line, five or ten years later. I wanted to see the what happened on the second day, on the third, I craved that detail to satisfy my police-officer hunger for precision. Okay, so I would write the first day of something happening.

Like a day one thing. I could even call it Day One. Characters were either gun-toting, perfectly defined, muscular heroic types that had access to every gun ever made, or they were festering in their own misery and pottering about scavenging for food while their skin peeled away from illness and disease. I wanted a British chap, self-effacing and filled with the same level of self-loathing as the rest of us, but with that spark, that hunger for survival I had seen in so many people during so many years of policing.

That fight or flight instinct that made many run away screaming in panic, while a few stood their ground and found hidden depths of courage and fortitude they never knew they had. Like oh my god it was so shit. A five year old with a crayon could have done a better job. It was both simple and simply written. The sentence structure was incredibly basic. My grammar was and still is appalling, my syntax, structure and er, just about everything was bloody shocking.

No no no.

The scenes now where he is in the managers meeting were added later during re-writes. A five year old with a crayon could have done a better job. It was both simple and simply written. The sentence structure was incredibly basic.

The Undead Day Onehow it came to be - R R Haywood

My grammar was and still is appalling, my syntax, structure and er, just about everything was bloody shocking. No no no. The scenes now where he is in the managers meeting were added later during re-writes. Some mates read it and duly ripped the piss, but they were honest in their feedback that it was okay, nothing great, nothing wonderful.

I fiddled about a few times, checked it over and thought sod it and just uploaded it to Amazon. Of course, it was an instant success and I immediately quit my job and went to live in Brazil on board my luxury yacht. I love zombies novels but was completely let down by this very poor read. There is no natural flow and its very repetitive almost like a childs book.

Which pretty much sums it up. Looking back now, Day One was simply putting words on a page. That was it.

#COFFINHOP2014: Days with the Undead: Book One

Nothing more was expected and nothing more was really delivered. What did happen, however, was that I fell head over heels in love with writing. I was smitten. The bug was there, and so within a very short space of time, I started writing the next one. Day One UK. Day One US. Damn,never guessed you were a cop! I always thought you used to work in a tesco shop at one stage.

Loved the first book. I do think I booked a few though. Stay Safe! Well I quite enjoyed Day One, enough to carry on with the rest of the series, which I think is bloody good. The writing style is natural not poncey and you have a great way of discribing your characters, you really feel you know them. This, together with a bloody good storyline certainly kept me for one hooked.
