News, Fiction Updates & General Musings

New releases…

It’s been a while since I posted on here. Damn, nine months in fact. The fiction writing business takes up pretty much all of my working time nowadays, so sadly don’t have a lot of time to share thoughts here.

But anyway, just wanted to give you a heads up if you solely follow me via this blog that there have been a bunch of new releases since November 2016, when I last posted.

They are…

Survival (After the Storm, Book 3)

The World After series

Dead Days: Season Nine

If you head over to their pages, you’ll find all the relevant links and info.

Hope you’re all having a great 2017. I’ll check in at the end of the year with a proper year-end summary.

Until then… happy reading.


Collapse: After the Storm, Book 2 Now Available


I hope you enjoyed reading Blackout. As promised, I wanted to launch the second book — Collapse — exactly a month after book one.

So here it is!

First of all, before I go into Collapse, I just wanted to give an enormous thanks for all your support, not just of this series but of everything. It’s especially daunting launching a new series. Although I had full confidence in the story, it’s still impossible to know how a book will be received.

To say the response has been “nice” would be a severe understatement.

Blackout has been in the top 10 of the post-apocalyptic charts ever since launch. It’s my best book launch ever. And it wouldn’t have been possible without your support.

So, thank you. Seriously. I am so, so grateful.

As for Collapse, well, if you enjoyed book one, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this too. It’s a little more fast-paced than the first book, and a little more story and character focused. And there’s some nasty villains this time round.

Without further ado, CLICK HERE to download a copy of Collapse.

And here’s your description:

The thrilling sequel to Blackout: After the Storm.

A year has passed and Will is adapting to life as a survivor in an EMP-struck Britain.

When Will learns that someone he loves is stranded at the other side of the country, he is forced on a journey across a treacherous world filled with all kinds of foes.

But saving them isn’t going to be easy. Not when there is a group waiting right outside the gates of his tight-knit community, just waiting for the perfect moment to strike…

Collapse is the second book in the After the Storm post apocalyptic series by Ryan Casey, author of Dead Days and Infection Z. It is sure to delight fans of the author’s trademark complex characters, rapid pacing, and unexpected twists and turns.

Enjoy this book. I had a lot of fun writing it. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

I’ll have more info on the release of Survival, the third and final After the Storm book, in a few weeks time. When you do finish Collapse though, you can pre-order Survival right HERE.

Thanks, and have a great day.


Blackout: After the Storm is now available


I’m thrilled to finally, FINALLY announce that Blackout: After the Storm is here.

Okay, it’s a month late. I apologise for that. It’s mainly because I’ve been working at getting the second book out exactly a month after book one. As well as juggling other projects, like a pen name series, and a certain eighth season of something… Yeah, it’s been hectic.

But anyway, Blackout is now here, and if you’re a fan of my post apocalyptic stuff–or any end of the world stuff for that matter–I think you’re going to love it.

The premise is simple: a series of EMP strikes devastate Britain’s infrastructure. One man and his dog are forced to survive this world, in search of their family.

But the story itself isn’t so simple. There’s, as always, complex characters, and a whole host of unexpected twists along the way.

I’m really, really proud of this book. It’s easily my most research-intensive release. I feel like I have a basic knowledge of how I’d survive such a disaster (which is rooted in reality, btw. Scary I know). Only I’m nowhere near prepared…


And here’s your description:

A determined father. An impossible journey…

Will Stuartson is having the worst month of his life. His wife is leaving him, he can’t see his daughter anymore, and he has been kicked out of the family home. He sees no better opportunity to take a trip into the Scottish wilderness with his trusty dog, Bouncer. And a bottle or two of whisky.

But Will’s retreat is interrupted when a devastating series of EMP strikes hit the country. All electrical and battery power, from cars to watches, is down. Will is cut off from society and forced into a world where survivalism is required to stay alive, and where the sudden lack of communication is driving the country to destruction.

Now, forced into a dangerous, primal world where the elements and other people all pose a threat, Will must make the long trek back down to Preston in order to find and save his wife and daughter.

But even with a basic knowledge of survivalism, surviving is anything but simple in this harrowing new world…

Blackout is the first book in the After the Storm post apocalyptic series by Ryan Casey, author of Dead Days and Infection Z. It is sure to delight fans of the author’s trademark complex characters, rapid pacing, and unexpected twists and turns.


Enjoy this book. I had a lot of fun writing it. I can’t wait to hear what you think.

I’ll have more info on the release of Collapse, the sequel, in a few weeks time. When you do finish Blackout though, you can pre-order Collapse right HERE.

Thanks, and have a great day.


Dead Days Season Seven Now Available

dead days season 7Hi folks,

The seventh season of Dead Days has just gone live, and I couldn’t be more thrilled!

The gap of three months between IZ5 and this release might not seem long, but it’s a pretty meaty break for me. Rest assured, I’ve been working really hard on Dead Days and other projects, all of which I can’t wait to share with you over the rest of the year.

I’m really impressed with how Dead Days Season Seven turned out. The whole thing was intentionally paced so that the dread and discomfort builds with every single page. It’s full of post-apocalyptic action, character drama, and a hell of a lot of twists and turns. Rest assured, I’m particularly proud of this season. I think it’s the best yet. I guess I’m supposed to say that, but I really, really believe it is.

Here’s your buy links. If you’re still on the fence, I’ve shared a link to download the full first episode a little further below.

Infection Z 5 Now Available

Infection Z 5Hi everyone,

A quick note to say Infection Z 5, the final book in the Infection Z series, is now available at Amazon.

You can grab your copy at the following links:

Amazon US

Amazon (Non-US)

You can also read the book as a part of your Kindle Unlimited subscription.

Seeing as I haven’t posted in a while, I thought I’d take this opportunity to share what I’m working on right now.

Firstly, Dead Days Season Seven! Yes, the seventh series is well in production. I’m taking a bit longer with this one as there’s some intricate plot elements I need to craft to perfection, so I’m sure you’ll understand. It’ll be out this summer, and I’ll have more info nearer the time and over the coming weeks.

I’m so excited about the next three seasons of Dead Days. I’ve been working at putting together a riveting new arc that I think you’re going to absolutely love. One of the scenes gave me goosebumps… and I made the damned thing up! I suppose that says something. Hopefully something good.

I’ve also got the sixth and final McDone novel to finish, too. This one was due back in January, so I apologise for the delay. Again, I’ve been taking a little more time to make sure it’s as good as I can make it. There’s a really intriguing mystery at the core of this one, as well as the fallout from the explosive ending to book five. Expect twists, turns, and even more McDone grumbling. All the classics.

Cheers for the support. I really appreciate it.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the latest book!
