More FREE stuff for our newsletter subscribers! Coming soon!

Shadowy soldiers, representing Shadow Company. Cunning pun eh? All rights etc to NBC News

As you probably already know, we have a newsletter that is sent out to subscribers on a roughly monthly basis containing bits and bobs that we think would interest them.

All subscribers already get two free short stories as a way of saying thank you but now they’re going to get something (in addition mind!) far, far better.

A novella. That’s right. A novella of roughly 25,000 words and written by Matthew Sylvester will be made available to all subscribers absolutely FREE of charge! Non-subscribers will have to pay a minimum (depending on how Amazon plays it) of £0.99 to get their hands on it.

Here’s the WIP synopsis. This novella is a blend of two series of books planned for the future, so will give you a good idea of what Matthew has planned.

Shadow Company is a special forces unit comprised of men and women that are officially dead and buried. They are the unofficially living embodiment of plausible deniability, sent into places where even the SAS don’t dare to tread.

Now, Britain and the entire world face their greatest challenge with the seemingly innocuous outbreak of the Christmas Flu and then the deadly, flesh rotting disease of Necrotizing Fasciitis Majoris (NCM). With the country split in two by the Containment Zone, Shadow Company are dropped into London to set up a forward operations base to allow the government to take back the capital.

Viventes Mors: Shadow Company – Part 1 will be the first of a new series from Matthew Sylvester, that charts the spread of NCM and the start of Viventes Mors, the Living Death.

If you want to get your hands on this FREE novella as soon as it’s released, all you have to do is SIGN UP to the NEWSLETTER, it’s that’s simple. Then, once it has gone through all the usual stages of publishing, it will be made available for download. So what are you waiting for? SIGN UP!


About mattsylvester
