Hater and Zombie Stimulus Package

A week ago, I listened to Daniel Suarez talk about his success in self-publishing Daemon that is now being published by Dutton. It's pretty rare to hear about these successes, but here's another one:

DAVID MOODY self-published Hater online in 2006. Without an agent, he succeeded in selling the film rights to Guillermo del Toro (director, Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy 1 & 2, and the upcoming Hobbit series) and Mark Johnson (producer, The Chronicles of Narnia). With the official publication of Hater (2/17/2009), David is poised to make a significant mark as a writer of “farther out” fiction of all varieties.

In the tradition of H. G. Wells and Richard Matheson, Hater is one man’s story of his place in a world gone mad — a world infected with fear, violence, and HATE. www.RUaHater.com

There are first two chapters of the book available at IMDB and a short viral video for the book:

In unrelated (but also horror-inspired) news, Mark Henry, an urban fantasy author is holding a raffle (which he is calling a Zombie Stimulus Package) on his blog where you can win dinner & movie, coffee & gas, or books. In order to enter you have to pre-order a copy of Road Trip of the Living Dead which is coming out on February 24th. For more details check out his post.
