Happy Birthday to THE ESTUARY!

To celebrate the second anniversary of The Estuary, I’m giving away three copies (winners choose either paperback or ebook) in a random drawing which will take place on June 30th 2011. The Estuary was published by Permuted Press on June 30th 2009. This competition is open to contestants worldwide.

Here’s a little about the book:

Journalist, John Pender has returned to his home town of Whiteshead to rekindle his marriage. Ex-British intelligence officer Dave Johnson has arrived to isolate himself after his fiancé is murdered during a mission that went terribly wrong. But excavations for the new shopping centre unearth a mysterious contagion that threatens to throw their lives into chaos.

Now the residents of Whiteshead are trapped within a quarantine zone with the military on one side and ravenous hordes of living dead on the other. Escape is no longer an option.

Far out in the mouth of the estuary a small Keep sits forlornly surrounded by an apron of jagged rocks. This refuge has always been unassailable, a place of myth and legend that has grown in folklore through the years. Now, it’s the survivors’ only hope of sanctuary. But there are thousands of flesh-eating infected between them and the Keep and time is running out …

“I want to immediately read a sequel and grab popcorn for the big screen movie adaption! This book is a definite recommendation for any fan of the horror and zombie subgenre as well as Gunn’s magnificent and adventurous writing style that will grab your bloody beating heart and never let go!” Fangoria

“some great action sequences, particularly towards the end of the novel. Gunn is able to write tension-filled scenes that kept me turning the pages. Gunn has created some very frightening monsters” Fatally

“The Estuary, not your average Zombie Novel. Thank God! Derek Gunn gets it right with this novel of horror.”

Good luck!
