Hi, I'm new here. My first novel Dead Beat was released a couple of days ago by Wild Wolf Publishing. It's an action packed zombie story set in an English rural village.

I'm 35 years old and recently emigrated with my wife and 4 year old daughter from the North of England to the sunny climes of South Australia ...although it's the middle of their winter at the moment!

I've got high hopes for Dead Beat, and so far it is doing well!

Cheers, Remy

Why do I write novel? Well like a lot of British boys I grew up reading a lot of James Herbert and Stephen King novels. I loved them and I always wanted to write my own horror tale one day. In my mind I put it off a lot, but last summer at 34 years old I finally knucked down and got on with it. It took me 6 months give or take to finish Dead Beat.

My good pal Iain McKinnon (Domain of the Dead) is organising a crew to film a book trailer for DEAD BEAT in mid-August in central Scotland. I've seen the story board, and it look very cool! I'll post up a link when the post production is finished in early September.

If anyone fancies being an extra here are the details;

Book trailer for Remy Porters Dead Beat.Filming for Remy Porters Bead Beat book trailer will take place on the 13th/14th/15th of August. The locations will be around Edinburgh, Livingston & Forth.

We need extras to play "zombies" and some extras to play "worried towns folk" own transport is preferable.

If you are interested e-mail [email protected]

Got a decent review for Dead Beat in Gorezone Magazine today;

 ‘Old people smell like mould.’ Can’t go wrong with an opening sentence like that. Dead Beat gives a few clues away in its title. Yes there’s a cop. Yes there’s an end-of-the-world zombie Armageddon scenario. Dead Beat takes a few liberties ...with tired conventions (hints of conspiracy there are in places) in what is essentially yet another first-person book-long description of zombie Armageddon. Remy Porter writes at a brisk pace, with enough command of characterisation to make us warm to the characters. There’s a lively wit to his style, even though when it comes to the horror there’s little here that will make your skin crawl. Dead Beat is a ‘seen it, done it’ title, but zombie fans will find it far better than most examples of its kind.

 

Dead Beat has been doing brilliantly on Amazon UK kindles. It was upto 92 in the rankings this morning, (3rd in horror!)

Good recent review by Gregory Solis, author of Rise and Walk;

'The story and characters were top notch. Like another great Zombie author, Joe McKinney, Porter works in Law Enforcement. His real-life experience is evident in his portrayal of the Policeman protagonist. I found his characterization of Johnny, the Officer, to be very believable. He was tough but not superhuman. He's just a man trying to keep some order during the flesh-eating apocalypse. The villain of the work is a bastard of the first order. Porter does a great job at giving us an antagonist, and his provincial prick of a son, that the reader will quickly hate. This book is paced well, has the gore that zombie fans will love, and includes some really creepy scenes. I highly recommend Dead Beat.'
