I've started doing a collaboration novel with Sean T Page, author of The Official Zombie Handbook and founder of The Ministry of Zombies.
Don't want to go into too many details at the moment but the book will be set in the already established "Ministry of Zombies" universe. The title of the book is Meta-horde and its coming along very nicely at the moment. The outline has been done, and changed a few times. The word count is about 20k so far and ticking along pretty well. Its been a pleasure working with Sean and we both have high hopes for this project.
I'll post a few more updates as things progress.

Here's the line up for Wild Wolf's forthcoming zombie anthology. Some really big names in there and its a huge honour to be alongside them. Twin teenagers (named Jack and Katie after my nephew and neice) are on one last holiday with their father before they start to do their own thing. When the dead start to rise it might be their last in more ways than one.

Sonar4 Landing Dock Reviews just posted a wonderful review for The Church.
Please pop over to their site to have a look.
I'm really pleased with what they had to say.
Here is a part of what they said-
McCuaig adds a special way of dealing with survival at the end of the world. He shows people in the most human condition ever told in a story. Faith, hope and what people long for in a crisis is shown here with eloquence.
The Church is an eye opener for people to look at certain others in a position of authority where faith takes priority, where fear of dying will make you do almost anything, listen to anyone, follow anyone.
The Church is a page-turner. It is not only entertaining, but mind-blowing. It is one that I know I will read over and over again.
