VJ Books Presents Author David Moody!

Author David MoodyDavid Moody grew up on a diet of horror movies and post-apocalyptic fiction. After reading Wyndham's Day of the Triffids and H G Wells' War of the Worlds, and watching the original Night of the Living Dead in the middle of the night during an epic thunderstorm, he was hooked. 'It was the power of those stories which really got to me, the way that events outside the control of any authority might one day impact on absolutely everyone.'

After leaving school and ending up working in a High Street Bank (enough to make anyone contemplate Armageddon on a regular basis), Moody decided he wanted to make the kind of films he spent so much time watching. Unfortunately, with no relevant training or expertise, it was never going to be easy. So he looked for an alternative route and found one. 'I'd always enjoyed writing, and I knew I could string words together and make them entertaining, so putting the stories I'd wanted to film into novel form was a logical solution.'

Within six months he'd written Straight to You which was published by a small UK publisher. Sales figures were microscopic, but Moody immediately started work on several other books.

By the time his next book Autumn was finished, the Internet had begun to change the way information and media was being shared and he saw an opportunity. 'I figured I had two choices,' he explains. 'I could either try and sell the novel to a publisher and hope for more success than last time, or I could resign myself to the fact I probably wasn't going to sell thousands of books and make loads of money and do something different. I decided to give the book away and used it to build up a readership.'

Autumn became an on-line phenomenon, racking up more than half a million downloads and spawning a series of sequels. In 2005 Moody formed 'Infected Books' - his own publishing house through which he independently published his books as paperbacks and ebooks. 'I used to hate the term "self-published"' it conjures up images of awful books which really shouldn't be published. The reality is that lots of authors who could get their books 'traditionally' released, choose to retain control and publish their books themselves. The availability of Print on Demand technology and the increasing popularity of ebooks makes it possible for any writer to get their work onto the shelves of bookstores and online retailers on their own.'

Moody is currently working on a number of book and film projects, for both mainstream and independent release.
