Launch Day: Meat by Dane Cobain!

Hi, folks! Dane here, and today I’m proud to announce that it’s launch day for my new novel, Meat.

Set on a factory farm and following the outbreak of a mysterious zoonotic disease, I started work on it back in 2015. Seeing as it’s being released in time for Hallowe’en during the middle of a global pandemic, I think I timed it quite nicely.

The book was edited by Pam Elise Harris with cover design by Larch Gallagher and illustrations by Steve Woodcock. You can view the blurb and the cover below.

Veterinarian Tom Copeland takes a job at a factory farm called Sunnyvale after a scandal at his suburban practice. His job is to keep the animals alive for long enough to get them to slaughter.

But there are rumours of a strange creature living beneath the complex, accidents waiting to happen on brutal production lines and the threat of zoonotic disease from the pigs, sheep, cows, chickens and fish that the complex houses.

Suddenly, disaster rocks Sunnyvale and cleaners, butchers, security guards and clerical staff alike must come together under the ruthless leadership of CEO John MacDonald. Together, they’ll learn what happens when there’s a sudden change to the food chain.

Bon appétit.

Meat is now available in both paperback and ebook formats from all major retailers. You can click here to check it out on Amazon or here to take a look at it on Goodreads.

On the up and up

Hi, folks! Dane here, and today I wanted to give you a little update on how things are going. It’s been a weird few months to say the least, but the good news is that I’ve been getting back to writing after having some sort of accidental break from it all.

The main thing that I’ve been working on recently is a ghost story about a teenage barmaid called Suki. It’s based on a real local legend and is for an anthology of horror BookTubers that I’m submitting to.

I’ve also been getting back to the rewrites of Meat, a horror novel set on a factory farm. I’ve had my first round of edits back, and so there are some pretty significant rewrites to do, but we’re making progress.

After that, I have the third and final round of edits to complete on Leipfold #3, a collection of short stories called Jailed and Other Stories. But there’s no rush on that one because we’re still gearing up to publish book #2, The Tower Hill Terror, which is due out in April of this year from Encircle Publications.

And once all that’s done, I can finally get back to writing my satirical novel, Monsters of Rock. It’s been on hold for a while, so it’ll be good to get back to it. I’ll hopefully update you on that sometime soon.

In the meantime, thanks as always for stopping by and sharing your support, and be sure to give me a follow on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter for more. I’ll see you soon!
