The Woodman Book Tour + Giveaway

The Roads of Hell

The Woodman, Book 1

By G.H. Bright

Genre: Post Apocalyptic, Dystopian, SciFi

POST APOCALYPTIC, yet so much more!

“Modified Ebola has decimated the globe, handfuls of survivors eke out an

existence whilst others are intent on building from the ashes a world

of unimaginable pain and horror. The Woodman fights to keep the world

from tipping completely over the edge whilst battling his own demons.

Imagine a world where nothing is easy. No electricity, electronic

communications fuel or running water. Imagine that world came so fast

there was nothing you could do about it. No preparation, no

stockpiling of goods. One day you flick a switch and a fire comes on,

the next day you need to learn to make fire to get warm and keep

animals away.

No law, no order, survival of the fittest is the name of the game. From

seven billion human beings to a few million spread out across the

globe almost overnight.

Ebola has attacked the human race, virtually wiping it from the face of the

planet. For those who survived, the struggle is just beginning and

for some the nightmare is just starting.

A madman, now free of prison hospital builds an army and marches on

Coast Town with the intent of taking for his own ends. Coast Town is

a haven on the south coast of England, a refuse for the few survivors

to gather and start again. Three years on from the dark day when

Ebola first struck, the people face another challenge, this one

perhaps all the more frightening because it might not kill you, just


Duke Woods, The Woodman, stands in the way of the madman. Duke has the

power to stop him and a score to settle, too. With the help of

another man, a new friend, they take the battle to the madman known

as The Black Pope.

Will Duke survive?

Can The Black Pope be beaten?

Will the Ebola virus, known to all as The Death, return?

As Duke’s past comes back to haunt him so the battle for life takes off,

with not only his life in the balance but that of Coast Town,too.

The Fires of Hell

The Woodman Book 2

This second instalment starts six weeks after Book one, the Roads of Hell,


The reluctant hero in the making, Duke Woods, The Woodman, has contracted

Ebola, otherwise known simply as “The Death”.

The Black Pope is still alive and kicking, unknown to most, and The

Woodman has a new friend.

Michelle, a six-year-old girl remains at his side watching and waiting whilst

The Death ravages his body. Hannah, the love of his life is not

allowed near them in case she and the child she carries become

infected and the communities, at the news of his contagion, go into


Hannah is nearly six months pregnant, Sue is seven months into her

pregnancy, and several other women are carrying babies too.

As Duke recovers, he finds the Army is still in place and helping

everyone it can, and the Elders are still unable to achieve even the

simplest of things. Coast Town looks to be thriving again with the

new influx of people but as always, trouble is just around the corner

and new horror surfaces.

Just when things looks good for the survivor’s, just as they begin to

grasp skills forgotten, new evils and hard times rush to compound

issues and make life a far greater struggle than it already was. The

Death wiped out 90% of Mankind; illness and disease took even more.

Those that lived through it, instead of banding together, seem unable to

change their ways and people find they still have to fight Mankind’s

greatest enemy, Mankind itself.

The Gates of Hell

The Woodman Book 3

This instalment begins six hours after Duke Woods, AKA The Woodman, has

decided he must leave Coast Town.

If he leaves, they stand a chance of negotiation with the small army

coming their way and he gets to go home to his family. If he stays,

the army will want his head. He has to try and flee, regardless of

how it looks to others.

The ‘reluctant hero in the making’, fights his way out with bow and

arrow, and arrives home only to find his family in mortal danger.

Then, in a twist of fate; Duke is taken prisoner and escorted to

Dover Castle. There he has, under threat of death, to fight for his

freedom and his sanity as the true horrors of a madman come to light.

Seth Windsor is insane and out for blood, a truly bad concoction, and

he will only be happy when Duke is forced to fight for his life.

Sue goes to other lands to start a new and joyful life whilst Coast Town

burns; only to find the sweet talking man was really a serpent in


Duke fights evil time and again, fashioning himself unwittingly into a

hero regardless of his wish to not be.

Years of peace follow, communities come together, trade together and grow,

and a network of towns and villages live in harmony with the people

of the woods. Harmony that is, until evil rears its ugly head once

more in the form of feral kids linked to Seth Windsor. The Death is

still out there, perhaps it always will be, and evil men still

rampage across the lands too. The peace is shattered by these feral

kids and a new terror from the north. Will peace ever really come to

The Woodman?

life and the lives of those he loves, Duke must defeat the terror

from the north and deal with Senator Horst whilst keeping his people

All Hell Broke Loose

The Woodman Book 5

Modified Ebola was created to wipe out the masses and cut down the numbers of

humans on planet Earth. Three differing strains – due to natural

mutation and the meddling of the mega-rich – has created a bleak

world for those lucky enough to survive. This is book five in the

saga and, whereas you might not have read books one – four, you can

pick it up by jumping right in here. Life is peaceful once more, the

newcomers are getting used to this way of life in southern England

and Duke Woods is a dad again. Evil, however comes from across the

Channel and threatens the very existence he has fought so hard to

build. If the virus wasn’t bad enough this new terror rips the heart

out of not just Coast Town but The Woodman too as this battle becomes

personal and painful.

Hell Hath No Fury

The Woodman Book 6

Three differing factions head for Duke’s Lands. All have different

agendas, one wants to live in peace and be friends whilst another is

happy to die for the cause just so long as The Woodman dies too, and

the third faction – an eight hundred strong army – wishes for

nothing more than total domination. Attacked on different fronts,

abandoned by The West and with his lands diminishing rapidly, Duke

Woods has the fight of his life on his hands. It is a fight that will

cost dearly, many people will die in battle and the return of The

Death will take its share too. Stretched to the limits of manpower

and with the weather against them, the Marines and Fighting Men stand

side by side with The Woodman and family in a fight to the death to

save Coast Town. This is a win or lose-it- all battle to the death.

Contains graphic violence and sexual content, not for the squeamish.

I live on the South coast of England, Sussex to be exact, but I was

born in Hampshire.

When not writing I Instruct motor vehicle studies, including computer

diagnosis & diagnostics on modern systems. I love the beach,

being social, walking the beach/woods and family life (not in that

order) and real ale.

The Woodman saga – book one written in 2000 – is set in a world where

modified Ebola has decimated human life as we know it. Duke Woods

fights to bring peace and stability to life again but also has to

fight his demons to do so.

A cross between Mad Max meets Game of Thrones, meets Contagion meets

Robin Hood, this is the story of a modern day hero trying to do the

best for everyone and putting himself in the line of fire to do it.
