Eduard Joseph

Biography

Eduard Joseph lives in Cape Town South Africa and has been writing since a young age. His first book "Freaks want love too" was rejected by numerous publishers in 2005.

In 2013 he decided to go the self-publishing route and his first novel hit online stores. It was a success on Amazon.com until it was removed by the author due to royalty issues.

Eduard Joseph loves writing what's in his heart, and thus writes about anything from romance, comedy, horror and suspense.

A WORD FROM THE AUTHOR:
I have some bad news for fans of the Zac Zombie series… the release of the fourth and final book is being delayed until further notice. I'm halfway done with it and was suddenly hit with writer's block. I don't want to rush the ending as I feel it wouldn't be fair to fans if I simply wrote an ending to get it over with.

I've decided not to continue my 'Tales of Revenge' series, as the first book 'Snapped' isn't doing too well in online stores. Maybe I was wrong? Perhaps readers don't like gore and violence…

'The Tree' is a new addition to my 'Frighteners: Horror Anthology for Children' and proves enjoyable for kids and adults alike.

I'm currently focusing on other projects, but will continue to publish books every chance I get.
