Good news about my first novel - Hunting the Moon Tribe

My first novel Hunting the Moon Tribe is on the way soon from Afterbirth books. While Afterbirth is closing down Karen wants to finish out the books she was planning to publish which include books by myself and Bradley Sands. All Afterbirth books will stay in print so I'll still be selling copies of Screams and Moon Tribe no problem.

I should be getting the cover art this month and blurbs are starting to come including this first from bizarro author Jordan Krall. (check the description of Jordan's latest book at the bottom of this post)

“Remember that old Shaw Brothers / Hammer Studios flick The Legend of the 7 Golden Vampires? HUNTING THE MOON TRIBE is what that movie should have been. It is an extremely entertaining epic of kick-ass martial arts and bloody horror. Agranoff not only dazzles us with breathtaking action scenes and vampire violence but also tugs at our heartstrings with realistic family drama and romance. It’s a scary martial arts fantasy that will please just about everyone. David Agranoff is a gifted storyteller.” - Jordan Krall Author of Fistful of Feet and Squid pulp Blues

Can't wait to read Hunting the Moon Tribe? Well in January you'll get a chance to read the the prequel entitled The Fallen Guardian’s Mandate. It will be published as web only serial on the the fantastic Freezine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. My short story “A Planet of Our Own” appeared in the July issue alongside a serialized novella Sky pirates by one favorite authors John Shirley.

The prequel will be the headlining story of January, featuring what basically amounts to the pilot episode and will introduce Xu (pronounced Shee-you) a fallen Shoalin monk.It is also a kungfu Wuxia pan Dark Fantasy think like X-files meets the Bride with White Hair. Each month the freezine will contain another chapter that will continue the story. I hope you will check it out. If you follow the the web-novel and read Hunting The Moon Tribe when it comes out you'll get a extra special reveal in the story line that will bring both together.

In the mean time don't forget that my short story collection Screams From a Dying World is still for sale. You can buy it at the Afterbirth books website, bizarro central, Amazon, or Barnes and Nobles. So here is the promised info About Jordan Krall check out his website and his book. I can't wait to read Fistful of Feet, I read the prequel story in the first issue of bizarro magazine and loved it.

From the back cover:
A bizarro tribute to Spaghetti westerns, HP Lovecraft, and foot fetish enthusiasts. Screwhorse, Nevada is legendary for its violent and unusual pleasures, but when a mysterious gunslinger drags a wooden donkey into the desert town, the stage is set for a bloodbath unlike anything the west has ever seen. His name is Calamaro, and he’s from New Jersey.
Featuring Cthulhu-worshipping Indians, a woman with four feet, a Giallo-esque serial killer, a crazed gunman who is obsessed with sucking on candy, Syphilis-ridden mutants, ass juice, burping pistols, sexually transmitted tattoos, and a house devoted to the freakiest fetishes, Jordan Krall’s Fistful of Feet is the weirdest western ever written.
