Pandamoon Publishing Signs Dave Housley and Acquires THIS DARKNESS GOT TO GIVE
Housely's THIS DARKNESS GOT TO GIVE Is a Vampire Novel With a Musical Twist
"THIS DARKNESS GOT TO GIVE follows Cain, a vampire who has chosen to lead a careful and very unconventional life. Cain is a Grateful Dead groupie! At a show, Cain takes a tab of LSD which brings about a painful and violent reaction resulting in the one thing Cain has always been careful to avoid, murder. With bodies mounting behind him and the Dead playing the final dates of their fated 1995 tour, Cain must elude Jenkins, an FBI agent who knows more about vampires than most, which can only mean trouble for Cain," stated Zara Kramer, Publisher of Pandamoon Publishing.
"The moment he gives in to temptation, Cain, the Deadhead vampire, begins a downward spiral of murder, drugs and Rock and Roll that he must fight to get under control," Kramer added. "Housley's novel is a great addition to Pandamoon's impressive catalog of fantasy novels, including the bestselling Crimson Forest by Christine Gabriel."
Housley is one of the founding and fiction editors at Barrelhouse, a nationally recognized literary magazine and arts community that bridges the gap between serious art and pop culture. He's also one of the founders and organizers of the Conversations and Connections writer's conference, which has been held in Washington DC for the past decade, and Pittsburgh for the past three years.
When asked why he chose to sign with Pandamoon, Housley said, "I was interested in Pandamoon initially for a few reasons, mostly that they had published some books I really liked from writers I respect, specifically Steph Post and Laura Ellen Scott. I also noticed that Pandamoon was publishing both paranormal and crime books, and I had always thought of my book as a paranormal noir. Once I started to look into Pandamoon, I was really interested in the marketing approach and thought that, as an editor, I could learn a few things, and as a writer, this book might have a chance to get out to an audience wider than any of my previous work."
