Advance Praise for Rabid Heart
“Zombies and the end of days don't stand a chance against true love. Jeremy Wagner's RABID HEART is good, clean apocalyptic fun.”
— Alma Katsu, author of THE HUNGER
"Just when you think you've heard every love story, along comes RABID HEART. My man Jeremy Wagner proves once again he's as much of a wild man with words as he is with his guitar. This book is sick and sweet, and I say that with respect!"
-- Peter Blauner, Ny Times bestselling author of THE INTRUDER and SUNRISE HIGHWAY
New York Times Bestselling Author, Peter Straub (A Dark Matter, Ghost Story, and The Talisman— with Stephen King) says, “Jeremy is a pretty impressive dude.”
Wagner has written lyrics to hundreds of songs spanning several albums with his international death-metal band, Broken Hope. He has a following of rabid fans worldwide, yet aside from his music career, Wagner writes dark fiction and short works full time.
His published works include the best-selling debut novel, The Armageddon Chord, the story “Romance Ain’t Dead” for the anthology, Hungry For Your Love (St. Martin’s Press), the story “The Creatures From Craigslist” in the anthology Fangbangers: An Erotic Anthology of Fangs, Claws, Sex and Love (Ravenous Romance), the seasonal bio tale “When I Scared Myself Out of Halloween” (Shock Totem Books), his horror writing essay-exercise in the Now Write! Edition of Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Horror (Bantam Books), and most recently, his short story “Pit Stop” in the A Tribute Anthology to Deadworld (Riverdale Avenue Books).
Wagner's novel, The Armageddon Chord, peaked at #4 on Barnes & Noble’s Top 10 paperback Bestseller List and peaked at #9 on B&N’s Top 100 overall Bestseller List in the first week of release. The novel also earned a Hiram Award, a first-round ballot Stoker Award Nomination, and received critical acclaim in Publisher's Weekly and Rolling Stone magazine among many other worldwide media.
The Afraid imprint of Riverdale Avenue Books will re-release a revised edition of The Armageddon Chord in December 2018 with new cover artwork and more.
