Book Launch: Pure Poison by Hawkings Austin

As DragonCon has now started in earnest, and despite the fact that the official launch party is not until Sunday, Pure Poison by Hawkings Austin, a Purity Wellman novel, is now available in ebook and paperback. It’s an intriguing and entertaining mystery with likeable characters and a well thought out approach to urban fantasy that I’ve not seen before.

You can listen to an excerpt in the video below:


Purity Wellman’s family thinks she died in 1958. She should have been so lucky. No, the devil stole her soul on her very doorstep. He was trying to get her parents. He got her instead.

She spent eight years in Don Bello’s fishbowl and fifty years in Purgatory before her brother sang her back into the daylight. As close as Knoxville lies to her Appalachian hometown, Purity has travelled far from anything she’s ever known, and she’s not going back to that fishbowl.
But, it turns out Purity isn’t as helpless as she used to be. For one thing, now she can sing. And for another, when it comes to vampires, she’s poison.

The Bone God by Hawkings Austin

As DragonCon and the associated new Superversive Press book launches rapidly approach, it is time I announced some book launches that occurred two weeks ago. The first of these is The Bone God by Hawkings Austin, sequel to The Broken Man:

It features one of the most terrifying monsters I have ever heard of, and some very interesting challenges and developments that both Waylaid and Piju have to face. Not for the faint-hearted, but an engaging and entertaining read.

Prophesy has shaken the foundations of the world. Three kingdoms search for a king, while an evil sorcerer has raised a spirit to destroy the fragile peace of the Daen Empire. Piju fights to free the slaves of Ard, and Waylaid must find a way to defeat a god which has the power to take his bones.
