Welcome to the 2019 Hawthorn Moon Blog Tour

If you’re looking for some summer reading, you’ve come to the right place! My Hawthorn Moon blog tour is a great time to catch up on the latest titles, find out what’s coming soon, and get a behind-the-scenes peak at the characters and the series. Come check out what’s new and have a look at the coming attractions!

The Splintered Crown is the first in a brand new series by Larry N. Martin. Come along for the adventure as a group of down-at-the-heels friends are sent by a demigoddess on a dangerous quest in hopes of making their fortune and being able to escape the hardships of their lives in the city.  If you love portal fantasy and quest adventures, this is a perfect summer read!

Convicts & Exiles is the prequel to Ice Forged in the Ascendant Kingdoms Saga, and is the final work planned for this post-apocalyptic medieval epic fantasy series. This book fills in the six year ‘gap’ at the beginning of Ice Forged, telling the story of Blaine McFadden’s years in Velant Prison and as a colonist on Edgeland, and shows how he and his friends—Kestel, Piran, Verran and Dawe—came together as found family to save the kingdom.

Then there’s our newest audiobook, Spells Salt and Steel: Season One. Catch the adventures of snarky monster hunter Mark Wojcik as he battles monsters, vengeful ghosts and creepy cryptids. He’s got a grenade launcher full of salted holy water, and he’s not afraid to use it!

We’ve also got Deadly Curiosities stories in two new anthologies—Release the Virgins, published by Fantastic Books, and Tales from the Old Black Ambulance, from Prospective Press.

Hawthorn Moon Tour 2017–Monsters, Airships and Smugglers

It’s become the season to unveil new cover art, talk about new books and upcoming new releases, and explore ideas in guest blog posts on blogs around the world!

The big news….

Scourge, the first book in my new Darkhurst epic fantasy series, comes out from Solaris Books July 15!

Here’s the book cover answer: In a city beset by monsters, three brothers must find out who is controlling the abominations and stop the carnage. Corran, Rigan, and Kell Valmonde are Guild Undertakers, left to run their family
