Announcing Ugly As Sin by James Newman

Post by Kenwood on Tue Aug 20, 2013 2:21 pm

Shock Totem Publications is very happy to announce the upcoming paperback/digital release of James Newman's brand-new novel, Ugly As Sin.



Cover art for Thunderstorm Books' sold-out limited edition hardcover

Nick Bullman was a wrestling superstar. His alter ego, The Widowmaker, was the monster heel all the marks loved to hate.

But then an encounter with two psychotic fans left his face horribly disfigured. Now, to most, he’s just a monster.

Yanked from the spotlight and thrust into the shadows, these days Nick lives the quiet life of an average Joe. He's angry. He’s alone. And he likes it just fine that way...

Until he receives a desperate phone call from a young lady he barely knows—his daughter.

For the first time in over thirty years, Nick returns to his hometown of Midnight, North Carolina. There he will come face to face with old demons, forge new friendships, and make enemies far more dangerous than those who ruined his face, all in a quest to save the granddaughter he’s never met...and maybe find a little bit of redemption along the way.

Ugly As Sin is an electrifying tale of “white-trash noir,” a taut page-turner that skates the razor edge of a familiar, horrifying reality. At times heartbreaking, funny, and terrifyingly suspenseful, Ugly As Sin may be Newman’s best work to date.

Praise for Ugly As Sin:

Ugly As Sin is James Newman’s best book yet! I loved every brutal, violent, pulpy page, and I recommend the hell out of it!” —Jeff Strand, author of Dead Clown Barbecue, Faint of Heart, and Gleefully Macabre Tales

"Ugly As Sin is brutal, fast-paced, grimy fun, a compulsive page-turner with characters you’ll be deeply invested in by story’s end." —Blu Gilliand, The October Country

"James Newman is one of my favorite authors. His novels are always engrossing and entertaining.  I can't recommend his works highly enough." —John R. Little, author of Miranda, The Memory Tree, and Ursa Major

The paperback/digital editions of Ugly As Sin will feature exclusive artwork and bonus material. Look for it this coming December.
