Dropping THE BANE WITCH cover cuz it's HOT

It's here! THE BANE WITCH cover is being revealed TODAY, and I'm so excited to share this dark beauty with you. We worked incredibly hard on this one, trying to strike just the right note between beautiful and scary, witchy read and thriller. In the end, we got there, but how a cover progresses during the development process is definitely a journey. I love the colors of this one, the (poisonous) botanicals, the spooky cabin, all those mushrooms, the noxious chimney smog, and that cheeky little blood drip. What's your favorite element?

Many thanks to Olya Kirilyuk for creating it! Olya, incidentally, was also the cover artist for The Witches of Bone Hill.

PRACTICAL MAGIC meets GONE GIRL in Ava Morgyn's next dark, spellbinding novel about a woman who is more than a witch—she's a hunter.

Piers Corbin has always had an affinity for poisonous things - plants and men. From the pokeweed berries she consumed at age five that led to the accidental death of a stranger, to the husband whose dark proclivities have become… concerning, poison has been at the heart of her story.

But when she fakes her own death in an attempt to escape her volatile marriage and goes to stay with her estranged great aunt in the mountains, she realizes her predilection is more than a hunger - it’s a birthright. Piers comes from a long line of poison eaters - Bane Witches – women who ingest deadly plants and use their magic to rid the world of evil men.

Piers sets out to earn her place in her family’s gritty but distinguished legacy, all while working at her Aunt Myrtle’s cafe and perpetuating a flirtation with the local, well-meaning sheriff to allay his suspicions on the body count she’s been leaving in her wake. But soon she catches the attention of someone else, a serial killer operating in the area. And that only means one thing - it’s time to feed.

In Ava Morgyn’s dark, thrilling novel, The Bane Witch, a very little poison can do a world of good.

"A compelling dive into the darker side of human nature, of good and evil, and the gray areas in between. Thrilling!" –Mindy McGinnis, Edgar Award-winning author of The Female of the Species
