A Top Five Pick in the Independent Fiction Awards

Jonathan Winn's debut novel Martuk ... the Holy, a tale of demons, darkness, and immortality, was named a Highlight of 2012 and one of the top five reads of the year in the Papyrus Independent Fiction Awards.

Awarding the book a rare five star review, Caleb Blake, from Papyrus Independent Author Reviews, called the work "... a very dark and fantastical tale where angels and demons blend together; where violence and sexuality are entwined and madness and clarity are confused."

Self-published in 2012, Martuk ... the Holy, the story of an immortal man haunted by demons, has garnered rave reviews and strong word of mouth. From "... a novel that is both classically written, with all attention to the details of the craft, and a story that leaves the reader in awe of its scope" (Karen Doering, Parents Little Black Book) to "holy mother of sweet Jesus ... the book grabs you from the first sentence and doesn't let go ... my heartbeat is still not entirely back to its normal pace" (Megan Broutian, meganblogs), Martuk ... has been a hit with readers and reviewers alike.

Juggling his fiction writing with his growing career as a screenwriter and playwright, Mr. Winn is also the author of the upcoming sequel to Martuk, Martuk ... the Holy: Proseuche (late-2013/early-2014). In addition, he also writes The Martuk Series, an ongoing collection of Short Fiction (The Wounded King, The Elder) based on characters introduced in Martuk ... and currently being adapted into graphic novels.
