Author Steven Wells Hicks Announces Book Signing in Jackson, Mississippi

Destiny's Anvil Book CoverAugust 19, 2014 (Jackson, Mississippi) – Steven Wells Hicks announces his farewell book signing and reading today, as he prepares to move to New Orleans after 40 years in Jackson. The signing will begin at 5:00PM, with the reading at 5:30PM at Lemuria Books.
Hicks’ novel, Destiny’s Anvil: A Tale of Politics, Payback & Pigs, was written from an insider’s experiences in the back rooms of hardball Dixie politics where cold-blooded payback is coin of the realm. Destiny’s Anvil is at once a sharp-eyed examination of the seamy underside of America’s elections and a freewheeling yarn in the grand Southern tradition.
“Destiny’s Anvil is written for readers who look for fast-paced tales of icy revenge, but also like the combination of patrician gentility and regional quirkiness that so defines the upper classes of the American South,” says Hicks.
Hicks’ fourth novel, Destiny’s Anvil is the polar opposite of the novel’s original intent. It is dark, violent bordering on savage, as it strips away the veneers of not only politicians, but the entire American political system. At the same time, it moves with the furious pace of a thriller overflowing with cliffhangers.
Of his last book signing in Jackson, Hicks says, “After forty years here, this is my ‘farewell appearance’ before moving to New Orleans.” To learn more, go to
