Winds of Purgatory, A Novel Book Bundle: autographed edition and ebook
by Rex A. Ewing
softcover book (386 pages) PLUS the ebook edition (your choice of epub or mobi files)
published by Eastlake Books
It’s been twenty years since an engineered microbe brought the age of oil to an end, triggering a civil war that left civilization forever changed. Now, in a world divided into tightly controlled urban islands and self-reliant rural settlements, Salia Warchez, a cunning priestess of the end days, is ready to bring the new social order to its knees.
Moving like a ghost on the fringes of civilization, the outlaw Salia is one of the select few who know the secret to oil’s demise. And now she intends to bring it back for her own nefarious ends. But there’s a problem, and it’s waiting for her in the Colorado mountain town of Purgatory.
As smoldering rivalries suddenly ignite, the future of oil will be settled once and for all, in one of the most deadly and peculiar places on Earth.
We believe words are powerful and that a book in hand is empowering in ways the internet can't be. To really delve into a subject and glean some hard-won wisdom, read a good book.

How we ended up here
In 1999, after publishing a best-selling book on horse nutrition, we relocated our new publishing company several miles off the beaten path to a place of breathtaking views and endless wildlife. But no utilities. And so we began the odyssey of handcrafting a home from a pile of trees and learned how to harness the sun and wind to provide the energy. We then transformed our hard-won knowledge into a couple of popular graphic-packed renewable energy books. Soon afterwards we added more authors to our lineup and expanded our range of topics.
What we publish
PixyJack Press publishes non-fiction titles about nature...the wild and not-so-wild:
• renewable energy and sustainable living
• log home planning and building
• wildfire readiness and recovery
• fire safety at home
• bear smart advice
• simple horse nutrition
• Costa Rica nature and history
All in all, PixyJack Press is rather ‘green’ when it comes to our list of environmental titles and our reliance on renewable energy. Even Publishers Weekly took note of this unique combination in the article, "Green and Off the Grid," by Bridget Kinsella (2009).
But since the real-life adoption of renewable energy transcends petty politics, readers never know that our authors come from both ends of the political spectrum; guilt trips are left at the door.
Every good book starts with an articulate, passionate author who effectively puts together thousands of words to inspire and inform.
