This ain't your mother's book release party! Jon Morgan Woodward, Author/Actor/Writer/Producer, and Director John Carl Beuchler have created a mind-blowing party to go along with the release of the book, 'Hidden Valley: The Awakening,' the first of five adapted thriller screenplays from The Hidden Valley Saga Series, published by The Red Carpet Connection Publishing, Publicity, and Talent Agency.

'Hidden Valley: The Awakening' was voted the most anticipated movie to be released in 2014 on IMDb. The release party, hosted by Actor/Comedian Brett Hunt, will feature the band, ROCKERO5, and songs performed by Hovhannes Babakhanyan, Donovan Dustin and Matthew Parry-Jones. Throughout the red carpet event, passed hors d'oeuvres will be offered, along with complimentary wine, and a cash bar with inexpensive drinks for purchase. All ages are welcome.
In Woodward's novel, when three high school kids are attacked by a vicious werewolf, a chilling story unfolds about love, life and what lengths a small community goes through to try and win a high school championship. As the sun sets and the full moon rises, all hell breaks loose. Everyone has to fight to save their lives during a night of murder and uncontrollable slaughter in Hidden Valley.
The full moon arrives at 5:45pm PST August 20, 2013. Make sure you make it to the Red Carpet by 7:00 p.m., where your thirst for werewolves will be quenched when you get your personally autographed book by actors and producers associated with the movie to be released in 2014, Hidden Valley: The Awakening. Described as 'addictive as crack cocaine,' 200 limited edition copies of the book will be available in paperback at the release party.
The weekend prior to July 2013's full moon revealed a limited pre-release edition of Hidden Valley: The Awakening. Coinciding with the annual Comic Con International Convention in San Diego, CA., copies of the pre-release limited edition were distributed to a select group of fans, contributors, reviewers, and investors who love horror, thriller, and mystery featuring love, lust, blood, and werewolves. The book is receiving rave reviews.
"One of the most entertaining books that I have read in this genre. It is a coming of age story filled with laughter and tears, violent and brutal murders, unbridled sex, and of course, werewolves," commented John Carl Beuchler, Director of the planned movie. Beuchler signed on for the direction of Hidden Valley after reading just a few pages of the screenplay and the book adaption, which he described as "...so right from a cinematic stand point...viscerally and dynamically to the page as it would play on the screen."
Beuchler is most noted for his Direction on Paramount Pictures' Friday the 13 Part VII: The New Blood (1988) and his design as Director of Special Effects for Troll (1986). Buechler's work in cinematic monster-making is legendary and some of his creative monster work will be featured in a special theatrical show at the book release party August 20th.
Woodward, an accomplished director, producer, screenwriter, and actor with a PhD in Naturopathy with specialization in Forensic Profiling, and a man who singlehandedly raised 5 children, brings a wealth of knowledge, experience, talent, and intrigue into this storyline that fascinates both young and mature adults as it delves into the mystery of this small town and its secrets.
Having been on stage since he was a child, Woodward is listed on IMBd for numerous accomplishments over the last 30 years, including the psychological thriller One Hour Fantasy Girl, and others, including Chances, The Day the Music Died, and IJE the Journey. Additionally, he has other major accomplishments including his involvement with the 'Just Say No to Drugs' Campaign with the White House Conference for a Drug-Free America under the Reagan Administration.
