Class Act Books Announces November TitlesClass Act Books Announces November Titles
by BWW News Desk - Nov 17, 2016

This month Class Act Books presents the first entry in a new Science Fiction/Space Opera series and the sixth novel in a continuing series. 'The Story of a Peace-Loving Man' by Toni V. Sweeney, is the first title in the new Adventures of Sinbad series which begins this month. The initial story, asking the question 'How are Conscientious Objectors treated 300 years in the future?' deals with the story of Allan McAllister, a Paxist or Peace-Lover, and what happens when he protests the Earth's involvement in its first intergalactic war. The series, comprising eight novels, will be released monthly by Class Act Books. Covers will be designed by veteran artist, James Robinson. Ms. Sweeney is a long-standing Class Act Books author, having been first published by the company in 2010. She currently has twenty-eight novels under the Class Act Books logo, including several sequels and a trilogy. She was recently named a professional reader by Netgalley, and when not writing, reviews novels for the New York Journal of Books Online and the Paranormal Romance Guild. Last year, her novel 'NEBRASKA: Walk the Shadow Trail' placed second in the Top Ten Best General Novels of 2015 by the Annual Preditors & Editors Readers Poll. She was also voted one of the Top Ten Authors of 2015 by the same poll. She has also been recognized by the Maryland Romance Writers, and the National Writers Association. The Past Returns is Linda J. Burson's sixth venture in the best-selling Marcy series of romantic suspense novels. A former book editor, Ms. Burson is a Class Act Books debut author, having signed with the company late last year. Her novel, 'Rage,' first in the Marcy series, was voted third in the Top Ten Thrillers of 2015 by the Preditors & Editors Readers Poll for that year. Class Act Books came under new ownership in mid-2013 and is now celebrating its third year as a publisher of all fiction genres. It proudly includes many award-winning authors and prize-winning titles in its lists. (more...)

BWW Review: '27' is a Diverting Evening on the Left Bank with Gertrude and Alice B.BWW Review: '27' is a Diverting Evening on the Left Bank with Gertrude and Alice B.
by Richard Sasanow - Oct 24, 2016

In many ways, '27'--the 90-minute the chamber opera about Gertrude Stein, Alice B. Toklas and their circle, composed by Ricky Ian Gordon to a Royce Vavrek libretto--is an old-fashioned love story. It just happens to be about two women who entertained and collected (in all senses) some of the most important visual artists and writers of the first half of the century at a time when Paris was still the hub of the artistic world and 27 rue de Fleurus, the women's home, was its epicenter.
