BWW Review: SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR Is Paint By Numbers Disappointment
by Matt Tamanini - Aug 22, 2014

There is a rule that is generally accepted by all movie fans; while a sequel might eclipse its original in box office receipts, merchandise sales, and social media presence, it is only on rare occasions when it can match its predecessor in terms in quality. That rule is especially true when it comes to originals that are marked by an innovation or creative flare that revolutionizes, or defies, its genre.

Titular grammatical error aside, this listless sequel provides none of the awe-inspiring spectacle of its far superior original. (more...)

Adult Fantasy Author A. Wrighton Launches Campaign to Fund New Book, Promotes Indie Reads
by BWW News Desk - Aug 07, 2014

Genre-bending author A. Wrighton challenges bookworms to abandon potato salad and bring more indie books to the public. New adult fantasy author A. Wrighton, known for her genre-bending and witty take on indie authors, has launched an IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for her Dragonics & Runics book series to fund the completion of the fourth book and two fan-demanded prequels. IndieGoGo is the world's most-established crowdfunding platform and a popular crowdfunding medium for independent artists and authors looking to fund their visions while making changes in the world around them. 'I saw people jumping on board to fund a wacky concept of potato salad, and I thought, 'Lots of people love potato salad, but everyone loves a good book.' I figured that if people were willing to chip in to get delicious potato salad out there, they'd be willing to give up a few dollars here and there for a good book,' A. Wrighton said. 'The world needs more books - it needs more dragons - and what better way than through indie authors, like me?' Contributors to the Dragonics & Runics Series #NeedMoreDragons IndieGoGo campaign can earn exclusive merchandise like faction pins, T-shirts, and maps that will make their official debut at Stan Lee's Comikaze 2014. Contributors will also receive public recognition with social media blasts and written dedications in forthcoming books. For more information on the Dragonics & Runics Series #NeedMoreDragons IndieGoGo Campaign, visit: http://bit.ly/NeedMoreDragons Since the July release of Convergence: Dragonics & Runics Part III, A. Wrighton has also thrown the indie author world on its head by releasing an audiobook podcast of the third book for free saying that 'People need to know indie authors' books shouldn't be written off as a fad or badly conceived storytelling.'
