Marilyn Grace Releases FINDING BUTCH CASSIDY AND THE SUNDANCE KIDby BWW News Desk - Dec 17, 2014
Writer and researcher Marilyn Grace of St George, Utah has dug up fascinating evidence that may prove to the rest of the world that Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid did not die in Bolivia as is widely promoted in history books, but actually lived to be a ripe old age in Utah.
According to Grace's book, 'Finding Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid,' a team of researchers compared the exhumed body of Utah resident William Henry Long to the Sundance Kids body and the two were a perfect match in every way.
Dr. John McCullough, a certified forensic anthropologist, told Salt Lake City's KSL television news that, 'Two gringos definitely died, but we just don't know which ones,' he said, referring to the legend that Cassidy and his sidekick die in Bolivia.
Grace's book argues that Long, who had made his way to Utah, married a widow with six children in 1894 and kept his identity hidden, leading a double life throughout the famed Butch and Sundance years of the wild west. Grace is quoted as saying, 'It's a great cover, to be married with six children instead of an outlaw on the loose.'
In the book Grace publishes images of both Sundance and Long that, at first glance, may or may not look that much alike, but as transparencies are laid upon each other, the image of the outlaw is portrayed perfectly.
Grace also points out other similarities by adding, 'Both have broken noses. Both have a notch in the ear. Both have a notch in the chin.
The researcher has toiled over this project for seventeen years and has put together what is sure to become a great read for Butch and Sundance buffs.
The Butch and Sundance project is now represented by Creative Partners and Randy Jernigan for publicity. (more...)

Book 3 of The Memory Wars Trilogy is Releasedby BWW News Desk - Sep 2, 2014

'This is a must-read for anyone who calls themselves a magical fantasy fan.'
- Whitney Boyd, author of Tanned, Toned and Totally Faking It
'With well-drawn characters, compelling writing, and a protagonist facing both internal and external demons, Paul Anthony Shortt takes readers on a fast-paced ride through a dark, paranormal underworld.'
- Elisabeth Craig, author of the Southern Quilting mysteries
'Nathan is an engaging and sympathetic character with a compelling story. His truly is a hero's journey.'

A hero will fall.
A legend will rise.
Hope will be reborn.
The Memory Wars trilogy follows Nathan Shepherd, a man who can remember past lives, as he uncovers the truth of his previous incarnations: The warrior he once was, and the hero he was born to be. Facing secret societies, immortal killers, and his own dark side, he has fought to rally the people of New York against the forces of darkness.
Memory War, the third book in Bray author Paul Anthony Shortt's urban fantasy trilogy, is the culmination of an epic adventure for his reincarnated hero.
About Memory War:
New York is once again under the protection of a Conclave. Though still in its infancy, the group thrives under Nathan Shepherd's leadership. But their success is fragile.
Athamar and Morrigan return to exact their revenge, plunging the city into war. Uniting the forces of darkness under their banner, they seek a weapon lost to Nathan's memories, something so powerful even the gods themselves fear it.
Nathan and Elena must set aside their differences and stand together, braving the pain of long-buried lifetimes to find the key to their salvation. Somewhere, locked within their former incarnations, lies the answer. The one hope they have left, if they have the strength to walk into their final battle.
While he may not have to fight monsters and defeat evil, Paul knows how to face some daunting day to day struggles, as he works full-time alongside parenting three daughters under the age of two!
'It can be difficult to find time to write,' Paul says. 'I often get up extra early at weekends so I can work, and I write through my lunch break in my day-job. It's a big demand, but being an author has been my lifelong ambition, and my wife is very supportive. Since the recession hit, a real entrepreneurial spirit has taken hold in Ireland, and more people are using their free time to pursue their dreams. I may be run off my feet, but I wouldn't trade it for anything.'
Published by WiDo Publishing, a small independent house based in Utah, Paul has had an unconventional route to the bookshelves.
'Writers are bombarded with advice on how to succeed,' Paul adds. 'But there are as many paths to success as there are writers. My advice would be to never let yourself be intimidated - you only have one life, and a good book will always find its audience.'
The first two installments of the series, Locked Within and Silent Oath, are available now through Amazon and select bookstores. Memory War will be released on September 2nd.
About the author:
A child at heart who turned to writing and role playing games when there simply weren't enough action figures to play out the stories he wanted, Paul Anthony Shortt has been writing all his life.
Growing up surrounded by music, film and theater gave him a deep love of all forms of storytelling, each teaching him something new he could use. When not playing with the people in his head, he enjoys cooking and regular meet-ups with his gaming group. He is actively involved with the Irish science fiction and fantasy community, and has spoken on panels at Octocon, Ireland's premiere sci-fi and fantasy convention, and will be taking part in Shamrokon, the Irish Eurocon, in August.
He lives in Ireland with his wife Jen and their dogs, Pepper and Jasper. Their first child, Conor William Henry Shortt, was born on July 11th, 2011. He passed away three days later, but brought love and joy into their lives and those of their friends.
The following year, Jen gave birth to twins, Amy and Erica. Their fourth child, Olivia, was born in January, 2014.
