Saturn's Moon Press Acquires New Novel by Alayne Smith
by BWW News Desk - May 25, 2016

Alayne Smith's novel, Ellen and the Three Predictions, has been acquired by Cactus Moon Publications. The historic Fiction YA details the life of eighteen-year-old Ellen Jones and the predictions of Old Luella, a seer in the small town of Marshall, Alabama. Old Luella predicts Ellen will defend the beauty, foil a dictator, and find the soldier. When Ellen reads the predictions after her mother's unexpected death, this all seems quite far-fetched. Through the political and social changes of the early 1960s, Ellen, a budding journalist, comes to terms with her role in the world, as she encounters each of Old Luella's predictions. These encounters take her through the social taboos of Callendar Plantation, Alabama, to the promise of love and a career in Miami, and finally, to a daring rescue in Castro's Cuba. The novel also contains a special insert, 'Ellen's Notebook.' The notebook reflects Ellen's journalism education at the George W. Newman College of Journalism at the University of Columbus in Miami. A former advisor to CNN, Alayne Smith grew up in Alabama, lived in Denver and Tripoli, Libya, and settled in Atlanta, Georgia in 1969. She received masters and education specialist degrees in Instructional Technology at the University of Georgia. She served as a media specialist in Gwinnett County, Georgia for eleven years. In 1989, she moved to the high school level, initiating a high school program of broadcast journalism and video production where advanced students produced a monthly video magazine. With great honor, two of her top students were awarded an Emmy in 1999. For more about Ellen and the Three Predictions, visit the author's web site at www.alaynesmith.com. Alayne Smith is represented by Johnnie Bernhard, Literary Agent with Loiacono Literary Agency, www.LoiaconoLiteraryAgency.com . (more...)

Laurel S. Peterson Releases SHADOW NOTES
by BWW News Desk - May 24, 2016

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, announced the paperback and eBook release of the riveting thriller 'Shadow Notes: A Clara Montague Mystery' by Connecticut author Laurel S. Peterson. 'Shadow Notes' is the first book in the 'Clara Montage Mysteries' series; a second book is planned. Peterson's other works include the poetry chapbooks 'That's the Way Music Sounds' and 'Talking to the Mirror.' Clara Montague didn't want to go home to Connecticut for Christmas. Her mother Constance never seemed to like her-or her intuitive dreams about the people she loved. Clara tried to warn her mother that her father was about to have a heart attack, but Constance wouldn't listen-and her father died. Now living in Europe, Clara dreams her mother is in terrible danger, and can't ignore it. Shortly after she returns, her mother's therapist (and former lover) Hugh Woodward is murdered-and Constance is jailed for the crime. Since Constance won't talk to her about the case, Clara decides to investigate by cozying up to her mother's former best friend, wealthy socialite Mary Ellen Winters. Mary Ellen insinuates that Constance has many sordid secrets to hide-and Hugh is just the tip of the iceberg. Frantically seeking clues to her mother's hidden past, Clara uncovers the file of 'shadow notes' that Hugh maintained to document his sessions with her mother, but they are snatched from her hands before she can read them. As Clara gets closer to the truth about Hugh's murder and its connection to her mother's past, threats against her own life escalate. Can Clara's intuition help her peel back years of high-stakes secrets to identify the real murderer? Ask for 'Shadow Notes' at your favorite bookstore, or buy it online at the Barking Rain Press website, Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Powells, Waterstones, and many other Internet bookstores.

BWW Interview: Writer Jessica Tamara
by Mark C. Lloyd - May 24, 2016

Jessica Tamara is a rising author whose debut novel Running Away From Love was self-published and released on July 18, 2015. She has had a passion for writing and also reading since she was a little girl. She has been featured as a rising urban Fiction author at the Toronto Urban Fiction Book Expo. Her goal is to create female characters from all walks of life that evolve, but most importantly they inspire and live in their truths whether it is good or bad. She would describe her writing style as emotional and vivid, where she wants you feel and escape into the moment she has created. You laugh with the characters, get angry with them, cry with them, and root for them to overcome. If the reader can relate and connect on any level, then that makes the writing process that much more worthwhile. Jessica currently resides in Buffalo, NY where works in finance and writes in her spare time. She is currently working on creating her own publishing company, which she hopes to help authors like herself to share their work with the world. She is currently working on her 2nd novel slated to be released in September 2016 titled 'Season's Change....Autumn Leaves'. (more...)

Robert Dunn Releases MOTORMAN
by BWW News Desk - May 23, 2016

The author, Robert Dunn, has released a new book, 'MOTORMAN,' on the independent horror publisher, Necro Publications, Bedlam Press & Weird West Books. It is a chrome plated, fuel injected horror that pulls the veil from the dark Ozarks, a world of madness, violence, mysterious visitors, and V8 powered monsters looking for love. Referred to as both imaginative and daring he takes on familiar tropes and some extremely hard subject matter, and manages to do so in a way that made it his. He has crafted a unique and original creation that is just as well executed and entertaining as any that have come before it. Robert E. Dunn grew up in the Missouri Ozarks reading everything he could get his hands on. After college, a course of study that included philosophy, religion, theater, and film/TV communications left him qualified only to be a televangelist. When that didn't work out he turned to writing horror and fantasy Fiction. He lives in Kansas City with three daughters, a young grandson, and an old dog. He tweets sometimes as @WritingDead but makes no promises how interesting those little posts will be. 'MOTORMAN' by Robert Dunn is now available in Hardcover, Trade Paperback, and eBook.

DELIVER HER by Patricia Perry Donovan is Released
by BWW News Desk - May 20, 2016

To what lengths should a parent go to rescue a child? DELIVER HER, a debut novel by journalist Patricia Perry Donovan, is a searing exploration of a daughter's grief, a mother's desperation, and an endless highway of deception. In DELIVER HER, Meg Carmody is heartbroken for her teenage daughter Alex and desperate to get the teen's life back on track. At her wit's end, the mother makes a fateful call to a transporter who specializes in shuttling troubled teens to therapeutic programs, unbeknownst to her estranged husband. But when the transport of the tormented teen goes awry-and Alex goes missing-Meg must face the consequences of her decision and her deception. The hunt for Alex reveals that Meg is not the only one keeping secrets. The Fictional Carmodys of DELIVER HER are among thousands of distraught families across the United States who engage a youth transport service to deliver an at-risk child to a designated treatment facility, boarding school or wellness program.

Playwright Domnica Radulescu Set for EXILE IS MY HOME Talkback at Theater For The New City, 5/21
by BWW News Desk - May 20, 2016

?Theater For The New City is pleased to announce a special talkback with internationally renowned author Domnica Radulescu and director Andreas Robertz, following the Saturday, May 21, 8:00 pm  performance of Exile Is My Home.  Told as a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fairy tale,  Exile Is My Home is the haunting story of Mina and Lina, a refugee couple from the Balkans traveling through the galaxy in search of a planet to call home.  The play combines absurdist comedy, irony and suspense to raise consciousness about the current international refugee crisis and the complexity of issues related to it.  The story emerged partly from Radulescu's own experience as a political refugee from the former communist dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu and other accounts of displacement.  As millions of people are uprooted from their homes and swept across tumultuous seas and often unwelcome lands, Exile Is My Home highlights the importance of immigrant theater in bringing awareness about many of the challenges facing our world today.   (more...)

by Jeffrey Walker - May 20, 2016

Taking a trip to the Atlas Performing Arts Center on H Street will also transport you to a time when radio was king and one of the princes of the medium was the maverick actor-director Orson Welles.

Adam Witt Pens DEATH ISN'T FUNNY
by BWW News Desk - May 19, 2016

Death isn't funny. Right? Queers. Depressed people. Weird sex. Absurdism. Two stoners who might discover time travel. Drugs everywhere, for that matter. Dissolving relationships and relationships in bloom. Love. Hate. Death. Death isn't funny. Right? Adam Witt, a new voice in American queer Fiction, has released his collection 'Death Isn't Funny' for download for the Kindle and in PDF format. His debut displays topics ranging from Midwestern misery to the absurdity of American politics, with stops at sentient lungs and penetrating portraits of relationships gone south. A true contribution to modern American queer Fiction, Death Isn't Funny might not change the whole landscape - but it will change the reader. As LGBTQ literature blossoms, new voices continuously emerge - and Witt's is well worth a listen. Witt has edited and published collections of short Fiction and nonFiction writing and art, a skill set he brings to bear on his first book. The work is a sometimes-melancholy love letter to the world he inhabits - one of Midwestern decay, the absurdity of human relationships, and in the end the overwhelming hope for something beautiful found in the rubble. Readers have already expressed their interest in Witt's vision by purchasing many copies of his book on the first day of release alone. 'I've felt so lucky to see so much interest in this,' Witt says. 'It's my love letter to literary Fiction and short Fiction, but, more importantly, to being queer, and to the LGBTQ world. It's also a little dive into my own psychological landscape, which is as dark and absurd as the book.' Adam D. Witt. adamDwitt@gmail.com. www.twitter.com/adamwitt. 708 439 9611. (more...)
