BWW Review: FANGIRL by Rainbow Rowell
by Bonnie Lynn Wagner - Mar 28, 2017

FANGIRL took me longer to get into than ELEANOR & PARK, which I reviewed here at BWW last week. It has a slower start before it gets moving and makes readers become attached to the characters. It's also a longer book, so it took me longer than the day it did to read ELEANOR & PARK. But in some ways, I can relate more to FANGIRL because I've experienced several of the same things that Cath goes through. In ELEANOR & PARK, it's easy to slip into Eleanor's shoes and feel her embarrassment and live her life. With FANGIRL, the audience is more secular. I've heard a lot of people complain that FANGIRL seems improbable, that freshmen at college aren't like this, that the scenario is off. ...And yet, Cath is a lot like I was my first year of college. Don't brush off Cath's experience just because it wasn't yours, because it was someone else's. (more...)

TREMORS: Gary Beck's New Poetry Book Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2017

Poet Gary Beck once again captivates with his newest collection, Tremors. As a driving force for creative expression, outrage has dissipated and turned into complacency and disconnection. But this complicated life continues to present many disruptions that grow or diminish, but are often disturbing. And as we encounter these bumps in the road, they are often seen from a place of fear and confusion, leading us to ponder whether civilization is declining or if it is merely our own aging bodies and minds.

YA Novel, 'The Girl Who Flew Away' by Val Muller is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2017

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit Fiction publisher, today announced the paperback and eBook release of 'The Girl Who Flew Away,' a YA novel by author Val Muller of Northern Virginia. Muller's other works include 'The Scarred Letter,' a YA reboot of Nathaniel Hawthorne's classic American novel 'The Scarlett Letter,' as well as 'Faulkner's Apprentice,' 'The Man With the Crystal Ankh,' and the 'Corgi Capers' series. No good deed goes unpunished when freshman Steffie Brenner offers to give the awkward new neighbor girl a ride home after her first day at school. When her older sister Ali stops at a local park to apply for a job, Steffie and Madison slip out of the car for a walk-and Madison vanishes. Already in trouble for a speeding ticket, Ali insists that Steffie say nothing about Madison's disappearance. Even when Madison's mother comes looking for her. Even when the police question them. Some secrets are hard to hide, though-especially with Madison's life on the line. As she struggles between coming clean or going along with her manipulative sister's plan, Steffie begins to question whether she or anyone else is really who she thought they were. After all, the Steffie she used to know would never lie about being the last person to see Madison alive-nor would she abandon someone in the woods: alone, cold, injured, or even worse. But when Steffie learns an even deeper secret about her own past, a missing person seems like the least of her worries.

'Mist and Mirrors' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2017

In Kalishandra, the city of lost travelers, darkness has formed. In the mist that rises from cracks between the cobblestones, it has life. The strange mist drifts along empty streets, welling into deep, choking pools in forgotten courtyards. It breaks in ephemeral waves upon the stark stone walls of towers, which protrude above its curling tendrils like strangely envisioned nightmares. These bleak, inhospitable eyries are the lairs of dark and terrible wizards, beneath whose hard and stony glare Kalishandra shifts. (more...)

Kyle Keyes Releases Book Two in the Quantum Roots Satire Series
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

The metamorphous holds an eerie transformation, cloaked with rolling sagebrush and horse whinnies from yesteryear, which causes DPA Director, Alexis Grumman to rethink the validity of worm holes. 'Creation is a worm hole,' replies Dr. Norman Daly, 'Atoms require hadrons to form a nucleus, and each hadron comes through it's own worm hole. Two quarks form the bi-dimensional plane needed to support the hole. The remaining quark squeezes through this hole, after which the first two quarks follow to shape the hadron to a given genetic, configuration. The hole then closes to divide time from timeless.' The gunfighter is wanted for multiple killings, a consequence that keeps the slender computer wizard on the run from authorities - and domineering wife, Ivy Chapman. As in Quantum Roots, aka The Vigilante Sightings, Quantum Roots II is based on mounting evidence that people form from recycled energy. Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes is available for purchase in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: Quantum Roots II: Worm Holes By Kyle Keyes Published: February 2017 ISBN: 978-0986437496 Pages: 296 Genre: Fiction, Satire About the Author: Born To Write: Older Americans often come from whistle stop towns painted by Norman Rockwell. Kyle Keyes grew up in Clayton, a South Jersey borough first founded as Fislerville. Clayton had a small urban district with street lights, but no indoor plumbing. Farmland and outhouses were a sign of the times. Clayton was so small, that Keye's aunt doubled as his Sixth Grade school teacher, who once said that Kyle lived with his nose between the bookends. She must have known something. Keyes went to Temple Tech for concrete and steel design in 1956 and 1957. He never became an engineer, but still has a red, tinker toy motor and his World War II, Erector Set. The early Sixties found Kyle in the U.S. Army where his top sergeant would daily bark, 'You just say morning, trooper. I'll decide if it's good or not!' Keyes wholesaled bakery products to food chains for thirty years, and wrote odd items for local newspapers. He is widowed and currently lives in Florida. He has two children, Kathleen and Daniel. Grand children are now grown and too old for tales about railroads and yesterday's America. This leaves Keyes no option but to write books.

'Echoes of Tattered Tongues' Named Finalist in Benjamin Franklin Awards
by BWW News Desk - Mar 24, 2017

Echoes of Tattered Tongues: Memory Unfolded (Aquila Polonica Publishing, March 2016) has just been named as a finalist for the 2017 Benjamin Franklin Award in the category of Poetry/Literary Criticism. The winner will be announced in a ceremony held in Portland, Oregon, the evening of April 7, 2017. Now in its 29th year, the Benjamin Franklin Award, sponsored by the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA), is the premier awards competition in independent publishing, recognizing excellence in independent publishing. There were nearly 1,400 entries this year. In this major tour de force, author John Z. Guzlowski traces the arc of one of the millions of immigrant families of America, in this case, survivors of the maelstrom of World War II. Publishers Weekly describes it as 'gut-wrenching, narrative lyric poems,' and Foreword Reviews called the book a 'devastating, one-of-a-kind collection.' 'A searing memoir,' said Shelf Awareness, naming the Echoes of Tattered Tongues book trailer its Book Trailer of the Day. Kelly Cherry, Poet Laureate of Virginia (2010-2012) said about this book: 'Deeply moving. A powerful, lasting, and sometimes shocking book. Superb.' Using an innovative weave of poetry and prose, Guzlowski unfolds the story of his own family backwards through time. His parents, young Christian Poles, were taken by Germans to work as slave laborers in German concentration camps, and barely survived. The author and his sister were born in refugee camps in Germany after the war. The family was finally able to immigrate to the United States in 1951 as Displaced Persons, and settled in an immigrant neighborhood in Chicago. 'It was a tough neighborhood, where I grew up, and our lives were hard,' Guzlowski writes in his Preface. 'America then - like now - didn't much want to see a lot of immigrants coming over and taking American jobs, sharing apartments with two or three other immigrant families, getting into the kinds of trouble immigrants get into. We were regarded as Polacks - dirty, dumb, lazy, dishonest, immoral, licentious, drunken Polacks. I felt hobbled by being a DP, Displaced Person. It was hard karma.'

Watch the book trailer: www.polww2.com/EchoesTrailer 'We're excited to learn that Echoes of Tattered Tongues is a finalist in the 2017 Ben Franklin Awards,' said Aquila Polonica president Terry Tegnazian. 'This is a haunting look at a virtually unknown aspect of World War II, with impacts that echo through generations and reflections relevant to today's refugee situation. Guzlowski's writing, with its powerful imagery, will stay with you long after you close the book.' About John Guzlowski: Guzlowski is Professor Emeritus of English Literature at Eastern Illinois University, and currently lives in Lynchburg, Virginia. He received his B.A. in English Literature from the University of Illinois, and his M.A. and Ph.D. in English from Purdue University. Over a writing career that spans more than 40 years, Guzlowski has amassed a significant body of published work in a wide range of genres: poetry, prose, literary criticism, reviews, Fiction and nonFiction. His work has appeared in numerous national journals and anthologies, and in four prior books. Guzlowski's work has garnered high praise, including from Nobel Laureate Czes?aw Mi?osz, who called Guzlowski's poetry 'exceptional.'

While An American in Paris captures the dreamy glamour of old Hollywood, Simon McBurney rivetingly evokes its seedy, cynical underbelly, from backroom deals to drug busts and mobsters. Yet it is, in its own way, just as dazzling - a paean to Tinseltown myth-making as well as a blackly comic deconstruction. (more...)
