Lambert Hill Releases INTERNET OF THINGSLambert Hill Releases INTERNET OF THINGS
by BWW News Desk - Aug 25, 2015

Data theft is on the rise, yet millions continue to trade their privacy for the convenience mobile technology provides. Self-driving cars loom on the horizon. How long before mobile devices are hardwired to our brains? A new book for young adults addresses the true price Millennials might pay for too much tech. About the Book Are you a 'Jimmiehead,' or are you still using one of those old-fashioned smartphones? Jimmies are tiny microchips, that when painlessly implanted into your brain, magically transform your eyes and ears into the ultimate hands-free device. Every teen wants one-except 16-year-old Amy, who detests technology in any form. But when thousands of Jimmieheads mysteriously vanish, only she can save them. Immune to Jimmie's influence, Amy's search for the missing teens reveals an ominous connection between the bizarre disappearances and the Fun Zone-a spooky amusement park that's been dark for 50 years! About the Series The Age of Amy books follow an inquisitive adolescent girl on her quest to understand the times she was born into. Each book sends 16-year-old Amy on fantastic adventures, where she encounters the powerful people and institutions that shape our lives. Along the way she observes the dark side of human nature, wherein lies the root cause of all the world's problems. About the Author Bruce Edwards writes young-adult Fiction on subjects most YA authors shy away from.

M.L. Sanford Releases New Suspense Thriller, AUGUSTE AND THE CONDITIONM.L. Sanford Releases New Suspense Thriller, AUGUSTE AND THE CONDITION
by BWW News Desk - Aug 24, 2015

M.L. Sanford's debut Fiction novel, 'Auguste and The Condition,' is available on major online sites including Amazon and Goodreads, as well as the author's website. Reviewer Charla White, of WordsAPlenty book reviews, described it as 'action-packed... keeping the reader hooked throughout' and 'highly recommends this book with 5 stars.' Sanford stated, 'Readers will fall in love with the main characters, Auguste Kensley, Raj and Jasmine Safaya, and discover a special connection to their inner personal struggles over career and work. But nobody's career change was ever like this. Auguste journeys from the harsh New York City streets to the exotic settings of Kashmir, India, giving the reader an intense sensual adventure, dripping in rich detail.' The book introduces Auguste Kensley, an only child, fatherless and poor. Auguste struggles to survive the rough neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York City in the 1960's and 70's. He and his boyhood friend Raj survive and eventually thriving despite the odds against them. Auguste takes what few opportunities come his way, only to reach a dead end in his newly gained career as a freelance writer for tabloids. Faced with a career ending choice and unable to see a solution, he and Raj travel abroad together, but for entirely different reasons. Auguste hopes the new setting and a break from the fast paced cut throat life as a freelance writer will give him a new perspective, opening his mind to other possibilities. Instead he tumbles into a hurricane of new emotions on the other side of the world, finding new love, and loss, despair and desperation. He survives a kidnapping and captivity only to find his freedom is not without consequences; life and death ones. He must complete The Condition, the task required by his captors in order to obtain his release. But the task may result in someone's death. 'Auguste and The Condition,' explores the deep psychological terror of captivity itself, illustrated in an emotionally charged climax, and the cruel and subtle manipulations a victim can suffer in freedoms aftermath. M.L. Sanford is a freelance writer and author, living in Decatur, Georgia for the past thirty years. At the culmination of a thirty-four year career as an Architect, Mark wanted a change. Since then, Mark has put his heart and soul into a writing career, creating stories that enlighten, delight and even fright. All of his novels contain some level of mystery or suspense, sometimes dark, and sometimes set at places around the world. His writing style has hints of, and similarities to, H.P. Lovecraft and Edgar Allen Poe. The author states; 'I suppose my architectural background has something to do with that. My sense of scene details and spatial awareness, a skill needed in architecture, seems to come out in my writing. I hope it adds another layer to the reader's experience and enjoyment of my stories.'

Milwaukee's TheateRED begins their 2015-2016 season titled 'We All Have Blood On Our Hands,' with a World Premiere written by one of the city's acclaimed actors and directors, Angela Iannone. Iannone constructs a play, The Seed of Banquo, based on the historical facts of American theater great Edwin Booth, and yes, also the brother of the infamous John Wilkes Booth. Edwin Booth opened a theater with his namesake in 1888, and then directed, designed and starred in the plays he choose to produce. In Iannone's The Seeds of Banquo, his historical and personal stage design, prompt book and blocking were used to recreate Booth's original production, including the stage back drop, while she intermingles Booth's personal life to the point where lines in Shakespeare's Macbeth might easily be quoted by the individual Booth regarding his own relections.

YOU-TURN Named Amazon BestsellerYOU-TURN Named Amazon Bestseller
by BWW News Desk - Aug 18, 2015

'You-Turn: Changing Direction in Midlife' (June 2008) recently achieved #1 Amazon Bestseller status. Dr. Nancy Irwin, a Los Angeles-based doctor of psychology and clinical hypnotist, wrote this self-help non-Fiction book to inspire others that it is never too late to live a life you love. This collection of 'over 40 stories of people over 40' chronicles successful transitions in people's personal and/or professional lives. Originally from Atlanta, where she trained as an opera singer, Dr. Irwin moved to New York City in 1985 to pursue a career as a stand-up comedian. She worked all over the country and abroad, and moved to L.A. in 1994 when she heard that Hollywood needed more blondes. She quips: 'The road from comedy to mental health is very short, indeed.' Dr. Nancy experienced an epiphany when she began volunteering for a shelter for sexually abused children. It changed her life, and prompted her to pursue a doctorate in psychology and to specialize in the prevention and healing of child sexual abuse. You-Turn not only shares her own story, but also 43 other you-turns from a variety of people - some simple, some dramatic: a convicted crack dealer who became a real estate investor, a mother of nine who started a foundation for the leprosy-affected, a monk who became a motivational speaker, a recovering pedophile, a man who became a spouse and parent after 40, a woman who finally embraced her sexual identity after years of denial and abuse, and more. The stories are divided into two parts: change by default (injury, break-up, lay-off, etc.) and change by choice (boredom, lack of fulfillment, etc). Like a Chicken Soup for the Soul for Baby Boomers, this book is for the fearful and frozen...anyone who feels stuck in struggle yet really wants to move forward. Dr. Irwin states: 'I've included some professional tips on navigating change at any age, but the emphasis of the book is on the stories told in first person. Everyone can identify with one or more of the stories in this book. I did not want to write an academic 'do-this-in-order-to-feel-that' book, because what has helped me reinvent myself so many times was seeing real-life people do amazing things. I figured if they could do it, why couldn't I? It is my hope that we all begin seeing you-turns everywhere, so they become the rule rather than the exception. Twenty- and thirty-somethings especially can benefit from these stories so they will feel free to explore, question choices, and change directions, to avert what used to be called a 'middle age crisis.' We now call it a middle age blaze!' Available on Amazon.com. (more...)
