BWW Preview: Take a Bite of DRACULA FOR DUMMYS at the Provincetown Theater
by Kristen Morale - Oct 8, 2016

Vampires have become such an essential part of American culture, even if they are only Fictional beings; from one of the first allusion to them in Polidori's The Vampyre to more modern takes on this age-old creature, it is amazing how vampires have become the talk of the town - the town being in movies, the written word and now, in this premiere on Cape Cod. DiVincenzo understands their importance, making reference to the Lugosi's famous film legacy. 'I feel like it's a timeless story. Dracula is an icon. I think it's an indelible mark that 1931 film made in our culture. What we're giving [audiences] now is a much younger approach to the Dracula story.' (more...)

by Marianka Swain - Oct 5, 2016

Christian Author Releases LEFT CROSS RIGHT CROSS
by BWW News Desk - Oct 11, 2016

Monroe, Michigan Author's Novel Released Author G. Chip Greene's newly released 'Left Cross Right Cross' is an amazing work of Fiction detailing the story of Jesus' youth, culminating at the foot of the cross. 'Left Cross Right Cross' from Christian Faith Publishing author G. Chip Greene is a beautifully written and descriptive tale of Jesus' childhood and his best friends who go separate ways, only to meet again on a hill called Calvary. 'Left Cross Right Cross': an engaging and inventive work of Fiction that relays a story of friendship, separation, and ultimately divine providence at work on a day of untold sadness, compromise, and determination. 'Left Cross Right Cross' is the creation of published author, G. Chip Greene, retired high school teacher and devoted father, husband, and grandfather. A lifelong and tireless reader, this is Chip's first novel. However, he shares that, 'I am currently working on two other writing projects. One being a spin-off of a character from Left Cross, Right Cross, and (the other) an interesting work on Scripture from the viewpoint of the archangels.' Published by Christian Faith Publishing, G. Chip Greene's new book explores the early, teen, and adult life of Jesus Christ as he grows up with childhood friends, Cris and Daani. The author seamlessly weaves these lives and families inexplicably together for eternity. The three boys form an inseparable bond and kinship born of the ages. Ultimately, they separate as teens as the plan of heaven begins to unfold. While Jesus retreats to the wilderness and defines his Godly heritage and ultimate mission, his friends stray from their traditions and teachings and find heartache, trouble, and strife in the dark Philistine city of Ashod. The providence of YHWH reunites the trio at the foot of Calvary's cross for an unforgettable day of human anguish and decision. Consumers can purchase 'Left Cross Right Cross' at traditional brick & mortar bookstores, or online at, Apple iTunes store, Kobo or Barnes and Noble. For additional information or inquiries about 'Left Cross Right Cross,' contact the Christian Faith Publishing media department. (more...)
