Harding's Newest Historical Fiction Release Reveals Cruel Past of America's Founding
by BWW News Desk - Jun 6, 2014

David-Michael Harding weaves his admiration of Native American culture and history in his newest release, 'Losing St. Christopher' (ISBN 978-0985728526). While technically a work of fiction, Harding's novel builds on a factual base in order to educate readers about a unique period in history when one nation was born and another nearly died. In 1953 Albert Speer, Germany's Minister of Armaments & War Production during World War II, wrote from his prison cell in Berlin regarding the genocide of the American Indian. The Nazis' study of the treatment and eradication of American Indians was an element in the plan for the 'Final Solution.' Hitler, Heinrich Himmler, Adolf Eichmann, and others who administered the Nazi Holocaust had looked to the Indian Removal Act of 1830 and the subsequent actions of the United States Government as the blueprint for annihilation of a people, a culture, and A Way of Life. In 'Losing St. Christopher,' Totsuhwa, the revered shaman of the Cherokee Nation, struggles against the assimilation of his people into the white world of men he sees as invaders. The colonists, along with Cherokee who are trying to bridge both worlds, see him as a barbarous threat. When Totsuhwa's visions show him the outcome, it is as black as his deep set haunting eyes. Chancellor, his son, takes a white wife following study at a missionary school and the shaman's fears seem realized. Conflicts between cultures and within the family erupt when Totsuhwa's only grandchild is forced onto the Trail of Tears. In the chase that follows, an estranged love fights to stem the ugly flow of racism that is moving in two directions. With its historical basis and fictional storyline, 'Losing St. Christopher' will educate readers while entertaining them with a story of culture, inner conflict and the evolution of a nation. Harding hopes his novel will create an impact on readers and shed light on a lost, forgotten, and dark page of our history. Losing St. Christopher is available for sale online at Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, and everywhere fine books are sold. The novel is the sequel to the critically acclaimed, Cherokee Talisman. 'Cherokee Talisman brings to life characters from our history and through a flare for fiction and historical research, Harding tells their story. Cherokees that might be painted by racist misconceptions as blood thirsty savages are humanized by Harding, making them heroes of a very real time. History is written by the victorious, but when almost forgotten historical characters are brought to life they are preserved for the ages, and in this preservation David-Michael Harding has succeeded.' - Cherokee Nation Principal Chief Bill John Baker. About the Author: David-Michael Harding is a life-long writer whose novel, How Angels Die, has received critical acclaim. A former semi-professional football player, his writing is hard hitting and passionate. He holds a master's degree in education and is an adjunct professor of writing. His respect and admiration for Native American culture inspired this novel. Most of his days are spent writing from the cockpit of his sailboat, Pegasus, somewhere off the Nature Coast of Florida in the Gulf of Mexico.

Dr. Kalyan's PIRATES OF BOLLYWOOD, a Thrilling Legal Adventure in Bombay, Available for Pre-Order
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2014

Dr. Kalyan's second law thriller novel in his Intellectual Property Fiction series has just been released for pre-order on Apple IBooks and Kobo. A legal adventure set in Bombay, the novel takes the reader through a gripping tale of film production, piracy and pillage. Unwittingly drawn into a violent war between producers and pirates, Arjun, a young, blind lawyer, goes on a wild goose chase in the city of dreams. Film producers, record labels, and software companies have been grappling with copyright piracy for a very long time. Several research studies have concluded that losses from piracy to various creative industries are in billions of dollars. A recent study of he Indian Chamber of Commerce estimates losses from piracy in India to be more than a billion dollars. Many scholars have also established strong linkages between piracy, terrorism and organized crime. In this backdrop, Dr. Kalyan's "Pirates of Bollywood," fictionalizes and dramaticizes the ongoing war between producers, pirates and police. Arjun, the protagonist from Dr. Kalyan's first work, "Road Humps and Sidewalks," a drug patent thriller, gets drawn into a fierce war between producers and pirates, spurring him to unravel the pirate puzzle. The novel is the first of its kind in the legal fiction genre. Talking about his second novel, Dr. Kalyan said, "Piracy is A Way of Life in India. Against the odds of stringent laws, and enforcement systems, the piracy business manages to survive and prosper. I have always wondered if there is much more in piracy than meets the eye. 'Pirates of Bollywood' gives wings to some of my wild conspiracy theories about the linkages between piracy, film production and crime." Dr. Kalyan Kankanala is a leading Intellectual Property attorney in India, and manages the largest new age Intellectual Property (IP) Firm, BananaIP Counsels. He also consults for United Nations Industrial Development Organisation (UNIDO), and teaches at premier institutions such as National Law School and Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore. Dr. Kalyan's law thrillers are aimed at taking IP knowledge to the public, and encouraging debates on socially relevant IP themes.

Glagoslav Releases 'Don't Call Me a Victim!'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 14, 2014

'Don't Call Me a Victim!' revolves around the life of Archana Guha, whose unique destiny has been the subject of continuous media attention for nearly twenty years in India, Europe, USA and Japan. Arrested on trumped-up political charges and tortured by the police, Archana survived the ordeal, but left paralysed in both legs. Archana's brother initiated a public campaign against the torturers, which the family was sucked into for more than 20 years. His pursuit of revenge became A Way of Life which took Archana hostage for a second time. 'Don't Call Me a Victim!' is a heartfelt documentary account of Archana's life. This is a political drama about torture as a means of combating terrorism, and about terrorism as a reaction to state terror. It is a human drama about survival, about how to hold on to your humanity when everything has been taken from you. Born in Uzbekistan, Dina Yafasova worked as an accredited correspondent in Central Asia for the Danish and other international media. For results of her investigative journalistic work that had become known worldwide, Dina was harassed by the Uzbek security services. A series of severe interrogations, repressions and attacks forced her to leave her homeland. Since 2001 Dina lives in Denmark. After years of faithful service at a Danish organization International Media Support, Dina made her debut as a writer in 2006 and never stopped writing since.
