Creative Alchemy Author Offers Free Fantasy Novel
by BWW News Desk - Sep 9, 2014

Women in combat? How about women parachuting into Nazi-occupied France under the cover of night, sabotaging railroads alongside resistance fighters, and keeping the path clear for the famous D-Day landings? 'The Tower's Alchemist,' by Alesha Escobar, is a fantasy mashup of magic, mayhem, and espionage, all with an underlying homage to a group of women who made real history. 'While most of us can recall basic facts from our high school lessons on World War II, very few have heard of the women of the Special Operations Executive (SOE),' Escobar said. 'British intelligence employed these female spies during a tumultuous time, and these womenranging from an Indian princess to a flirtatious socialitedid very dangerous work.' 'The Tower's Alchemist' follows the adventure of SOE spy, Isabella George, whose skills not only include hand-to-hand combat and infiltration, but the magical discipline of alchemy. In this alternate WWII, the occult really does work in the Nazis' favor, and the Allies scramble to snatch up wizards trained by the benevolent yet aloof Gray Tower to help counter warlocks' dangerous spells and bizarre creatures cutting down Ally troops. However, Isabella is tired and jaded, especially as friends disappear and are never heard from again. She embarks on what she hopes to be her final mission, which turns out to be her deadliestsomeone within her organization has betrayed her, a vampiric warlock is stalking her in order to steal her powers, and the Gray Tower holds deadly secrets about her past. Alesha Escobar, a native of Los Angeles, CA, writes fantasy books and blogs weekly at her site, aleshaescobar.com and is the co-founder of Creative Alchemy, Inc. She recently completed the final book of her 'Gray Tower Trilogy' which has been in Amazon's top 100 Best Sellers list for historical fantasy. She has also released a short story in the 'New Myths' anthology by HDWP Books. 'The Tower's Alchemist' ebook is currently free to download at Amazon.com. (more...)

Sgrouples Raises $1.2M Series Seed II
by BWW News Desk - Sep 3, 2014

“Americans care about privacy,” Weinstein continues. “A 2014 Harris Interactive Poll found that 99% of Americans now claim to care about their online privacy. 71% 'care deeply.' Repeated privacy violations by Internet companies and government agencies have caused consumers of all ages to view social media as a venue for spying and stalking, instead of one for safe personal connection. NSA's Prism and cyber bullying exacerbate this. The fatal design flaw is that companies like Facebook and Google have uncontrolled access to our personal data, regardless of their so-called 'privacy settings.' Our data is scraped, tracked, harvested, and leaked to/by strangers, employers, colleges, advertisers, insurers, the NSA, data brokers and criminals. Consumers are the product, marketers are the customer. Sgrouples seeks to change that. This investment is a significant step toward that change. Beyond this, we anticipate a future round of $15M - $20M.” (more...)

New British Comedy, THE NEW MRS. D, is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2014

Debut British author Heather Hill has released an inspirational comedy novel for women, 'The New Mrs D.' Her incredibly funny & original novel has been published as an e-book with assistance from her prestigious, London-based literary agency. The book was officially released on the 4th of July, yet went straight in to the Amazon UK 100 Best Sellers Chart for Women's Fiction Humour after just twenty four hours of being made available for pre-order. It is a sharp-witted, empowering and hilarious romp about one woman's midlife awakening on a honeymoon... alone. When funny, feisty, forty-something Bernice plans the adventure trip of a lifetime, she doesn't expect to be spending it alone. But as it turns out, contributing to a Greek fish explosion, naked karaoke and misadventures with volcanoes are exactly what she needs to stop fretting about errant husbands and really start living. About the author: From her humble beginnings on Twitter, posting lines like: 'You know, swinging children upside down really opens doors for you', Heather Hill began to amass a large following of people enjoying her daily comedy ramblings. She went on to write for live comedy shows, for local comedians (one of whom won an award while using some of her material) and eventually submitted scripts for television. With no paid work forthcoming, she also began writing a unique comedy blog of errors, taking a readership of one (thanks Mr Hill) to the 9.7k following it has today. To date Heather Hill's blog has had over 13,000 hits. The New Mrs D is a unique breed of women's commercial fiction and is available on Amazon for just £1.99! 'The New Mrs D is a refreshing, sharp-witted and empowering romp that reflects real life, delves into unspoken about subjects and slaps the reader in the face with honesty.' - Fleur Ferris, author. 'The perfect setting for a hilarious update to Eat, Pray, Love' - Tara Gladden, Editor (more...)
