Loretta M. Green-Warren to Publish Second Children's BookLoretta M. Green-Warren to Publish Second Children's Book
by BWW News Desk - Oct 8, 2014

Local author Loretta M. Green-Warren recently signed a contract with Tate Publishing to publish her second riveting, adventure-filled children's book, 'Chyna's Adventure with Pleasant Pete.' 'Chyna's Adventure with Pleasant Pete' shares an adventure like no other in which Chyna and Miss Penny were not prepared for the surprise they encountered when she enters her secret place. Will Chyna have the courage to help Pleasant Pete save Ratsville from Chubby and the mean Cats? Warren's imaginative style combined with her experiences of motherhood served as inspiration for the unique story. 'My inspiration for this book stems from being a child with a very active imagination then having the privilege of watching my own children use their gift of imagination. This inspired me to want to share the power of imagination with all children,' shared Warren. 'After writing the first book, Chyna's Secret Place Adventure, the character had more adventures to share therefore Chyna's Adventure with Pleasant Pete came to me less than one year after the first book's release.' Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book will be available upon its release through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com. Warren is the host and producer of an online radio show and an amateur photographer. She has spent most of her life surrounded by children. She is the oldest of eight kids and spent several years as a childcare provider. The very first spark for Warren's love for poetry and writing came from reading Edgar Allen Poe's The Raven. She could see the story in her mind, which ignited a passion for writing like nothing she had experienced before. Warren is now a published poet and children's author and believes that there is nothing more important that God and family. She is a mother of five, is married to the love of her life and lives in South Carolina.

First Book in the Mitosis Fantasy Series is ReleasedFirst Book in the Mitosis Fantasy Series is Released
by BWW News Desk - Oct 3, 2014

Texas author, Mitchel Street is pleased to announce the release of the first book in his Mitosis fantasy series, 'Prophase: A Present Tale.' Piper Walker, a high school senior, has seen her share of hard times. At a young age, she lost her mother to breast cancer shortly after her brother Charlie was born. Raising her baby brother under the wrathful eye of an abusive and alcoholic father, she relies heavily on her small, but tight core of friends. Lisa, her best friend from kindergarten, and Chris, her longtime boyfriend, help to keep her above water. Along with her friends, Piper's elderly neighbor, Ester, and her lynx point Siamese cat, Jazz, become the extended family she never had. Even before her mom died, Piper always felt different. She was the opposite of her popular best buddy Lisa, and didn't enjoy doing what most other teenage girls liked to do. She wasn't much for fixing up and thought hanging out was boring. Music and nature were her muses. Piper grew up next to a forest with countless paths, one of which led to the high school; the others to myriad of seasonal wonders. Piper spent countless hours in the woods exploring and finding solace in the trees, wild flowers, and every kind of animal. Although somewhat shy and insecure of her voice, Piper was lead vocals and a passionate bass player for a garage band called 'The Coat Tails' that consisted of Lisa, Chris, and their close friend Josh. Having never sounded better, they were sure to win the senior talent show. After a Spring Fling dance, a near-death experience prematurely rebirths Piper to her destiny, for not even she knows who she really is. Her identity has remained buried deep for her protection. She awakens to a dimension where light laden with emotions emits from everything around her. Overnight, Piper and her world are transformed into something radically different. What she thought was real was only the beginning, a thin veneer to actual reality. Universal truths are turned upside down. She wakes to a magical world with an ancient history and kingdoms of races. Life becomes way more beautiful, complex, and breathtaking than she ever imagined. A menagerie of supernatural and metallic gleaming mythical characters come to assist Piper to take her first steps in her new world and keep her safe. The realm of brilliant auras, feelings, and endless color surround her creating a language she doesn't understand. She begins a long journey to discovering and mastering her powers and senses that defy fantasy. Riding gravity waves, casting spells, and leaping to exotic locations become her new curriculum. However, amongst the Eden lies a fatal danger. For centuries, a tyrannical rule has suppressed and strangled the enchanted world she is now part of. A most brilliant Guardian, named Eli, and his council, the Arbitri, have become the only voice. Evolution has stopped. Only Piper has the power to bring about change. Amongst the unspeakable beauty, unknown danger, and the desire to find out who she really is, Piper stumbles upon an unexplainable, first-time love that becomes the only thing that she can cling to in her stormy and unexpected life. From the first time his voice dances on her ear drums, she is taken by something wonderfully unreal. Piper now must juggle her two worlds - and disguise her increasing abilities and morphing appearance while attempting to be the slightly nerdy teenager everyone knows. This story captivates the imagination with the beauty of nature and the celebration of love, life, and light - and the power of one girl. Mitchel Street is currently creating 'Metaphase' and 'Anaphase,' the follow-up to 'Prophase,' part of the Mitosis series. 'Prophase: A Present Tale' is available in e-book format at all major online retailers. Paperback versions are available on the author's website at www.mitchelstreet.com Book Details: Prophase: A Present Tale By Mitchel Street Publisher: Cseri Consulting Published: March 2014 ISBN: 978-0991554300 ASIN: B00JMUVHAG Pages: 310 Genre: Fantasy, YA Fantasy About The Author: Mitchel Street is an avid storyteller with an innate passion for fiction writing. He was raised in rural Wisconsin near the shores of Lake Michigan across from a small forest that became his second home. As an adult, M. Street has lived on the East Coast in Boston, on the West Coast in San Jose, and now resides South, in the great city of Austin, TX. A love for nature, art, spirituality, and science has been his foundation. He has been fortunate to have been adopted by Cats, dogs, birds, frogs, turtles, and Monarch butterflies. His professional background is rooted in Engineering having earned a graduate degree in Computer Engineering from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and is technically published (under a different name).
