BWW Review: The Wonder of Fright Rises with Cape Rep's THE WOMAN IN BLACK
by Kristen Morale - Sep 30, 2016

Many of you may be familiar with The Woman in Black due to it being the second longest running play in London's West End (twenty-nine years strong), or perhaps you were pretty spooked by the 2012 film starring Daniel Radcliffe. However you were lured to see this production, Susan Hill's and Stephen Mallatratt's simple masterpiece of a true English horror story, one without gore or unnecessary violence, really makes for quite an intriguing production. Directed by Damian Baldet, who appeared in last season's Outside Mullingar, Cape Rep's The Woman in Black tests our mental reflexes as the battle between belief and disbelief ensues - as the senses are both heightened and chilled by the story surrounding this mysterious woman who haunts and kills, and who is scaring more than just the superstitious townspeople.

'Bible Bikers: Live Ridin' on the Road to Redemption' is Now Available
by BWW News Desk - Sep 27, 2016

'Bible Bikers: Live Ridin' on the Road to Redemption' offers hope to those who have struggled with crime, addiction, and prison. Members of the Live Ride Ministry and Motorcycle Club share their testimonies about their hard lives, re-conversion and baptism into Christianity, and how they are moving forward, one step at a time, to a clean, sober, and Christian life, under the guidance of Pastor Rick Fish, Sr., himself a biker with a checkered past who has reformed, been ordained, and now leads others onto the road to redemption. Michael Gotz believes these messages are so important that he recorded the testimonies verbatim, with no editorial comment. 'These guys tell it best in their own words, and I wrote it down just as they said them,' said author Michael Gotz. 'I am overwhelmed by the miracle that are these guys, and I want to share with those who need encouragement or enjoy validation of their Christian beliefs.' One reader reviewed this book by saying: 'This is a unique book that is inspiring, courageous and down to earth. Its theme is that it is possible for any of us to overcome great difficulties and character defects, if we are only willing to do so and have the bravery and courage to try. Well, these guys try, and we follow them doing good works, abstaining from drinking, drugs, and crime, and being available to Hells Angels and other bikers who seek them out for help.'

You can order an autographed copy of 'Bible Bikers: Live Ridin' on the Road to Redemption' by visiting www.michaelgotzmedia.com or at Amazon: http://tiny.cc/bibleridersbook. About Michael Gotz: Michael Gotz lives in Culver City, California. He is retired from the air freight industry and is currently a partner in the Contact Photo Lab, a fine arts retouching, printing, and film darkroom business in the Los Angeles Brewery art colony. He holds a B.A. degree in political science from UCLA and an M.A. and Ph.D. in Chinese studies from UC Berkeley. He is always looking for inspiring projects such as this one, where he can learn both specific and universal lessons. For instance, on this project he has learned that an important aspect of belief in someone or something is that the object of the belief also believes back in the believer, e.g., if you believe in Jesus, Jesus will believe in you. Just this one example can provide the basis, for example, in employer-employee relations: if workers believe in the company's goals and objectives, to have a motivated workforce the company must believe in the employee's abilities and motivations. There are many other examples of how religious principles can translate into universal secular application. Michael can be contacted at: michael@michaelgotzmedia.com.

SATISFYING BABYGIRL Wins New Apple Book Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing
by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2016

'Satisfying Babygirl: Her Babygirl Book 1' by Kat Kylie chosen as Medalist Winner in the Erotica category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing. Book Synopsis Kat grew up sheltered in the midwest, opting to bury her face in books while her friends explored other avenues of entertainment. As the desire continued to grow and her body began to change, the pleasures that Kat had been denying herself all those years eventually boiled over. After graduation Kat moved to the west coast in an attempt to find her true self. A small town girl from the midwest, now overwhelmed in the big city, she soon realized how much she'd missed as a teenager. A broke freshman in college, completely out of her depths, she finds herself scrolling through the darker side of the internet where she happens upon Jazz, a more than willing mentor for Kat's coming of age. Their growing friendship turns romantic, stirring feelings in Kat that had long since been forgotten. It isn't long before Jazz takes Kat under her wing and unlocks the forbidden door to deviance. Where will Jazz lead Kat and how far is she willing to go to find the limits of her desire? Read SATISFYING BABYGIRL to find out! About the Author Kat Kylie is an award winning author of literary erotica, comedic author and human resources director. She's not the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. She's the Kat that lives vicariously through the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. In reality, she's your average, run-of-the-mill, boring, everyday, mostly single, professional woman. In 2012, she began reading erotic women's Fiction when the craze hit. She admits it was fun at first, but ultimately unsatisfying. 'I enjoyed the storyline that allowed me to feel as though I wasn't just thumbing through porn, but the sexual aspect was often too mundane to take me to the places I wanted to go. There seemed to be a vast divide between acceptable and taboo. It was either vanilla... or involved lactating step-mothers and/or tentacled creatures from the planet GnipGnop.' That's when Kat decided to develop the 'Her Babygirl' series.
