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...)

Ron Glick Explores Divinity in Fantasy Fiction
by BWW News Desk - Jul 29, 2014

Fantasy Author Ron Glick is known for nothing if not his diversity. With two epic fantasy and one high fantasy series to his credit, not to mention being the author of the longest running comic book trivia series in print and the editor of a Golden Age Comic Book Restoration Project, the greatest wonder so far is where the mind of this author will take his loyal readers next. This July, that question is answered - Ron returns to the world of Na'Ril for the second installment in his Chaos Rising series. In 'Tarinel's Song,' Ron introduced his readers to events occurring in another region of the world of Na'Ril, where his epic Godslayer Cycle is set - and to the idea that the consequences of a centuries-old prophecy could prove just as devastating as the battle between the Old Gods and New Order. With a new pantheon of Gods involved in their own internal conflicts, once more mortals needed to step forward to do what even deities were unable to do. In 'Immortal's Discord,' Ron continues to push the boundaries of fantasy with his epic tales of the role Gods play in fantasy Fiction. With the true origin of the Hand revealed, the rise of a God, and the fall of a tyrant, the prophecy that has come to be known as Tarinel's Song is not yet finished wrecking havoc upon the residents of the Eastern Realms of Na'Ril. But when the end of the prophecy is finally revealed, who will be left standing? The threat raised by Tarinel's Song has passed, but the prophecy is still unfinished. Once more, the unlikely heroes of the Eastern Realms are pulled into the path of destiny woven by this centuries' old divination. With only two verses of eight fulfilled, great portent is now given to the ancient predictions, yet still none understand when and where the elements of the prophecy will come to pass. A new dawn is coming to the Eastern Realms - a new God is destined to rise and a great tyrant is foretold to be defeated. But much must fall in the path of the prophecy, as well - including an extra-dimensional stronghold and even magic itself. Will the heroes of 'Tarinel's Song' be able to reunite in time to save their world, or will the prophecy's demands be too great for mere mortals to withstand? 'Highly recommended to those who love a great fantasy story, filled with wonderful imagination.' - Julie Elizabeth Powell, on 'Tarinel's Song' '[T]he author is a true storyteller. I have to admire the world he created and the way he meshed several stories and plot lines together.' - Crystal of Orchard Book Club, on 'Tarinel's Song' Ron Glick (born January 20, 1969) is a community activist, and is presently active in several charitable enterprises. He was born in Plainville, KS. After living in various states, he currently lives in Kalispell, MT. He is the author of The Godslayer Cycle, Chaos Rising and Oz-Wonderland series, as well as having written ten volumes of the Ron El's Comic Book Trivia Series. Ron is a strong advocate of preserving our cultural legacy and has created the Golden Age Comic Book Preservation Project in pursuit of this ideal. He is presently working on the third novel of Oz_Wonderland series, due to be released on January 1, 2015. He loves contact and welcomes input on his work through his website at: http://ronglick.com (more...)

Debut Novel's 'Uniquely Real' Dialogue Births New Sub-Genre? (by MediaPe); New Approach to Fiction Turns Heads in Book Industry.
by BWW News Desk - Jul 26, 2014

Visit www.theperfecteverything.net for contact details, review copies, photos, and an author bio. Debut Novel's "Uniquely Real" Dialogue Births New Sub-Genre? Fiction that moved the most units the last few years has largely been in the YA and crime genres, leading critics to speculate that readers of Fiction today tend to read more for sheer entertainment, escape and a general relaxed thinking disposition. 'You will be hard-pressed to find literary Fiction in its truest form crack even the New York Times Book Review today,' novelist Jeffrey Allen said. Rather than focusing on what sells however, Mr. Allen has sought to bring something fresh into the modern Fiction landscape in his debut novel 'The Perfect Everything': narrative realism. A potential sub-genre where dialogue becomes a more natural lubricant for other artistic components that flow through and around it such as character, tone, prose and plot. This is accomplished by breaking some rules. In order to accomplish what he calls 'uniquely real' narration, Mr. Allen employs a first-person, present-tense stream-of-conscience to give the reader a front row seat within the mind of protagonist Alan Jones and his hyperactive musings on relationships, careers and comedy. 'Even YA and crime books still come at you with unrealistic dialogue and narration that to some extent derives from an author's fear of being portrayed as writer with no command of the craftsomeone bereft of artistic, literary prowess,' said Mr. Allen. 'Authors fear they will be condescending to their readers. They also worry about the backlash they might receive for using too many contractions or run-on sentences or for beginning sentences with prepositions. And yet, that's how we talk. To be honest, I'm surprised we haven't already seen more realistic dialogue, especially in YA.' These fears are certainly not present in 'The Perfect Everything,' a self-published work with an initial exclusive release on Amazon this week that has been garnering buzz across all demographics. 'I think this is something fresh and interesting that will catch on quick,' said 33-year-old Brian Flamming who first learned of the book a year earlier in a focus group for the novel where narration was the core topic. 'Yes, it is a super fun read and I love the characters, but what moved me was the dialogue and narration that allowed me to really relate to the characters.' 'This book was definitely not written for women, but women will love the accessibility and insight into the mind of a 20s-something guy, which comes from the writing,' said 28-year-old reader Carrie Ralston.

Vermont Author Releases New Book of Poetry & Thoughts - 'Glory Grain of Courage'
by BWW News Desk - Jul 26, 2014

In this second in a series of published poems, entitled 'Glory Grain of Courage,' the author authentically attempts not only to explain but also admonish to the readers and people of all walks of life that it pays to be courageous while pursuing one's life endeavors; notwithstanding how herculean, tough or insurmountable a task may seem, if one arms oneself with courage while tackling matters at hand; the solution will eventually emerge. Making choices, as a matter of fact, requires patient and carefulness, but what follows a genuinely valuable choice that has been made is encouragement and total commitment. Like a mountain climber, ocean diver, Olympian, and various contestants in outstanding and highly rated events, reflective writers' examination of events, borders Olympic game competitions: right from commencement you may need to take a deep breath, and follow your track to the end. One thing is however conspicuous and crystal clear, and informs the reason for being advised to be courageous when pursuing the clearest choice of service, or collectively made so that the goal of purpose will be realized, so that when temptations of various forms abound everywhere and at any given circumstances, it is there- fore not to be ruled out that the forces of deception, distraction and discouragement may intervene on the way sown with intent to disrupt and interfere with one's will power. When this happens, quickly recall you owe it to yourself to reach the end of the track. Hold tenaciously to your selected goal, following your path stay focused; abiding resolutely to the plan, never seeking to give up. Your courage will get you there. Always yielding to your inner positive guide as opposed to externally negative voices that gets one to succumb to fears and failures. Stay the course. Follow your initial instinct: your journey, your dream goal is waiting to be unleashed. Stay undaunted in the event of unfounded confusion. Don't ever give up; keep moving forward; steadily on the course until the objective is fully and completely achieved. Indeed, you may find that a spine steel of courage acts like a catalyst, a moral booster that enables one to attain. No matter what the gravity of condition that is encountered along the lane of attainment of a goal, there may be some slips and skips, but no fall, in so far as courage is set in place; all will be well in the end.
