Dennis Frahmann Releases THE FINNISH GIRL About a Multi-Generational Finnish American Family
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2014

A multi-generational story about a Finnish American family in Wisconsin and how their American dream threatens to become a nightmare, Publishers Weekly calls the novel 'Melancholic, brooding, and cut-to-the-bone incisive, this is a tale to remember.' 'The Finnish Girl' is about how secrets kill. Not just those you choose to keep from others, or even those that others guard from you. There remains those secrets that you so desperately hide from yourself. They all catch up with Lempi Makinen Lahti. When Lempi's teenage son Danny discovers her suicide, he seeks to solve the mysteries that defined her life and death. A pack of letters and clippings hidden in an old family trunk may be the only keys to understanding both his mother's past and his own future. 'The Finnish Girl' is a richly told tapestry of interwoven characters-the family patriarch who emigrates from Finland to the United States to create his own future, a son who turns his back on his home as part of an ill-fated mission to Russia during the Depression, the elderly mother who faces deportation in an America driven by fear during the Red Scare, and the young Finnish girl who cares too much about the injustices she sees. Decisions in one generation propel another on unexpected paths, until one family's hopes for the American dream threaten to become its nightmare. 'The Finnish Girl,' a semi-finalist in the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition, is available in both print and ebook format.

Andrew Shecktor Releases 'Centralia PA, Devils Fire' Historical Fiction Novel
by BWW News Desk - Aug 25, 2014

Andrew Shecktor, Berwick, PA resident and author and former creative writing instructor, is proud to announce the final release of his first novel 'Centralia PA, Devils Fire,' published by and available at Amazon.com. Visit the website at www.centraliapadevilsfire.com. It all began with a preacher scorned, beat down by a band of brutal, ruthless Mollie Maguires in 1869. The town - Centralia, PA. Just the previous year the town founder, Alexander Rae, was brutally murdered by the same gang. With nothing but time on his hands while recovering from his injuries, he conjured a scheme to exact revenge, and placed a curse on the town that one day none shall remain but the St. Ignatius Roman Catholic Church. Inspired by previous visits to the town and ultimately by a trip to the now deserted town, bought out by the state following an unstoppable mine fire that began in 1962, the author decided to write a fitting eulogy to the town. The novel is a Fictional accounting based on fact and metaphorically presents the mine owners and industrialists as Satanical manifestations in need of exorcism. A cross between the style of 'The Wizard of Oz' and 'Alice in Wonderland' the short novel is fun to read and also educational. General historical facts have been added to set the tone for each chapter, and great attention has been given to historical accuracy of things such as weather conditions, dates, astronomical data and historical figures. The author comments, 'In then end it will leave you wondering if there was indeed a conspiracy by the mine companies to take over the town by eminent domain.' Today, only a few residents remain, having won an uphill legal battle to remain in the town. The town zip code has been retired, and when the remaining residents move or die, the town will be turned over to the state. And then... there is the old man with the pipe... but you will have to read the book to learn more about him. (more...)

Chris Birdy Releases "The Girl in Black Pajamas"
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2014

Chris Birdy is proud to announce the release of her novel, 'The Girl in Black Pajamas.' The intriguing book video trailer for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' was revealed today on DGT Book Promotion news. In addition, Birdy shared her insights on the inspiration for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas.' 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is the second novel in the Pajama series. The mystery Fiction novel takes the reader on adventure through an attempted murder, hacking schemes, a man fearing the possibility of prison, family issues and more. The official book video trailer for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' can be viewed on YouTube. About The Book R&B Investigations is under attack. Their employee is shot in the back as he enters the building, and a hacker is trying to compromise their secure network. While the Boston police investigate the shooting, Bogie McGruder needs to find the culprit who is trying to put them out of business. Bogie and his partner Rose Jones can't disclose their internet problems to the cops since Bogie is a hacker himself. Bogie McGruder returns to Boston with his four- year-old daughter Isabella. He joins up with Rose Jones' uncle Walter who is fresh for Lompoc Prison. Bogie and Walter strengthen their firewalls while they try to determine who is behind the invasion. As the R&B team hones in on the culprit, they uncover several murders and discover a plot to wipe out the financial institutions in Boston. While Bogie is in Boston, his extended family in Palm Beach becomes enmeshed in a sex scandal that threatens to ruin lives and careers in the Palm Beach Sheriff Office. Feeling like a wishbone about to snap, Bogie tries to handle problems in both cities while Isabella continues her quest for someone to teach her the Five-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart technique as seen in Kill Bill Volume 2. This tale of murder, revenge and greed takes the reader on a whirlwind trip from Boston to Palm Beach and back. Buckle your seatbelt. Praise for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas': 'This was the most exciting book I've read in a long time. The action starts on page 1 and never stops.'- A reader review About The Author Chris Birdy is the author of the Pajama series. 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is the second book in the series. Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When Birdy returned to the States, she settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising her family. For more than twenty years, Birdy did investigative work for Boston law firms. Being an avid mystery fan made her either fearless or foolhardy while working in rough neighborhoods and housing projects. Birdy knows how it feels to have a gun stuck to the back of her head and that was in a courtroom. She knows how it feels to have an angry client walk in her office and point a small gun at her saying, 'I want my money!' That was when the author opened her desk drawer, removed a large gun and drew back the slide while aiming it at him. 'Have a seat!' she said. Birdy states 'There is no substitute for experience.' The author lives outside of Boston with her husband and also resides in Palm Beach where they escape to hide from the snow. 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is published by Createspace and is available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
