Astar Print Publishes AADEN BLUESTAR: THE AWAKENING
by BWW News Desk - Sep 21, 2016

The release of a new paperback Aaden BlueStar: The Awakening presents a different slant on a popular theme. Instead of a boy wizard, the boy in this tale discovers he is extraterrestrial. Aaden Greene, the son of a U.S. Senator seems an ordinary boy until a Freak accident awakens his superhuman telepathic powers and presents him with more challenges than the usual coming of age teen. Astounded by his superhero abilities he's also confused by the terrifying vision of metaphysics that appears before him at the timing of his spiritual awakening. As he struggles to come to terms with the responsibilities of these superhuman BlueStar powers, he also discovers that his father is more than an ordinary person and politician dedicated to environmental reform. Not only does Aaden have to adjust to his connections with two extraterrestrial champions, he is also astonished to learn that his father, Senator Adam Greene, is one of them. What amazes him most is the connection between his father, a Senator running for President and the charismatic E.T. with whom he has also had a telepathic connection throughout lifetimes. With the world in turmoil due to global conflicts and environmental catastrophe, the ecological issues take centre stage in this story. The extraterrestrial interest in Earth is more out of concern about the precarious position we've placed ourselves through misuse of our environment. The story poses the question of whether we've already left it too late to remedy the environmental backlash, as evidenced by the increasing occurrence of natural disasters. Aaden BlueStar: The Awakening is aimed at younger readers, but will also appeal to a wider audience of all ages because of the environmental message and the suggestions it presents about how we may recover from the approaching precipice ... with or without extraterrestrial help. Published by New Zealand publisher Astar Print via CreateSpace, Aaden BlueStar: The Awakening is now available in paperback format via https://www.createspace.com/6550223 . The original e-book version is also available from amazon.com in kindle format on https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00RIMSS6G (more...)

BWW Review: LETTERS TO LINDY Fascinates in Tell-All on Australia at Seymour Centre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 19, 2016

You could be guaranteed, no matter where you went or who you were with that at the time her disappearance went public, the circumstances around the death of baby Azaria Chamberlain was the topic of every conversation in Australia. Opinions polarised around the involvement of her mother, Lindy Chamberlain whom some believed to be the fame-hungry, cold-hearted murderer, others the victim of a tragic Freak accident involving a dingo and the phrase that became famous the world over. Either way, scrutiny upon Lindy, who was given a life sentence before being released four years later upon the discovery of further evidence. Whilst living between nationwide roles of villain and victim, Lindy received upwards of 20,000 letters. Many years later, with Lindy remarried and living in America, Australian playwright Alana Valentine was granted the ability to write a play based on this mass of correspondence and Lindy's experience. Letters to Lindy is a remarkable, surprising and touching reflection not so much on Lindy Chamberlain-Creighton herself, but on the impassioned public who one way or another found her so easy to relate to.

DARK GODS AFTER TELLURIA by Barton Paul Levenson is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 23, 2016

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit US publisher, announced the print and eBook release of the dark fantasy novel Dark Gods of Alter Telluria from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, author Barton Paul Levenson. A two-time winner of the Parsec Short Story Contest, Levenson's other novels include 'The Celibate Succubus,' 'Max & Me' and 'Year of the Human.' Pittsburgh astrophysics professor Milo Stanford finally had it good for a change. A one-year sabbatical to teach in London and a beautiful new girlfriend. No worries to speak of-until the day he lost it all. Caught outside in a Freak thunderstorm, Milo is struck by lightning and wakes up on the parallel world of Alter Telluria. Unable to return home, Milo must adjust to life on a new planet of nation-states that are ruled by supernatural beings, a strange, pseudo-Victorian culture, and a pantheon of dark gods who delight in wreaking havoc on the lives of the local denizens. While struggling to adapt to his new situation, Milo is offered a position in the Scholar's Tower by the vampire ruler Sania, Mistress of Lake Gulia. Despite his abrasive personality and lack of deference, he quickly rises to become one of her most trusted advisors. When the ruling wizard of neighboring Carthusia kidnaps Sania in an attempted coup, Milo is chosen to lead a hazardous rescue mission into the stronghold of the wizard's indomitable magic-where the dark gods are certain to test his mettle. Can Milo rescue Sania and restore her as ruler of Lake Gulia, or do the dark gods of Alter Telluria have other plans?

BWW Blog: Hannah Love - Summer of Studying, Sweating, and Singing
by Guest Blogger: Hannah Love - Aug 18, 2016

Summer is officially over for me, and I'm immersed into the school year again. I'm already working on a school production of the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, and my classes are already piling on the homework, tests, and projects. Somehow, I'm not fazed by this mass chaos. It probably is related to the fact that I did not take a break this summer. Summer classes filled my summer until the second week of July (don't worry, I took these classes to lighten my junior year), babysitting was a routine job for me, and I was in a production of Shrek the Musical at a local community theatre.  (more...)
