A chance encounter at a hotel plays upon Kitty's mind in the dark comedy Happy Now? by Lucinda Coxon, as she struggles to balance personal freedom with family life, fidelity and a demanding job. Her husband is more interested in misplaced apostrophes than in their marriage, her parents are looking down the barrel of oblivion, and although she toys with the idea of joining a gym, Kitty's running out of time for big changes. Happy Now? dares to ask just that, in this painfully truthful, darkly comic take on contemporary life and how to survive it.

BWW Recap: THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER Series Premiere Brings Blood and Faith to FX
by Kara McCoy - Sep 15, 2015

I think it was Thomas Edison who said that series premieres are 99% anticipation and 1% reservation. Or he would have had he lived to see the dawn of television. There's some truth to that; however, as I found myself counting down the days to the airing of Kurt Sutter's latest FX pilot, I felt like I needed to amend that statement to reflect a more equal distribution of expectation. As a massive SONS OF ANARCHY fan, I was obviously excited to learn that cable TV's favorite bad boy would be hitting our screens again. At the same time, as a massive SONS OF ANARCHY fan, I wondered if THE BASTARD EXECUTIONER could possibly match up to one of the greatest dramas in recent television history (is that too strong? Maybe. But I'm sticking with it.) Did tonight's series premiere provide the answer? (more...)

Joann Harris Releases Horror Novel, THE BLOOD OF WOLFBANE
by BWW News Desk - May 14, 2015

Once they bayou was thick with it. The buttery yellow petals. The delicately veined green leaves. The seductive scent of wolfbane. The Dawn Of Doom... Philip was happy now that he had his pint of old character and decided to take a shortcut through the graveyard toward home. He paused every now and then to speak to the headstones or crypt of some poor departed soul he had known it better days. Then he heard a moaning. He looked around, spotting a huge mound of earth that he did not remember being there the last time, he took this short cut. Philip decided to look. He staggered toward the mound of earth, stopping as he heard a snarling sound. It was muffled, as it came from the grave itself. 'The Blood Of Wolfbane' is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Details: 'The Blood Of Wolfbane' By Joann Harris Published: January 2015 ISBN: 978-1507745045 ASIN: B00IHF84OE Pages: 352 Genre: Horror About The Author: Joann Harris was born in Durham, North Carolina and from an early age, she always wanted to write horror. What is it about horror that she finds so tantalizing? For one she finds terror a thrill a minute. Even when she was a teen she taunted her friends and relatives with stories about blood and gore, embellishing on the sordid details as they squirmed and cringed. Harris currently resides in Baltimore, Maryland.
