TO SWALLOW THE EARTH Wins International Book Award
by BWW News Desk - Oct 19, 2016

What if you came home after a journey and your family was no longer there? What if someone else was living in your house, running what you used to manage - and trying to kill you? So begins the thriller 'To Swallow the Earth,' which won this year's International Book Award for western novel. 'It's really my grandfather's story,' says co-author Karl Beckstrand. 'My grandfather grew up exploring the Sierra Nevada Mountains on horseback a hundred years ago. He used that setting for his mystery - set in the Nevada silver rush,' Beckstrand said. After his grandfather passed away in 1992, Beckstrand inherited the manuscript. 'My challenge was to tighten his story and develop the characters while preserving the action, suspense and earthy vernacular.' Beckstrand, who grew up in San Jose, California, has won other literary awards, but this one is special. 'It kind of validates my grandfather's vision - gives him a nod - even beyond the grave.' The thriller also was named a finalist for the Laramie Award and garnered Literary Classics' seal of approval. 'It's getting great reviews online as well,' Beckstrand said. 'The main character is an outcast, half-Mexican, raised by American Indians. But he's fearless and loyal to his friends and family.' In addition to a tough, dark hero, there's a gutsy heroine who is unintimidated in the worst kinds of opposition. Beckstrand's multicultural stories usually have characters of color and surprises at the end. Bestselling author Beckstrand heads Premio Publishing & Gozo Books, which produces multicultural content for educators, libraries, and families. His fifteenth book may be found at and via major booksellers and distributors. The e-book will be temporarily free on Kindle and other platforms through Nov. 25. Beckstrand will present on publishing Tues., Nov. 1 at 6:30 p.m. in the Weber County Library 2039 W. 4000 South, Roy, Utah and Sat., Nov. 5 from 1 - 4 p.m. at the Viridian Center 8030 S. 1825 West, West Jordan, Utah.

Beginning around the year 1000, Jerusalem attained unprecedented significance as a location, destination, and symbol to people of diverse faiths from Iceland to India.

'The Native American Story Book Volume 5 - Stories Of The American Indians For Children' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 19, 2016

'The Native American Story Book Volume 5 - Stories Of The American Indians For Children' features new stories which have been selected for young readers while presenting children with a chance to explore Native American history. Contained within 196 pages in 6x9 format, Mullins brings history to life along with original art by award winning artist C.L. Hause. Most Native American tribes did not write down or record their history, so we have to find out about their past in other ways. They used games, myths, dance, and impersonation to teach the children of their history and ways of life. Their storytelling was filled with family, heritage and stories of the earth. It is through storytelling, that the rich history of the Native American tribes is alive and well today. It has been shared and preserved and still pays tribute to fallen heroes of the past. It is through these glimpses into the past, and these stories much like the ones that are contained in this book, that you can see what a proud heritage they possess and how in tune with the Earth Native Americans really are. Included in this collection are: The Story of the Land of Northern Lights, The Legend of the Bear Family, The Origin of Summer and Winter, The Story of the Buffalo-painted Lodges, The Story of the Camp of the Ghosts, Creation of the First Indians, The Story of the Little Burnt Face, Origin of the Sweat Lodge, Rabbit and the Moon Man, Ghost of the White Deer, Unktomi and the Arrowheads, The Story of the First Pine Trees, Raven and His Grandmother, The Story of the Snow Man, The Origin of Medicine, and many more. For further information, on the writing visit G.W. Mullins' web site at For information on the art of C.L. Hause visit his web site at G.W. Mullins is a Native American of Cherokee decent. He has been a published author for several years.
