New Paranormal Suspense Novel Released by Sandra R. CampbellNew Paranormal Suspense Novel Released by Sandra R. Campbell
by BWW News Desk - May 15, 2015

Author Sandra R. Campbell is pleased to announce the release of her new paranormal suspense novel, 'The Dead Days Journal.' The daughter of a radical doomsday prepper, Leo Marrok spent her entire life preparing for the end. A skilled fighter and perfect marksman, Leo is her father's second-in-command when Armageddon comes to pass. Together, they lead a group of survivors to a secure bunker deep in the Appalachian Mountains. Vincent Marrok is willing to take extreme measures to repopulate their broken world. Leo's refusal marks her as a traitor. With father and daughter at odds for the first time, their frail community is thrust into turmoil. Until the unthinkable happens, a blood-thirsty horde arrives. The impending attack will destroy all that they have worked for. To protect her home and everything she believes in, Leo puts her faith in the arms of the enemy-a creature only rumored to exist-the one she calls Halloween. An alliance born out of necessity evolves into feelings Leo is ill-equipped to handle. 'The Dead Days Journal' is a post-apocalyptic story of love and family told through Leo Marrok's first-hand account and the pages of Vincent's personal journal, giving two very different perspectives on what it takes to survive. 'The Dead Days Journal' is available in both print and eBook formats. Book Details: 'The Dead Days Journal,' Vol. 1 By Sandra R. Campbell Published: March 2015 ISBN: 978-1506100401 ASIN: B00V5FWLII Pages: 266 Genre: Paranormal, Romantic Suspense, Dystopian About The Author: Sandra R. Campbell lives along the tranquil waters of the Chesapeake Bay with her husband, Greg. She can trace her passion for the macabre back to reading Edgar Allen Poe as a child, with her pet crow, Big Fellow, by her side. She has since submerged herself in a wide range of dark Literature. An avid thrill seeker, Sandra is always looking for her next big adrenaline rush, and when spelunking, climbing and monster hunting fails to deliver, she turns to the creation of through-the-rabbit-hole worlds and sends her characters on their own adventures. Sandra is a member of Romance Writes of America, the Maryland Writers' Association, head of a M.W.A. critique group, and founder/co-author of waterfrontwriters.com.

Ocean Galleries Presents The Art of John Lennon, 6/18Ocean Galleries Presents The Art of John Lennon, 6/18
by BWW News Desk - May 12, 2015

Ocean Galleries is honored to present an exhibition of the extraordinary works of John Lennon. An unparalleled collection, 'The Art of John Lennon' will be on exhibit and available for acquisition from Thursday, June 18 through Monday, June 22, 2015, with Ocean Galleries open daily from 10:00 AM through 10:00 PM. Special receptions with the Collection Curator, Lynne Clifford, will take place from 7:00 PM until 10:00 PM on Friday, June 19, and Saturday, June 20, and from 1:00 PM until 4:00 PM on Sunday, June 21. Ms. Clifford, an authority on the artwork of John Lennon, will be in the gallery and available to the public; speaking on the exhibited works and providing insight into the history and stories behind the artwork. All events are complimentary and open to the public. Ms. Yoko Ono Lennon, who created the program, had the specific intent of helping local non-profit organizations in each city the exhibit visits. As such, Ocean Galleries will be asking guests to make a $5 or more donation to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey. In his art, John Lennon, the legendary musician, songwriter, poet, philosopher, and artist, delivered a consistent message - peace and love. Art was actually his first love, as he began drawing long before he owned a guitar. John Lennon's artwork celebrates human love and communication - two themes at the heart of his contribution to the art of the twentieth century. His iconic Self-Portrait image has become the cornerstone of the collection. These posthumous, limited edition prints are adapted from Lennon's original drawings. The art has been selected from rare archival sketches and is representative of his whimsical and thought provoking imagery. Each print is reproduced utilizing the sophisticated and detailed standards typical for archival fine art printing processes, guided, approved, and hand-signed by Yoko Ono. In many ways, John Lennon was truly a renaissance man whose insights and perspective helped shape the sensibility of the contemporary mind. Born John Winston Lennon on October 9, 1940 in Liverpool, England, he died tragically on December 8, 1980. He married Yoko Ono at Gibraltar on March 20, 1969. On March 29, 1969, John and Yoko commenced their famous bed-in for peace at the Amsterdam Hilton. While music will be remembered as his most popular art form, he loved both Literature and his visual art, studying at Liverpool Art Institute from 1957-1960. He penned and illustrated three books: 'In His Own Write' (1964), 'A Spaniard in the Works' (1965), and 'Skywriting By Word of Mouth' (1987). As early as 1969, John began moving toward a return to visual art. He was primarily interested in drawing and favored the creative loose sketch, working in pen and ink. In 1969, as a wedding gift for Yoko, John drew the Bag One Portfolio, a chronicle of their wedding ceremony, honeymoon, and their plea for world peace, the Bed-in. The suite also contained erotic sketches. The Bag One Series was first published and exhibited in January 1970 at the London Art Gallery. On the second day, the exhibition was closed by Scotland Yard and the erotic lithographs confiscated. During 1986, Yoko Ono decided to share John's artistic genius with the public by publishing the first in a series of prints entitled This is My Story Both Humble and True, followed with Bag One Continued..., Dakota Days, Karuizawa Series, and Japan Through John Lennon's Eyes. These works are a commentary on John's everyday life, his wife, Yoko, and their son, Sean. The drawings are whimsical yet poetic, loving portraits of their years together. Drawn by one of the most important cultural figures of our time, these illustrations celebrate human love and communication - two themes at the heart of John Lennon's contribution to the art of the twentieth century. As a teenager in Liverpool, England, John Lennon became involved in music, forming his first band, the Quarrymen, which by 1960 had evolved into The Beatles, the most commercially successful band in the history of popular music. Lennon was a visual artist before he picked up his first guitar or wrote his first song. He attended the prestigious Liverpool Art Institute (1957-1960). He continued to draw throughout his life. Lennon's primary medium was line drawing, in either pen, pencil, or Japanese sumi ink. He not only penned, but also sketched the drawings that became illustrations for three bestselling books. In the years that followed, Lennon expressed himself once again through drawing, this time reflecting his love for his family. Since 1989, Bag One Arts has published a series of limited edition prints of his work, which have traveled throughout the world. The graphic collection has traveled throughout the U.S., England, Spain, Italy, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Manila. (more...)
