by BWW News Desk - Sep 11, 2014

'Bob the Bubble Gum Spider' is a spellbinding account of a physically challenged hatch-ling orb weaver named Bob and an evil organization of black widow spiders called the Immaculate Order of the Web that requires him killed . . . but the black widows are after a lot more than just Bob. The IOW seeks to subjugate the world and the hairy two-legs are very much in their way . . . and the black widows of the IOW are not tolerant of that which is in their way: 'Nedra was always of the mind that she could handle things herself and had come up with a few solutions of her own. For one, she was fondly considering eating some of the no-account, malingering pledging priests, starting with Osiris. That would surely provide the rest with the proper incentive to be more productive. Of course, she had another solution that was even simpler and required no action on her part: She dearly wished the forest would catch fire and burn.' Bob and his associates try to defend themselves, but can they save the hairy two-legs? 'Bob the Bubble Gum Spider' is available online in ebook format.

Ben Schwartz Debuts with THE DRIFT OF THINGS
by BWW News Desk - Jul 15, 2014

MANCHESTER, N.H., July 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) In 2008 Ben Schwartz-a young New Hampshire English and special education teacher-decided it was time to get that first novel written. He entered Southern New Hampshire University's low-residency MFA in Fiction and Nonfiction program, and wrote that novel-'The Drift of Things'-as his thesis. Last month 'The Drift of Things' was named the Silver Medal Winner in the Piscataqua Press's 2014 Novel Contest, one of three Manuscripts plucked from some 120 submissions. And as quickly as that-in a world that now includes print-on-demand publishing-Schwartz's novel is available from Piscataqua. 'We're all very happy for Ben,' said novelist/essayist Benjamin Nugent, the director of Southern New Hampshire's MFA program. 'And we're looking forward to books by other alumni coming out soon from presses like Viking and Da Capo.' While at Southern New Hampshire, Schwartz worked primarily with novelists Katherine Towler ('Snow Island') and Merle Drown ('The Suburbs of Heaven') in crafting his story of a middle-aged man who has blamed himself for the drowning death of his best friend in high school, and who then returns for his mother's funeral to the town from which he has exiled himself. 'Funny, smart, unpredictable, and true, 'The Drift of Things' is that rare book in contemporary fiction, one with both heart and intelligence,' wrote Katherine Towler in her response to the finished work. 'Ben Schwartz has delivered a cast of characters so real you expect to find them watching TV in the living room. In a beautifully-crafted story about what remains broken and yet healed in all of us, Schwartz has established himself as a writer to watch.' Schwartz's story marks the latest publishing success for an MFA program that was founded in 2006 by historical novelist Robert Begiebing and that has only recently reached its full complement of 65 students and 15 faculty members. Begiebing's vision involved a two-year program-with 'Go Write Your Book' as its motto-in which students would immediately apply themselves to the completion of a publishable, professional-level Manuscript, as Schwartz did. Though the program's alumni community remains small, there were some immediate post-graduate successes: 'If I Told You So' by Timothy Woodward '08, a novel that came out from Kensington in 2012; and 'Lost and Found Hanoi,' a work of photojournalism co-authored by Elizabeth Rush '11, which came out from the Things Asian Press earlier this year. But now the floodgates are open, as a number of new alumni have recently turned their theses into book contracts, some with large commercial houses. Pratima Cranse '12 has a so-far-untitled novel in the works from Viking. 'The Trees Beneath Us,' a novel by Darren R. Leo '13, will initiate a new literary line of fiction from the Stark House Press. And Charlie Stella '13 is co-authoring a biography, 'Dogfella,' due out from Da Capo. Other Southern New Hampshire alumni have novels on the production line at several small presses like Piscataqua. 'The Holy Fool' by Ken Butler '12 is forthcoming from the Touchstone Press; 'They Call Me Crazy' by Kelly Stone Gamble '12 from Red Adept Publishing; 'Fallen' by Mike Hancock '08 and 'The Keepers of Mercia' by James Marino '09, both from Black Rose Writing. 'This is a hard thing to do, taking your very first attempt at long-form fiction or nonfiction and getting it published,' said Nugent. 'But we're proving now that we can make Bob's go-write-your book model work. At the very least, our students are leaving the program with stories that have a fighting chance in the marketplace, and the skills to write more.' Nonetheless, Nugent said, he and his faculty are moving to diversify the program by also offering a curriculum track for those who want their MFA work to simply prepare them to write that first novel or nonfiction narrative-rather than to require writing it immediately. 'We think some students would benefit more from being able to experiment,' Nugent said. 'This would involve, for example, trying out lots of short stories or essays and throwing them out, or trying out a few novel or memoir ideas, and finally settling on one and getting it started. Students will still complete a thesis, but the parameters will be more flexible.' (more...)

Peter Schickele to Perform '50 YEARS OF P.D.Q. BACH' at The Colonial Theatre, 7/26
by BWW News Desk - Jul 10, 2014

Musical Humorist Peter Schickele will perform 50 Years of P.D.Q. Bach: A Triumph of Incompetence at The Colonial Theatre on July 26 at 8pm. It's been 50 years since Professor Peter Schickele released P.D.Q. Bach on an unsuspecting musical public. And it's been 80 years since the professor's mother released the professor on an society ill-prepared for such singular genius. And now, because everyone loves a birthday, Professor Schickele has reached back across the decades to explore the damp vaults and dusty attics of Leipzig to once again celebrate the twenty-first child (out of twenty) of the great J.S. Bach. This special, once in a half-century, musical extravaganza will feature the creme de la creme of history's most justifiably neglected composer. (more...)

Serendipity Literary Agency and She Writes Press Announce Their First Memoir Discovery Competition
by BWW News Desk - Aug 31, 2014

In an effort to promote and publish more women's voices, the agency and publisher have teamed up to offer one Grand Prize Winner a publishing contract with She Writes Press. She Writes Press and Serendipity Literary Agency announced recently that they have joined forces to offer one author a partnership publishing contract for their memoir. The Memoir Discovery Competition's Grand Prize winner will receive a publishing deal with She Writes Press and a She Writes Press Publishing Package, valued at $3900, which includes such services as: custom interior design for up to 120,000 words; custom cover design; print-on-demand setup with Lightning Source (LSI); e-book file preparation and upload to Amazon, B&N, and iBookstore; distribution to the trade via Ingram Publisher Services; a professional proofread of the final, laid-out Manuscript; copyright filing; warehousing of short-run printed books; preordering and fulfillment of all orders; telephone and e-mail support from a She Writes Press project manager; and more. It was Serendipity Literary Agency CEO and author (You Should Really Write a Book: How to Writer Sell and Market Your Memoir) Regina Brooks who, inspired by She Writes Press's mission to support the efforts of women writers, first came up with the idea for the contest: 'As an agent, writers often send me wonderful memoirs that have great potential but don't feel right for the Big Five publishers,' Brooks said. 'I reached out to She Writes Press because I was interested in partnering around our shared passion for promoting and publishing women's voices, and in giving one standout author a remarkable publishing experience.' In addition to the publishing package, the contest's Grand Prize winner-along with her fellow top five entrants-will receive a fifteen-minute, one-on-one consultation session with Brooks. All entrants will also receive a short written assessment of their submission, with suggestions for what their next editorial steps might be if they wish to pursue publication. She Writes Press publisher Brooke Warner said she and press co-founder Kamy Wicoff are especially happy with this extra offering for all participating authors. 'Our hope is that this contest will rally writers,' Warner said. 'We designed it specifically so that all entrants get constructive feedback, and we feel great about being able to give everyone who submits a chance to come away with ideas for how they can improve their work.' The Grand Prize winner will be selected based on the merit of her entry, which must consist of either a query letter and at least two full chapters of the work, or a query letter and a full-length nonfiction book proposal. The contest is open to trans women, genderqueer writers, and non-binary-identifying writers, but specifically not to male-identified writers. The deadline for entry is August 31, 2014. 'She Writes Press is always on the lookout for opportunities to engage our community and promote women's voices, and this contest is a perfect opportunity to do just that,' Warner said. 'We're thrilled to be partnering with Serendipity Literary on this, and we can't wait to see all the great submissions that are sure to come!' Don't miss the last few days to submit your work! To participate in the contest entrants should go to bit.ly/1z2HoB0 (more...)

BWW Recap: CURTAIN: POIROT'S LAST CASE Packs a Punch
by Elizabeth Peterson-Vita - Aug 30, 2014

The final, 70th episode in the dramatization of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot stories, CURTAIN, starring David Suchet in his definitive portrayal of the Belgian detective, is now being streamed by AcornTV. This long-awaited episode, a career-capping achievement for Suchet, does not disappoint; it is among the best of the more recent Poirot episodes, and is relatively faithful to Christie's novel, written in the 1940's and published in 1975. While multiple suspicious characters and blind alleyways abound in this 90 minute adaptation, the plot does not rely as heavily on familiar Christie parlor tricks such as unbelievable double identities. Instead, it explores a much more psychological landscape, particularly in terms of Poirot himself, his longtime friend Hastings (Hugh Fraser), and a diabolical psychopath who revels in provocation rather than personal bloodletting.
