The End Of Days: Demystifying Biblical Eschatology To Explain The Past, The Secret To The Apocalypse And The End Of The World' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Mar 6, 2017

In his new bestselling book, Roadmap To The End Of Days: Demystifying Biblical Eschatology To Explain The Past, The Secret To The Apocalypse And The End Of The World, Daniel Friedmann takes you on a journey to discover what is really going on with Biblical prophecy and the end of the world, and to then glimpse the future and ponder the role you will play in it. History is a discipline that uses a narrative to examine and analyze a sequence of past events and to objectively postulate the patterns of cause and effect that determined them. This book looks at history from the supernatural perspective. Is history a purposeful process with a beginning and an end, or is it a random series of events with neither purpose nor direction? If history is a guided process, are we near the end of the world? Have we completed preparations for the End of Days? What will happen next? When? Friedmann places world history within the context of the Divine Plan, allowing readers to understand the recent past and what is in store for the future. Learn how the Divine Plan structure is used to examine biblical history from a different perspective, with amazing accuracy and why other experts who interpret the End of Days by deciphering prophecy alone may have it wrong. Put the End of Days into context by examining parallel periods of history that have already occurred. Examine the revelations in scripture coherently and in sequence using the Divine Plan. Learn how the cosmic placement of events, both historical and present, reveals the pattern for future events. A bird's-eye view of where we have been and where we might go in order to bring us to a new level of understanding and a further questioning of our human origins, purpose, destiny, and our ability to alter the path to the future. 'Friedmann has researched and composed another of his signature works deciphering the origins of the universe and decoding the unfolding apocalypse. With this seminal work, he achieves newfound heights unraveling riddles of the past and piercing the veil that obscures future events. Stellar in the stature of his reflections, supreme in the depth of his details, he has gloriously composed a mesmerizing Manuscript that leaves you spellbound.' -Pulitzer nominated author, David W. Menefee (more...)

Annette Oppenlander Releases New World War II Novel
by BWW News Desk - Mar 15, 2017

Historical novelist Annette Oppenlander Completes True Family Saga After 15 years of research and writing, editing and rewriting, local historical author, Annette Oppenlander, releases her fifth novel, 'Surviving the Fatherland.' Spanning thirteen years from 1940 to 1953 and set against the epic panorama of WWII, 'Surviving the Fatherland' is a sweeping saga of family, love, and betrayal that illuminates an intimate part of history seldom seen: the children's war. 'It's been an emotional journey, sifting through my family's past, going through countless revisions and edits,' says Oppenlander. 'At some point I thought I'd never get it right. I set the Manuscript aside time and time again, but the story never left me alone. It kept nagging.' In 2002 Oppenlander interviewed her parents about their experiences as war children in Hitler's Third Reich. While the novel provides a fictionalized account of civilian life from the perspective of war children and youth, it also offers a better understanding of what happened in post-war Germany. Despite its harsh setting and struggles, it is a story of adventure, of love and hope, and ultimately of triumphing against the odds. 'My mother was seven, my father 11 when WWII started, the deadliest conflict in human history,' says Oppenlander. 'I wanted to shed some light not only on the plight of war children, but also on the history of post-war Germany. Many people assume that everything returned to normal quickly. Nothing could be farther from the truth.' About the Story Surviving the Fatherland: A True Coming-of-age Love Story Set in WWII Germany tells the true and heart-wrenching stories of Lilly and Günter struggling with the terror-filled reality of life in the Third Reich, each embarking on their own dangerous path toward survival, freedom, and ultimately each other. Based on the author's own family and anchored in historical facts, this story celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the strength of war children. The novel will be released on March 15, 2017. Editorial Review '...a five-star spite of the time and the ambient war which Lilly and her family must survive, the story is not gruesome, but rather, it is a statement about the depth and strength of the human soul, and ultimately, really, of the love that drives people on in spite of all the reasons not to love. Highly recommended.' -International Writers Inspiring Change (IWIC) About the Author Annette Oppenlander is a historical novelist who weaves past events, people and stories into a rich tapestry. When she isn't in front of her computer, she shares her knowledge through writing workshops and indulges her old mutt, Mocha. In her spare time she travels around the U.S. and Europe to discover amazing histories. The mother of three 'former' teens, Annette lives with her husband in Bloomington, Ind. where she is also treasurer of the Writers Guild.

BWW Review: RTW's Surreal THE VIOLET HOUR Subtly Colors The Future
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Apr 21, 2017

Violet--The color and time of day named in T.S. Eliot's 1922 epic poem The Waste Land. This color permeates Renaissance Theaterworks (RTW) season ending production figuratively and literally in the Studio Theatre titled The Violet Hour. Directed by Artistic Director Suzan Fete, the comedy infused with a surrealist happening sets a scene in 1919, a few years after World War I and before the Great Depression. The story tantalizes audiences with the question that is prophecy, knowing the future, a gift or a curse? Richard Greenberg's 2003 Broadway play explores this dilemma and models the period's hope and optimism after "a war to end all wars," on characters referencing Zelda and Scott Fitzgerald and chanteuse Josephine Baker. All celebrities who reached a zenith in their careers, and then ended their lives in some despair. When the audience sits in the theater watching from the 2017 perspective, what do they make of these questions, lives and future? (more...)

Diane O'Connell Announces Guided Novel Writing Retreat
by BWW News Desk - Apr 12, 2017

Unveiling the secrets that led to her guiding her author-clients to become bestselling authors, Diane O'Connell is inviting writers of all levels to join her on a Guided Novel Writing Retreat. This upcoming retreat will mark the fourth time Diane is sharing her insider expertise on writing a bestseller novel, with each hand-picked attendant receiving personalized, one-on-one coaching, along with group development activities, all in the breathtaking Berkshire Mountains. Diane O'Connell, an author and former Random House editor with over 25+ years of experience, wrote her award-winning book for new authors, The Novel-Maker's Handbook: the no-nonsense guide to crafting a marketable story, while on a writing retreat herself; this experience led her to develop the kind of experience she finds authors need to make leaps instead of strides. 'For years, I've been guiding first-time authors to develop stories that will resonate with readers and find a home in the publishing marketplace,' says O'Connell. 'I developed this retreat as a way to teach writers these successful techniques, with the goal of accelerating their progress. I've had attendants with as little as an idea or an outline, to an entire Manuscript, who have benefited immensely from this experience.' Writers are often depicted as living the life of a recluse; Diane has pushed against this stereotype, finding that her author-clients work faster and better when alongside other like-minded authors. 'It's the simple rule of work ethics; we tend to work harder when we have companions with whom to share our experience.' Situated in the Berkshire Mountains, the historic Kemble Inn has partnered with O'Connell to bring the perfect atmosphere that encourages authors to channel their creative spirit. 'When searching for the perfect place to write my last book I came across the Kemble Inn,' notes O'Connell. 'Being there infused me with such rich creative energy; my past attendees have confirmed that this is a place where writers thrive.' Past attendee Carolyn Kay Brancato agrees: 'This retreat helped me jumpstart my next novel and I can honestly say that Diane has changed my life and helped me to get closer to my dream of being a published fiction author.' Registration is still open for the Novel Writing Retreat, with only a few spots remaining. Get more details and find out if the retreat is right for you by visiting (more...)
