Class Act Books Releases First Non-Fiction, DOING TIME IN HELL
by BWW News Desk - Mar 3, 2014

Class Act Books announces the release of 'Doing Time in Hell' by J. Bodie as the first entry in its new non-fiction line. Bodie McIlvane never wanted to be a prison guard. He just applied because his father-in-law talked him into it, saying it was safer than working as a Louisiana oil rig wildcatter. For the next twelve years, he stayed a guard at the Nebraska State Penitentiary. His reminiscences of his training, as well as observation of the men in his custody and the prison system for that mid-Western state led him to realize both guards and inmates are 'doing time,' but the guards are doing it on the installment plan. Mr. Bodie passed away shortly after finishing this Manuscript. Class Act Books author Toni V. Sweeney was asked by his widow to assist in editing and seeing to its submission for publication. Under its new ownership guidelines, Class Act Books has opened its doors to genres other than romance, and now includes mysteries, horror, science fiction, Westerns, and non-fiction stories, such as Bodie's memoir, in its lists.

Sweazy-Kulju Releases BODIE and GROG WARS
by BWW News Desk - Mar 17, 2014

Already an award-winning Manuscript (1st place winner, Writers Type International, March 2013), Sweazy-Kulju's third novel, 'Grog Wars,' is a stand-alone Part I of a 2-Part epic, which entered production last week. The author has begun the sequel to 'Grog Wars,' which follows a depressed young German brewer as he crosses the deadly Atlantic in 1849, and travels the Oregon Trail during the bloodiest period in its history, only to land in Portland, Oregon, 'Shanghai capital,' and the most dangerous place on earth. The Pacific City author and Tate Publishing are working to team up the release of 'Grog Wars' with one or more of Oregon's favorite craft breweries, for a fall releaseperhaps just in time for Oktoberfest. Stay tuned for more on this. In the meantime, Sweazy-Kulju is celebrating her newest, nationwide release, 'BODIE,' by giving away 10 free signed copies on March 18 and 19, on www.goodreads.com. BODIE is a historical fiction adventure that masquerades as a century-old love story (thwarted), a murder mystery one hundred years standing, and a political conspiracy that transcends time. Oh and there's a creepy measure of the paranormal, toothe story is Sweazy-Kulju's own. In fact, the decomposing building on the book's cover is the Swazey Hotel-home to ancestors of the author, according to one of those genealogy websites. Sweazy-Kulju entertains! Unlike the milk-toast action or anemic love stories put forth by book-a-year celebrity novelists, Sweazy-Kulju grants readers the ancient art of storytelling combined with classic Greek tragedy and a flair for the West. The result is original, Oregon-grown stories, quite unlike the cookie-cutter plots many readers have come to accept. 'I loved this book like I have not loved a book in a long time,' reads an Amazon.com 5-star review. And that, right there, is the author's reward. Ironically, it takes her a hundred-thousand words to accomplish what you, the reader, can do in just one word: Escape. Readers thirsting for 'Grog Wars,' might slake it for a time with a softcover or download copy of Sweazy-Kulju's debut novel, 'the thing with feathers,' or her newest release, 'BODIE.' http://www.Facebook.com/Anne.Kulju http://Twitter.com/AnneSweazyKulju (more...)
