Munched Kitty Publications Announces DebutMunched Kitty Publications Announces Debut
by BWW News Desk - Sep 28, 2014

'It's exciting!' Michele Barszcz can hardly contain her excitement. 'I have always loved reading, and now I'm actually publishing books that I like. It's a lot of hard work, but I love it.' So says the founder of the latest small publishing house to hit the markets, with unbound enthusiasm. Once upon a time, such a fairy tale would have been impossible, as giant publishing conglomerates fortified their castles with alligator-filled moats and high walls that were virtually impenetrable. Back then, if Michele had been really lucky, she might have gotten a job plowing through 'slush piles' of unsolicited submissions for a few years to prove herself worthy of a higher position, but she would most likely have remained a cog in the publishing house bureaucracy forever. With the rise of computers, advancements in printing, and numerous companies offering direct marketing services, however, small entrepreneurs like Michele can turn their publishing dreams into reality. It was just as difficult for authors, if not worse, in the old days. After possibly spending an eternity writing, editing, proofreading and polishing a cherished masterpiece, authors often languished for years trying to claw their way through the fortress barriers, often spending months to find an agent and even longer to convince a mega-house to begrudgingly deign to read their Manuscript. Since first-time submissions from unknown authors are rarely accepted on the first try, the cycle of submission-rejection-submission tends to repeat itself over and over. Acclaimed author John Grisham was one of those rejected repeatedly. Before Harry Potter became a worldwide sensation and a series of blockbuster movies, more than a dozen publishers rejected the book and its unknown author. At the time, they all said, 'J.K. Rowling? Who is that?' Now those publishers all know who she is, but only long after passing on the chance to cash in by publishing her works. The marriage of technology and creativity has proven to be a heavenly union for small publishers and authors alike. Many authors have made fortunes self-publishing after others rejected their work, but some things remain constant. A book still must be good to sell, no matter who publishes it. And a golden opportunity doesn't guarantee a golden outcome. The old moat and drawbridge were there for a reason. Without them, there is nothing to keep the barbarian hoards from storming the castle, and the market is now filled with substandard, poorly written garbage published out of some yokel's basement, making it harder for a true masterpiece to rise above the refuse. Michele sees it this way, 'Even with all the technology, it's still critical to find the right books to publish. Books that people will want to buy.' So what can readers expect from Munched Kitty? If the house's first two books are any indication, quite a variety. The first book scheduled for publication is "Judging Professional MMA," by Mixed Martial Arts judge, Glenn Trowbridge. The following act is a comedy horror love story by veteran Joseph Tatner called, "Floyd and Mikki: Zombie Hunters." Glenn has never written a book before, while Joseph has made his living as a writer for more than 20 years. Michele sees a solid market for both books, and that is what drives her decisions on what to publish. Despite the obvious goal of making money, Michele isn't greedy about it. In fact, she is on a mission to keep books affordable. '$19.95 for a paperback is ridiculous, not matter how good it is,' she opines. 'With the cost of everything going up, people want to escape their troubles in a good book. My goal is to keep it affordable for them. If we can sell books at a lower price, we will make about the same money, but we'll reach more people and build brand loyalty. You can't put a price on that.' Just who is the Munched Kitty in the logo? Munch is a happy survivor. She was abandoned and then rescued off the streets of Las Vegas. Her mangled left ear and missing half of a right fang weren't the only things munched when she showed up. The frail feline had a large patch of skin missing from the back of her neck. Fortunately, tender loving care by her adopted family brought her back to full health. 'I couldn't think of a catchy publishing name that wasn't taken. Then I decided to name the company after Munch. After all, she's living proof that you can succeed against all odds.' No doubt Michele will succeed as well, one way or the other. Munched Kitty Publications (mkpubs.com) is a little publishing house with big ambitions and grand hopes. (more...)

Michelle Williams to Publish New Children's Book About BullyingMichelle Williams to Publish New Children's Book About Bullying
by BWW News Desk - Sep 23, 2014

Local author Michelle Williams recently teamed up with Tate Publishing to begin the publication process of her new book My Name is Ruth. A poignant book based on Williams' life experiences, the author shares how she was delivered from her circumstances and how she can help other women come to their place of salvation. 'As a child, I faced life changing circumstances that would mold, and shape my way of thinking. It was much distorted. Not understanding how to deal with rejection, it caused me to go into a cocoon; and I was not able to express my thoughts and feelings. I didn't know how to communicate... My dad loved me, this I know, but his choices in his childhood were also taken to some point. He was not a good communicator. So I pretty much did what I was told,' shared Williams. The Tate Publishing acquisitions editor that signed the book, Stacy Baker, was moved by Williams words and concept when reading the Manuscript, sharing 'From a life of brokenness, Author Michele Williams speaks from her heart in her new book. She knows what it is like to make mistakes that leave an impact. In the midst of life's valleys, she knows that God can 'turn your midnight into day' as she so eloquently phrases it. He want to take those mistakes, that sin, and with his love, show you how you can rise up from your brokenness.' When asked about her inspiration to write the book, Williams shared that 'not having the support I needed when going through [her own] trials... put [her] in a place of isolation.' Working to help others overcome the shame and guilt that she herself struggled with, Williams wrote the book to encourage others, using inspiration from the people with which she was able to 'share [her] heart and not be condemned.' Williams believes that endurance is one of they key qualities that ensured her transformation, stating 'I refused to quit. The more the trials, the more motivated I became.' She hopes to share the same transforming motivation and endurance with her readers. 'Hopefully after people read this book they will be encouraged and fight to change... that they get an understanding of who God created them to be and that change is possible.' Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book will be available upon its release through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/bookstore, or by visiting barnesandnoble.com or amazon.com. Williams was raised in church, but didn't fully understand what it meant to have a relationship with Christ until adulthood. She is a mother of two, including one special needs child and son in his thirties. She also has one grandchild.

'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.

The 160 page illustrated story expresses Trina's vision of hope and a world of cooperation. For the first time, Hope for the Flowers will be available in ebook form, allowing more readers to share in the story of its caterpillar heroes, Stripe and Yellow. 'I am thrilled Stripe and Yellow can reach more millions. Our world needs their message. If enough dare 'risk for a butterfly' and fly, we can carry the healing pollen of peace and hope with justice to flowers everywhere,' says Trina on her decision to publish digitally. 'A digital version is not held back by the physical limits of print and can help Hope further cross all boundaries.' The book tells the inspiring story of a young caterpillar struggling to find his way in a self made pillar of caterpillars that defines his society's competitive nature. Trina conceived of Hope and illustrated and created the book after being evacuated from Egypt during the Six-Day War in 1967. Trina personally oversaw the conversion of the original book into the digital format, illustrating and adapting every page to render the best experience across all the major devices.

After building up its art center, Trina went to Akhmim, Egypt to help develop a women's embroidery cooperative. During the 1967 Six-Day War, she was evacuated to the International Grail Center in Paris, where in the midst of the revolutionary 60's, she rediscovered the Manuscript titled 'Hope' she had written two years earlier. Returning to the US in 1969 Trina signed a contract for 'Hope' with Paulist Press.

Serendipity Literary Agency and She Writes Press Announce Their First Memoir Discovery CompetitionSerendipity 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!

BWW Recap:  CURTAIN: POIROT'S LAST CASE Packs a PunchBWW 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.

by BWW News Desk - Aug 23, 2014

Michaela Carter's debut novel, Further Out Than You Thought (just published by HarperCollins), began as a memoir. Carter's agent at the time read the completed Manuscript, and suggested that writing a novel would be the best way for Carter to distill the story. 'It worked,' said Carter, who is the head buyer and co-owner of Peregrine Book Company in Prescott, Ariz. 'The facts, in a way, obscured the story. I found the truth by fictionalizing it.' (more...)
