Chris Birdy Releases "The Girl in Black Pajamas"
by BWW News Desk - Aug 22, 2014

Chris Birdy is proud to announce the release of her novel, 'The Girl in Black Pajamas.' The intriguing book video trailer for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' was revealed today on DGT Book Promotion news. In addition, Birdy shared her insights on the inspiration for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas.' 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is the second novel in the Pajama series. The mystery fiction novel takes the reader on adventure through an attempted murder, hacking schemes, a man fearing the possibility of prison, family issues and more. The official book video trailer for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' can be viewed on YouTube. About The Book R&B Investigations is under attack. Their employee is shot in the back as he enters the building, and a hacker is trying to compromise their secure network. While the Boston police investigate the shooting, Bogie McGruder needs to find the culprit who is trying to put them out of business. Bogie and his partner Rose Jones can't disclose their internet problems to the cops since Bogie is a hacker himself. Bogie McGruder returns to Boston with his four- year-old daughter Isabella. He joins up with Rose Jones' uncle Walter who is fresh for Lompoc Prison. Bogie and Walter strengthen their firewalls while they try to determine who is behind the invasion. As the R&B team hones in on the culprit, they uncover several murders and discover a plot to wipe out the financial institutions in Boston. While Bogie is in Boston, his extended family in Palm Beach becomes enmeshed in a sex scandal that threatens to ruin lives and careers in the Palm Beach Sheriff Office. Feeling like a wishbone about to snap, Bogie tries to handle problems in both cities while Isabella continues her quest for someone to teach her the Five-Point-Palm-Exploding-Heart technique as seen in Kill Bill Volume 2. This tale of murder, revenge and greed takes the reader on a whirlwind trip from Boston to Palm Beach and back. Buckle your seatbelt. Praise for 'The Girl in Black Pajamas': 'This was the most exciting book I've read in a long time. The action starts on page 1 and never stops.'- A reader review About The Author Chris Birdy is the author of the Pajama series. 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is the second book in the series. Birdy was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. After graduating from high school, she did a four year stint in the Middle East. When Birdy returned to the States, she settled down in the Boston area and became a true Bostonian by collecting college degrees while raising her family. For more than twenty years, Birdy did investigative work for Boston law firms. Being an avid mystery fan made her either fearless or foolhardy while working in rough neighborhoods and housing projects. Birdy knows how it feels to have a gun stuck to the back of her head and that was in a courtroom. She knows how it feels to have an angry client walk in her office and point a small gun at her saying, 'I want my money!' That was when the author opened her desk drawer, removed a large gun and drew back the slide while aiming it at him. 'Have a seat!' she said. Birdy states 'There is no substitute for experience.' The author lives outside of Boston with her husband and also resides in Palm Beach where they escape to hide from the snow. 'The Girl in Black Pajamas' is published by Createspace and is available online at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. To learn more about Chris Birdy and The Girl in Black Pajamas, visit (more...)

Florida Author Releases New Historical/Religious Fiction Novel – 'The Reluctant General'
by BWW News Desk - Aug 17, 2014

Their world was falling apart. They had come to the land of the Canaanites to find a home where they could live in peace after years of slavery in Egypt. But, now the ancient Israelites faced opposition and persecution from a cruel and vicious king named Jabin and his cold-hearted commander of the army, Cisera. The persecution and hellacious taxation policies continued for over twenty years until a woman named Deborah and her reluctant hero led a rag-tag group of men to the rescue! The story of Deborah and Barak from the biblical book of Judges describes amazing courage and fortitude beyond modern comprehension. In this modern retelling of the old story, Herb Sennett brings to life the people of 1150 BC in such a way that their hopes, dreams, struggles, pain, and suffering help us face our own problems in the light of God's willingness to help his people whenever they are threatened with extinction. The Jewish people of that day knew little of warfare and tactics, but they were able to defeat the most powerful army of the day and then conquer the most heavily defended city in the area. This novel tells of their struggle to live free of oppression and fear through their faith in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. "The Reluctant General" is available in print and ebook format. Book Information: The Reluctant General By Herb Sennett Publisher: WestBow Press ISBN: 978-1490818078 ASIN: B00I9YUHDO Published: January 2014 Pages: 250 Genre: Historical Fiction, Religious Fiction About The Author: Herb Sennett has spent the last thirty years as a college professor (Palm Beach Atlantic College, Louisiana College, Southeastern University, and currently at Broward College and Palm Beach State College). He was trained in speech and drama education (B.S.E.) at Arkansas State University and holds master's degrees in speech (M.A., University of Memphis) and theater (M.F.A., Florida Atlantic University) as well as a doctorate (Ph.D.) in theater awarded by the Louisiana State University. He also holds a masters degree (M.Div., Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) and a doctorate (D.Min., Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary) in religious studies. Herb has produced, directed, and/or written three dozen stage plays and eleven short films. He is the author of two books dealing with theater history. He served six years in the pastoral ministry and twenty-one years as a chaplain in the US Army Reserves, retiring as a lieutenant colonel. In 2010, Herb decided to bring his years of research, training, and ingenuity to a new creative effort: writing novels that are historically accurate as well as compelling and exciting to read. Herb believes that some of the greatest stories ever written are to be found in the pages of The Holy Bible as well as in the myths of ancient Greece; and it is these stories he wishes to share in a new and exciting way for the modern world. Herb writes, teaches, and lives in South Florida with his wife of more than forty-five years. They have two children and one grandson.
