RAIN, the acclaimed Beatles concert, returns by popular demand, direct from Broadway! They look like them and they sound just like them! "The next best thing to seeing The Beatles," raves the Denver Post. All the music and vocals are performed totally live! RAIN covers The Beatles from the earliest beginnings through the psychedelic late 60s and their long-haired hippie, hard-rocking rooftop days. RAIN is a multi-media, multi-dimensional experience...a fusion of historical footage and hilarious television commercials from the 1960s lights up video screens and live cameras zoom in for close-ups. "A thrilling bit of time-warping nostalgia...Boomer Heaven!" raves The Fort Worth StarTelegram. "Uncanny! RAIN are a quartet of fine musicians in their own right...as The Beatles, they triumph!: cheers the Boston Herald. "An adoring Valentine to The Beatles," declares the Washington Post. Sing along with your family and friends to such favorites as "Let It Be," "Hey Jude," "Come Together" and "Can't Buy Me Love,: and relive Beatlemania from Ed Sullivan to Abbey Road!

BORDER RUN & OTHER STORIES by Jennifer Leeper is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 14, 2017

Barking Rain Press, a non-profit fiction publisher, today announced the paperback and eBook release of the short fiction collection 'Border Run & Other Stories' by Kansas City, Missouri author Jennifer Leeper. Author of the novel, 'Padre: The Narrowing Path,' Leeper is an award-winning fiction writer whose short fiction is included in several anthologies and publications such as 'Independent Ink Magazine,' 'Notes Magazine,' 'The Stone Hobo,' 'Poiesis,' 'Every Day Fiction,' 'Aphelion Webzine,' 'Heater Magazine,' 'Cowboy Jamboree,' 'The New Engagement,' and 'The Liguorian.' Sit back and savor this mesmerizing collection of short fiction set in multiple eras and locales. Two sisters hike a mountainside in South Korea, ascending to another level of sibling intimacy as they descend. A weary detective weathers a mid-life crisis of faith in everything that is familiar and known - including his own integrity as a man of the law. A dying grandmother tasks her grandson with distributing her massive collection of shoes, with the caveat that each pair must be matched to a suitable new owner. These fourteen stories provide tantalizing glimpses of death and its impact on those left behind, the tedious grind of day-to-day living and the promise of escape through the magical and supernatural. Though the characters in each story are encapsulated by their own unique worldview, they are a composite reflection of the overarching experience of life lived, in all times and places.
