BWW Reviews: CPH Examines Greed, Ambition and Misguided Principles in THE LITTLE FOXES
by Roy Berko - Sep 22, 2014

Lillian Hellman, author of 'The Little Foxes,' which is now in production at the Cleveland Playhouse, was a rebel with many causes. An independent woman in an era before the women's rights and liberation movements, she had strong political and societal opinions. Because of her liberal affiliations she was blacklisted by the House Un-American Activities Committee. She was 'a smoker, a drinker, a lover, and a fighter, who took stands against and placed a negative spotlight on greed, ambition and misguided principles.' She was an advocate for the downtrodden. These principles are at the foundation of 'The Little Foxes.' (more...)

Patrick Brown Releases TOSSED OFF THE EDGE
by BWW News Desk - Sep 17, 2014

The soap opera known as The Edge of Conflict has been keeping viewers tuned in every afternoon since 1970. The show was centered on the exploits and troubles of the very rich Knight Family of Hillvale. At the heart of this long-running drama is Regina, played by soap diva Sheila Wozniak, who grew from troubled teen to matriarch over the decades. Wozniak has won many awards, and once had an enormous fan base. However, as times have changed and soap opera audiences have dwindled, Wozniak found that her influence with the network and the international soap company Poplar & Grindle had waned just like her fan base. Refusing to change along with the show's producers, she finds that she has been fired. There will be no more Regina, and to make her understand that they no longer want her, her televised funeral turns out to be an on-air cremation. There was no way for her to escape the flames. With very little acting experience outside of her four-decade role, Sheila Wozniak is unsure what to do next until a publishing house comes calling and asks her to write her memoirs. She is a drinker not a writer; so she hires her favorite former head writer from The Edge of Conflict to ghost write her autobiography. The fun ensues almost immediately as Ms. Wozniak, ever the dramatic diva, goes into detail about her past. Due to the many years of playing the same character and being a fan of TV herself, she tells her story, leaving the reader entertained but wondering if she really was married to a successful Madison Avenue advertising agent (Bewitched) followed by a marriage to a successful California architect with three sons (The Brady Bunch) or went on a spiritual pilgrimage to Puerto Rico (The Flying Nun). From the book: 'Regina Knight Harrison Donavan Taylor Donavan McDonald McDonald Woodward Merriweather Todd's funeral was held on channel seven at 1:00 p.m. local time in every time zone across the country. If you had ever watched daytime TV between 1970 until her demise, you couldn't have missed her. She was blond and dramatic, and she had been shot, paralyzed, kidnapped, raped and tortured numerous times. On her better days, she had given or received a number of internal organs, suffered heart attacks and endured a radical mastectomy... In spite of all the difficulties, Regina maintained a strong faith in the power of love. She was a one-man woman in spite of having been married nine times to seven different husbands who got younger and younger as Regina aged.' For readers who thrive on an actor's conflicts with ungrateful children, they won't be disappointed since Miss Wozniak is under the impression that Mommie Dearest was intended to be a guide to raising children. 'Tossed Off the Edge' is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Information: Tossed Off the Edge Patrick Brown Published: August 2014 ISBN: 978-1495359873 ASIN: B00N43OHFE Pages: 196 Genre: Fiction/Humor About the Author: Patrick Brown skewered the religious right in his first book 'Moral Ambiguity' and he continues to laugh with (and at) the world around him. 'Tossed Off the Edge' is his second 'faux biography,' as he calls them, and his subject is a beloved soap star who's just been fired from her show after 40 years. Trained as a musician, Brown was born into a family of storytellers, and he comes by this talent naturally. He discovered his love of writing at an early age, starting with his first creative writing class at the age of nine. He also has a great sense of humor, and has appeared on stage as a standup comedian in the Los Angeles area, including the world-famous Comedy Store on Sunset Blvd. 'When it comes to writing stories, I love to make things up, and I love to make people laugh,' he says. 'There is so much going on in the world today, and if we can pause for a few moments to find the humor-there is humor everywhere-our days are so much better. We deserve a great laugh!'

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! To participate in the contest entrants should go to bit.ly/1z2HoB0 (more...)
