Michael J. Gajda Releases THE ANNOUNCEMENT
by BWW News Desk - Mar 28, 2014

In his new book, 'The Announcement,' author Michael J. Gajda creatively explores and presents a challenge to today's spiritual hunger...a hunger which persists in an increasingly disconnected world. This is a powerfully written work...a spiritual, psychological, and social manifesto channeled through a fictional second person voice which takes a hard honest look at (and to) a soft and often dishonest planet that is slipping away from itself, a voice which expects much from its listeners...yet is unafraid to expose and confront the far-reaching consequences if its words are ignored.

SAINT NELLIE by Odal Madsen is Available Now
by BWW News Desk - Apr 8, 2014

Nashville Author Debuts Suspense Novel with Controversial Themes. The following is an excerpt from the book: 'I'm sure you've heard folks are afraid of what they don't understand.' Nellie's stare shifts and focuses on Mia's eyes. Mia's stomach tightens. Her mouth is dry. She swabs with the cloth aimlessly, but the one-eyed gaze pierces her like an ice pick in her stomach. Nellie's voice shifts into low gear. 'But sometimes they just know the devil when they see him.' Local business executive and author Odal Madsen debuted his novel 'Saint Nellie' (280 pp., ebook, $3.99)on March 31, 2014. Madsen has spent the past four years working on the novel while staying active in Nashville's business scene, which he deems 'an exhilarating challenge.' The novel blends real world social issues with the allure of gritty black magic to create a compelling tale that will challenge readers' perceptions while thrilling them with its macabre narrative. 'It's been a pleasure to conjure these characters,' Madsen says, 'Each of them is representative of interesting personalities I've come across in Nashville, and I feel like they play off of each other in a way that creates a tense, sometimes chilling atmosphere.' 'Saint Nellie' centers around Mia Taylor, a fifteen year-old spending a stifling summer in Blackwell, Tennessee, trying her best to avoid standing out in a place where old ideas still have deep roots. However, what gnaws at the heart of Blackwell, Tennessee isn't just a community struggling to escape a history of racial violence, but something equally destructive, otherworldly, and older than time immemorial. Something the residents speak of in hushed tones and with furtive glances. Tales of the town's one-eyed 'witch,' Nellie McGruder, bubble at the pit of the town's consciousness, and Rumors of the dark power wielded by the reclusive woman run rampant. Now, tasked with reaching out to Nellie McGruder, Mia and her mother are forced to look deeply into the soul of Blackwell, and what they find will utterly terrify them. 'Saint Nellie' is available on Amazon's Kindle Store now. (more...)
