Author Owen Thomas and OTF Literary Releases New Literary Fiction Novel – 'The Lion Trees'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 7, 2014

What happens when you get the life you aim for and it hurts like hell? The Johns family is unraveling. Hollis, a retired Ohio banker, isolates himself in esoteric hobbies and a dangerous flirtation with a colleague's daughter. Susan, his wife of forty years, risks everything for a Second Chance at who she might have become. David, their eldest, thrashes to stay afloat as his teaching career capsizes in a storm of accusations involving a missing student and the legacy of Christopher Columbus. And young Tilly, the black sheep, having traded literary promise for an improbable career as a Hollywood starlet, struggles to define herself amid salacious scandal, the demands of a powerful director, and the judgments of an uncompromising writer. By turns comical and poignant, the Johns family is tumbling toward the discovery that sometimes you have to let go of your identity to find out who you are. Recent Praise for The Lion Trees: '[A] cerebral page turner...a powerful and promising debut.'-Kirkus Reviews '[Four Stars]...

BWW Reviews: World Premiere THE FACE IN THE REEDS Proves Everyone Needs and Deserves a Second Chance
by Shari Barrett - Sep 1, 2014

The World Premiere of THE FACE IN THE REEDS by Robin Uriel Russin, directed by Sarah Figoten Wilson at Santa Monica's The Ruskin Group, centers on a dysfunctional family gathering to celebrate Passover, the Jewish holiday celebrating freedom. As the meshuge meshugas (crazy madness) plays out, the evening's seder turns into quarrels about the meaning of freedom, the value of life, and the shadow of death, which symbolically "passes over" the house. During the course of the evening, conflicts emerge about the merit of faith over conversion, the truth in religion, and the nature of parental responsibility. This night is different from all other nights and of course, this being a Jewish family, it is also a comedy. We're all going to die--but first, you should eat. (more...)

New Western Fiction Series by Colby Van Wagoner is Released
by BWW News Desk - Aug 15, 2014

Author Colby Van Wagoner releases an action packed, western, book series called 'The Life of Zeke Slade.' The first book is titled, 'Ranger' and is book one in the series. Synopsis: In this coming of age story, Zeke Slade's mother and father are killed just before the Civil War. Shattered by the event, the military seizes his land in order to prepare for the coming war between the North and the South. Zeke leaves for Texas with his father's family friend, Texas Ranger Captain Donovan Walton. In Texas, Zeke Slade grows into a deadly, and notorious, Texas Ranger. He soon meets the love of his life, Evelyn McAllister, and the two are married. Struggle and strife are constant factors Zeke Slade and the other Texas Rangers face in order to enforce the law in Fort Worth, Texas. Book two is titled 'Fever,' taking place after 'Ranger.' Synopsis: After witnessing the horrific murders of his wife and two boys, Texas Ranger Zeke Slade takes matters into his own hands. Instead of bringing his family's killers to justice, to stand trial, he makes the decision to serve his own justice, avenging the murders of his family on his own terms, breaking his oath as a Texas Ranger. The Adjutant General of the Texas Rangers gives Zeke a Second Chance and either the choice of facing prison time, or following what many others do to escape the mistakes of their past, by accepting a marshal position in a growing northern Alaskan mining town, where the past marshal was violently gunned down. In the town of Fever, Alaska, Marshal Zeke Slade is charged with enforcing the law during the gold rush. As tens of thousands of diverse prospectors arrive in the Alaskan territories, constant conflicts occur over land disputes, not only between miners, but with the native's sacred lands and with the diverse Alaskan wildlife. As the gold begins to flow from the miner's claims, outlaws and thieves run rampant through the town of Fever. Pillaging and robbing become a constant struggle, as Zeke Slade enforces the law with his style of Texas justice, along side his young and inexperienced deputies. Fever's banks, gold exchanges, bars, brothels, and supply stores attract violent criminals, as the growing population seeks its share of the gold in 'Fever.' Both 'Ranger' and 'Fever' are available in paperback and E-Book format on Amazon.com, Barnes and Noble.com, and Createspace.com. Other releases, by Author Colby Van Wagoner, can be found at ColbyVanWagoner.com. Enjoy. (more...)
