Audio-Book 'A Sometimes Strange Story' by Uri Norwich is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 9, 2017

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you took a different turn at some point in your life? If a nineteen-year-old man listened to his instincts and took that different turn in Vienna, his entire life would have changed... A sequence of random encounters leads to unexpected events in his life. He finds himself in the foreign country on the other side of the globe. He doesn't know anything about his adoptive land, he is all alone. Within a few short weeks, the man finds a job, a new home, a university to go to, and even a girl. All - without speaking the language. 'If I told my college buddies back in Russia that I slept with an American girl, they would've thought I was out of my mind,' were his thoughts, studying his naked friend peacefully sprawled on the bed next to him. The pace of his life intensifies with every new encounter, until one day, the young man finds himself transplanted from a rural Connecticut town to the Italian city of Milan. He must adapt to yet another country. He is thrown in the midst of other people's lives, and becoming a part of it. A wise scholar once said, 'There is a plan for each one of us outside of our control. From the moment we are born, we are set on our own predetermined road. Anything we would do could help or interfere. It may delay the passage, but we would never stray off its course. We would always come back and move along again.' The author lived through and experienced firsthand situations and places reflected in the novel. Currently, the author lives in a New York City Suburb.

by BWW News Desk - Feb 3, 2017

Ki-Chan: Demon Hunter is a new series of books, merchandise and comics from independent publisher Koriander. The first book in the series is a 2016 NaNoWriMo winner.

After watching her parents being murdered by demons, this yellow-capped kid suffers from PTSD, aggravating her budding super powers. But after she comes across a rag-tag group of college kids from Illinois who also have super powers, Ki-Chan finds herself in the fight of her life.
