SATISFYING BABYGIRL Wins New Apple Book Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing
by BWW News Desk - Sep 26, 2016

'Satisfying Babygirl: Her Babygirl Book 1' by Kat Kylie chosen as Medalist Winner in the Erotica category of the 2015 New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing. Book Synopsis Kat grew up sheltered in the midwest, opting to bury her face in books while her friends explored other avenues of entertainment. As the desire continued to grow and her body began to change, the pleasures that Kat had been denying herself all those years eventually boiled over. After graduation Kat moved to the west coast in an attempt to find her true self. A small town girl from the midwest, now overwhelmed in the big city, she soon realized how much she'd missed as a teenager. A broke freshman in college, completely out of her depths, she finds herself scrolling through the darker side of the internet where she happens upon Jazz, a more than willing mentor for Kat's coming of age. Their growing friendship turns romantic, stirring feelings in Kat that had long since been forgotten. It isn't long before Jazz takes Kat under her wing and unlocks the forbidden door to deviance. Where will Jazz lead Kat and how far is she willing to go to find the limits of her desire? Read SATISFYING BABYGIRL to find out! About the Author Kat Kylie is an award winning author of literary erotica, comedic author and human resources director. She's not the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. She's the Kat that lives vicariously through the Kat that resides within the Babygirl Series. In reality, she's your average, run-of-the-mill, boring, everyday, mostly single, professional woman. In 2012, she began reading erotic women's fiction when the craze hit. She admits it was fun at first, but ultimately unsatisfying. 'I enjoyed the storyline that allowed me to feel as though I wasn't just thumbing through porn, but the sexual aspect was often too mundane to take me to the places I wanted to go. There seemed to be a vast divide between acceptable and Taboo. It was either vanilla... or involved lactating step-mothers and/or tentacled creatures from the planet GnipGnop.' That's when Kat decided to develop the 'Her Babygirl' series. About The New Apple Book Awards The Annual New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing was established to honor the creative achievements of the unsung books fighting for their place within the digital publishing world. Any English language book published within the last three years, currently available for sale by an independent author or small press that met the Awards' guidelines was eligible for entry. One book was chosen in each category as the Medalist Winner receiving the highest honors. In addition, the judges were permitted to choose up to three Official Selections for category distinction.

BWW Review: MEASURE OF A MAN Breaks Down the Barriers at New Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 20, 2016

The parameters for what is deemed Taboo in contemporary culture, especially Fringe culture, have vastly changed in recent years from topics deemed too controversial to topics deemed too personal. Gavin Roach's one-man mastery of the personal, entitled Measure of a Man, definitely broaches and breaches Taboos of homosexual stereotyping, male sexuality and the trappings of masculinity. At moments shocking, hilarious, and provocative, Roach entwines traditions of storytelling, incorporating mime, cabaret and technical recourse to tell his story of a sex life full of misgivings and misinterpretations of what makes a man in the bedroom.

BWW Blog: Simona Berman - Men Can Have Periods, Too
by Guest Blogger: HAT Ensemble - Sep 19, 2016

"What do you mean when you say 'men can have periods, too'? How is that possible?!" As the words came out of my mouth, suddenly everything turned to slow motion as my shoulders crept up to whisper in my ear: "You  ignorant fool.  You will be kicked out of here for sure for that insulting remark." Here being the rehearsal room that Honest Accomplice Theatre (HAT) was awarded through a space grant by the Drama League for the amazing work they do.  I was thrilled when I was told that I would be a member of the company, though now it feels more like a family. I was invited to be apart of their latest show ReConfigured, a show about the body on many diverse levels. My body had been my enemy for more than 20 years: eating disorders, exercise binging, body dysmorphia, sexual deviance, drugs, the this diet, the that diet, the everything in between diet (rinse and repeat).  Part of the healing for me has been in sharing my stories in the hopes that it may shine a light on someone else's battles. This production seemed perfect for me. And we would also be bringing awareness to the trans community's experience of the body. Bonus!  But at the time of the seemingly ignorant remark I made in the rehearsal room, I was brand spankin' new and not as educated on the trans community nor the many facets of gender identity yet as I thought.  Being a bisexual and a supporter of the LGBTQ community, I thought  I was pretty well informed, at least on those topics. I would come to find out through many incredible devising sessions with HAT that I had a LOT more to learn.  More so, just how important it was for me as a cis woman-someone who identifies with the gender they were assigned at birth-to spread this knowledge.  This helps to alleviate the trans community as being the sole educators all the time.  (more...)

'Kleptomania: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway?' is Released
by BWW News Desk - Sep 19, 2016

Monetary tithing has been taught as undisputed fact for centuries. Kleptomaniac Who's Really Robbing God Anyway challenges that assumption and puts many of the modern tithe teachings to the test of scripture. This book examines the word tithe from the original Hebrew language and presents the orthodox meaning of the term based on culture, language and the literature of the Hebrew people. For church-goers who are tired of being told they rob God of tithes and offerings every Saturday and Sunday, and that God requires a tenth of their income until death, the new book opens the biblical scroll and shines a light on the truth of Scripture by debunking centuries-old tithe doctrines, which say a tithe is ten percent of a person's income. Dr. Frank Chase Jr. explains in his new book released August 14th why many church-goers are not the ones who really rob God. But exposes who the real God robbers are in this shocking tithe manifesto. The book dissects the word tithe and places it back in its original scriptural context and explains its orthodox meaning. The real story of the book is that ten percent of a person's income does not represent a biblical tithe. The biblical tithe has always been food. A monetary tithe of ten percent represents a tax for religious purposes. Respected author and theologian Dr. Russell Earl Kelly remarked in his book, Should the Church Teach Tithing that 'true biblical tithing is narrowly limited to food and clean animal from land inheritance. Also, true biblical tithing was never extended to crafts, trades, and fish. Since Jesus was never a farmer, nor headman, he was not among those required to tithe.' Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway is an educational book that tackles a religious Taboo subject such as tithing and adds more information to an under-saturated subject in the book world concerning tithing. The book is a scholastic work and should be read by anyone who has felt skepticism about the truth and accuracy of the modern tithe system. Editorial Review A book review by Reader's Favorite states, 'Kleptomania: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway? The untwisted truth about the centuries-old tithes and offering deception by Dr. Frank Chase Jr, Th.D fills a narrow but very real niche in a the area of biblically derived lessons and advice on the subject of tithes and offerings. I would have thought most Christians would research this topic themselves if it were very important to them, but to have all the references in one book, along with sound commentary and advice from a biblical scholar, certainly makes is easier. Dr. Fran Chase Jr. describes his own evolution of ideas about tithing and I must say we went through many of the same phases in pretty much the same order. I stopped evolving while Frank Chase Jr. went on to write this book that helps other Christians who have the same questions he had. Christianity at is best. 'Kleptomaniac: Who's Really Robbing God Anyway? may have more biblical quotes and references to tithing and money in general that any book I have every read, save of course, the Bible itself. It is written in a very smooth and articulate style that I'm guessing will be understandable to most people, but at the same time Dr. Frank Chase Jr's education and vocabulary are evident on every page. As is his faith and his desire to help. From Abraham to Paul, Frank Chase Jr, delves in the origin, the definition, the application, and even the abuse of the custom of tithing. It is an interesting and sometimes colorful history and one Christians should certainly be more aware of. This book will help them.' You can find the book on any online book retailers, including the publisher Book Baby. (more...)

BWW Blog: Having A Candid Conversation About The Body Through Devised Theatre by Seth Day
by Guest Blogger: HAT Ensemble - Sep 16, 2016

Whenever I have the bravery to venture into Times Square, I look around at the Advertisements bombarding me and I wonder to myself if this is really 2016. I find myself surrounded by depictions of thin, tall, and typically white models that all seem as though they came out of a cookie cutter mold. And one thing is blaringly obvious: none of these people look like me. In fact, none of these people look like anyone I know. It's astounding to me that in 2016 this is still a reality. (more...)

BWW Review: BAD APPLES at ACT Shocks, Disturbs, Potentially Offends, and Kills It!
by Jay Irwin - Sep 10, 2016

Are there any Taboo subjects for musicals anymore? I mean we've had shows about serial killers and assassins, drug addicts and prisoners, demons and super powered psychotic teens, and even oversexed puppets. So I don't know why anyone should be surprised by the new musical at ACT in conjunction with ArtsWest and Circle X Theatre Co., 'Bad Apples' which takes a look at one of our countries most disgraceful moments, the Abu Ghraib prison scandal. This in your face rock musical will definitely not be everyone's cup of tea and especially not for the kids. But if you can get past all the language, sex, and horrific images then what you're left with is a killer show that looks at how easily people in power can justify appalling acts. (more...)

BWW Review: 'TIS PITY SHE'S A WHORE, Tristan Bates Theatre Theatre, 29 August 2016
by Liz Cearns - Aug 30, 2016

Lazarus Theatre Company's 'Tis Pity She's a Whore has opened at Soho's Tristan Bates Theatre. This production merges John Ford's gory and uncomfortable 17th century classic with the current trend for immersive theatre - once in the auditorium, audience members are greeted by a butler, who proffers a tray of wine. Even the traverse format of the staging, with a large table placed centre stage, seems to invite the audience to take part in this notoriously Taboo drama. (more...)
