Author Launches New Novel STREET LIGHTAuthor Launches New Novel STREET LIGHT
by BWW News Desk - Jul 9, 2015

Local author captivates with new thriller 'Street Light' ... the third book of an award-winning coming-of-age trilogy. 'Street Light' (CreateSpace, June 2015, $12.99) R.L. Herron's third book in a trilogy about growing up in the turbulent Vietnam War era, begins with Paul Barrett, a gifted writer and former Vietnam veteran, emerging from his self-imposed seclusion after the early loss of his beloved wife, to attend the wedding of two childhood friends. The first book in the series, 'Reichold Street,' (amzn.to/1fdau9u) a 2012 Readers Favorite Gold Medal Winner that presented a realistic, coming-of-age drama about growing up in those turbulent times, introduced the world to Paul and his young friends, and was a book Kirkus Reviews called 'Skillfully written and emotionally charged.' 'One Way Street,' (amzn.to/1mRW163) the historically accurate sequel to that first book, detailed Paul Barrett's own service time in the war, his subsequent reacquaintance to the normal world, and related the horrifying tale of the murderous stalker psychopath who destroyed his young marriage. In 'Street Light,' (amzn.to/1TmzsUg) the final book of the trilogy, old friends reunite and discover that not all evil is to be found in war. Some of it walks on the streets of home. Author Bio: A former advertising, public relations and marketing manager, Herron has been a Michigan resident almost his whole life, and for nearly 30 years he has lived in suburban Lake Orion. Herron's work has appeared online and in the collection Tales from The Circle and in the former monthly publication The Family.

G.W. Mullins Pens Book on Native American LegendsG.W. Mullins Pens Book on Native American Legends
by BWW News Desk - Jul 24, 2015

Native American Indian culture is known for its rich oral traditions. In many cases there were no written languages to document their histories. The tribes relied on verbal communication to share their customs, history, rituals and legends. The tribal elders used vibrant tales to pass information to the younger generations. These stories were not only related to tribal history but were meant to entertain as well as educate, while preserving their tribal culture. Each time an elder told a story, new life was breathed into it. The telling of the stories gave a revived meaning to the tribe's past and their relations to the earth and the animals they had depended on for existence. In many cases when the stories were told, they were accompanied by music. Drums and rhythm were paired with dance to create a visual record. The Hopi Indians culture was and is rich with these stories. There was a time in Hopi history that when crops were harvested, religious ceremonies had been performed, and the winter wood had been collected. It was at this time that the people broke out into dance and story-telling. It was a time of sharing a rich history. With this book, that time is now. The stories collected in this book represent some of the best to be found. Included you will find: Hopi Prayer For Peace, Creation, The Wanderings of the Bear Clan, The Snake Myth, A Journey to the Skeleton House, Korosta Katzina Song, Huruing Wuhti And The Sun, The Wanderings Of The Hopi, The Revenge Of The Katcinas, How The Circle (Pongo) Katcina And His Wife Became Stars, The Kokoshori Katcina And The Shongopavi Maiden, The Two War Gods And The Two Maidens, How The Po'okongs Destroyed Cookoko And His Wife, How Po'okong Killed The Bear, The Po'okongs Attend A Dance, The Po'okongs And The Balolookong, Masauwuu Marries A Maiden, and many, many more. For further information, on the writing visit G.W. Mullins' web site at http://gwmullins.wix.com/officialsite. For information on the art of C.L. Hause visit his web site at http://clarencehause.wix.com/homepage. Books from the Walking With Spirits series are available on Amazon.com, Kobo, Google Book Store, and Barnes and Noble. G.W.
