by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2016

Native American history is filled with stories about animals, creation of the Earth and man, life lessons and of course ghosts... Ghosts, spirits, and the 'walking dead' were often known to pay visits to their family and those left behind. Many of these stories revolved around lost loves and attempts to reclaim the person taken from them. Other stories spun tales of revenge and payback for those who wronged them.

In 'Ghosts, Spirits And The Afterlife In Native American Indian Mythology And Folklore,' you will be given many opportunities to relive the past cultures of many tribes and their beliefs in ghosts, spirits and the afterlife. You will be presented with stories of individuals who transcended the plane of death to interact with the living and other spirits who have remained earthbound and troubled who have to work through a life lesson to successfully move on. Included in this collection are the stories: Ghost of the White Deer, The Story of a Poor Man, The Resuscitation of the only Daughter, The Spirit Bride, Heavy Collar and the Ghost Woman, Bluejay finds a Wife, Two Ghostly Lovers, Origin of the Medicine Man, The Medicine Grizzly Bear, A Little Brave and the Medicine Woman, The Man Who Was Afraid of Nothing, The Ghosts' Buffalo, The Land of the Dead, Blue Jay Visits Ghost Town, The Spirit Land, The Skin Shifting Old Woman, and many, more.

Class Act Books Launches Two New Romance Series
by BWW News Desk - Feb 19, 2016

February is Romance Month, and in keeping with that, Class Act Books is releasing the first entries in two new romance series. The series The McCoys, by veteran author Toni V. Sweeney, deals with the adventures of the three sons of Quinton McCoy: Donal, Colin, and Padraig. Beginning in 19th century County Tipperary and crossing the ocean to the United States Nebraska Territory, each novel will be a standalone but also a continuation of the family saga. The first novel in the series is The Honest Rake, Book 1: Donal. Living in Regency London after his graduation from Cambridge, Donal McCoy has found his niche in life...as a genteel young gentleman by day but a rake by night. His father's demand that he marry and produce an heir makes a problem Donal thinks can be easily solved...until Love gets in the way. Though Ms Sweeney's main genre is sci-fi/fantasy, she has written several romance novels which have been well-received by the reading public. Her romantic suspense novel 'Tuesday's Child,' written as Icy Snow Blackstone, won first place in Contemporary Romance from Paranormal Romance Guild's 2015 Reviewers Choice awards. Sherry Derr-Wille's Never Too Late for Love is a mature romance dealing with a former WAC who returns to her home town after her husband's death. There the widow meets The Man Who Was her armed services recruiter during World War II. As much as Adam Welter was glad to help Luella enlist, he wasn't glad to see her leave for basic training. When she returns fifty years later, he makes a determined attempt to renew the short but romantic acquaintance they both had as much younger people. There's only one problem: Luella feels she should remain faithful to her husband's memory. Never Too Late for Love is the first entry in the Mature Love series and is also a standalone novel. Ms. Derr-Wille is noted for her Rhonda Pohs mystery series, a police procedural concerning a Wisconsin policewoman and her high school coach husband. It is also published by Class Act Books, with seven entries in the series. Class Act Books went under new ownership in 2012 and in the past two years has gathered many talented authors under its logo. Publishing in genres from Romance to Horror, its writers and their novels are listed on amazon, Barnes & Noble, Goodreads, and Smashwords. In the past four years, their authors have garnered many awards from the yearly Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewers Awards, and also the Preditors & Editors Annual Readers Poll. Besides having authors honored in the above contests, one of their cover artists was voted one of the ten outstanding artists of 2014. (more...)

BWW Blog: FIDDLER ON THE ROOF's Ben Rappaport- They're People. Just Like Us.
by Guest Blogger: Ben Rappaport - Apr 13, 2016

I must have been an incredibly naive 12 year old. As my family and I were leaving the Marriott Marquis Theatre after a performance of the revival of Annie Get Your Gun, we passed by the stage door. A hoard of people were crowded behind the barricades, eagerly clutching their playbills, sharpies, and cameras in hopes to snag an autograph or photo with Bernadette Peters and Tom Wopat. We were watching from across the street. A security person was guarding the door, and would escort Bernadette and Tom as they made their way through the crowd, greeting their fans. Once they were done, they each got into the back seats of their respective black Lincoln town cars and rode off into the night. What I couldn't wrap my head around, at the time, was....where do they go? (more...)
