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 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...)

New Children's Book RYAN THE PIRATE is Released
by BWW News Desk - Feb 12, 2016

Climb aboard the mighty pirate ship Bella for a swashbuckling adventure with Ryan, the fearsome pirate captain. He and his crew of misfits seek buried treasure, but danger awaits those who sail the high seas. Follow their story in this new book by author Joseph Louis Garces III, released by Dog Ear Publishing. In their latest collaboration, Garces and illustrator Bethaney Abercrombie create a story that stars Ryan, who looks every bit the pirate with his peg leg, patch covering one eye, a bushy beard and a hook in place of his right hand. He and his crew - who all have checkered pasts - sail to an island in hope of finding the treasure marked on their map. Once there, they spend days looking for it to no avail. Fate steps in when a drenching rainstorm pops up, and what could have been disaster quickly turns to joy as they make a surprising discovery. 'Ryan the Pirate' is the third in a series of adventure books dedicated to the author's Three Sons. Its rhyming words move the story along quickly, and the colorful illustrations with their bold brushstrokes bring the adventure to life. This is the third book for author Joseph Louis Garces III, who also wrote 'Garrett the Firefighter' and 'Tyler the Cowpoke.' Garces, a firefighter and arson investigator for the Oxnard Fire Department, previously served as an elementary school teacher. He is a graduate of Southern Utah University.

Author L.A. Hollis Releases New Medical Thriller
by BWW News Desk - Apr 29, 2016

Author L.A. Hollis Releases New Medical Thriller Entitled Blood Virus: A Pandemic by Design Author L.A. Hollis is pleased to announce the release of her new medical thriller, 'Blood Virus: A Pandemic by Design.' Thousands are dying and many more sickened as an unknown virus runs rampant through Western Africa. Its victims experience a violent death within a few days of exposure, so the CDC jumps in before the virus can become a global pandemic. They send their best man, Dr. Lennox Richards of the Epidemic Intelligence Service, to ground zero in Benin. Lennox heads up an international team of top specialists with the intent of identifying and possibly developing a vaccine to halt the virus's progress. However, there's a problematic variable: the virus is ethno-specific, killing only blacks and leaving others with nothing more than a common cold. As an African American, the stakes have suddenly changed for Dr. Lennox Richards. The good doctor has yet to realize a more sinister plot is being waged, with Benin as the initial test site for the bioengineered killer. A lethal plan is in effect to expose the world's ethnic groups to a virus specific to their particular race-in other words, the implementation of an ethnic bomb. With time running out and no cure in sight, will Dr. Lennox Richards be able to stay alive and halt the doomsday scenario that looms close at hand? Blood Virus: A Pandemic by Design is available in both print and ebook formats. Book Description: Blood Virus: A Pandemic by Design A Pandemic by Design By L.A.
