New Young Adult Author with Two Books Launches 'Get the Word Out'New Young Adult Author with Two Books Launches 'Get the Word Out'
by BWW News Desk - Sep 18, 2014

Young Adult author Sarah Daltry is not new to writing or to books in general. After a decade of teaching high school English, as well as serving as a YA and teen library program coordinator, she is quite familiar with books, writing, and the interests of teen readers. However, she is new to you, as she is only just finding her footing in writing YA fiction. Sarah's first YA novel, 'Backward Compatible,' is a story of video games, Xbox, and Young Love that embraces nerd and geek culture, from The Walking Dead to Game of Thrones and The Hobbit, to the authors' clear declaration that, 'I wish real life was directed by Joss Whedon.' On November 7, Sarah, along with Little Bird Publishing House of London, will be releasing a new Young Adult fantasy novel, 'Dust.' This novel is a story of a princess, an assassin, and a thief, all fighting to discover themselves and the role of fate as their world stands on the precipice of war. Join Sarah and Little Bird in a visit to Anara. The title is available now for preorder on Amazon. In addition, Sarah will be restructuring her previously published romance series as a new series focused on the issues the characters - and many teens - face, from suicide, abuse, self-harm, and bullying, with a clear overarching theme of self-awareness, self-acceptance, and hope. Sarah is available for interviews and review copies are available to qualified press contacts. More information can be found at sarahdaltry dot com. If you would like more information about this topic, please contact K. Muller at sarahdaltrybooks@gmail.com. (more...)

by Paul W. Thompson - Oct 20, 2014

Can a new musical be 'pre-Broadway' without having a New York theater booked, or without even announcing a timetable for said booking?

Nashville Opera's LA BOHEME Set for 10/9 & 11Nashville Opera's LA BOHEME Set for 10/9 & 11
by BWW News Desk - Oct 1, 2014

Rodolfo, a writter, shares a small garret in Paris with Marcello, a painter, Schaunard, a musician, and Colline, a philosopher. The four Bohemians are living in poverty, and yet still find plenty of humor in the situation. On Christmas Eve, their neighbor, a seamstress named Mimi?, knocks on the door because her candle has blown out and she asks Rodolfo for assistance. When he takes her hand, Rodolfo instantly falls in love - and opera has never been the same. With its thrilling, beautiful music and its mixture of high comedy and touching drama, the opera sweeps the viewer away into a world of Young Love, romance, and ultimately, bittersweet longing. With La Bohe?me, Puccini wonderfully captures just what it means to be young and alive through a brilliant mixture of lightness and darkness, all set to some of the most romantic music ever written.
