5) Literary Erotica Novel Wins a 5-Star Silver Medal in Readers' Favorite Contest
by BWW News Desk - April 06, 2015

What does a man do when nothing tastes good anymore? he finds She. A Web photo of a dominatrix sends a man in midlife crisis on a last-ditch attempt to feel truly alive one more time, even if it kills him. Growing numb to life, to his on-and-off girlfriend of many years, his career, even Scotch, a man turns fifty. He is a translator who can no longer dream of translating beautiful works of fiction. He is an amateur musician who can no longer dream of expressing his life on a higher plane, without words. As he glares inside himself he sees little but his declining sexuality, his crumbling hold on life, a growing list of failed relationships, and a darkening well of loneliness. Stumbling upon an image on the Internet one night, he suddenly hears cell doors sliding open. He stares at a young woman, in profile, beautiful, unblinking, and regal. Instinctively he knows that by lingering on that image he will shatter a relationship that has kept him on the sane side of loneliness as surely as if he stepped in front of a speeding eighteen-wheeler. But desperate to feel alive again before time runs out, he knows he must see the stranger behind the pixels on his laptop screen. Although it is her image that first transfixes him, his eye afterwards chances on a handful of words on the Internet page. She is a dominatrix. The word triggers something inside him, blows the dust off fantasies trickling back to adolescence, and slowly begins to re-choreograph his decades of sexual memories. Was he ever really the dominant male he thought he was? Did he have a sexual alter-ego? Was this the last card he had to play in life? The face on the screen held the answer. He would find out even if it killed him. Praise for he & She: '... a stylish piece of literary fiction... intellectually engaging throughout. A finely drawn portrait of desire in its fall and winter seasons.'- BlueInk Review '...All in all, this is a delectable novel about a man exploring his unknown sexual fantasies at the price of possibly losing his true self along the way.'- Red City Review 'he & She' is available in print and ebook formats. Book Details: he & She By Wayne Clark Publisher: Wayne Clark YUL/NYC ISBN: 978-0992120207 ASIN: B00G3JIPJA Pages: 368 Genre: Literary Fiction, Literary Erotica About The Author: Award-winning author Wayne Clark was born in 1946 in Ottawa, Ont., Canada, but has called Montreal home since 1968. Woven through that time frame in no particular order have been interludes in Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, Germany, Holland and Mexico. By far the biggest slice in a pie chart of his career would be labelled journalism, including newspapers and magazines, as a reporter, editor and freelance writer. The other, smaller slices of the pie would also represent words in one form or another, in advertising as a copywriter and as a freelance translator. However, unquantifiable in a pie chart would be the slivers and shreds of time stolen over the years to write fiction.

7) Biographical Novel About Charles Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace is Released
by BWW News Desk - April 06, 2015

Author Avi Sirlin and Aurora Metro Press are pleased to announce that their historical biographical novel, 'The Evolutionist' is receiving rave reviews. The Historical Novel Society says the book is 'Brimful of factual details... This novel will appeal to any reader interested in... the lives of the intrepid Victorian specimen hunters.' 'The Evolutionist' tells the story of one of Britain's most controversial and misunderstood Victorians, a man Sir David Attenborough called 'the most admirable character in the history of science' Alfred Russel Wallace. In 1858, Wallace earned equal credit with Charles Darwin for the discovery of our modern theory of evolution. But in an era that pitted science against faith, Wallace boldly declared his belief in both thus clashing headlong with London's scientific elite, including Darwin. More than 150 years later, Wallace has become the forgotten father of evolution. Book Description/Blurb: 1858. The Malay Archipelago. In these remote tropics, a young British naturalist, Alfred Wallace, toils in obscurity. He collects specimens-beetles, moths, ants and birds-that sell for pennies apiece in England. He also investigates ideas that perplex the world's leading scientific minds, an elite community that spurns him as a mere interloper. One night in his isolated jungle hut, suffering from fever and hallucination, Wallace solves the greatest mystery of the era: the origin of species. To circulate his discovery, he contacts a distant acquaintance-Charles Darwin. Unbeknownst to Wallace, Darwin has been secretly penning a near-identical version of the same evolutionary theory for twenty years. Wallace's fateful decision to confide in Darwin forges a unique bond between the two men. Darwin achieves world-renown and Wallace earns, if nothing else, widespread grudging respect. But then Wallace returns to England and takes up with the spiritualist movement sweeping the nation. Devotion to spiritualism launches Wallace into a headlong clash not only with London's scientific establishment, but the man at its very center, Darwin. From oppressive jungle to mid-Victorian London, The Evolutionist tells of one man's determination to seek out his own truth. It is a story of perseverance and inspiration, science and faith, and ultimately, it is about the resilience of the human heart. 'The Evolutionist' is available in both print and ebook formats. Praise for 'The Evolutionist': A strongly impressionistic portrait of an undeservedly little-known scientist, The Evolutionist is a raptly compelling read.' - Midwest Book Review 'Sirlin weaves fact and fiction into an enthralling account... ' - Natalie Heng, The Star (Malaysia) '...If you've ever heard the theory of natural selection explained and thought, 'Why didn't I think of that?' then read this book and find out why. It took far more than just thinking about it; it took a lifetime of hardship and adventure.' - David Jones, author 'North American Wildlife' 'A wide audience beyond the scientifically curious will find this an easy read and come away with a richer understanding of the rigours of early scientific research - both in the field and in the halls of established theory.' - Professor Gene J. Parola, author 'The Devil to Pay' 'The Evolutionist is a triumph of biographical fiction, an utterly convincing character study of one of the most poignant figures in the history of science.' - Nowick Gray, author of 'Hunter's Daughter' 'An exciting adventure story well told.' - Peter Hobson, Shiny New Books Listen to a short (10 minute) interview with Avi on CBC Radio: https://soundcloud.com/cbcvictoria/writer-avi-sirlin-on-the-evolutionist-the-strange-tale-of-alfred-russel-wallace Book Details: 'The Evolutionist' By Avi Sirlin Publisher: Aurora Metro Press Published: November 2014 ISBN: 978-1906582531 ASIN: B00P8BNG48 Pages: 334 Genre: Historical Fiction; Biographical Novel About The Author: Avi Sirlin holds degrees in biology and law.
