Website for BUZZ Thriller Goes Live

BUZZ website screenshot   The website for BUZZ: A Novel by David Lebedoff just went live today. Very timely with Zika Virus in the headlines.

   In BUZZ, terrorists have figured out a way to inject a deadly poison into mosquitoes, and their plan is to release the killer bugs at the Minnesota State Fair. Interestingly enough, the heroine in the story, written and published last year, is a pregnant epidemiologist.
   Since news of the epidemic broke, Lebedoff has been interviewed about his book on the nationally syndicated radio show It's Your Health with Lisa Davis (Feb. 4) and by Rex Combs on WDPN-AM in Cleveland (Feb. 9).

Teen Author's Debut Book Now on the Shelf at His Elementary School Library

saving Stripes 2 - Sunset Hill   Just four years after leaving Sunset Hill Elementary in Plymouth, current Wayzata High School freshman Justin M. Anderson has achieved something few of his peers will ever do. A book he wrote is now on the shelf at his former school library.

   On Thurs., Feb. 18, 2016, around 4 p.m., Justin, who lives in Minnetonka, will return to Sunset Hill to be interviewed by kids who are a part of TNN, the school’s television news team. He is planning to share the story behind his book, and also how he became a published author.

   Saving Stripes: A Kitty’s Story is the true story of how the orange tabby named Stripes came into the author’s life. Justin found Stripes, her mother and two siblings in his neighborhood park in the summer of 2014 while out for a walk with his mother. Fearing they wouldn’t survive for long in the woods where coyotes and other wild animals had been seen recently, Justin insisted that they do something to help the feline family. With the assistance of neighbors, he managed to catch all four cats. His parents brought the cats to the Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley.  Right away in the days after the rescue, Justin began writing his book which tells the story of the rescue from the point of view of the kitten he eventually adopted named Stripes.

   Saving Stripes: A Kitty’s Story was published in June 2015. Since the book’s release, more than 150 copies have been sold for $10 each with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting S.O.S. Rescue Relief, Inc., of Plymouth, which runs The Adopt-A-Pet Shop on Vicksburg Lane. The nonprofit played a key role in the rescue. 

   Books are available for purchase at The Adopt A Pet Shop and Cats Preferred Animal Hospital in Plymouth, and online through Amazon.com and https://www.createspace.com/4931704.

"Confused Woman: Tales & Advice on Love, Dating & Relationships" to Launch Just in Time for Valentine's Day
Melanie Reitz - FOX 9 BUZZ - 2-11-16   Valentine's Day is less than a week away, and for those who are online dating, newly single, or perpetually boyfriend-less, "Confused Woman" Melanie Reitz has great advice to share.
   “When it comes to dating and relationships, it’s either you sit there and feel sorry for yourself and cry yourself to sleep at night, or you laugh about it and have fun with it. That’s what I have chosen to do,” says Reitz, who since childhood has been known for her sarcastic nature. “Instead of getting real upset about things, I joke about them and then I feel better,” she says.
   Since her divorce three years ago, Reitz has been celebrating the humor in the dating mishaps she has experienced. She has even written a book about them. Confused Woman: Tales and Advice on Love, Dating & Relationships is a collection of stories and tips on everything from online dating and how to separate the good guys from those just looking for sex, to dealing with an ex and introducing the new man in your life to your kids.
   Reitz' book officially launches the evening of Friday, Feb. 12, at the Brave New Workshop’s ETC Theatre located at 824 Hennepin Avenue in Minneapolis. Reitz will sign books in the theatre’s event space on the first floor beginning at 6 p.m. where attendees can indulge in a "Confused Cosmo,” mixed special for the launch event, or any other drink they desire that is available from the bar. (Here is a link to the preview story that aired on the FOX 9 BUZZ on Feb. 11)
   After the book signing guests will have an opportunity to go upstairs to catch a preview of the new Brave New Workshop main stage show, “The Working Dead.” (NOTE: Those who order online or call the box office and offer the discount code “Confused” will get $5 off the price of a ticket to the show).
   For more information about the book, visit www.confusedwoman.com.
