CA – New Year’s Babble Eve 2016

00-hbo2016

Join Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman (the co-hosts of the wildly-popular podcast, HOLLYWOOD BABBLE-ON) on New Year’s Eve for Babble-On Comic Con Theatre at 8:00 PM and a live recording of the podcast at 10:00 PM!

Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman take a twisted look at showbiz news and bite the Hollywood hand that feeds them. Sometimes, they feel bad and give Hollywood a tetanus shot and some Neosporin, but, even then, they usually just turn around and bite Hollywood’s other hand. They can’t help it. It’s their nature. It’s like that “scorpion and frog” story. But, deep down, they’re just two nice East Coast boys… who happen to have a heavy dependence on drugs and alcohol, respectively.

CA – No Man’s Land Signing

000_fenn_nml

Sherilyn Fenn (Twin Peaks, Shameless) signs her new children’s book No Man’s Land at Dark Delicacies on Saturday January 14th at 2:00 PM. She will sign one additional item free with purchase of the book.  Miss Fenn will be autographing additional photos from her personal collections for $35.

A YOUNG BOY’S JOURNEY THROUGH THE LAND OF “NOs” ——- “NO!” was the answer given to everything and everyone the little boy encountered. Not even his loving mother would be able to sway him into a cooperative “YES.” As time went on, the frustration of losing friends and becoming more isolated in his own “No Man’s Land” caused the little boy to grow lonelier and sadder each day. In a story that may not be too uncommon, Sherilyn Fenn sensitively helps explore a seemingly troubled boy’s life and how, in his great despair, he copes with being alone. She seeks to reveal how the smallest of adjustments in perception change and uplift one’s life. The lesson of No Man’s Land will ring true in the hearts of parents and children alike. So simple a lesson, yet so vast.

CA – Nowhere Man Launch Party

000-nowhere-man

Press Release:

DIESEL, A Bookstore in Brentwood welcomes Gregg Hurwitz back to the store to discuss his new thriller, The Nowhere Man: An Orphan X Novel, on Tuesday, January 17th at 6:30pm. This will be his publication party and all are invited to attend!

Spoken about only in whispers, the Nowhere Man can only be reached by the truly desperate. He can, and will, do anything to save them. Evan Smoak is the Nowhere Man.

Taken from a group home at twelve, Evan was raised and trained as part of the Orphan Program, an off-the-books operation designed to create deniable intelligence assets, i.e. assassins; Evan was Orphan X. He broke with the Program, using everything he learned to disappear and reinvent himself as the Nowhere Man.

His new life is interrupted when a surprise attack comes from an unlikely angle and Evan is caught unaware. Captured, drugged, and spirited off to a remote location, he finds himself heavily guarded and cut off from everything he knows. His captors think they have him trapped and helpless in a virtual cage but they don’t know who they’re dealing with or that they’ve trapped themselves inside that cage with one of the deadliest and most resourceful men on earth.

Continuing his electrifying series featuring Evan Smoak, Gregg Hurwitz delivers a blistering, compelling new novel in the series launched with the instant international bestseller, Orphan X.

Gregg Hurwitz is the New York Times bestselling author of thrillers including You’re Next and Orphan X. Critically acclaimed, Hurwitz is a two-time finalist for ITW s Best Novel prize and a finalist for CWA’s Steel Dagger. In addition, Hurwitz is a screenwriter, TV producer, and comic book author. The first book in the Evan Smoak series, Orphan X, has been sold in twenty-one countries. Hurwitz, who lives in Los Angeles, is writing the screen adaption of Orphan X for Warner Brothers and Bradley Cooper.
