Melissa Cistaro discusses and signs Pieces of My Mother: A Memoir
Vroman's Bookstore, Saturday, May 23 at 4pm
One summer, Melissa Cistaro's mother drove off without explanation. Devastated, Melissa and her brothers were left to pick up the pieces, always wondering why their mother left them. Thirty-five years later, with children of her own, Melissa finds herself in Olympia, Washington, as her mother is dying. After decades of hiding her painful memories, she has just days to find out what happened that summer and confront the fear that she could do the same to her own kids. But Melissa never expects to stumble across a cache of letters her mother wrote to her but never sent, which could hold the answers she seeks. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

William Wellman Jr. discusses and signs Wild Bill Wellman: Hollywood Rebel
Vroman's Bookstore, Sunday, May 24 at 4pm
The extraordinary life--the first--of the legendary, undercelebrated Hollywood director known in his day as "Wild Bill" (and he was!) Wellman, whose eighty-two movies (six of them uncredited), many of them iconic; many of them sharp, cold, brutal; others poetic, moving; all of them a lesson in close-up art, ranged from adventure and gangster pictures to comedies, aviation, romances, westerns, and searing social dramas. Among his iconic pictures: the pioneering World War I epic "Wings "(winner of the first Academy Award for best picture), "Public Enemy "(the toughest gangster picture of them all), and" the original "A Star Is Born. David O. Selznick called him "one of the motion pictures' greatest craftsmen. Robert Redford described him as "feisty, independent, self-taught, and self-made. He stood his ground and fought his battles for artistic integrity, never wavering, always clear in his film sense."

Here is a revealing, boisterous portrait of the handsome, tough-talking, hard-drinking, uncompromising maverick (he called himself a "crazy bastard")--juvenile delinquent; professional ice-hockey player as a kid; World War I flying ace at twenty-one in the Lafayette Flying Corps (the Lafayette Escadrille),crashing more than six planes ("We only had four instruments, none of which worked. And no parachutes . . . Greatest goddamn acrobatics you ever saw in your life")--whose own life story was more adventurous and more unpredictable than anything in the movies. (Pantheon Books) Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Phantastic Fiction - A Shamanic Approach to Story
Phantastic Fiction - A Shamanic Approach to Story
PRLog - May 18, 2015 - Laguna Beach – May 18, 2015, Long time writing teacher Matthew J. Pallamary’s “Phantastic Fiction - A Shamanic Approach to Story” will be released by Mystic Ink Publishing at the 2015 Santa Barbara Writers Conference and will be available in print and e-book formats worldwide through major online retailers, including Amazon, Smashwords, Apple, Barnes & Noble, Kobo, Overdrive, Flipkart, Baker & Taylor, Page Foundry, and many others.

As part of the release celebration, Pallamary, along with Inner Journey's Greg Friedman will host WRITERPALOOZA, a writing themed show which will highlight all aspects of dramatic writing, memoir, nonfiction, writing workshops, writer's conferences, and the many paths to publication. There will also be giveaways and guests, among them Marianne Dougherty, director of the prestigious Santa Barbara Writers Conference.

Pallamary's guide to dramatic writing grew out of his popular Phantastic Fiction Workshop which incorporates elements of shamanism that have formed the basis for Joseph Campbell’s legendary Hero’s Journey. Pallamary’s packed workshops have been a staple of the Santa Barbara Writers Conference and the Southern California Writer’s Conference for over twenty five years. He has also lectured at numerous other venues and led his own weekend intensive workshops.

Pallamary has spent extended time in the jungles, mountains, and deserts of North, Central, and South America pursuing his studies of shamanism and ancient cultures. Through his research into both the written word and the ancient beliefs of shamanism, he has uncovered the heart of what a story really is and integrated it into core dramatic concepts that have their basis in shamanism.

His historical novel of first contact between shamans and Jesuits in 18th century South America, titled, "Land Without Evil", received rave reviews along with a San Diego Book Award. It was also adapted into a full-length stage and sky show, co-written with Agent Red and performed by Sky Candy, an Austin Texas aerial group. The making of the show was the subject of a PBS series, Arts in Context episode, which garnered an EMMY nomination.

His memoir "Spirit Matters", detailing his journeys to the jungles of Peru, took top honors in the San Diego Book Awards’ Spiritual Book Category, and was an Award-Winning Finalist in the National Best Book Awards.

"Spirit Matters" was also released as an audio book, narrated by the author and produced and directed by Greg Friedman at the KX 93.5 studios in Laguna Beach. A portion of all Spirit Matters audio book sales goes to KX 93.5 which is a listener supported station.

His tribute to Ray Bradbury, a short story collection titled “A Short Walk to the Other Side” was an Award Winning Finalist in the International Book Awards and an Award Winning Finalist in the USA Best Book Awards.

Other Mystic Ink books have won the following awards:

International Book Award - 1st Place - Nonfiction New Age - The Infinity Zone
San Diego Book Award - Award Winning Finalist - The Infinity Zone

Mystic Ink’s titles have also won the acclaim of noted writers, among them Ray Bradbury, Charles Champlin - L.A. Times Critic Emeritus, Charles M. Schulz, Barnaby Conrad, Victor Villasenor, David Brin, and noted psychologist Stanley Krippner.

Based in San Diego since 2000, Mystic Ink Publishing is an independent publisher focusing on works of a spiritual, shamanic, new age, or transcendent nature as well as dramatic works of Phantastic Fiction © in the paranormal genres of magical realism, horror, supernatural thrillers, and science fiction.

The show will also be available as a downloadable podcast from the KX 93.5 web site.

Laina Villeneuve discusses and signs The Right Thing Easy
Vroman's Bookstore, Tuesday, May 26 at 7pm
When Dani Blazer set aside her career as a rodeo barrel racer for teaching in a California mountain town she thought it was for love and a family. All she has now is an empty home, a broken heart and a young mustang that needs a slow, gentle hand. Hope Fielding watches the intriguing, attractive newcomer with a nameless panic. She’s been the mother to her siblings most of her life, and the choices she’s made to please her family and church weren’t easy. She never dreamed she’d have to make them again. As the long mountain winter sets in, passions catch fire and two women desperately resist the choices of the heart. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Jacqueline Suskin discusses and signs Go Ahead & Like It
Vroman's Bookstore, Wednesday, May 27 at 7pm
In this scrapbook-style art book you are invited to write lists of things you like. Things that excite you and meaningful things that make every day special. It’s a self-help book for people who might not be drawn to the standard self-help style of writing. It’s also creative thinking for people who might not identify themselves as creative thinkers. Above everything else, it presents a simple, dependable method to notice the good that’s all around us. Poet, Jacqueline Suskin’s personal lists are intertwined with photographs and illustrations to help paint the picture of how we can inhabit our world more fully and smile more along the way. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.

Tom Stern discusses and signs Sutterfeld, You Are Not a Hero
Vroman's Bookstore, Thursday, May 28 at 7pm
Charleston Sutterfeld is an average guy. He does what most people do: shows up to work, completes designated tasks, avoids conflict, and heads home. He rarely wonders if there is something more pent up inside of him, and his life seldom offers him a chance to explore that potential. But when he happens upon an unexpected bit of information about the head of the mighty corporation, Thundercom, things start to get interesting. Thundercom has revolutionized business, but Sutterfeld quickly discovers that the lauded humanitarian at the center of the company’s success is not as he appears. Rather than proving his undoing, this discovery brings about Charleston's inexplicable rise to the top of Thundercom's bizarre ranks. His success requires that he keep from asking one simple question. A question that is deeply threatening to the most powerful man-like thing in the global economy. Those wishing to get books signed will be asked to purchase at least one copy of the author's most recent title from Vroman's. For each purchased copy of the newest title, customers may bring up to three copies from home to be signed. This policy applies to all Vroman's Bookstore events unless otherwise noted.
