Jasper, Indiana, USA – November 29, 2021 – Kevin Schewe’s screenplay of Bad Love Strikes, has won its ninth international award as Best Screenplay at the Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival. Bad Love Strikes, the first novel in Schewe’s award winning Bad Love Gang adventure series, set the tone for a series which now comprises four books. His ability to mix genres of real history with science fiction, time travel and alien worlds makes Schewe’s literary creation singularly unique.
The judges at the Hollywood Weekly Magazine Film Festival raved about Bad Love Strikes: “In this story, we enter a masterful world of sci-fi, time travel, and WWII. In a small town in Tennessee, a gang of kids live daring lives filled with action and adventure. When they come across a time machine, they travel back on a death-defying mission to Nazi-occupied Poland. Full of danger, excitement and a little love, the kids race to rescue a group of Holocaust prisoners from certain death. It’s an excellent combination of Goonies meets the Lost Ark & we couldn’t get enough!”
Previous awards were picked up in Tokyo’s Genre Celebration Festival; Madrid, Spain, at the Madrid Arthouse Film Festival; the Seoul International Film Festival in Korea; and in Munich, Germany at the New Wave Short Film Festival, where it was chosen as a Special Jury Screenplay Selection. It also garnered a Prix Royal Paris Silver Screenplay Award, the South Florida International Film Festival for Best Original Screenplay for Young Adults, the L.A. Film Awards Best Sci-Fi Screenplay, and a Gold Script Writing Award for Sci-Fi Adventure from the Depth of Field International Film Festival.
As for the books themselves, they have collectively captured numerous awards including: Wishing Shelf Red Ribbon Winner, Literary Titan Silver Book Award, NABE Pinnacle Book Achievement Award, AMI Indie Book Awards, and an eLit Award to name a few.
The entire four book set, Bad Love Strikes, Bad Love Tigers, Bad Love Beyond and Bad Love Medicine, is available on Amazon at https://www.amazon.com/Bad-Love-Collection-Sci-Fi-Adventure-ebook/dp/B09LPPDBMM/ ASIN: B09LPPDBMM, or www.jancarolpublishing.com.
The Bad Love Gang series is part history lesson and part sci-fi adventure. It’s Teenage Goonies meets Raiders of the Lost Ark or Stand by Me meets Stranger Things-all the while being historically accurate! In Schewe’s most recent release, Bad Love Medicine, the engaging Bad Love Gang (based on his own friends in high school) once again set out to save history-this time, by stopping Hitler and the Nazis from creating a time machine of their own.
“If history was taught this way in school, everyone would be a scholar and educating ourselves not only about our accomplishments but the horrors of the past that should awaken and give insight to the path of a better future. A rare gem!” – David Holladay, MD, 5-Stars
“Skillful writing (both historical and fantastical), a zesty sense of humor, an appreciation for pop culture, and the ability to create memorably entertaining characters combine to make this an immensely impressive series -and experience! Very highly recommended.” – Grady Harp, Amazon Top 100 Reviewer, 5-Stars
In Bad Love Strikes, the Gang discovers The White Hole Project, a time machine created by Albert Einstein at the request of President Franklin Roosevelt in case the atomic bomb failed, and then go on to save a group of Holocaust victims. In the exciting first sequel, Bad Love Tigers, the Gang use the White Hole Project to travel back to 1945 to thwart Russian spies and protect the secrets of the White Hole Project and Area 51. In Bad Love Beyond, the Gang travel not just through time but through space as well to learn the reason behind Blue Nova One’s mysterious visit to earth and to get the cure for breast cancer. Then, in Bad Love Medicine, the Bad Love Gang has a two-fold mission: reunite a love-struck couple separated by time (while saving one of them from a future fate of breast cancer) and, at Winston Churchill’s personal request, stop Hitler and the Nazis from creating a time machine of their own.
