Squire Cheyney publishing to release his new book this month

           DOWNINGTOWN _ Chester County author Bruce Mowday will have copies of his new book First Date Homicides available for sale when he takes part in charity events, talks and book signings in the coming month.

Squire Cheyney books is scheduled to release First Date Homicides later this month. The book is fiction based on frightening facts. The chilling details of brutal murders of Christians across the globe used in the book come straight from published reports. The book uses a fictionalized murder investigation in Chester County and Philadelphia to tell the genocide story.

“This is my first fiction book but First Date Homicides is more fact than fiction,” Mowday said. “From reading internet newspapers from all over the world for years reporting on the Christian genocide taking place, it was clear the United States media covered only a small fraction of the stories. I wanted to write a book to highlight the issue and thought the fiction setting was the best option.”

Copies of First Date Homicides can be obtained from Mowday by emailing him at The book costs $19.95.

Mowday is an award-winning author and newspaper reporter. He has authored more than 15 books on history, sports, business and true crime. Mowday has appeared on the Discovery ID channel, C-SPAN, the Pennsylvania Cable Network and Philadelphia and local television shows. He is a contributing editor with Business 2 Business magazine.
