Jenny (Tales from P.A.W.S. 4) – New Release

Jenny

Hey folks, exciting news. After a long break from publishing I have a new release — a new short story from my ongoing series, Tales from P.A.W.S.

In this story we follow Miri Katz’s childhood best friend, Jenny.

Jenny is sitting on the steps of their old building in the Lower East Side drawing (she loves to draw) when she encounters a calico cat.

The cat leads here to the village of Manus Wu where she finds a bird trapped in a silver cage. This saddens Jenny and she longs to release the bird. In fact she longs to release all the birds trapped by the Bird Man.

Will she succeed? Find out in JENNY – just 99 cents in Kindle, Nook, iTunes and Kobo.

G is for Griddlebone

G

“Greetings, I am Griddlebone, the first of the Werecats. I was born in Vienna to an ordinary Jewish family and was taken by the Nazis as a teenager. They took me to a laboratory where I met Dr. Weschler.

The scientist merged my essence with that of a street tabby and created more than he bargained for. I rose up that night – I tripled my size, attacked my captors, and escaped into the night.

I took refuge in an empty warehouse on Glocken Street. From this headquarters I conducted raids on the Nazi facilities and rescued other werecats.

You can read my full story in Griddlebone and look out from me in Umbrae.”

Hi everyone – Happy April Fools Day and welcome to the first day of Blogging from A to Z. During the month of April I’ll be introducing 26 characters from the P.A.W.S. Saga, one for each letter of the alphabet.

So without further ado let me introduce you to Alistair Wolfe:

“Charmed to be here. And of course it is only fitting that I Alistair Wolfe am the first character to be featured this month. A little about me – Wolfe, of course, is not my real name, but I love the irony of my chosen title.

I have been a werewolf for a long time now. Centuries if the truth be told. It all began with a trip to Transylvania with the alchemist Quentin Frakes. There I met Roman, the oldest of all the werewolves. Most folk show fear when they meet a werewolf. I walked willingly into Roman’s den. Roman not only turned me, but he took me under his wing as my mentor. He taught me the secrets of the werewolf. And I learnt that by consuming human flesh and blood I could become incredibly strong and virtually immortal.

But there is more. Over the centuries I have developed my hypnotic magic and have used it to build my own formidable and loyal pack. Ultimately I plan to elevate werewolves to their rightful place as rulers of the world. But as we are immortal we can take our time.”

You can read more of Alistair’s story in P.A.W.S. and Tales from P.A.W.S.

Friday Freebie – Griddlebone!

The werecat flexed his claws, as he waited in the shadows. Griddlebone wished he could rescue them all, but his orders were clear. He could only take one …

FIVE STARS from Reader’s Favorites!

“Tales from P.A.W.S. deals with the macabre, but also brings a tale of justice, which is clearly best when dished out raw with a side of human blood. I found myself cheering for Alistair, feeling sorrow for Ramora, before praying for a happy ending for Griddlebone and Esther. With such a whirlwind of emotions, I would have to recommend this book for those who enjoy their reading on the gory side, with a touch of supernatural in the mix.”
