Follow That Cat! To Magic...


His name’s Micah.  See him?  On the broomstick?  And on the cover, too.  He’s walking on top of the author’s name.  He’s on the “o” and “n” right now, but don’t expect him to stay there.  Oh, no, he moves around a lot.  Micah, Angel of the Divine Plan.  He watches over spiritual evolution and reveals the next steps of our plans.  Right now he’s on assignment.  Just a little added protection for two of the good guys.  The good guys of War-N-Wit, Inc.The Witch.  Meet Ariel Anson and Chad Garrett, why don’t you? See, it’s like this….
Ariel Anson thinks she has her life in order.  She’s young, smart, and beautiful, even if she doesn’t believe the beautiful part.  She’s a paralegal with a great career and a fiancé who’s a CPA.  You just can’t get any steadier than that.  Then she meets private investigator, bounty hunter, process server Chad Garrett.  What does War-N-Wit, Inc. stand for anyway?  Warlock and Witch?  For real?  Oh, yes!  For real.  And that’s not even scratching the surface! Her life as she knows it is over!  
Excerpt:

“So let's cut to the bare essentials. We've been here before, you and I, many times, we are one, baby girl, we are each other's eternal soul mates, each other's other half, and I know it and you know it. And if nothing else, I intended to establish enough contact so I can find you easier next time. And if you refuse to believe it and believe in us and I have to wait till next time, then I will. But I will find you again. Because you can run but you can't hide. I just want as much of you as I can get this time so it won't take so long next time." He shrugged again. "Last time I didn't find you till we were both so much older it almost wasn't worth it. That one was a bitch. And I don't intend for it to happen again.

The world stood still, closed in, retreated, kaleidoscoped back out into swirls of scenes of places and times I'd never been, never seen. Hot, bright sun beat down on an arena covered in sand and blood, my heart ripping apart as I looked at the bodies lying so still amidst the roars of the approving, raucous crowd. I felt the biting cold, so cold it burned, coming from the snow stretching out across what I knew, knew with absolute certainty, to be the Russian steppes. I cringed from the visions of the shadowed chambers filled with monstrous man-made instruments of pain and the screams rolling out of them. I stood on the mountains in the mists and heard the faint echo of bagpipes. I saw blue water and shining white sand and smelled the salt air.

Coming soon!  War-N-Wit, Inc. - Resurrection   And Micah's moved.  Can you find the cat?

  2. This sounds delicious, Gail! Can't help wondering why Chad and Ariel need Micah's protection just now. Is this going to be a series? Hope so.

    1. Hey, Pat! So glad you dropped in! Yes, ma'am, this is a series! Next -- Resurrection. Did you see it's cover? After that, The Coven. Chad and Ariel get into all sorts of things. They don't even know they've got a little guardian angel cat. But sooner or later, they probably will.

  7. Just want to let everyone know, I had the privilege to read this book and I highly recommend it. I mean seriously! War-N-Wit, Inc. is a delightful romance filled with humor and adventure. From the first page on, I was held captive and I couldn't wait to see what happened next. By the way, Gail. I love the site, It really turned out great.

    1. Thank you, darlin'! Your comments on this novel before I finished it -- they're what made me finish it. I truly didn't know if it would appeal to readers. You convinced me it would. (So see what you started?)

    1. Penny, I'm 'bout to pop! And lest y'all think I'm trying to take credit -- this site is what it is because I've made wonderful friends who've been in this industry for years who were willing to share what they knew. The only credit I take is having enough sense to lisent to them!

  9. Love it!!!It's so different from your other site:)

    One suggestion is I think the first cat is hard to see. You might need a lighter background, I like the ones on white. It is pretty scary, though! Well done my friend:)

  10. Nope. Black cats are supposed to be hard to see. Hard to get away from, too. He he he...

  11. Gail ... I see Micah is already getting up to mischief. : ) When I was working on your covers, my own cat - a tuxedo male named Equinox - was doing his typical "pet me" thing where he lays in front of my laptop on my desk and bats at my computer screen to try and subtly let me know that my attentions is misplaced. He helped me pick out what pose Micah took for the second and third books by where his paw landed - especially since he had just gotten done playing with his water dish. LOL Of course, then he tried to change your title to a very long stream of nonsense letters when he decided enough was enough and just laid down on my keyboard, but well, he's a spoiled little bit of mischief and given that he is a cat, I was in the wrong for not immediately giving him my undivided attention.

    1. If this shows up twice, sorry. Thought it posted and apparently it didn't. Michelle, please tell Equinox (love the name) thank you for Micah and me. And I can never thank you and Jude enough for this series' covers.

    2. Will do (and he will love it so long as it involves treats). We call him Nox for short. Which fits for Obnoxious as well as Equinox. LOL His newest trick is that he thinks when the fish get fed that he should get a treat.

  16. Spatz just popped me one. Seems she's ticked I didn't mention the exquisite member of her kind...so allow me to repent and praise Micah. I also LOVE the premise of your series. You KNOW how much Kat and I LOVE cats, but you also know how much I adore non-traditional stories. Your hints about reincarnation, magic, and suspense have my inner psychic tingling merrily.

    Love You, Love your new picture, love your new blog, and LOVE the way your mind works.

    1. Tell Spatz Micah says hello! He's kind of one those serendipity things that just sorta happened! And no, I don't thing anybody's gonna call this series "traditional"! Hope not, anyway!

  17. Love the black cats. They look like Ellie, my little sweetie. Of course, that was five pounds ago (hers not mine). Now she's a little 'fuller' of figure. However, you can't go wrong when you include a cat in your blog or book.
