Great news, everyone! Today I have a guest blogger! Ebunnygirl will be posting today’s edition of the Monday Blog. Please enjoy!
I had a revelation the other day. While there weren’t any sparks or canons blasting, it was still an important moment for me. I realized, reading changed my life. Discovering books and the places they could take me, literally changed everything for me. Yes, I know: I sound like a corny afterschool special. But it’s the truth! I learned just how big the world really was, and the variety of characters I read about, showed me how diverse people are. Girls don’t always have to be princesses and damsels in distress. Boys can be strong, or they can show some emotion. And as for nonfiction and fiction, I learned to appreciate both: facts about things in the world I was unaware of, and worlds created from the minds of creative authors.
Nowadays, I see people reading books on e-readers and tablets, but it’s always nice to see people reading physical books. I’m thankful for that. I’m considering writing a book of my own, I’m just not sure of what to write about. I have received a lot of encouragement from Nicole Woolaston, for whom I am blogging today. Reading opened so many doors for me, and made me feel as though anything is possible.

Author & Artist
Creator of Unique Amazon Books
My name is Nicole E. Woolaston. I was born in Queens, New York, where I currently reside. I began writing books for myself in first grade, and continued to do so, even after I graduated from high school. Writing became my passion, after I read "Bunnicula" by James Howe, in second grade. When I learned animals could be used as characters through personification, I realized anything was possible in writing. I published my first book, Fortune’s Wing, in 2009. Since then, I have continued to write the Fortune’s Wing series, along with the Valentine series, Valentine Apart, and Our Lady of Righteous Rage. I am also an artist: I have been drawing and painting since elementary school. I am a poet, songwriter, and guitarist as well. Hopelessly devoted to Green Day. My mother swears I have a great singing voice, though I beg to differ.
Woolaston Entertainment, was originally created in 1994, with the sketch of the first character, a black cat named Vanessa. From there, I began creating several characters, writing several books, and drawing a series of comic strips. The W.E. or "Woolent" you see today, was founded in 2009, with the publication of "Fortune's Wing". Today, Woolent is a collection of my writing, poetry, artwork, photography, and comics. This website is my way of sharing my creations with the rest of the world.

This month I'm focusing on the things that inspire us: books, music, movies, and quotes from famous (and not so famous) persons!

What are people saying about Woolaston Entertainment Books?
Very good!! Val is a “tough girl”; for the millennium. It's refreshing to read a story where the characters, plot and dialogue are completely new . I hope to read more from this author.
I joined Goodreads to get acquainted with some new authors and, I was lucky enough to win this book. Nicole E. Woolaston writes her heart out! If you like the idea of a woman, who doesn't take any crap, you will love her Valentine Series. She doesn't take any crap, yet, she is full of heart. This book is fast paced, with something always going on. I look forward to reading the next saga in Val's life. -----Kathryn Green, Goodreads.com
Allan & Mac:
Let me begin by saying this story has some really great dialogue. Allan and Mac both work as hitmen, which is, a dangerous profession. But the light-hearted and sarcastic exchanges between them make you forget that they're being paid to kill people. Its the first in a sister-series to Woolaston's "Valentine" series, and its worth checking out. ---ebunny88, bn.com
I loved Mac she was so gutsy. She wasn't afraid to do her job. Love the black dress story.----jparris, woolastonentertainment.com
Love Mac's personality and the banal commentary while indulging in the least mundane activity. Keep it comin'!--- Jennifer, jukepop.com
Really enjoyed this book. The author is very creative , and the dialogue is very well written. This is a must read.---Robert, goodreads.com
I had the pleasure to read an amazing book written by an amazing author. Fortune's Wing had me from the very first paragraph. It was well written and kept moving with great anticipation as to what will happen in the next chapter of the book. I can't wait to read the next book...and would like to see all of these characters come to life on the BIG SCREEN. Kudos to Ms Nicole Woolaston on a job well done. What more can I say: I LOVED FORTUNE'S WING!!! Now, I have family members who wants to read the book!!----Pam Coghill, woolastonentertainment.com
Our Lady of Righteous Rage: Extended and Uncensored:
While I enjoyed the previous version of this book, I have to say I prefer this edition. Uncensoring this story makes for much more interesting reading. The cursing isn't excessive, which is nice, but it suits the story and the characters. Plus, I really enjoyed the fake Rolling Stone interview at the end. If you haven't read the original version, its okay to start with this one. Personally, I hope the author publishes uncensored versions of all of her work from now on. --Ebunny, goodreads.com
The censored edition of this book was good, the uncensored edition was even better. I think adding the swearing back into the dialogue, enhanced the overall "punk" feeling of the story. I hope Nicole Woolaston writes the rest of the Our Lady books in this way. --RM1978, goodreads.com
What happens when you mix Cats with Punk Music?? Something freaking awesome is what!! ---Stephanie Young, goodreads.com
