What are people saying about Woolaston Entertainment Books?


Valentine:
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.  

---Elaine2013, bn.com


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


 
Fortune’s Wing:
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

​About Woolaston Entertainment​

​​

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.


 About Nicole

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.

The Boys of Fortune’s Wing

Fortune Oyama:
The boy with the Wings. Fortune has been having a reoccurring nightmare about a world he couldn’t save, and he only begins to understand this nightmare just hours before his 18th birthday. He’s part of a prophecy to either save or destroy the world. A little weary at first, he comes to accept his duties to find the Wings and protect them, and understands his role in the grand scheme of things. He’s very protective of people he loves, especially his younger sister Haverdy.

Duringo "Ringo" Fullerton:
He’s been Fortune’s friend since elementary school. He doesn’t completely understand the Prophecy of the Wings, but he believes in Fortune and is prepared to stand by him, no matter what.

Tony Morales:
Fortune's friend and the group's comic relief.  Tony enjoys making fun of Haverdy's tomboy-ish ways. But, all kidding aside, he accompanies Fortune on his journey, because they are friends and because he believes in him.

Adam Oyama:
Fortune's Grandfather, and the man who sends Fortune on his quest.  He occasionally appears to guide Fortune and protect him. A small quiet man, Adam can speak volumes with only a few words. He has special abilities, including the ability to put people to sleep and erase part of their memory, which comes in handy.

 

Polaris Poetry Slam









This past weekend, I traveled to VA to see my Creative Writing teacher from High School, and meet up with some of her former students. We had a blast, reading our poems out loud, and reminiscing on the old days (very old days, for some of us!). Tracy Rice-Weber, my teacher, still has a piece of artwork I created 18 years ago, along with some of my books!  It was great hearing everyone’s poetry, and if you like, you can check out a few pics from the event here:

Until next week…

Valentine, FW, and a handwritten WE book!

This is round two of the blog posts for Male Character Month. I’m sorry to post this so late, but I was out of town this past weekend (I’ll tell you about that at the end of this post!). But first, let’s get to the boys of Fortune’s Wing.

This was the first series I had ever written which used human characters, and it was the first book I ever published. Debuting in May of 2009, Fortune’s Wing is my only official YA series, and its my only Fantasy series.

Author & Artist: Storyteller & Writer of Unique Fiction Books
