From 1994 to around 2005, there was more to Woolaston Entertainment than just books. There are comics and artwork now, but back then, my focus was spread more evenly. Watching a ton of magic-girl anime created the comic/series Enos, which later created Degenerate R. Plus, I drew other comics and a produced a few calendars to compliment the books I was working on. I didn’t have the money to have posters printed, so everything was drawn by hand. In fact, I even created a few plush dolls. Of course, I continued to write. I hand-wrote a ton of books, and every other year or so, I wrote a compendium, or a detailed account of all things W.E..

Comics
The comics eventually fell by the wayside, when the books took over. In the beginning, there was The 8th Dimension, my tribute to Gary Larson’s The Far Side. These were single-scene, black and white sketches (poorly drawn, I might add), which I created in 1995. Next, came my sci-fi series, Enos, which features some of the characters you may know from Our Lady of Righteous Rage. Enos concerned two races of aliens in a battle for a power known as the Neon White Flame: the power that was used to create the universe and the planets and was given to one race of aliens by Heaven itself. I completed the first comic book in 1995, and drew a few single comics over the following years, but ultimately wrote a series of books instead. There were also three other comics: Mike & Vanessa, Sarconi and Seybrook, which were featured in a 1999 calendar.

         December 11, 2017: The Early Days of Woolaston Entertainment






















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

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.














Hand Written Books
If you ever need proof, that the time you spent creating and drawing and being a bit of a nerd, can be useful, here it is! I started writing books for myself when I was in first grade, and I continued all the way until 2010. The only reason I stopped, is because I had finally published something (Fortune’s Wing). But all of that creative energy was not wasted. Nineteen published books and counting, with sales, positive reviews and a book signing, are proof of that. Fortune’s Wing, Valentine and Our Lady, all began as books I wrote within the pages of composition notebooks and journals. Like all of my hand written books, they had covers, spine labels, and summaries on the back.



Writing Goals
I’d like to go back to all of those old books and polish them, and publish them, one at a time. Some will need more work than others, but I believe it’s going to be a fun challenge. Someday, maybe I’ll publish a few comics, too!


Until next week…

My name is Nicole E. Woolaston. I was born in Queens, New York, where I currently reside.

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.
