August 14, 2017: Enos and Degenerate R
Hello, everyone! Welcome to blog entry number two for the month of August. This month’s theme is Comics and Graphic Novels, so, naturally, this post will be related to that. I wanted to share some more info about two W.E. comics, “Enos” and “Degenerate R”. Both started out as comics, but later became books (because as I have mentioned in the past, I can write a book faster than I can draw a comic).
The Enos Series
After appearing in several of my fiction books, I corralled Amy, Dee, Vanessa, Yvonne, Nyda, Carmen and Erin from Our Lady, into a Sailor Moon inspired sci-fi series I named “Enos”. In this story, on Natca, a planet far away, five young alien girls train to become Natcan Cadets. Four are named after precious stones (Diamond, Emerald, Topaz, and Sapphire). The fifth and most headstrong of the group, is named Enos (because I thought it sounded cool). Donya, their teacher, is preparing them to go up against the mighty Herron Empire: the alien race who invaded and took over their planet. However, Donya is summoned to the palace for an impromptu trip to Earth, before her Cadets complete their training. Her Cadets sneak on board the Herron shuttle bound for Earth, and lose their lives in a battle. Their powers are imprisoned inside the Natcan Cadet Crystal, which Donya steals upon arriving on Earth. She passes the Cadet’s powers on to five new girls (Amy, Vanessa, Dee, Carmen and Yvonne). They use separate pieces of the crystal to transform, and become the new Natcan Cadets. As the story continues, new Cadets join the team (Nyda and Erin) and new enemies arrive to challenge Earth. One note about this series: it is FEMALE dominated. The heroes are female. Most of the villains are female. It’s chick lit, so to speak. Which brings us to…
The Degenerate R Series
If you’re into anime or manga, you probably know about all of those wonderful shojo magical girl series. Female characters transform and use special powers to fight evil. If “Enos” is a magical girl series, then “Degenerate R” is a “magical boy” series. I’ve always thought of Degenerate R as the male answer to “Enos”. Rob from my Our Lady series, is the main character. He’s a college student, in the town of St. Moral, just trying to go to school and live his life. All of that normalcy is interrupted by the arrival of Mischievous A, a female “Militant Warrior”, clad in a pleated denim skirt and a camouflage jacket. She fights the monster that attacks Rob’s campus on the day he’s trying to register for classes. Rob becomes so impressed by her, he ends up becoming a Militant Warrior himself. Like Mischievous A, he transforms via a ring, and becomes Degenerate R. As the series develops, other Militant Warriors join the team, and fight an enemy known as the Blue Shadow Clan.
I haven’t published the books from either series, because I didn’t want to create a conflict for the OurLady series. I figured, it would confuse the reader. But, someday, I may publish some of the work, and it will be similar to Punk and Whiskers. These books would be unrelated to the Our Lady series, and meant to be light-hearted reading.
Until next week…
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

Pictures from Barnes and Noble's Bfest 2016!
Here are a few pictures from my book signing at Barnes and Noble last year. It was my first, and hopefully, not my last. You can see more pictures on the Woolaston Entertainment Facebook Page! https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.1163188870368555.1073741833.333379606682823&type=1&l=53159b2f6d
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.
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. 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.
