The Catmage Chronicles
It's been hundreds of years since the Darkness last surfaced, a grim time when both humans and Catmages lost their lives. But now the Wild Ones work with humans again, and thirteen-year-old Andy Cohen gets the surprise of his life when a talking cat shows up in his front yard. Goldeneyes, a powerful Catmage, needs Andy’s help. In the exciting first installment of this new series, Meryl Yourish takes the reader into a world of magical cats, dark powers, and a boy who finds himself entangled in their war.

I have nothing extra for you all today. May you have a meaningful holiday and an easy fast, and may you be inscribed in the Book for a good year.
A sweet, happy, and healthy new year to all of my Jewish friends, family, and readers. And, still stealing from Lair Simon: Don’t forget to start writing 5774 on your checks.
Time supports fantasy writing now: Karl Vick (rhymes with dick), the viciously anti-Israel Mideast reporter at Time, thinks that the Mad Mullahs of Tehran could be convinced to get Assad to give up his chemical weapons. Why? Because they suffered … Continue reading
This is a wonderful story. I read about it a while back and probably linked it, but here’s a video to get you thinking at the start of the High Holy Days. It’s a story of discovery and repentance.
