Cat Oars has rowed the rivers and stalked the squirrels. Cat Oars has sang, danced, laughed and loved. We are a group of like-minded writers of all shapes and sizes, colors and creeds and what we've written will change the way you feel about the universe and the life you've already lived and the life you have yet to experience.
What's red? Blood? Roses? Wine? A dress? Lipstick? These stories have lots of red things in them. But nothing of any other color. There is a lot of red in these stories. You could say this book is red, redder or maybe even the reddest book that's ever been written. Meet the red dragon. Meet mean museum guard Toby. Meet the loves that were struck out of your life story by the red pencil of fate.
We were together. For about five years. All in the same place. Talking and laughing and bantering and comparing notes about all the big things: life and love and death and despair. Then we went our separate ways. After five years, we had a reunion. Want to see what happened? Then this is the book for you. Stories on a theme. How life has changed with the passing time. With a photo finish.
Stories of seekers and deceivers, stories of good faith and bad faith, stories of hopes realized and dreams broken, stories of need and fulfillment, stories of insanity and tranquility - stories of false prophets and true believers.
There are many ways to tell a story. Four authors construct dramas featuring a starving artist and a chimp, and each story forms a chapter, and the chapters form a narrative. You've never read anything like it. I know that because I've tried to find something to compare it to. And I couldn't. Fasten your seat belts. You're in for a quite a ride. Have a look at the other Cat Oars books, too.
