It's the final day of Children's Book Week!  #CBW15
Why not celebrate with a critically acclaimed fantasy/mystery/horror story for brave young readers (and cat lovers of all ages) :D

'Burgess leaves readers clawing for the sequel. Kids will enjoy it; adults will love it.' 
~ KIRKUS Reviews 

'If you are the sort of person who sometimes enjoys being the first to know about something important, it's high time you read this. Because this is important.'  
~ THE GUARDIAN (UK)

'Five Stars -- a haunting fantasy not for the faint of heart.' 
~ MIDWEST BOOK REVIEW 

'Cinematic...lyrical...and quite often extraordinary.'  
~ SEAMUS CASHMAN

It's a World Premiere!

Enjoy a whole damn (and glorious) chapter of the upcoming THE CAT'S MAW audiobook, featuring the incredible David Kaye (Last Week Tonight w/ John Oliver, Transformers), and the haunting music of Tobias Tinker (Broken Saints, Stillness3)!

Put on your headphones. Turn off the lights. And breathe...for just under 20 minutes :D

I helped to pimp their first show, and now it looks like these utterly MAD (and awesome) prairie lads are embarking on an even wackier journey.  Help them get in on the air, and snag some dope rewards in the process!!!
