I WILL LOVE TO WELCOME WENDY SCOTT ON MY BLOG AS SHE TOURS WITH HER NEW BOOK TAILS
“If you had a tail what would it look like?”
One of the highlights of my day is sharing breakfast time with my son. He enjoys challenging me with “What if?” questions. Several years ago, between spoonfuls of cereal he asked, “Mum, if you had a tail what would it look like?”
An entertaining discussion and much laughter followed as we imagined ourselves with all sorts of different tails. (Secretly, I’d always wanted a tail and wings!).
My author’s imagination fired up and I thought. “What if my tail contained magic?” And then my dark fantasy side kicked in, “What if my magic tail was cut off?”
The seeds for Tails were sown …
Heart-stopping, tail-dropping adventure from award-winning children’s author WJ Scott.
Sometimes loss is the only thing that saves you.
Last summer during the dreaded hunting season, Kywah lost his tail, his magic, and his value as a silvertail. Now the hunters have returned and he’s terrified. Especially when he recognizes Samsa, the very hunter that cut off his tail and ruined his life.
But when the pack becomes trapped in the foothills with no escape, Kywah realises he’s their only hope. Without a tail, he’s worthless to the hunters and their wizard masters. If he can escape, he can find help for his pack. All he has to do is locate the Wise One and retrieve the Deep Magic.
Which would be hard enough even if he still had the magical tail sense his kind are born with. But what choice does he have? If he doesn’t take the risk, his pack will lose everything. And because Kywah knows exactly how that feels, he can’t let it happen.
I woke. Heart beating too fast. Darkness smothering me. The same nightmare.
I shifted and felt the familiar throb of pain along my stub, which always ached when I first awakened. For an instant I tried to fool myself that it had only been a dream, but when I was brave enough to peek, I saw the empty space where my tail should be. Almost four seasons had passed, and I was still unaccustomed to its loss.
