Hello, fellow werewolf lovers!

We wanted to introduce ourselves and greet you under the full moon.  Our names are Cathy Clamp and CT Adams, and we have written a new paranormal novel entitled, HUNTER'S MOON, that is being published by Tor Books on December 12, 2004.

We started with the premise: What do you get when you cross a werewolf with an assassin?

I suppose the best answer would be:  A good reason to stay in on the full moon!

We'd like to welcome you to the world of the Sazi: powerful shapeshifters who live hidden “in plain sight,” living ordinary lives… well, mostly….

Our anti-hero (!) is Tony Giodone.  Tony is a professional hit man whose life was suddenly, drastically changed when a hit went bad – the victim he stalked began stalking him back.  She used her superhuman werewolf strength to rip out his throat and leave him for dead.  But Tony survived.  He's the stubborn sort.  But now, every day he struggles to cope with an animal nature that is claiming more and more of his life.  Think about it -- how would you react when you found out you jumped through your bedroom window and wandered around for three days, eating live mice and ducks and didn't know it until you came to, naked and sore?  Imagine what it would feel like coming out again!  Haha. The book is written in first person, male perspective, so you get to drop right inside of Tony to find out.

But Tony manages.  That is, until he finds himself unnaturally attracted to a woman, Sue Quentin, who wants to hire him for a special job – to kill *her*.

Why?  Nah.  We'll let you read it to find that out.

But as Tony is drawn further into her life and her problems, the wolf inside of him clamors to be let out - and he comes to realize he's not the only one in the Midwest whose life is ruled by the moon. There are more like him than he ever imagined, and they've been in plain sight the whole time!

But now Tony has enemies in the mob AND among the furry. Sue’s family has their own agenda, and Tony is definitely in the way. Add in a rival hitman and a homicide detective who's bent on locking Tony away, and you've got the recipe for a thrilling roller coaster of a paranormal ride!

We'd like to invite you to explore the complex world of Tony Giodone. Meet Mafia Boss Carmine Leone, and his lovely wife, Linda. Play poker with Joey "the Snake", and run from a rival hit man, as well as the homicide detective who is obsessed with arresting Tony.

Come engulf your senses in a supernatural world where emotions are visible in the air like faded watercolors, and the scent of fear makes your stomach growl.

And once you're hooked and HAVE to read another one (LOL!) you'll be happy to learn that the sequel is anticipated in 2005.

Who are we?  We're average, boring people with regular lives, who like to imagine the world a little darker and more surreal (hence being published by Tor!)  We both live in Texas and have pets and families, and hope to become the next Laurell K. Hamilton pair of writers.  (She seems to think we'll be too!  She sent us straight to her agent after she read the book! <g>)

If you want to see what she said about us, or read a sample chapter and learn more about Hunter’s Moon and our other book, a historical fiction about Colorado's railroad days called ROAD TO RICHES, visit our website at:  http://www.ciecatrunpubs.com

We'll see you on the shelves and under the next full moon!
