Free Fiction Monday: Familiar Territory
Buster’s final wish—a Viking funeral. Although Winston, a small magician with a small talent, wants to give his familiar his ideal funeral, he can’t imagine how he’ll manage burning boat at sea. Still, a Viking funeral seems a small price to pay for years of companionship.
But the funeral might cost Winston more than he realizes. He must break all kinds of laws—magical and otherwise—to give his beloved cat the proper goodbye.

Great story! Are there other Winston & Ruby stories? Where would we find them?
There are more. There are currently 4. I’m hoping to write at least one more and collect them. (And there’s a novel rattling around.) Here’s a link to the list: http://www.wmgpublishinginc.com/winston-ruby/
I love this story so much! Thank you for posting it. One of my beloved kitties died a couple of years ago now and I still miss her so much.
Thanks, Natalie. I know. I don’t think we ever get over those wonderful kitties. 🙂
