“Meet Murphy, an Angel Cat. An actual Guardian Angel in the form of a cat.”

“No, seriously.”

So begins the Amazon.com description of “Confessions of an Angel Cat,” a new book by Randy Tatano, written under the name Nic Tatano.

Tatano lives in Brewton and is a regular reporter and feature columnist for 1819 News. He is also the author of more than 20 novels, writing political thrillers under the pen name Nick Harlow and romantic comedies as Nic Tatano.

“Confessions of an Angel Cat’’ is part of an Amazon promotion this week and is free today through Friday. It's the story of a cat who is actually a guardian angel. You can download a free copy here.

From the blurb on Amazon:

“Guardian Angels take different forms on Earth, but in the case of Angel Cats, they’re sent on missions to fix broken lives. And while doing so, they strive to achieve a “heart lock” with a human, a bond so strong it will last forever. Their reward is to spend eternity in Heaven with their special person.

“Alas, Murphy has failed several times and is beginning to wonder if he’s cut out for the job.

“But when he’s assigned to Maggie Ryan, a seriously ill teenage girl who is ready to give up, he begins to see the proverbial bright light.

“Will he be able to turn Maggie’s life around, and, in doing so, achieve the heart lock he so desperately wants?”

Read Tatano’s latest e-book free from now until Friday.
