According to Days of the Year website, today, Jan 21, 2017, is Squirrel Appreciation Day. I like squirrels. They are cute and fearless. As pets, they are utterly charming and entertaining. As friends, they are clever and reliable. They make especially good familiars for urban witches, at least one squirrel I know does. Her name is Beatrice. The is a magic familiar of the young Vancouver witch Darya and the heroine of my collection of urban fantasy short stories Squirrel of Magic.
I want to celebrate the Squirrel Appreciation Day by reminding everyone of my book and of Beatrice, the best friend a witch could have. If you like squirrels the way I do, you might enjoy my stories. The book is available on Amazon and other online retailers. It includes 10 short stories about Darya and Beatrice.
