Three Tricks To Not Getting Eaten By A Werewolf
By Jenny & Marshal

E.J. WESLEY: I recently sat down with Jenny—the leading lady and monster huntress from my Moonsongs series—and her best friend Marshal to have them share some tips on tackling werewolves. Here’s what they came up with:

JENNY: *scowls* I don’t know, run like hell? I’m playing Call of Duty here…

MARSHAL: Shush! These folks are after some serious advice. *whispers* And you do this for money now, so try to act like a professional. *primps hair* Will this be a video recording?

JENNY: *sighs* I just got knifed in the back by the biggest loser in the match. Thanks for that. Well, now that my Online reputation has been completely sullied, I guess I need to live up to something. Here goes…

1) Run Like Hell

JENNY: You thought I was kidding? Seriously, no one confronts these things on purpose. I was baited into my first encounter with a werewolf, and was damned lucky to get Marshal out alive—

MARSHAL: Me? I do recall you having a pretty close call yourself.

JENNY: Hey, you’re the one that hid in the truck.

MARSHAL: *crosses arms* I didn’t hide—

JENNY: *grins* Whatever you did, I’m pretty sure I saved your ass.

MARSAHL: True. Okay, what she said. Just run if you can.

2) Be The Aggressor 

MARSHAL: *raises eyebrows* You just told them to run.

JENNY: Remind me, which one of us was appointed as an Apache monster huntress, and received a super secret, old as hell monster hunting journal handed down through the generations by her tribal ancestors?

MARSHAL: And remind me, who is helping you decode said journal, and sticking his neck out for you for no really good reason other than being a friend with no other friends in this little West Texas town?

JENNY: TouchĂ©. My point is, throw logic out the window. It’s about survival. A werewolf doesn’t have anything else on its mind other than turning you into a giant-sized Scooby Snack. Assuming you can’t get out of the confrontation, you need to have one thing on your mind: Make it dead. Fast. 

3) Be A Good Shot

JENNY: Look, if you let a werewolf get close to you, it’s going to eat your face off.


JENNY: So, the best bet is to get real comfy with a rifle. Preferably one loaded with liquid-metal-filled bullets. 

MARSHAL: *clears throat to sound official* And what kind of metal works best?

JENNY: You’re Anderson Cooper now? Sheesh. *shakes head* Mercury, silver—whatever. The point is, if you don’t get that metal into their bloodstream via a vital organ, it’s probably going to be game over for player one. Werewolves heal superfast, so superficial wounds really only tick them off. Put a bullet in their heart or brain and get on with the show.

MARSHAL: *pats Jenny on the shoulder* See, that wasn’t so bad. I think you gave some good advice!

JENNY: You want some good advice? If you want to keep that hand, you should probably quit touching me with it and let me get back to my game.

MARSHAL: *sighs* You’re so touchy.
