E-Romance Publishing Tsunami

Yep, my precious KitKats, it’s not a mere tidal wave, it’s a tsunami of small print and e-published authors who are speaking their minds in response to Deirdre Knight’s most excellent article about how Romance Writers of American views those of us who are not NY published, yet nevertheless published authors. The Kougar has been educated and had her own eyes opened in new ways by all the comments at ~ http://espan-rwa.com/the-digital-age-and-rwa-a-call-for-change/comment-page-3/#comment-130 ~
Kudos to everyone who has spoken out and spoken their own truth.

Ooooh, my Big Beautiful Cats, the Kougar received her FANTASY ME avatar from Kassandra Thrace of Fantasy Me commissions... yep and verra pleased yowls! Later, once moi resizes the pic for bloggie use, she will *present* her fantasy human self...

Ssshhhh... don’t tell anyone... but moi is considering hiring Triumph, Conan O’Brien’s late night dog comic, to perform his favorite *pooping* duty upon DTV and everyone complicit in bringing this nightmare system about.
Of course, on the up side... and there is a HUGE UP SIDE... moi will not be subjected to the inane commercials and the mainstream programming. No, most mew obviously, the FED/FCC has decided this Big Cat is not worthy of it’s subliminal messages, or its perfectly timed flicker rate.... tested out on primates many years ago at a Texas University.
Nope, moi’s brain will not become so much gooey mush to be straw-sucked up by Hulu’s Alec Baldwin and his alternate reptoid form... cause that’s how she kougaress-rolls... lithely and swiftly onto her paws... meow rumbles...

Authors and aspiring authors ~

Up for a new type of romance novel contest?
Serena Shay, author of THE CHALLENGE ~ coming soon from Liquid Silver Books ~ let the Kougaress know about this opportunity ~ http://textnovel.com/contest.php ~
If moi can get her act together enough, plus find out the answers to a couple of questions she had... yeppers peppers, she plans on entering.


Now ~ FIRST! just for the big cool cats ~

Happy Courtship on another Earth

X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues....

Part 171 ~

Sylva slid beneath the crisp, yet satiny sheets. Her weariness had overcome her and she’d only glimpsed the lovely selection of negligees. Besides, why deny herself the extreme pleasure of his ultra-masculine physique? Once she snuggled her head against the pillow and closed her eyes, she slipped into a half-dreaming state. Sleep eluded her because she waited for him. Her cowboy. Her husband. Would that become as natural to her as breathing? Thinking of him as her husband. And acting like his wife. Scenarios played out in her mind, long snatches of what it could be like, just fantasies, probably.

Zeke shed his garments rapidly, once he’d taken care to position his guns for easiest use against any intruder. Naked, he moved to a small fancy bureau in his dressing area. Opening the top door, he retrieved a pearl-handled derringer that fit into his palm perfectly. He handled it with consummate ease, adjusting to the feel so his reflexes would be lightning fast if he awoke from a dead sleep. He didn’t want to overly frighten his Sylva. She’d been through enough. He’d place the derringer out of her view. Soon he would teach her how to use her own.

Zeke is ready for trouble and Sylva is ready for Zeke. I like the way they are settling into each other's ways.

Keep them coming.

Gem ~ I hope you like the next installment.

I joined you at the Dorchester/Textnovel contest. I'm not sure I really know what I'm doing, other than the writing part, but it's kinda cool.
