The Edit Cave ~ So far, so good...

Weekend salutations, my Big Lovely Kittens, the Kougar spotted this at Coast-to-Coast am. ~ and thought it was particularly ghostie cool.

Patrick Stewart, right, saw a ghost while performing Waiting for Godot with Sir Ian McKellen, left Photo: SASHA GUSOV

He saw the apparition while performing Waiting for Godot with Sir Ian McKellen.

Stage hands believe he saw the ghost of John Baldwin Buckstone, who was actor-manager of the Theatre Royal Haymarket in the mid 19th century and a friend of Charles Dickens.

Upon coming offstage for the interval, Stewart told his co-star that he saw a man standing in the wings wearing what looked like a beige coat and twill trousers.

Sir Ian asked him: "What happened, what threw you?"

"I just saw a ghost. On stage, during Act One," Stewart replied.

Meow, yep, moi is in the edit cave for STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME, and so far, so good. The good-purring news, the editor particularly liked the ending and she also stated that she had a hard time putting the story down. Always music to an author’s ears.
Oh, KitKats, moi accidently frightened a big ole’ bunny rabbit when she went out to her van. Boy oh yowl, did that what tail fly up and bunny was off to the races.
Then, when she returned from her mailbox and got out of the van, there was a baby toadie... an adorable creature, who slowly hopped into the tall grass.
Hmmm... two hopping critters. Maybe, the Kougar needs to hop to... though, to what she has no clue. Boohoo... it rhymes... yes, it do.


Via Google Alert, the Kougaress discovered the handle of the person who illegally uploaded her book to SlideShare, along with several other Siren-BookStrand books. It’s kelda222. It appears this person is in Brazil.
This Big Cat still doesn’t get it. Her book and the others are obviously published by Siren-BookStrand. What right does any person have to SlideShare them. By contract an author can’t independently sell their contracted book... so what gives? Other than it’s a total rip-off for the author and the publisher.

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 245 ~

Sylva took several moments to scrutinize Grant as Zeke seated her opposite his sister. Grant was probably Zeke’s height. That’s where the two men’s similarity ended. He resembled, not completely, of course, but the actor who had starred in High Noon. Sylva’s memory hit a glitch. Gary Cooper. That was it. Grant had a stoic look to him, his gaze calm, yet with a mountain of iron behind it. He gave her a half-smile of welcome, his focus obviously on Ranson. In contrast to his deep tan, his hair, what she saw below his Stetson, shone a silvery blonde color.

Zeke made certain his Sylva was ensconced in the booth before straightening. “Be right back, darlin’. I see an acquaintance. Order for me, sis. And if you could help my wife, since she’s new ‘round here, I’d appreciate it.” Sweeping up his bride’s hand, Zeke touched a long kiss. Their gazes locked for a moment that felt like an eternity. Zeke pivoted toward Ranson, concentrating on the man, who by his body language already knew about Zeke’s approach. Though, he hadn’t glanced back. Zeke didn’t expect anything less. Still, it was good to know Ranson’s gunfighter instincts were still razor sharp.

Moi’s comment mew-sings ~
Ah, Ricardo, you are the man. And you express your admiration and love for your Cynthia in such a masculine and beautiful way. I am in awe of your penning prowess.
I must confess, though, the men whose stories I write would have fallen in love with Starr.
However, as is the way of life upon this wonderful spinning world, we all choose to our own pleasure and satisfaction. And so it is now.
May love always be yours.

Woo hoo! It's always cool to hear your editor say they like it!

Hmmm, two hopping creatures. Maybe the fates are suggesting a shifter story involving hopping creatures...or perhaps a fairy tale.

ummm, Patrick Stewart. There is just something intriguing about that man!

Serena ~ there is something intriguing about him.

A hopping fairytale... hmmm...

Gem Sivad said...

Ranson is not the enemy. I'm just sure of it.
