Why the Mars Hoax?

Nope, the Kougar has not explored why there’s a MARS RISING hoax going on currently, one which she was fooled by for a time. It’s been circulating on the web that Mars is the closest to Earth since 60,000 years ago. And, yep, darling sassy Cats, moi did see Mars in all its glory back in 2003, as this article from ~ ~ talks about ~

Mars Makes History: Closest to Earth Aug. 27

As if executing a cosmic air kiss, Earth and Mars will come as close as they desire in the wee hours of Wednesday during an historical event that has captivated the attention of skywatchers around the globe.
... Mars rises in the southeast around sunset, your local time, shimmering like an orange star so bright it could momentarily be mistaken for an airliner on final approach. It outshines all other stars in the sky. Around 1 a.m. Mars is due south and high in the sky. It sets in the southwest at about sunrise.

Looking for the underlying significance from that great unconscious we all swim in and contribute to... what could be the reason for this hoax?
Traditionally, Mars has been known as the Planet of War. Down through the centuries there have been a monopoly of psychopaths who orchestrate and keep the wars of the world going when most of us on Mother Earth want peace. We want to live in peace. No, not on our knees as downtrodden slaves of the manor or of the state. But as free women and men who are responsible for our lives.
Mars Rising... the monopoly men are rising and the people of freedom are rising. A major clash is on the near horizon ~ as is evidenced by what is happening currently in our beloved country and in the world.


Authoress news and mews ~

Yep, the Kougar is blogging, once again, at HAPPILY EVER AFTER ~ here’s the beginning...

World Building a Room in Romance

So, if you write in the scifi/fantasy/future subgenres of romance how do you world build a room? Obviously, rooms can take on a whole new view and a different meaning depending on the story. Really, rooms in these genres are only limited by the author’s imagination.


Promo: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

Crystal Kauffman and all the rest of us authors would like to know ~ what kinds of promo work? For the Kougar this means: How does she reach those readers who would most enjoy her books and be willing to purchase them?
If you have any input, ideas, etc., or just want to add your two cents ~ come on by and let us know.

Note: The Kougar had one heck of a time getting the next chapter of CURSES WERE STRANGE BEASTS to copy correctly and remain as she’d written it at a sentence changed places... the italics went wild... so now, she is wondering if her other chapters are correct. Not having the time, right now, to check that out, she can only offer apologies to the readers. There have been other times when moi has spent tons o’ time at TextNovel trying to get the chapter to come out as it should, also. Meow-arghhhh...

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 242 ~

Sylva realized with a tingly thrill, she walked beside a man who acted like a gunslinger. As much as it excited her as a woman, and did it ever, she also felt deeply worried. For him, her cowboy husband. Right in that moment, she decided to learn how to take care of herself, and him, using the ubiquitous weapons of this Earth. She’d always believed in a married couple taking care of each other. Now was her chance to live up to that ideal. Letting herself enjoy his super manliness, Sylva also studied Zeke, taking note of his every glance.

Zeke intensely beamed his gaze toward any dark area that could be used to ambush them, as he and his precious wife strolled along the sidewalk leading to the diner. He’d let his protective instincts loose, to roam free as the ranch’s wild horse herds. His body was on high alert, taut as rawhide. In the blink of an eye he could put himself between an attacker and his Sylva, while drawing down on the villain. A movement caught his eye. A bird winged into the alleyway. Zeke thanked his lucky stars most people were still celebrating New Year’s day.

Zeke is definitely super-manly.

(I've had trouble posting on text novel too. I finally stopped worrying about format and just made sure it was readable, so it's usually sprawled rather than a tight paragraph format. Oh well.

Read your update on Curses. As usual, great job.


Serena Shay said...

Boo and kitty hisses about the formatting problem with Curses... When I read it yesterday, it looked pretty spot on to me. :) and it did indeed - Rock!!

Savanna Kougar said...

Gem ~ yeah, it's super frustrating. Oh well. I read all of your CAT NIP! Wonderful Big Cat sexy and adventurous.
I tried to read another gal's ~ but the paragraphs were so far apart I got a headache.

Serena ~ thanks. I hope it stays that way.
