Brain Drain Day

A brain drain day, so it felt, my sassy KitKats, since the Kougar wrote her bloggie for the travel theme at THE PINK BLOG. She also revised the next chapter of CURSES WERE STRANGE BEASTS for the Dorchester/TextNovel contest, which will be winding up the end of September. And, of course, the next flash installment of COURTSHIP ON ANOTHER EARTH for her blog.
Good thing, she has some other prowling stuff to get done tomorrow where penning won’t be utilized. Her mind needs a respite.
Maaowwing also, moi received her final edits for STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME, along with the release date. Yippy! It’s right around the corner. Later, she’ll make a formal announcement.
Oh, those commas, though, they’re still causing mucho problems!!! Where they were added last time, now they’re not supposed to be there in the Kougar’s manuscript.
Personally, this Big Cat author doesn’t have a huge problem with how commas are used, with rare exceptions, as long she can understand the story and the style of use is consistent. Oh meow well.
Who would have thought commas could cause such consternation. With everything a writer has to contend with in creating a story, this seems like it should be low on the totem pole. The Kougar knows her comma use in BRANDED BY THE TEXANS is all over the map, simply because she doesn’t know which way to comma jump.


Authoress news and mews ~

The Kougar is blogging at Lindsay Townsend’s THE PINK BLOG on Wednesday, September 16th ~ ROMANCE MIND TRAVELS ~ or penning a story is often like mind traveling.
Meow, the next chapter of CURSES will be up on Wednesday, September 16th.

Dorchester/Textnovel contest ~

~ Chronicles of an Earth-bound Goddess ~

CHAPTER FOURTEEN ~ Lock, Stock and Cock

“I can’t,” Keziah muttered into the strangling silence.
“What am I going to find, if I run your fingerprints?”
“Nothing.” Thunder-Force Man wouldn’t find anything. He wouldn’t find her. No driver’s license. No ID of any kind. She didn’t exist in the system. Computers were notoriously easy to purge. A few drabs of power, a few directed pulses to the bits and bytes. Gone, gone in less than sixty seconds. “Nothing,” she repeated. “I’m a very bad girl... but I’m not in your Big Bad Brother police system.”

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 262 ~

Sylva decided Marina could be right. “Too much stress. Not enough food. That could be.” For a long moment, Marina eyed her from corner of one eye. “I can only imagine. I’m also bettin’ Zeke and Grant are okay or those abilities of yours would be firing up.” That caught Sylva’s serious attention. “You’re probably right. I’m sensing things are getting worked out. Whatever they are.” Marina eased back and lowered her pistol some. “My own hackles would be raised if Grant were in trouble. I could switch on his talkie device, listen to what’s goin’ on. But that’s invading everyone’s privacy.”

Zeke wanted to shake his head in disbelief. Still, he’d heard Matt, the Long Walker’s devotion to Stella in his voice. It wasn’t hard to believe they were married. Zeke trained his gaze on Stella’s brother. “My sister didn’t say one blessed word about being married. Yer lying.” Matt stood tall, straightening his shoulders. “As long as you’re gonna take me to Stella, I’ll go as your prisoner, if’n these two allow it.” Zeke glanced toward Ranson for his reaction. Ranson nodded, indicating they were probably on the same page. “You’ll be going back alright, Mister. That baby needs a Daddy.”

Yay, a release date for Stallion! I am eagerly awaiting!!!

Curses was wonderful again today...what will I do when it's over?? ;) Oh yeah, I have the bull, Sylva & Zeke, Tanner -aahhh and snippets of Branded! Yep, I hooked...heheheheh

Gem Sivad said...

Sylva will be fine with a man like Zeke looking after her well being. And it sounds like her powers are going to be handy in looking after him.

Serena ~ naybe, if I can devote time like I have been, I could actually get Curses revised and finished... ?
Is your dragon hero still dictating his story?

Gem ~ yep, they are definitely going to be looking after one another.

Serena Shay said...

Woot!! I bet Curses would sell like hotcakes!

Yep, dragon hero is sexily sliding along the insides of my skull, making sure that I still see him. He has however given the okay to work on the April Fools Day story that is due soon... :)

Savanna Kougar said...

How nice and cooperative of Mr. Dragon Hero... I'll bet he'll demand something for being so cooperative.
