9/2/09-- The day following the intention experiment [suggested in this show - Coast to Coast am] to cause rain covering the fires in Southern California, we were drenched. Redlands is 10 to 15 minutes from the fires in Yucaipa. The rain started out in the mountains at the fire locations and proceeded to drench Redlands. It has not rained here for many months. We should do some more experiments of the intention technique. It was the coolest thing I have seen in quite a while. There was also tremendous lighting and thunder. The thunder was so loud that it set off car alarms twice.
Happy dancing paws, my adorable KitKats, the Kougar has finished her first edits on STALLION OF ASH AND FLAME, coming from Siren-BookStrand.
And! Her cover art is almost finished. Moi’s sneak first glimpse... Wow! The stallion shapeshifter hero, Trail, is sexeeee-meow.

Just for the cowboy lovin’ big cats ~ a sneaky peekie RECENT-snippet from BRANDED BY THE TEXANS...
Kylie inhaled a huge breath, then blurted, “Why are you branding me?”
Dono unlocked his body and set the plate down with slow deliberation. He and Dash glanced at each other, both of their gazes asking, what now?
“You’re our wife, Kylie. Branding you lets everyone know that.” Dono scooted to the edge of the couch, observing her closely.
Folding her arms, she sank against the back of the couch and tilted her chin stubbornly. “Okay, what if I don’t want to be your wife in a year?”
Dash audibly gasped, then clamped his lips shut. He didn’t move, his fists clenched.
Everything inside Dono rioted against her words. “A year’s a long time, sweetheart.”
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 250 ~
Sylva leaned into the corner of the booth, her gaze glued on the drawn pistols of Marina and Grant. To her eye, they looked almost toy-like. Though, by the way Zeke’s sister and her husband gripped them, aiming toward the entrance, Sylva knew different. It had happened so fast, she’d been scared out of her mind, at first, thinking Zeke and Ranson were drawing on each other. From her vantage point, the three other people dining had drawn their weapons, and a man in a cook’s apron moved through the swinging doors, his rifle pointed. She heard the door open.
Zeke eased his body to a superior advantage as the door swung open. Once his squinty gaze swept the room, the Long Walker slowly removed his hand from the butt of his sidearm. Even more slowly, he raised his palm in a gesture of backing off. “Sorry, folks,” he growled, “looks like I’m not wanted here.” Zeke heard the owner move forward and saw the rifle barrel in his peripheral vision “Depends. If you’re here peacefully, you’re welcome. If not, keep on going out the door. Keep on going out of town. Cause the Sheriff is gonna know right quick.”
