Bundle Up Weather

Curl up comfily, my beautiful Big Cats, it’s bundle up weather on the tame prairie. The rains finally moved in very early this morning after a mostly overcast day. It pounded off and on, then turned cold and changed to a steady rain for most of the day.
The Kougar spent most of the day, figuring out ways to bundle cozily and keep the pain at bay from her slowly healing leg. Well-meow, not exactly, she created a new promo for THE HAUNT chat loop. She also read three fab blogs on three vastly different subjects.
Plus, she finally reached *her creative mind needs a break* time, and had the opportunity to fully read Pat Cunningham’s
COYOTE MOON. What a perfect, cleverly entertaining escape into the world of one werecoyote... more of a review later, however here’s one of the Kougar’s favorite parts ~
“We can charge straight into a pack of wolves, and get our heads bit off. But there’s a better way. The coyote way.”
Yeah! The coyote way!
Also! Talk about entertaining ~ scamper on over to SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS for an interview with LooseID author, Kitty Ducane... you’ll adore her and her excerpt. Yep and purrs, that’s her cover art up above.
And, ever wonder about Halloween jack o’ lantern lore... then stroll on over to THE PINK BLOG for Danielle’s wonderful pumpkiny blog. This Big Cat mentally rubbed with happy satisfaction.
Oh, and Werewolves! Did you know there is lore about good werewolves? Learn about it from this excellent blog ~ Werewolves in Ireland by Karen Nutt ~ ~

This great information gave this Big Cat author a whole new dimension for her black wolf WIP once titled, Kill the Black Wolf. That’s been changed to a chapter title with the tentative story title being ~ SAVAGE FOR HIS WOLF WITCH. Moi did further research into a name for this particular tribe of wolf shifters... created, initially, by an Atlantean woman, who is a revered specialist in genetically engineering animal species that adapt well to life on Earth.

Last night, while listening to Coast-to-Coast am, paranormal nighttime radio... Big Foot was the topic. Especially intriguing is the interaction some people have had with these reclusive humongous creatures, who seem to have a taste for apples.

Still, yowls of accomplishment, the Kougar did get a lot of penning done on KANDY APPLE FOR HALLOWEEN... *shivers* the villains have arrived.

Just for the Halloween lovin’ KitKats ~ a snippet ~

“You are found, daughter of Affrony.” The feminine voice sang in inviting tones. Yet, menace saturated the atmosphere. “Speak, so that we might introduce ourselves. Your true heritage awaits you. Come to us.”
Kandace remained paralyzed, barely allowing a breath to pass in and out.
“Enemy!” Zol growled the word savagely. “Attack and I will scorch your hides into a bonfire that will light up the black bowels of hell.”


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 285 ~

Sylva watched Zeke clap Ranson on the shoulder, then shut the diner door behind him, once he’d departed. She sent a prayer of protection to Ranson. From what she’d experienced so far, this was a safer Earth in many ways... yet not without it’s major dangers. Sylva sighed silently, knowing part of her was exhausted from dealing with her desperate situation on her Earth. Now, it appeared she had so much more than before, still, there was a whole new set of concerns that took aim at her. Maybe, her cowboy husband was strong enough to handle them. She hoped.

Zeke quickly sauntered back to his bride. Her welcoming expression pleased him mightily. Yet, what didn’t please him was the sheer fatigue he witnessed in the depths of her eyes. Everything had taken its toll on her. “You know what I’m hankerin’ for,” Zeke slid beside his Sylva and embraced her shoulders. “What?” She smiled radiantly. “I’m hankerin’ for dessert, for a cuddle with my bride, then a long time of slumbering. We’ll get a fresh start on tomorrow. Time enough to figure out plans for everything that’s come up, darlin’. Besides, we still have our honeymoon. That comes first.”
