Sexy Men and Such Coming for the Holidays

Yep, my sexy sassy KitKats, as my author friend, Serena Shay, said on her bloggie... it’s one week away ~ THE HOLIDAY HUNK BLOG TOUR ~ next Friday all that beautiful manflesh will be available for your perusing celebrating pleasures.
And! There’s all the ebook prizes too! Meow and curl-up reading funsies.
Purring plus! As the Kougar yowled yesterday, she discovered a Mr. X-Rated Angel Man Painting she will feature for the tour.
Lots going on, my Big Cats! In the world, in moi’s personal world, in the world of ebooks and erotic romance authors. So much the Kougaress can’t catch her tail.
Sheesh! Grrrrr! Talk about getting ripped off daily at supersonic speed. There are specialized search programs that scan authors and titles at
Siren-BookStrand, then find illegal downloads on the file-sharing sites.
It seems each day e-piracy advances in tech-leaps and bounds.
The Kougar wishes with her whole heart, folks understood that the way you treat others will return in spades... what if you were an author and your book was stolen so often, you couldn’t make a go of it. What if you were a farmer and your crop was stolen so you couldn’t sell it and provide for your family... What if... it was you that was having your precious book being ripped off all the time?

Senator Bunning to Bernanke "You are the definition of a moral hazard. Your Fed has become the Creature From Jekyll Island"

Inquiring minds are listening to Senator Jim Bunning grill Ben Bernanke over the Fed's miserable performance under Bernanke.

Here is a partial transcript but I recommend playing the 13 minute video in entirety.

Alan Greenspan refused to look for bubbles or to do anything other than create them. Likewise it is clear from your statements over the last four years that you failed to spot the housing bubble despite many warnings.

Under your watch every one of the major banks failed or would have failed had you not bailed them out.

After taking over the Fed you did not seen any need for more substantial regulation of derivatives until it was clear that they were headed into the financial meltdown thanks in part to those products.

The Greenspan policy on transparency was to talk a lot, use plenty of numbers, but say nothing. You promised congress more transparency when you came to the job. You promised more transparency when you came begging for TARP. To be fair you have published more information than before but those efforts are inadequate and you still refuse to provide details on the Fed's bailout last year on all the toxic waste you have bought.

Chairman Greenspan sold the Fed's independence to Wall Street on the so called "Greenspan PUT". Whenever Wall Street needed a boost, Alan was there. But you went even farther than that when you bowed to the political pressure of the Bush and Obama Administrations, and turned the Fed into an arm of the Treasury.

Under your watch the "Bernanke PUT" became a bailout for all large financial institutions, including many foreign banks.

And you put the printing presses into overdrive to fund the government's spending and hand out cheap money to your masters on Wall Street.

In short, you are the definition of a moral hazard.

You are repeating the same mistakes as Japan in the 1990's on a much larger scale while sowing the seeds for the next bubble.

The AIG bailout alone is reason enough to send you back to Princeton.

I will do everything I can to stop your nomination and drag out this process as long as I can. We must put an end to your and the Fed's failure and there is no better time than now.

Your Fed has become the creature from Jekyll Island.

It is hard to add to that. Senator Bunning states the facts as they are.


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 342 ~

Sylva stared into the raw burn of Zeke’s brandy-colored eyes. “A good feel,” he growled. The next instant, he seized her rolling her beneath him. His harsh breathing felt exquisite against her own softer body. “Darlin’, my stud equipment may be temporarily satiated, but there’s enough of a ‘feel’ left.” Strongly, he rocked his cock against the indentation of her hip. “Well,” she began, “it does feel good.” Diving her fingers into his deliciously tangled hair, she continued, “Though, I had in mind a different kind of feel, a hands on investigation. You know, the weight and how it hangs.”

Zeke stared at his woman, then slowly grinned at the subtle teasing of her gaze. Still, he knew she was serious about his kind of passionate play between them. “This stud needs a rest and some good feeding before you go sizing him up again.” His wife danced her body beneath him with a sensual happiness that lit him up inside, brilliant as the ballroom at the Emerald Shamrock, where they’d danced in each other’s arms... where... had it only been so many hours ago? Now her smile captivated him. “I’ll bet his stud would like a good rubdown, too.”

you really wrote all these books? you're really a published author? wow! i'm impressed! and i really like your blog and your work. how does one go about getting published and/or catching a publisher's eye? i know there is so many people out there who want to have their work published. what makes someone's work special enough? i have dreams of doing things like being a professional writer or someone liking my stuff enough to want to do something with it, but i never know the steps to take. i'm not even all that good at the computer. can you help me? you really seem like you know your stuff. if you could could give me tips on advertising one's self, and steps to take to become something in the writing world, i would greatly appreciate it. my blog is Examining My Dance Pattern, on:

Troy, yep, I wrote all those books and have many more in the works. Plus, I have one contracted I'm finishing now, a few chapters to go.

As far as tips, it depends on the type of books you want to write. Since I write romance, specifically erotic romance, most of the time, I know the small print/e-publishers who are interested in those manuscripts, and thats who I have submitted to.

These days e-publishing is the easiest route to go for a newbie writer. So, the computer is your friend. Searching out publishers for your genre of fiction or if you write non-fiction would be one step.
Resources on line are plentiful as far as letting you know what publishers are okay and not scams.
Most e-market publishers only want to completed manuscripts. That means you'd have to write a book first, and get it polished up, as far as grammar, etc.
Plus, there are all sorts of good books that could give you much better overall info than me.

Happy Holidays!
