Celebrating ~ A KNIGHT’S ENCHANTMENT by Lindsay Townsend

Evening meows, lovely and lithe-dancing Big Kittens, last night the full moon dressed like a lady in a gauzy white gown for a time... yep, the tide is rising toward a new freedom of the mind... here’s a comment the Kougar saw on a blog about book banning ~ The last thing we need is someone doing our thinking for us. So true. And right on.

Romance author, Lindsay Townsend, is one of the Kougaress’s fave authors and one of her good author friends... so, happy yowls, celebrating roars...

A KNIGHT’S ENCHANTMENT was awarded FOUR STARS from Romantic Times Magazine in the June 2010 issue.

'Townsend's newest book, with its back-drop of political and religious intrigue and mayhem, delivers a romance not soon to be forgotten. With characters of great depth and emotion, torn between familial responsibilities and their deepening love, this explosive tale will bring joy and fulfillment to readers.

'Joanna of Glastonbury, an alchemist, is forced to create gold for an elixir of eternal life to save her father's life as a prisoner of the corrupt Bishop Thomas. To her surprise, she is taken captive by the knight Hugh Manhill when he accosts the bishop in an attempt to ransom his brother, a Templar, from the bishop. After escaping, he and Joanna begin to feel deep emotional desires for each other. Knowing they cannot succeed alone, they join forces to free the prisoners. The stunning climax will bring them peace.' Four stars - Kathe Robin.

A KNIGHT’S CAPTIVE by Lindsay Townsend was one of the nominees for the Best Historical Novel category in the Romantic Times 2009 Reviewers' Choice Awards.

Claw snippet ~

“Hellhounds to the rescue,” Zol seductively growled.
In seconds they flipped her on her belly with a savoir fair that had her sighing in bliss. One of them unzipped, doing it slowly so the sound turned her on. “Mmmm... Zol, Zin.”

American Heroines -- Pocahontas, What Really Happened?
By Karen Kay

Good Morning!

Because I write American Indian Historical Romance, I thought it might be nice to take a trip back through time and have a look at the life and times of a true American Princess, Pocahontas.

Bluebonnets, Blue Eyes, and Texas Blue
by Celia Yeary

The title of my latest release, Texas Blue, was conceived when I learned my heroine, Marilee Weston, and her little daughter, Josie, had sky-blue eyes—or bluebonnet blue eyes.

AUTHORS/ASPIRING AUTHORS ~ here’s some info you might want ~


Place to 'pitch' to publishers ~

Below is info on a new venture that Trinity at Castles in the Air is trying - a place where you can pitch to publishers. This is what she says.

Hello everyone my name is Trinity Blacio and I'm owner of The Publishing Trove.

~ ~

Starting on Wednesday, May 12, 2010 every Wednesday will be Pitch day. Every author will be able to pitch one story they are either working on or have finished. These authors will use our group to pitch their story. I will than ask each author to write a small brief Synopsis of their story and put it in the files section for publishers to view.

This is a great way for publishers to view what stories are out there and maybe contact said author.

Authors this is a way to let publishers know what your are creating.

I hope you will join us every Wednesday for our pitch day.

Don't forget Publishers may also hold chats to let us know what they are looking for just contact me at: trinityblacio12 @

Thank you Trinity Blacio.

P.S. Publishers take note you do not have to say anything on the group. This is why I'm creating the files section if you want to contact an author you may do so with out anyone in this group knowing about it.

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

Part 487 ~

Sylva watched understanding dawn in Zeke’s amazing whiskey-colored eyes. He gave a nod. “I see what you mean, darlin’.” Sylva yawned, despite herself, and stretched. “Yeah, as I think about it, it’s sort like a camera shot. You could take an aerial shot of a forest as a psychic and get a certain impression. Or you can focus in one tree and pick up those individual frequencies.” Settling herself on the stool more comfortably, she asked, “Is it on?” Her sexy cowboy pulled up another stool and sat down. “Sure is.” He pointed the device in her direction. “Whenever you’re ready, Sylva.”

Zeke wondered at her hesitation, cocking his head. Leaning forward, she whispered, “Can anyone else hear us, see us? This needs to remain private between us for right now.” Double-checking, Zeke turned around toward the com unit. “Everything is off,” he assured. “Just you and me, darlin’.” His wife shut her eyes and appeared to be looking inward. “Okay,” she muttered, “there’s a place called Yarrow River Ridge and located inside the canyon rock is a facility.” She paused. “It’s lined in some way that inhibits psychic ability. Coon thinks they are doing all sorts of ‘dastardly’ experiments on the...”

WILL THE REAL HOARDERS PLEASE STAND UP... Yeah, that’s going to happen. While we are being exhorted to confess our hoarding sins as the common folk... oh, yes, there’s help, little people... just confess, we can help you... you don’t have to be a *whisper, whisper... point, point* hoarder... Okay, the Kougaress’s question: WHO ARE THE REAL HOARDERS ON THE PLANET?

Well, the Vatican, for ONE. They have an underground facility that has compiled a ton o’ ancient documents that none of us ever gets to see, or know about. Documents that could literally enlighten the entire world to a new consciousness. Not only that they have devices from ancient civilizations and current inventions that could uplift humanity in amazing and wonderful ways, including what has been called a time travel TV. That is, you can watch history happening for real. Don’t believe it, just do your own research.

TALK ABOUT SCUM CRIMINAL HOARDERS!!! What about the BIG OIL companies that are hoarding all those energy devices that would put them out of business in a heartbeat? Now, that’s REAL HOARDING.

AND! WHAT ABOUT ALL THE BLACK OPS programs... mygawd!!! They are the ultimate hoarders!!! The ultimate villains who have not the slightest compassion for humanity. Not those who control the programs, anyway. They have technology that is, at least, conservatively, fifty years ahead of anything we’re allowed. Some insiders say one hundred years ahead. Yes, the kind of technology that would dramatically improve life on Earth to the point where a *lack of resources* would no longer be a problem.

If hoarding in our culture is such a big effing psychological deal, why the hell aren’t the REAL HOARDERS in our world being called on the carpet? Why aren’t THEY being called on to confess? Why aren’t THEY being pursued and ‘helped’? Oh, the poor things... let’s all help them by relieving them of all that phenomenal tech, of all those books that were also in the ancient Alexandria library.

Hell, even the Smithsonian, and institutions like it, are GIANT HOARDERS!!! They have tons of exceptional ‘finds’ in their basements, hidden away, the ones that can’t be explained by the current ‘dogmatic’ theories of our past, but should be on display because they are real artifacts. But no, we don’t get SEE those discoveries, either.

Yeah, why don’t ALL THOSE who are so worried about hoarding as a psychological disease about to bring down the western world, go after the REAL HOARDERS, THE BIG HOARDERS, those who are impacting life on Earth in such a gigundis negative way, we are ALL SUFFERING because of it. Hell, the whole economy has tanked. Just one new energy source that is cheap and available to ALL would turn this planet around overnight.

Instead of picking on folks who are probably just following the natural human instinct to gather up, stock up on what might not be available in the future... don’t tell me our ancestors weren’t hoarders every chance they got just to survive... all these folks probably need is some real love and some compassion and a real helping hand when it comes to organizing. Not some psycho-babble crap that is a mental disease unto itself. Not some idiot so-called professionals who don’t OWN THE BALLS to go after the REAL CRIMINAL HOARDERS in this world. Geez, talk about little pathetic cowards wrapped in their own self-righteous mantles.

Hey Serena, love those positive energy vibes. Feeling spunkier today. However, there were all sorts of uninanticipated interruptions... you know, the stuff of life.

Hope you're penning is progressing well.
