What also caught the Kougaress’s attention was that it wasn’t only one giant cloud floating by, but a thick long stream of clouds. Okay, wanting to see this spellbinding magnificence from a better viewpoint, moi ventured outside.
No, this Big Cat HAS NEVER witnessed anything like this before. The beauty was beyond compare, the rose-orange light appearing on more of the streaming clouds... but, what was also so amazing, this traveling flotilla of clouds stretched from the western horizon, followed the southern horizon and wrapped around, floating over the eastern horizon... also, moi has never seen this type of huge thick cloud so low on the horizon... the sky directly above was blue-sapphire luminous... moi watched until sundown’s light disappeared and the clouds thinned...
The other ‘paranormal’ occurrence... okay, this could be chalked up to the imagination, then again...? right where moi could see it best a cloud formed the shape of a snow cone, then... do-do-do... a face appeared, resembling the character, Teal’c of Stargate SG-1. No damn meow kidding. And this Kitten girl hasn’t been able to watch that show for several years now.
Here’s a question that’s come up for this Big Cat, in this day and age... for a time it was all about being *authentic* in the ‘be your best self’ world... okay, makes sense and the Kougaress participated in several transformational seminars designed, in part, to loose your authentic self... and really, who doesn’t want to be their precious divinely-created authentic self, that is, at their core?
From moi’s way of looking at this, though, there are several problems... most of us have been trained by society and family to be inauthentic... some of us are so deep in this sad perversion of our true selves, it’s become our reality and we wouldn’t know our *authentic* individual beingness if it reared up like a cobra and bit us.
Okay, consider this reality, as well... currently we live in a world that is utterly inauthentic on nearly every level... the deceptions and the lies rule while the truth is a scarce commodity, and has been for ages... so, how in the heck can anyone be actually *authentic* in a world that is mostly inauthentic... that’s like asking someone who lives in the middle of a muddy field never to get a speck of mud on them.
Plus, who even knows what authentic is, anymore, except as an experience of yourself and your truth... if you can find it? Not to yowling-mention if you dare to express your authentic being... well, some form of cruel dangerous smackdown is likely to happen, especially in these dark 1984 times.
Two more examples of these bizarre upside-down times. Fringe used to be a good word. The suede fringe on a jacket or the silky fringe on a beautiful shawl, the sexy fringe on a flapper dress... ooooh, the Kougaress adores fringe on clothing!!! Now days, though, fringe is being used to describe groups of people who are supposedly bad or stupid or dangerous. Dare to be like fringe on a garment and now you’re suddenly the ‘bad guy’ enemy.
Okay, the second example... who in their right mind would ever want to be a passenger on planes flown by drugged-up depressed pilots? More than once, this Big Cat spoke with truckers who had been prescribed these SRI drugs, the same ones THEY are now saying are okay to prescribe to commercial airplane pilots. In the case of the truckers, either their depression worsened or they wanted to take their truck and kill as many people as possible. Now, fortunately, these men were smart enough to know it was the drug and stopped taking it before tragedy occurred.
Yep, there’s one more reason not to ever, ever get on a commercial plane. Still, the Kougaress would fly on a non-commercial plane where no one is checked for anything whatsoever... nope, the commercial-flight skies are no longer friendly... in fact, they are downright criminally dangerous.

Speed Dating in Shiftertown
By Pat Cunningham
The recent speculations on werebears got me to wondering if there are any other types of overlooked shifters out there, and why we haven’t heard of them. Or maybe there’s good reason it’s the alpha wolves and sleek big cats who get all the favorable press …

Moi’s Mew-sings ~
Hi, Nina, given your success, your approach in regards to the market certainly works.
I only write what I want to read. That's one reason I started writing seriously. I couldn't find what I wanted. So far, I think that means there are those who truly enjoy my books and those who don't. It's a matter of preference.
To be utterly honest, I couldn't do it your way. I'm not certain I could do it that way if someone held a gun to my head. And I do need the money.
However, my approach is to write the stories I love, the ones that also fit the market trends the best. I did that with my next release, BRANDED BY THE TEXANS. I've always wanted to write a western with all the themes I've included in this story. Not that it was an easy book to write, it wasn't, at all... but, it sure was a whole heck of a lot of fun. And, I am ultra proud of it, as I am all my books. They are books of my heart and my soul. It's the love/passion story my heroines and heroes want to tell, and live, and experience. And share with the readers.
I know I'm no help to your dilemma. I wish I was. Truthfully, I can't argue with your outstanding success.

Happy Courtship on another Earth
X-Serial Flash in Two Hundred ~ Sylva and Zeke’s story continues...
Sylva quivered inside like a leaf blowing in blustery winds. She had no idea if her psychic ability worked on anyone other than Coon and Snake. She wasn’t about to find out. Instead, she listened to Aunt Martha’s curt instructions as she worked on Snake with a wand-looking instrument. The glances Coon kept giving her didn’t particularly freak her out, even though he seemed to be attempting to penetrate her defenses, or read her soul. Who would have thought she’d be standing in a robe, holding a gun on an old west-like character, and threatening to use her witch powers?
Zeke kept one eye on his intrepid bride and the other one surreptitiously on Coon. He’d plug the man in a moment if he dared anything. Though, Zeke did wonder if his bullet would strike before his Sylva’s mind-shot hit the bushwhacker. That is, if she could use her newly discovered power that fast, not ever having practiced. One damn thing at a time, he reminded himself as questions about his witch wife began buzzing in his head like a swarm of angry bees. One thing he knew about her, his woman’s heart was good, pure in so many ways.
