Sultry Sunday - Movie Day
by Mary Quast

I love to curl up with my honey and watch movies. We are always popping in a new release but I have a secret love of old movies. In those classic flicks the lighting, the drama, the innuendos! Now when I watch those movies I not only find some sexy but also funny. Here's a little list of some of my favorites.

OPPORTUNITY! Authors... to blog or learn about Indie Publishing

The week of June 5th through to June 12 is now Independent and Self-publishing week at Lindsay's Romantics Blog ~ ~

Those who have started their own publishing company or venture - I'm hoping you will book a day sometime this week on the Lindsay's Romantics Blog and share your experiences there - and also your books.

If you've gone the indie route - please share.

Practical items - how do you find creating covers, getting isbns, reviews? What's it like dealing with places like amazon et al?

Happy Courtship on another Earth

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

Part 511 ~

Sylva glowed as if a lover’s moon had slipped inside her. Damn, if she wasn’t falling in love with her cowboy, more and more. She knew she had a choice. Wall off her heart or go with the glowy floaty feelings that had taken over her entire body. If anything ever happened... if Zeke betrayed her, she knew her heart would be ‘torn asunder’. Maybe she would regret crossing this bridge, or deciding to keep on crossing, as she’d been doing. Still, this conversation with herself would likely not end soon. She was damaged goods when it came to love.

Zeke watched the clouds of doubt disappear from his Sylva’s eyes, and felt her body lighten in his arms. He couldn’t resist swooping down and kissing her. Her little arms claimed his neck while her lips warmly and passionately moved with his. Unsealing their lips, Zeke tangled his fingers in her hair, then eased them through her long tresses. “That’s what a comb is for,” she teased. Playfully turning her outward, he devoted himself to drying her hair. “I like my way of doing it better, darlin’ mine. Any objections?” She shook her head, her tresses waving over his hands.

BIG CAT SWIPES AND COMMENTARY ~ Petty Power Chicks in Small Print/E-Publishing

It always happens, so it seems, those individuals who crave petty power, who actually think a power trip is the end-all and be-all of life...MAKE THEIR APPEARANCE.

There are SO MANY!!! GOOD, WONDERFUL AND AMAZING women and men in the romance publishing industry, one reason this Big Cat author enjoys interacting and making friends.

With the fast growth of small print/e-publishing, it had to happen... more and more, this Big Cat is hearing sad horror stories of how authors and aspiring authors are being treated by what she is calling the Petty Power Chicks. Perhaps, to make it fair and equal... also, the Petty Power Cockrells.

These sad idiots are so lacking in self-esteem and a real sense of their own souls, they figure their worth has to be *larger* than anyone supposedly under their ego-inflated authority. Yeah, slash and trash, an author’s, don’t provide honest and valuable info that would actually help create a superior story.

Who knows what these Petty Power Chick/Cockrells have endured during their lives that turn them into these pathetic Napoleon wannabes? Who knows how much negative subconscious influence is going on when THEY lord it over everyone, and actually believe their words are worth their weight in gold? Oh, yeah...that’s so true, in this gold-to-the-moon economy.

While this Big Cat can certainly sympathize with their internal anguish, there is NO EXCUSE for allowing this bully-cliquish behavior. If you’re perpetrated against in this manner, take action. Let those in charge know, even if they are going to back the person who emotionally bullied you. And, if they do, this Big Cat strongly suggests leaving by any means necessary. Find a publisher who values you as an author. Plus, with Indie publishing on the rise ~ that could offer you a real solution and could be the right direction for furthering your career.

If you choose to accept or be cowed by this reprehensible, small-minded behavior, it won’t get any better. It’s the same psychology as being abused by a spouse. Further, in this Big Cat’s opinion, there is NO room for Petty Power Chick/Cockrells in the small print/e-publishing industry, that is, if it is to continue thriving, if this entrepreneurial phenome plans to flourish in the future. This Big Cat author so hopes it does!!!

Flash and tease kisses from the Kougar...

~sigh~ Man, I hate hearing that fellow authors are having a hard time with the PPC's in the business. :(

Why can't we all just work together for the greater good of everyone? ~yep, I know I have my head in the clouds, but it's so nice up here. ;)~

Serena, yeah, I love having my head in the clouds and I wish everyone felt the same way, working together for the greater good like you say.

And, I wish there was an easy way to simply shun those individuals who act that way, instead of letting them have any power in this biz.
